My first wedding of 2016 was such a lovely, intimate gathering!  Susanne and Steve are both visiting fellows at the University, here in Princeton from Chicago for the year, and chose to get married in a sweet civil ceremony officiated by the mayor of Princeton.  Their bridal party consisted of their two best friends -- Susanne's maid of honor flew all the way in from Germany just for the ceremony!

And what a beautiful ceremony it was.  Susanne and Steve picked out some lovely poetry for Mayor Lempert to read over them -- readings that spoke to the depth and beauty of the marriage relationship.  And the happy couple were so filled with joy and excitement throughout the ceremony -- you couldn't help but join in!

And of course, with the couple's University connection, we had to do formal portraits after the ceremony on campus.  Indoor and outdoor, campus provides such breathtaking backdrops for portraits -- perfect for this academic powerhouse of a couple!
