“Lautar” singer Pasha Parfeny is no longer a bachelor! On Friday the Moldovan hunk and Eurovision 2012 star married the beautiful lyricist Yuliana Scutaru at a star-studded wedding in Chisinau.
The nuptials were a who’s who of Moldova’s music industry, with Eurovision stars like Sunstroke Project, Aliona Moon, and Olia Tira wishing the couple all the best for the future.
Pasha, who won hearts with his fun-loving song and impressive trumpet back in Baku, was all smiles on the big day. And for good reason. He finally tied the knot with his long-time partner Yuliana, who penned the lyrics to “O mie” — the lovely ballad that Pasha composed for Aliona, his sister from another mister, for Eurovision 2013.
You may remember Yuliana from Pasha’s video for “Te mai iubesc”. She also served as his translator at our very first interview with him way back at Eurovision in Concert in 2012. (You can watch that at the end of this post).
The theme of the wedding, as decided by Yuliana, was “Starry Night,” and ladies in attendance were kindly asked by the bride to wear dresses with sequins and/or pastel colours.
Aliona, who attended with her fiancé Vova, also performed at the wedding.
Other O melodie pentru Europa stars attending included jury member Nicu Tarna and singer Tatiana Heghea. Given this competitive bunch, we wonder who caught the bouquet!
Olia Tira chose a pale pink dress with a top adorned with sequins and a flowery appliqué.
Jana Berezovschi, a local designer, made Yuliana’s stunning wedding dress, which featured a silver sequinned, heart-shaped corset, which joined a billowing, floor-sweeping skirt with a very deep thigh split. Yuliana did not wear a veil.
Jana understands form and shape: she also created Pasha and Aliona Moon’s Eurovision outfits.
Pasha sported a classic look, with an elegant two-piece tux. A modern twist came in the silver chain attached to the groom’s lapel, which complimented his bride’s dress.
The party continued on Saturday when the newlyweds invited a select group of close friends and relatives to a traditional “zama party” — a casual daytime affair where soup is served in order to cure the hangover from the night before.
We wish the lovely couple lots of happiness and, as they say in Moldova, “Casa de piatra” (house of stone)!
