Wedding of Mika Chigirinsky and daughter of a businessman Vakhtang Pkhakadze took place at a castle, Zhavoronki event hall.
The eldest son of Alexander Chigirinsky - 25-year-old Mika married his sweetheart - the daughter of a reputable businessman Vakhtang Pkhakadze - Nata Pkhakadze. The wedding followed Jewish law and traditions: wedding ceremony, conducted by the Moscow rabbis, took place under a Chuppah, which symbolizes the new Jewish home being created by the marriage. Shortly before the wedding the bride had converted to Judaism. After the sacrament of the wedding the company moved to a huge tent built on the area outside the castle.
One of the closest member of the family - the brother of Alexander Chigirinsky - Shalva was absent from the wedding.

However, family troubles did not prevent relatives and guests from having a very good time. A touching love story of newlyweds was shown on the screens set up in the tent.
According to this story, Nata Pkhakadze met billionaire heir Mika Chigirinskiy more than three years ago. They spent together in love all vacations and holidays, and during the summer vacation in New York Chigirinsky Jr. made a proposal to his beloved. Young man gave her ring with impressive diamond in New York's Central Park, surrounded by looky-loos and squirrels chewing nuts. Groom adorned pavilion with lanterns, candles and placed in the form of rose petals the phrase “Will You marry me?”
