Rain is a good sine on a wedding day because it helps crops and future success.

Wang Lung, a peasant, actually takes a bath for the occasion.

Incense is burned to appease the Gods.

The poor like Wang Lung have to make a deal from whomever the peasant belongs to. In this case his wife belongs to the House of Whang.

Offerings are made at the temple.
