In March, the Russian billionaire Mikhail Gutseriev married his son Said. The bride of Said was Ingush student Khadija Uzhakhovs. All leading Western and Russian news agencies and newspapers wrote about a wedding at Moscow restaurant "Safisa". Everybody were amazed by the luxury of this celebration, in which the guests were entertained by Sting, Jennifer Lopez, Enrique Iglesias, Alla Pugacheva. A variety of assumptions were made about average wedding cost - from 4 to 7 million dollars. But everybody unanimously agreed that nobody can top Gutseriev’s wedding easily.
Less than three months later, the new wedding, which was even more luxurious than Gutserievs, took place at "Safisa". Moscow billionaire of Armenian origin Samvel Karapetyan (28th place in the list of the richest Russians, according to "Forbes") married his 23-year-old son Sargis. His choice was 25-year-old Georgian beauty Salome Kintsurashvili. The restaurant was decorated with flowers. Decorators and florists use mainly roses and peonies in white, pink and pale shades of red. Walls of "Safisa" were covered with huge portraits of the bride and groom.
Incidentally Built as a luxurious palace, restaurant (home of celebrations) "Safisa", as they say, "a masterpiece of gold, crystal and marble," was formerly owned by Telman Ismailov. The cost of the building in the style of Monte Carlo and Monaco palaces, according to some estimates, is $30 million. In November 2015 the Moscow Arbitration Court has seized "Safisa in connection with a personal bankruptcy of Ismailov, who owed a great deal of money to the Moscow branch of the International Bank of Azerbaijan.
Now «SAFISA» can offer space for up to 600 people in the main hall. The lobby area is perfect for a welcome cocktail. An integral part of the banquet hall is a magnificent balcony, where guests are invited to go to enjoy a pyrotechnic show program.
