CF gets married

    I met C. F. Wei in May 2000 at the spring meeting of the American Geophysical Union in Washington, D.C. I was giving a poster presentation on transport of aerosol from Asia to various parts of the Pacific, and she was the last visitor of the afternoon. We wound up talking for a long time, and became friends. The next fall, she wrote me that she was getting married in New Jersey early in 2001 and asked if I could attend. I agreed, and volunteered to take some photos and make a web show of it so that her relatives from Taiwan and her friends from all around who couldn't attend could at least get a feel for what the event was like. She agreed immediately. Then I got the crazy idea of offering to play trumpet as well, if she didn't have her music fully lined up yet. (I used to play quite a bit at weddings, and really enjoy it. Trumpet and organ are a special musical combination.) She agreed instantly to both suggestions.
    That's the story behind this little photo show "CF gets married." The rehearsal was on the afternoon of January 20th, 2001, in the Kirkpatrick Chapel at Rutgers University. The ceremony was the next Saturday, the 27th. I had a lot of fun playing and taking the pictures, and I hope you enjoy them, too.
