Charlotte Pence, the 26-year-old daughter of Vice President Pence, is celebrating more than Christmas this holiday season — she's poised to kick up her heels with a wedding reception at the VP's residence.

“I just really like the idea of family all being in someone’s home, around a wedding," Pence said of her upcoming post-nuptial shindig in an interview with USA Today published Tuesday.

The author of "Marlon Bundo's Best Christmas Ever," a children's book centered around the Pence family's pet rabbit, is set to tie the knot with U.S. Naval Academy graduate Henry Bond. The pair was introduced by Pence's brother, Michael, a Marine Corps pilot.


Since getting engaged in July, Pence says her family has been buzzing about her upcoming wedding, scheduled before Bond deploys in 2020.

“Even with everybody’s busy schedules, we’ve all talked every day about it,” she said.
