Imagine you're a billionaire on your wedding day. That wedding better have a water slide, a J. Lo performance, and a cake made of gold. Folarin Alakija, the son of Nigerian oil billionaire Folorunso Alakija and his Iranian model bride Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifar just spent $6.3 million on their wedding. And all that cash seems to have gone directly into flowers.
According to Refinery29, the guest list included supermodels and fashion bloggers, which sounds about right. The couple tied the knot at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, England. They also hired "celebrity florist" Jeff Leatham to fill the venue with one million(!) white roses. There was a full wall of flowers, an arrangement that reached the sealing, and a room adorned in fireplaces made of white roses.

Just kidding! They had boring normal-shaped fireworks. Billionaires – they're just like us.
