My sister’s wedding, May 20, 2006: the preparations
My sister M and her husband P got married on May 20, 2006 in Vilnius, Lithuania
The wedding took place in a Russian Orthodox church, which was a bit of a strange choice, because she is neither. Our family is Lithuanian, not Russian. She just really, really liked this particular church and wanted to get married in it.
