Quake Rocks Core of Chinese Province
Five couples were having wedding photos taken when the devastating 7.9 magnitude earthquake hit China May 12, 2008. The couples, who posed in front of a century-old Catholic seminary in Pengzhou in southwest China's Sichuan province, all escaped without inuries. However, the seminary was destroyed in the quake, which left tens of thousands dead in Sichuan.
