From the Nice-Matin daily newspaper - "Antibes: Mariage Fabuleux pour un Milliardaire Russe. Un jeune Russe multimilliardaire de 33 ans se marie aujourd’hui au Cap d’Antibes. Parmi ses invités, on trouve le président Russe Vladimir Poutine et plusieurs de ses ministres. Whitney Houston, Julio Iglesias et Christiana Aguilera sont présents pour un concert très privé."
Apparently, our invitation to the wedding of the young 33-year old Russian multi-billionaire must have gotten delayed in the mail, so we were unable to rub elbows with the likes of Vladimir Putin and several of his ministers; and we missed the very private concert performed by Whitney, Julio, & Christiana. However, we were able to enjoy the laser show and the fireworks display from the terrace of our apartment two nights in a row. We hope that Andreï Melnichenko and his lovely bride, Alexandra, will provide a repeat performance here in Antibes at their first-year wedding anniversary.
