Two Washington journalists get hitched
On Monday, The Washington Examiner‘s T. Becket Adams and RealClearPolitics‘ columnist Anneke Green got married. The ceremony was held at Christ Our Shepherd church and was officiated by the Rev. Stuart McAlpine. The reception was at the upscale French eatery Le Diplomate.
To support victims of domestic violence “instead of the faceless wedding industry,” Green purchased her couture gown from Church Street Bridal. A Syrian refugee who is an “amazing tailor” in Hyattsville altered the dress.
“We had a short engagement as my father was diagnosed with ALS in late April and we wanted him to be with us for the day,” she explained. “Sadly, he passed away a week ago but I wore his gold Navy wings on my dress in his honor.”
The couple will honeymoon in Southeast Asia.
They will head off on their adventure Wednesday.
In her relatively new post at RealClearPolitics, Green will make TV appearances as well as continue to work for White House Writers Group.
More importantly, congratulations to the happy couple!
