“All the girls were trying to catch the bouquet, and then suddenly from somewhere Vera Dushevina came and sprinted and stole it from me,” Maria Kirilenko said with a laugh.

Maria Kirilenko said that last week’s wedding between former player Elena Dementieva and hockey’s Maxim Afinogenov in Moscow was the best one she ever attended. Kirilenko went to the wedding with her long time boyfriend, fellow Russian player Igor Andreev. Other players to attend the Olympic gold medalist’s wedding were Yevgeny Kafelnikov, Vera Zvonareva, Dinara Safina, Svetlana Kuznetsova, Elena Vesnina and Vera Dushevina, among others.

“Elena and her husband were always with the guests,” said Kirilenko. “They were sitting with us, talking on the microphone, they were dancing together. It was unbelievable. Normally when you go to wedding, you are sitting and watching and it’s kind of boring.” Kirilenko said that the newlyweds performed a duet, singing a love song to each other while dancing. “Elena told me they practiced a lot. I was surprised she sang well.” Kirilenko said that before Dementieva tossed the bouquet, that Dementieva winked at her to go to the middle of the pack and try to catch it. But she had no such luck.
