Not what I'd choose

Riding TRAX can be an interesting experience. This I know from things I've experienced and from stories I've heard from other people.

That's why I've felt good that to this point I've been spared anything too dramatic while on TRAX.

Until yesterday that is.

I was hurrying off to catch the train after work yesterday when what should I see but a bride and groom taking photos at the TRAX stop. I had to wind my way around them so I could be in the right place on the platform. I didn't think too much about it except that taking photos at the TRAX stop wouldn't be my first choice. I climbed on the train and settled in to read.

Before the train pulled away I saw the entire bridal party--bride, groom, photographer and someone I think was the bride's mother--climb onto the train. This was no easy affair with all the photography equipment, the bride's train and flowers and keeping that beautiful dress off the ground. I was smiling slightly to myself as I watched, just thinking how unfun that must be.

I was surprised when the bride and groom posed right there in the doorway on TRAX and started taking photos, which may or may not have had me in the background looking on. At that point, I decided I thought these people were very interesting.

I mean, to each his or her own, but I personally wouldn't want my wedding photos taken at a boring old TRAX platform (especially with all the City Creek Center construction ugliness in the background) or on the train itself. Oh well! It amused me the entire ride home anyway.
