Finally.... Newspaper Wedding Announcement

I finally got Ruth and Praveen's wedding announcement in our local paper. It took me awhile to find the courage to open up the computer files that have hundreds of wedding photos in them. I knew I'd have a hard time trying to choose my favorite because there are so many really good ones.

They changed the wording that I sent in to conform (I guess) to the way that these announcements are usually written. In case the print is too small to read, here is what it says:

Ruth MacVittie and Praveen Krishnan were married Dec. 25th, 2005 in Coimbatore, Tamilnadu, India.

Parents of the couple are Jay and Debra MacVittie of Fulton and Santhana and Prasanna Krishnan of India.

The couple spent a month in India where Ruth was welcomed into the groom’s large extended family and circle of friends. They also traveled around the country with Ruth’s mother and several close friends from the states.

The couple hosted a reception at their home in Pacifica, Calif., on Feb. 26. There will also be a reception in Fulton on June 10, 2006. For more information or to RSVP please see the website at or call Debra at 642-8271.

The bride is a 1997 graduate of Fulton High School and a 2002 graduate of Webster University in St. Louis with a degree in business management. She is working as showroom manager for BSC Culinary in San Francisco.

The groom is a graduate of Indian Institute of Technology in Madras, India and later received his masters in Software Engineering from The University of Texas. He is currently employed as a Lead Software Engineer at Demand Tech in Redwood City CA.

The couple resides in Pacifica, Calif.
