Our Wedding, Zion National Park, UT

Mountain View, CA - Allllrightttty then! We finally have some wedding photos to put up. It's been a bit of a chore. We had so many photos to go through, and none of them were mine (I must have been a little busy that day). So, thanks again to everyone who took pictures for us! You got some awesome shots.

So, the big day was on September 27, 2008. We had the ceremony on the front lawn of the Zion Lodge in Zion National Park. Suwei and I chose the location for a number of reasons.

1. We love the place.
2. It's were we first met each other backpacking down the Zion Narrows.
3. It's not in Colorado or California so there was no favoritism towards any of our friends (we figured we'd make it a pain for everyone to get there.)
4. It's just a gorgeous place to be.

We had our friend Bill conduct the ceremony. We invited all of our friends. We both showed up. It was pretty much a perfect day. Here are some of the photos:

But first...if you like, click here to hear the music we used for the wedding:

Did anyone recognize the tune?

Jackie and Mike were recruited to read some thought-provoking quotes (well, at least the best we could come up with)
