DuPont Planetarium Wedding!

On October 27, 2007, Catherine and Ignacio Petro became the first couple married in the DuPont Planetarium. The bride and groom exchanged vows under the planetarium stars then proceeded to the roof of the science center where they and their guests sipped wine under the real stars. The wedding party and guests viewed the heavens through the Bechtel Telescope, which was manned by Dr. Gary Senn dressed in his tuxedo and starry bowtie. Campus dining served tasty food for the reception near the pendulum, and delicious wedding cake was consumed in the planetarium waiting area. Friends decorated the entrance to the building with a white runner and lovely luminaries, and God decorated the sky with a fabulous sunset as time for the wedding approached. It was truly a memorable evening! Dr. Senn and Darlene Smalley enjoyed celebrating with the newlyweds and wish them many years of wedded bliss.
