One positive about a super typhoon landing nearby? Above average beach wedding photos!
Typhoon Dujuan hit Taiwan on Tuesday leaving a trail of destruction across northern Taiwan in its wake. Taiwanese authorities report that the typhoon has claimed at least two lives and injured more than 300. Nearly half a million were without electricity. Severe winds have uprooted trees, smashed windows and triggered landslides. There are reports of damage being inflicted to the landmark Taipei 101, and Bon Jovi even had to cancel their hard-won second gig in Taipei.
Of course, none of that really matters on the windy beaches of Rizhao in Shandong province where dozens of couples are chasing after that perfect wedding photo provided by the storm. Apparently, a background of turbulent waters is a good sign for a new marriage.
Hey, it’s not Paris, but it is definitely better than your standard beach pics.
