Obama hosts White House wedding for photographer

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama has hosted a wedding at the White House this weekend for presidential photographer Pete Souza.

The White House says the wedding ceremony for Souza and Patti Lease was held Saturday in the Rose Garden. About 35 friends and family attended.

Souza is a near-constant companion for Obama, documenting events at the White House and during the president's trips around the U.S. and overseas. The White House frequently distributes Souza's photographs on Twitter and other social media platforms.
