On my first day during my trip Beijing, I witnessed an insanely high number of weddings. Brides and grooms were being escorted into their "Just Married" convertibles and limos by their families and wedding parties. I learned very quickly that there are a few particular days during the Chinese year that are lucky for marriages, because they will guarantee a life of good fortune and happiness. In the above photo, I had stumbled into a mess of confetti and cheery celebration as the newlywed couple drove away!
