Trump and Pence attend Treasury Secretary Mnuchin’s wedding
(CNN)President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence were among the throng of Washington power players attending Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s wedding to Scottish actress Louise Linton on Saturday evening.
But Pence didn’t just attend — he officiated, a source told CNN.
The nuptials took place at the historic Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, DC. The bride wore a white gown with a lace top and full skirt and a diamond tiara; the groom, black tails and white bow tie. The first lady, meanwhile, donned a flowing pale pink evening gown and the President, a classic black tuxedo, the source said.
Guests at the wedding, who were expected to include Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, first daughter Ivanka Trump and several Cabinet members, were treated to a performance by kilted bagpipers and ballerinas in white tutus, the source said.
The wedding was attended by about 300 guests, many bussed in by private charter from Trump International Hotel; it was an “elegant” affair, with lots of white flowers and white drapery, a source said. Wedding planner Lauryn Prattes handled the event, with Amaryllis, a company known for its dreamy floral designs, arranging the flowers.
Mnuchin and Linton will shortly move into their renovated Massachusetts Avenue Heights mansion, which the secretary reportedly purchased for more than $12 million.
Mnuchin, 54, and Linton, 36, have been engaged since 2015. They met at a wedding reception in Los Angeles in 2013, Linton told The New York Times. This will be Mnuchin’s third marriage and Linton’s second.
The pair has faced backlash for alleged conflicts of interest since their arrival in the nation’s capital.
Mnuchin, who worked at Goldman Sachs and as a film producer prior to joining the Trump administration, was forced to apologize in March after appearing to promote “The Lego Batman Movie,” a film for which he was an executive producer. In May, it was made public that Linton would resign as interim CEO of Dune Entertainment, a film financing company Mnuchin once headed, as part of his divestment.
