Sargis Karapetyan, 23—the son of Armenian billionaire Amvel Karapetyan, who sits at number 28 on the Forbes Russian Rich List—married his bride Salome Kintsurashvili, 25, in a lavish $2 billion wedding.
Here is the bride in one of her many outfit changes, dancing to Maroon 5.
The bride wore three different couture dresses by Elie Saab and Alessandra Rich, and jewelry worth $200,000, and that was just the start. Her accessories included a Tiffany Savoy headpiece, made of diamonds and freshwater cultured pearls in platinum.
Maroon 5 was the wedding band and was reportedly paid $800,000 for the gig, and Ukranian pop singer Vera Brezhneva, singers Alla Pugacheva, Valery Meladzem, Grigory Leps, Sofia Rotaru, Nikolay Baskov, Timati and Dima Bilan, Philip Kirkorov all performed. Folk dancers from Armenia and Georgia also performed to reflect both the bride and groom's heritage.
The wedding cake had nine-tiers and was covered in flowers. It sat on a large table in the centre of the room and reached the chadelier. It was created by Iyad Abusharaf, a chef who once worked for the Prince of Kuwait.
Despite being wealthy, the groom works as Vice President of his father's company and Salome is the co-owner of the online vintage fashion store Buy By Me.
In attendance for the fairytale themed wedding was the President of Armenia, Serzh Sargisyanu.

The wedding was held at Safisa, Said Gutseriev and Khadija Uzhakhovs threw a $1 billion wedding in March, where J.Lo performed.
