Since the California earthquake has our mind on earthquakes once again, it's an appropriate time to showcase this dramatic gallery of photos taken on May 12, 2008 in Sichuan, China.

A photographer was capturing a couple on their wedding day in Pengzhou. Wang Qiang's breathtaking photographs begin with a shot of the church setting before the quake struck, then move on to show emotion-charged images of the people as devastation shattered the surrounding structures.

The aftermath of the 7.8 Richter scale earthquake was captured by many photographers, but its ones with a story line, such as these, that really tug at hearts.

This would be a great inspiration for a movie. Stats for Earthquake Weddings Trending: Older & Warm
