International singer Andy Madadian and singer Shani got married last weekend in a beautiful ceremony and reception in the heart of Hollywood, after dating for 17 years. The three-day celebration included a party outside of Los Angeles, an enchanting wedding ceremony on November 12 at an Armenian church and an extravagant reception at the beautiful Tagylan Ballroom in Hollywood.
During a speech at the reception, Shani and Andy talked about the difficulty of the last couple of years with the passing of Shani’s grandmother, going through Shani’s bout with illness, and the loss of their two dogs. Shani said that the evening was about love and were happy to share the event with close friends and family.
In attendance were popular Persian, Armenian and American singers, famous actors, comedians, and television personalities. Andy’s full band entertained the 500 guests throughout the evening, singing popular American songs. Iranian and Armenian singers joined the band as well. Andy joined his fellow Iranian pop stars on stage to sing “Khodaye Asemoonha.”
