Rep Dan. Newhouse (R-Wash.) is voting “yea” to a new spouse, tying the knot in a ceremony at the Capitol.

The 63-year-old lawmaker married his now-wife, Joan Galvin, following House votes on Friday.

The ceremony between the Washington Republican and Galvin, a government relations senior adviser at a law firm, was officiated by House Chaplain Patrick Conroy.

Newhouse’s wife of more than three decades, Carol, died last year after a cancer battle.

“I am overjoyed and truly blessed to be starting this new chapter of my life with Joan,” Newhouse said in a statement.

It's been a momentous month for Newhouse — he won his reelection bid for a third House term on Nov. 6. 

“We are so grateful for the support and love of our friends, family, and everyone celebrating with us in spirit,” Newhouse said of his wedding.
