Kris Wedding Album !

Recommended Posts

Kris

Dear Friends  :)

Sorry for the delay in posting these Wedding Album stills,since at that time the Off Topic Sub Forum did not exist,during that period,so their was no hurry for me to procure the photo_Cd from my wife Anitha's Family..

And another bottle neck i had was the uploading speeds,though i have a broadband ADSL connection of 512Kpbs,that speed is only for downloads,while my uploading speeds was no more than just 120Kpbs,when asked i was told that for domestic connection this is how it is..

And first off all i must sinserely thank Mr.Bo Goran & the present committe & Our modulator for trying to bring in some kind of off topic sub forum..

And iam doing this for my brother M@ximus & My brother Gileano Michado... :)

the stills that are comming your way is all that is seen in my marriage album,nothing less..nothing more ! And all are

invited to speak your mind and comments,suggestions & critisium are all welcome_i promise i will not feel offended..so speak your mind... :D

And by the way all the stills are sourced from the photobucket account and they are not downsized,so i would request that memebrs with broadband & large sized monitors will be greatly benefitted.since i did not have time to resize my stills to make it less than 105Kb..for direct uploading into this site_so kindly apologise for this minor hazzle ! And the stills were all shot by a proffessional photographer using Nikon D-70 wIth External Flash unit.

Okay shall we go to Kris Wedding Album ?

And those who have missed my engagement stills,and wish to see it kindly visit this link..

Kris:

Lovely pictures. I love those colorful saris.

My daughter went to her high school prom in a sari. Every girl wore the standard little black dress or the "regular" prom attire but Joanna stood out  like a colorful humming bird.

You two make a lovely couple! All the best to both of you.

Dear Clayton  :)

thanks for the hindi greetings & best wishes..it seems you have got their lots of north indian friends... :)

Dear Bill  :)

i must say that its never late to try ! and i think there is also a song by lioneal ritche..

And believe me even in those bussy marriage schedule,i was thinking about you & scotty...and i think you know why ! let me not eleborate any further..but living a life as single person is a very painful affair..since internally we happen to feel we are lonely in this life !even though one could have a half dozen great friends around..

So take this as a wake-up call,even i commited to married life only after seeing beautiful stills of kids of our forum memebers..let me open up to you,i was literelly in tears,and my palm seeds germination thread started looking silly to me ! since why i did not consider my seed germination.. :(

And arroagont Giant with no brains of its own(Me) has been passified and guided to its real destiny by our froum memebers attitudes & their families..And iam proud to say i have changed a lot and still changing... :)

And my marriage has really brought emmence joy in my mom's face,you can see that in the stills of this thread !And hypothetically speaking lets say this transformation had come to me when my parents have gone..iam shure my inner emotions would have been in war with me..god has saved me even from that guilt too...Since i reallised that the greatest well-wisher of a child is its Mom !

Love and Be loved !

Kris  :)

the hall where the marriage was held,was dedicated to goddesses Durga..Hence the marriage hall was named as

bhavani Marriage hall..And so its image is place in top of the marriage dias..

This is just a shaving gesture..in ancient times the boy who comes from the neighbouring village on bullock cart or by walk will have to take bath,clean his nails,dress-up neatly and also under-go a neat & clean shave of his facial hairs(Ref.to beard),if it has grown..

Here is the caste thread own by the brahmin boy's,from the time of his adolesence,the boy wear only one set of those thread around but on the marriage day the boy is given an addition one set of threads..this is a identification feature that the male is married and not a eligible bachelor anymore..!  :(
