Ryan Serhant and Emilia Bechrakis sound like they definitely had the wedding of their dreams. The couple said "I do" in front of 150 guests, including family, friends, and Luis D. Ortiz (!) last Thursday in Corfu, Greece. And now the couple is spilling all their wedding secrets. "I didn't know happiness like this actually existed. It's like a fairy tale," the Million Dollar Listing New York agent told People. "You read about it, hear about it, and dream about it, and now it's real. Someone pinch me!"
In fact, in a post on Instagram, he called their first kiss a "surreal moment." His bride added to People, "During the ceremony as the sun was setting, I looked around to see who was in the crowd and I was overjoyed to see family and friends that had traveled from all around the world. Especially my elderly grandmother who I am named after."
After they sealed their nuptials with a kiss, the newlyweds had their first dance to Ed Sheeran's "Photograph," with Ryan sharing that he "will remember [that moment] until the day I die. We were dancing as fireworks went off behind us and it was like we were all alone, dancing through the crazy. I will never forget that kiss."
But the event wasn't just about romance. Ryan said that he and his brothers jumped in the pool during the receptions — fully clothed. "As I came up for air, I saw everyone jumping in with us, with all of their clothes on! And we swam together until 6 a.m. with cake and champagne. It was insane," he explained. "I had developers and billionaire clients being dunked by my brothers and sisters."
Ryan and Emilia also dished about the most important aspect of any wedding the day: the fashion. Emilia wore a champagne-color strapless gown by Romona Keveza. It included a hand draped tulle bodice and flowing skirt with pearl beading. “It’s exactly my style,” she told People. “It’s what I envisioned, all these other dresses I tried on didn’t feel like me. This is made for me. The earrings I wore were custom 15.12 carat total weight pear shape diamond drop earrings that I designed for the wedding."
The couple's wedding bands were designed by New York-based jeweler, Desiree Nemati, who also designed her engagement ring. “I don’t really wear a lot of jewelry but it’s going to be a pretty baller ring. If I’m going to show everyone all the time that I’m taken, I want people to walk down the street and go, ‘Whoa, whoa, whoa!'” Ryan added of his new bling.
On Friday, Ryan shared a snapshot of Emilia from their Grecian honeymoon. "I can't believe our wedding week is already over," he said. "Everyone said it would flash by in an instant and they were right. But I rest easy knowing that I will never again be sad or alone knowing I have this beautiful woman by my side."
