After John Alario and Trina Edwards' very public courtship, the two were married at noon Thursday in a private ceremony, with the only other people present being two photographers and state Supreme Court Chief Justice John L. Weimer, who officiated.

The short ceremony took place under the shade of magnificent oaks in a courtyard in the Louisiana Supreme Court building on Royal Street in the French Quarter.

Afterward, at a celebratory luncheon at Commander's Palace in New Orleans the bride and groom were beaming as they arrived at the private patio where 60 guests were enjoying drinks and hors d'oeuvres.
