Mengci and Fan took me to a new courthouse : Fairfax. They’re very serious about the no-camera policy (except the ones on our phones – those are cool) but they more than make up for it with their choice of outdoor location – you can get married right in their beautiful, flower-filled courtyard! So that’s what Mengci and Fan did, obviously, spurning the ever-ready conference-room action. An enormous troupe of friends joined them for their nuptials, in-between classes.
Right next door to the modern thing is the historic courthouse with all manner of lovely arches to play with.
And we hopped over to a lovely little park nearby for some woodsy action. Out there in the boonies, you can do that – the woods are literally all around.
I got like 10 mosquito bites in the course of six minutes.
