Dr. William Petit and Christine Paluf were married on Aug. 5 in West Hartford.
Dr. William Petit, the lone survivor of the 2007 Cheshire home invasion, has remarried.
Petit wed 34-year-old wedding and portrait photographer Christine Paluf on Sunday at Holy Family Passionist Monastery and Retreat Center in West Hartford.
Rick Healey, a friend and family spokesman, said about 300 people attended the ceremony and the reception at The Riverview in Simsbury.
Paluf met Petit while working as a volunteer for the Petit Family Foundation, a charity Dr. Petit set up in memory of his family after the killings in Cheshire.
Two men, Joshua Komisarjevsky and Steven Hayes, are on death row for the murders of Jennifer Hawke-Petit, 17-year-old Hayley and 11-year-old Michaela.
Hawke-Petit's mother, Marybelle Hawke, has said her family welcomed the engagement and encouraged Petit to find peace and joy in his life.
A blessing Rev. Richard Hawke, Dr. Petit's former father-in-law, wrote the blessing, which was shared in remembrance of the family.
