Yesterday I attended my first same-sex wedding (not that I have been to many 
weddings in my life, certainly less than 10, including my own). The two women 
getting married were Egle, a Lithuanian colleague in my office whom I have 
known since 2007, and Christine, an Estonian woman. They have been partners for 
several years, and now was the time to formalise the deal. The event was held 
at a venue called  Finca Marqués de Montemolar, in Altea, about 50 km north of 
Alicante, a very nice place perfectly suited for such event. I did not take 
many pictures, but I did have my little Ricoh in the pocket, so here are a few 

The overall scene:

The view from the Finca Marqués de Montemolar:

Christine brought Robbie the Corgie into the marriage:

Between the ceremony and dinner we were listening to some performers, in the 
1920s style, while munching on snacks and enjoying some drinks:

Now the humans are having dinner, and Robbie is tired and takes a break:

The couple, two ladies from the Baltic states. As teenagers, they took part in 
the freedom struggle as the Evil Empire was collapsing. Today, they could 
celebrate their personal freedom in a free country that has nice weather, too:

After the cake ceremony, I snuck away from the party and walked to our hotel, 
about 1 km away. I had been up since 5 a.m., done the morning bike ride and a 
day at work, so turning in at half past midnight seemed reasonable.
