Is Ryan Serhant married? Inside 'Ryan's Renovation' star's Greek wedding by Brad Pitt's planner
Bravo is a gift that keeps giving. After 'Million Dollar Listing New York', the network has decided to drop a spin-off mini-series of sorts that follows Ryan Serhant and his family going about their business. Luckily for Serhant, he has had help in 'Million Dollar Listing: Ryan's Renovation'. Lawyer Emilia Bechrakis will be assisting him on his design adventures as they collectively try and upgrade the $7.6M NYC Townhouse.
However, now we hear the budget has overshot considerably. "We bought the house with the intention to spend around $1.5 million in renovation but we've already gone through a few curveballs," Serhant pointed out in one of the previews of the show. He has had to shell over $1.1 million in unexpected costs. Good for him, he has Bechrakis by his side to do some damage control and doesn't have to do the heavy lifting by himself.
Is Ryan Serhant married?
Serhant and Bechrakis walked down the aisle in Corfu, Greece on July 7, 2016. Theirs was a dream wedding thanks to celebrity planner Kevin Lee, who put together Jennifer Aniston and Brad Pitt's wedding two decades ago. "They weren't quite sure how to put a wedding together for 200 guests, actually a little over 200 guests. What they decided was they didn't want to have a typical wedding in the city, in Manhattan," Lee told The Daily Dish and added: "They wanted something romantic, whimsical and [about] Emilia's background in Greece... They didn't want to have an over-the-top wedding. They wanted this very beautiful, whimsical Greek traditional wedding."
It was understandable why Bechrakis and Serhant would want something more than usual for their special day given how he popped the question. According to The Net Line, the realtor, with the help of the city mayor and 50 plus NYPD officers, shut down Times Square for an hour to ask Bechrakis to marry him. Today, the couple shares daughter Zena, who recently turned two.
How did they meet?
The couple met at a Jewish party in New York City where the realtor had arranged for a client meeting. When Bechrakis saw him, she was apparently convinced that he was either gay or married. Fortunately for both of them, they were single and in no time realized the love they had for each other was for the ages and that together, they will be able to overcome any challenge thrown at their way, which they did when it came to a very tough IVF journey.
"Our own road leading up to IVF, was the toughest. I lost that light and bubbly disposition during that time. Looking back, I wouldn’t change any of it. You read that correctly. There were lows, but there were enlightening highs. When Ryan and I got to see one another at our strongest and even our best. We bonded more than ever before. Became a family before a baby and fell in love all over again," she wrote in a heartfelt post on Instagram and added that those were the exact moments during which she stopped expecting Serhant to be a "superhero" and started to understand him more.
