Elie Saab Jr. and Christina Mourad tied the knot on Friday in a Maronite ceremony just northeast of Beirut at the Church of Bkerke, followed by a reception held at the exclusive Faqra club.

Many celebrities were in attendance, including supermodel Sara Sampaio and influencer Nadine Labaki. Legendary Lebanese singers Nancy Ajram and Elissa serenaded the newlyweds.

Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri gave the happy couple his well wishes at the reception.

Lebanese singer Julia Boutros and “Queen of Burlesque” Dita Von Teese also joined in the celebrations.

The wedding was lavish and glamorous, drawing much awe and envy on social media.

Mourad wore various designs by her father-in-law for her wedding, including one for her pre-wedding party, one for her ceremony and a different outfit for the reception.

The object of everyone’s envy was Mourad’s beautiful custom made dress by Elie Saab.

Twitter users admired the beauty of the dress and set their hearts on one of their own Elie Saab gowns for their weddings.

Many expressed their hopes for Elie Saab to be their own father-in-law, just so they could wear that dress.
