    In honor of Einstein’s 72nd birthday, friends and colleagues met at the Princeton Club for a celebration heavy on both merriment and press photographers.

    "heavy on" means "a lot of <something>. The <something> in this case is merriment and photographers – specifically, photographers from the press (newspapers).
