Vice President Mike Pence‘s youngest daughter Audrey, 26, has married her Northeastern University sweetheart, Daniel Tomanelli, 25, in a small ‘Quaker marriage’ on the steps of a courthouse in Washington DC – three years after he survived a plane crash that tragically killed his father.
Audrey and Daniel tied the knot outside the Moultrie Courthouse on November 1 surrounded by just 12 guests, after their original 80-person Hawaiian nuptials were axed due to the pandemic.
The couple opted for a ‘self-uniting style’ ceremony where there is no third party to officiate the wedding.
The non-denominational style is also known as a ‘Quaker marriage’ – a marked departure from her father’s devout evangelical Christian faith, after he previously described himself as ‘a Christian, a conservative and a Republican, in that order.’
The nuptials took place just two days before the presidential election.
Audrey, the youngest child of Donald Trump’s right-hand man and Second Lady Karen Pence, shared on her Instagram page a black-and-white picture of herself and her new husband sharing a kiss as their small guest-list looked on.
She penned: ‘Thank you to these two beautiful families for joyfully coming alongside us when we decided to throw together a courthouse ceremony in 10 days. We are truly blessed.’
She also posted a color picture of the newlyweds, writing: ‘Married // November 1st, 2020.’
