President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump attended the ultra-lavish wedding of Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in Washington D.C. The cabinet member wed Scottish actress Louise Linton, with a slew of other D.C. politicians and power players there to witness the "I dos," including Vice President Mike Pence who officiated the ceremony.
According to CNN, the wedding took place at D.C.'s Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium, a historic venue that sits near the National Mall and the Trump International Hotel. There, around 300 friends and family arrived to attend the opulent affair with the guest list toting the names of Second Lady Karen Pence, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer, Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, and First Daughter Ivanka Trump.
With the bride wearing a blush ball gown with lace detailing by designer Ines Di Santo, Vice President Mike Pence pronounced her and the Treasury Secretary officially wed. Then, a reception took place that included a performance by kilted bagpipers and ballerinas in white tutus, a source told CNN.
The news outlet noted that the entire event was an "elegant" affair. With luxury wedding planner Lauryn Prattes heading the event, the venue featured tons of wedding white blooms and matching drapery. But even with all that, it was hard to district from the President and First Lady. Trump wore a classic black tux for the occasion, while Melanie went with a pale pink silk chiffon gown by J. Mendel for her wedding guest attire, which she paired with Manolo Blahnik pumps.
Mnuchin and Linton became in engaged in 2015, after meeting at a wedding reception according to The New York Times. The Treasury Secretary popped the question with an oval engagement ring. "We were at Art Basel in Miami a few years ago and we walked past a jewelry store," the bride herself previously told Town & Country. We stopped to admire the shape of an oval engagement ring in the window. It’s quite an old-fashioned shape but I love it. Three years later he proposed to me with an oval ring just like the one we saw in the window."
