This Is Called Love

from TennisEarth.com,

Former World number three, Elena Dementieva retired from the WTA at the end of last season and set out to make another vital decision of her life. She married long time boyfriend and


KHL star Maxim Afinogenov in a wonderful ceremony at the Ritz Carlton hotel in the center of Moscow which stands across the Red Square and the Kremlin on July 16, 2011.

The wedding was held on the roof as pigeons were released into the sky to commemorate the occasion and the reception took place on the second floor.

Among the hockey stars present at the wedding were Afinogenov’s fellow players, Alexander Ovechkin, Alexei Yashin, Ilya Kovalchuk, Vyacheslav Kozlov and Andrei Markov, former player Aleksei Kasatonov, Coach Vladimir Yurzinov and President of the Continental Ice Hockey League Alexander Medvedev.

Did the pigeons circle and circle until they found themselves trapped in a corner with nowhere to go?
