Russia’s wealthiest couples can now get married in President Vladimir Putin’s official residence.

Meyendorff Castle is the official Russian presidential residence and a Châteauesque architectural extravaganza. It was constructed at the turn of the 20th century for the the Meyendorff family, but eventually was occupied by Vladimir Lenin and other Bolshevik leaders.

In 1935, the grounds were declared a high-profile, exclusive sanatorium, where Mikhail Bulgakov, Sergei Korolev and Yuri Gagarin were known to vacation.

There is also a World War II cemetery on the grounds. What could be more scenic for a wedding?
