This luxurious European wedding is giving all other 2017 celebrity weddings a serious run for their money. When Russian billionaire Alisher Usmanov found out his niece was getting married, he decided to be the coolest uncle ever and pay for the nuptials—and, man, did he deliver.

Uzbekistani influencer Ganya Usmanova and tennis player Vazha Uzakov recently tied the knot in arguably one of the most lavish ceremonies ever, complete with a Kremlin-inspired castle as the reception backdrop.

The bride uploaded a photo of one of her dresses to Instagram with the caption "I couldn’t wish for better wedding dress! 💍💕 Thank you for making me feel like princess, you made my dream come true!"
