Yesterday, Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-Brooklyn, Queens) married Huma Abedin, the longtime aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Via Politico, Weiner's office released these details:
Today, Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner, surrounded by their family and friends, were married in the garden at Oheka Castle in Huntington, L.I.
The bride wore a gown designed by her good friend Oscar de la Renta.
Bryan Rafanelli oversaw the design and plan of the wedding celebration. The ceremony was officiated by President William Jefferson Clinton.
Apparently former President Clinton had the power to officiate (his spokesman didn't explain). According to the Daily News' source, Bubba was in fine form: "Clinton jokingly said that marrying a politician can be tough because it's 'easy to distrust them, whatever their religion,' a source told the Daily News." Clinton also "spoke of how they met and how she at first rejected but that his determination would not let up," the source said.
Noting how Weiner is Jewish and Abdein is Muslim, the Yeshiva World News headline was "Christian President Marries Jewish Congressman to Moslem Political Aide on Shabbos." And, for you to file away as useless information, Oheka Castle is where Kevin Jonas got married last December.
