Hi everyone, 

Our heartiest congratulations to Grandmaster Gabriel Sargissian and Liana Avoyan for walking down the aisle today. The wedding ceremony of Sargissian—who plays for the three-time World Chess Olympiad champion Armenian national team, and who was declared Armenia’s 2008 athlete of the year—was held at a church in capital city Yerevan. 

Sargissian’s wife, Liana Avoyan, studies at Yerevan Agricultural University. Gabriel and Liana had met one year ago. President of Armenia, Armenian Chess Federation President Serzh Sargsyan has become the godfather of the newlyweds.
