    Congrats to 2007 U.S. Pairs champ Brooke Castile and Kevin O'Keefe, an American ice dancer who skated internationally for Canada, on their wedding in Detroit yesterday! :)

    They met back in 2003, according to this May 2007 edition of Kids' Questions:

    Daria looks so much like Sergei! She even has the same glimpse in her eyes when she smiles:) They all look lovely!

    The U.S. Senior pair team of Kendra Moyle and Steven Pottenger (they competed at 2008-2010 Nationals before retiring) were married last month in the Detroit area.

    So this is the link to photos of Lu Chen and Denis Petrov's wedding that OP posted:
    http://kwantifiable.xanga.com/301304651/item/

    But I also found these online (on what appears to be Lulu's no-longer-being-updated official website). There are multiple photos in each article, just scroll around:
    http://star.sports.cn/chenlu/photo/life/2007-06-11/1172349.html
    http://star.sports.cn/chenlu/news/rd/2007-05-11/1137306.html
    http://star.sports.cn/chenlu/photo/life/2007-04-23/1122601.html

    I can't tell if these were multiple receptions they had, or vow renewals, or maybe even just photo shoots for magazines? They got married in 2005 but the photos are from 2007. All gorgeous pictures, in any case.

    And there's also this adorable photo of three generations of Petrov men: Denis with dad Alexei and son Nikita. Looks like Alexei Petrov was also an athlete?

    There was a feature in International Figure Skating magazine several years ago that used some of those lovely photos.

    :rofl: This is the funniest thing I have seen all week.

    There are some really nice photos in this thread.

    We probably need a thread also titled "Royal figure skating divorces".

    Nightmare :)



    Good idea but divorces are not so cheerful even when everything is quiet and civil like in Anton Sikharulidze's case. After fairy tale wedding his wife filed for divorce and he accepted as real gentleman but they remained friends.Anyway, since July 2013 Mr.Sikharulidze is single again...Those kind of news sound like an obituary and i most definitely won't be the one to start the D tread :)
    Ending this off topic with the link about Anton's divorce:

    ^ Right on, Vivika. I would also hate to see a divorce thread started. Life is stressful/painful enough!

    Nicholas Buckland just tweeted that he has arrived in Edinburgh, Scotland for the wedding of John Kerr and Nadine Ahmed (June 21, according to post #61).

    Oh yeah and Charlie White and Tanith Belbin got engaged recently in Hawaii. ;)
