Get married at Penn like these couples – part deux

Last month, I came across some great wedding shots on Penn’s campus of a couple who actually met at Penn (turns out you could actually get married at Penn!)

Since I posted that article, another couple who met as undergrads at Penn came forward with some great wedding shots on Penn’s campus.

After the jump check them out!

Another Penn love story here on DT!

Laura Duvall (C’07) and John Paulett (C’07) got married in the Bishop White room of Houston Hall in September 2010.

Per John,

“We had a small ceremony with our families, presided over by the Penn Chaplain, Chaz Howard.”

I asked John how they met and it was based on miscommunication and lots of patience on Laura’s part:

“Laura and I first met in Houston Hall when we were sophomores. I was meeting my bioengineering lab group at Houston Hall, near La Petite Creperie, to work on a report.  One of my lab partners originally told Laura he was going to be studying at Houston Hall that night for a different class they were both in, but failed to mention that it was actually a group meeting.  Laura stuck around through the meeting, doing her own homework while enduring our engineering-banter.

We went on our first date a few months later (the last day before spring break–I just made my flight home that night).  I proposed to Laura exactly 5 years later.”

The beautiful photos you see were taken by Jennifer Ludwig, Mt. Holly, N.J,
