It’s the wedding we can’t stop talking about! Seychelles Consul General Justin Etzin and model, Lana Zakocela tied-the-knot in Florence and it was beyond glamourous. From celeb guests, to a Cirque Du Soleil performance, this wedding was a total dream.
If you thought Kim Kardashian had a fabulous wedding, you need to hear about Justin Etzin, 38, and 27-year-old Lana Zakocela‘s wedding that would rival any royal wedding. The well-known business man and his longtime girlfriend wed at the famous Villa San Michele in Florence and it was unbelievable.
But before we get to the ceremony and reception, we have to tell you about the days leading up to the big day. Guests partied at Villa Le Rose, the private villa of Salvatore Ferragamo, and the Villa Collazi, the private villa of Bona Frescobaldi before their outdoor wedding on Aug. 22. Seychelles President James Mancham, Lindsay Lohan, Lord Edward Spencer-Churchill, photographer Ellen Von Unwerth, Will and Lohralee Astor, Prince Mubarak Al Sabah and host, Micah Jesse were all in attendance.
“We were so blessed to be surrounded by friends & family from all over the world to celebrate our marriage,” the bride told HollywoodLife.com. “I spent my early years growing up in the forest in Latvia and with such an important moment in my life I wanted to get married in the woods surrounded by nature and beauty. Our ceremony therefore was in a small woods near where the reception took place. My dress was especially made by Mark Zunino who took the forrest theme & created such a beautiful wedding gown”
Immediately following the jaw-dropping nuptials, the black tie wedding continued with a performance by singer, Craig David that had guests singing along to his famous song, “Seven Days.”
HollywoodLifers, this was totally the wedding of the year, perhaps even the decade!
