Very COOL bride groom on white horse!

Jama,

They reported that they were making their wedding into a reality movie titled: The Fat Indian Wedding, a copy cat of the Fat Greek wedding. They are going to show it in India to millions of viewers. Many people in New Zealand couldn't comprehend why you want to make your wedding a public spectacle. There was so much excess.

This was why I didn't post the photos when the wedding took place in January, though I happened to be there, when never before did the authorities close a road to fscilitate a private event. I overheard the securities saying the main Television were banned from covering the wedding.

George, you were right, the groom's dad spoke on TV that it was the biggest wedding ever. He is a billionaire based in Chicago.

Sort of like a Knight on his White horse. What elegant clothes.


If the groom looks this good, wonder what the bride looks like!
