If you weren't a guest at a politically plugged-in wedding this past weekend, then you might not be as well connected as you think. Eight influential political couples tied the knot. Here's a recap:
Topping the list in the prestige department was White House Deputy Press Secretary Jen Psaki's wedding to Rep. Steve Driehaus's (D-Ohio) chief of staff, Greg Mecher (pictured here with his bride). The ceremony was held on the Chesapeake Bay, and First Lady Michelle Obama's spokeswoman, Katie McCormick-Lelyveld, was among the bridesmaids.
Halfway across the country, but equally A-list, was the wedding of former George W. Bush letter-writer Amanda Aulds, who works for the Barbara Bush Foundation, and David Sherzer, who serves as a spokesman for the 43rd president.
Held at the Dallas Arboretum, the ceremony and reception were attended by a rare set of VIPs: former President George H.W. Bush and his son, former President George W. Bush, as well as both of their spouses.
A few miles away from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave., Naomi Seller, a lawyer for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, married Eric Columbus, a senior member of the Deputy Attorney General's staff, at the River Farm, Va. Columbus made headlines this year when Liz Cheney revealed that he was one of seven Justice Department lawyers who had represented Guantanamo Bay inmates.
A popular member of the Fourth Estate, ABC News producer Jason Ryan (son of legendary local weatherman Bob Ryan) got hitched to Bechtel manager Catherine Hunt.
Also in Washington, JBG associate Quinn Rounsaville married teacher Megan Lucey. Rounsaville's dad, John Rounsaville, was a longtime partner at WilmerHale.
Former Sen. David Karnes's (R-Neb.) daughter, Kalen, married Chris Strickland, and former Rep. Jim Coyne's (R-Pa.) daughter, Katherine Coyne, became Mrs. Ryan Coyle.
Closer to Capitol Hill were the nuptials of Elizabeth Bellis, the daughter of House Legislative Counsel senior staffer Doug Bellis. Elizabeth married environmental lobbyist Josh Wolfe.
ITK congratulates the newlyweds. Despite a viciously partisan climate, It's nice to see that love still blooms in D.C.
