Former President Bill Clinton officiated Saturday at the interfaith wedding of Representative Anthony D. Weiner and his bride, Huma Abedin, a longtime aide to Secretary Of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, according to the Associated Press.
The 45-year-old Weiner is Jewish; Abedin,34, is Muslim and grew up in Saudi Arabia. The Weiners exchanged vows at Oheka Castle.
Weiner is a longtime supporter of Secretary Clinton, and until now, one of the most eligible bachelors on Capitol Hill.
Clinton spokesman Matt McKenna said President Clinton was authorized to perform the nuptials, but didn’t elaborate.
The new Mrs. Weiner had been dating the congressman — who represents Brooklyn and Queens — for about two years. They announced their engagement last summer.
Meanwhile, July has turned into the month for weddings for the Clintons. Former First Daughter, Chelsea Clinton, will marry childhood sweetheart and longtime boyfriend, Marc Mezvinsky July 31 on Martha’s Vineyard off the Massachusetts coast.
