Fashion designer Zuhair Murad — whose couture line has been worn by celebrities like Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce — posted photos of Lilit in her wedding gown.

Event designer Aram Lobyan helped plan the events of the day and posted a video showing the lavish decorations, including a lighted path that started outside of the church and went all the way up to the altar.

The reception was held at the Safisa banquet hall. There, guests were greeted under a ceiling of flowers.

Once inside, guests found floating bouquets above each table.
