Wedding Train: Stop #6

The Langham Huntington Hotel
Pasadena, CA

This is a very photo heavy post. I tried to condense everything into a collage. First up are the pictures from the wedding, because inquiring minds want to know! The red cloth pictured below is a traditional Chinese guestbook. Everyone signs the fabric (usually silk) and the couple displays it in their home.

Since the wedding was in California over Labor Day weekend, we were able to take advantage of the long weekend and see a few sites. This second collage is of random photos taken around the area; mostly of the mountain range, because I miss being surrounded by LARGE mountians. And of course, I had to swing by the Rose Bowl just to check things out. Unfortunately, it was locked down tight and my dreams of walking onto the turf were shattered.

Personal photos - views from the hotel (The Westin Pasadena), Rose Bowl, randoms.
Over the years, we've made it part of our trips to stop by the local zoo (only if it's a good zoo). You see, Jake LOVES animals. I read up on this, it's an only child thing.

Lastly, the day of the wedding, we decided to hit up gardens at The Hungtington Library. What a gorgeous and sprawling place.  We wandered though the desert garden, the jungle garden, as well as both the Japanese and Chinese gardens. I think we also walked though the lily pad pond and Australian garden. If only we had more time and it wasn't so damned hot. We called it quits before hitting the rose garden. We though "we've seen the Portland International Rose Garden and the one in Boston, we won't miss much." Later we found out we were wrong. I suppose it just gives us a reason to go back.
