The Arnemann clan of Broad Channel were out in force in all their finery recently to attend the wedding of Diane and Charles Arenemann's son, Mark, to his beautiful new wife, Svetlana Stolyarova, over at the Baku Palace in Sheepshead Bay. A great time was had by all including our own, and might I add very dapper, Dan Mundy Jr., who proved himself to be not only a great civic leader but nimble of foot as well while tripping the lights fantastic! One of the highlights of the day came when Mark's children, Jamie and Randy, were handed a microphone and asked to each say a few words to their newly married father and stepmother. After Jamie finished with her well wishes for the new couple in front of the assembled crowd she handed the mic to her obviously very nervous brother, Randy, who had the entire room laughing when he was only able to get out four words - "Yeah, what she said!" Mark and Svetlana, who hails from Russia, were soon on their way to Alaska as part of their honeymoon but will shortly be departing for the "Land of the Tsars" to do it all again for Svetlana's parents and relatives who were unable to attend the happy event here in New York.
Who knew? A Russian connection right here in Broad Channel! Why would anyone want to live anywhere else?
