Against the backdrop of one of the most iconic buildings on campus, the bride reads her vows to the groom.
This couple found themselves far from home when they decided to begin their lives together as husband and wife. While they were both from China, the groom was studying at Princeton University in New Jersey, so they decided to hold an outdoor ceremony in front of the historic buildings on campus. It was a sweet and simple ceremony witnessed in person by a few friends and experienced virtually by their parents.

Their friends who were able to attend the outdoor ceremony in person didn't want to miss a moment. They captured the ceremony from start to finish, allowing them to share the experience with those who were not able to be there.
As the groom brims with pride, the bride lifts her bouquet in the air in order to celebrate the moment that they became husband and wife.
A four-legged guest hops into the groom's arms in the moments following the ceremony, much to the delight of the bride who can't resist greeting the pup.
Donning a mischievous yet adoring look on her face, the bride raises a forkful of cake and offers the love of her life a bite. Despite the fact that they opted for a short and simple outdoor elopement ceremony, the couple still included many timeless traditions into their wedding day.
