House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently officiated a lavish wedding in San Francisco between model Ivy Getty, described by Vogue as among the heiresses to the Getty oil fortune, and photographer Tobias Alexander Engelin.
Among those reportedly in attendance at the celebration were California Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) and San Francisco Mayor London Breed.
In a lengthy feature, Vogue didn’t spare any details:
Guests were asked to mask up before Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi entered the room and took her position at the microphone. The groom proceeded to recite vows he’d written himself: “Faith in us has changed my world, captured my heart and tamed my soul. Your belief in me and in us has been the biggest gift of my life,” he said.
According to the Washington Examiner, Newsom, for his part, had previously not been seen in public for nearly two weeks prior to the event, and he’d just canceled a trip to Scotland for the global climate summit, citing “family obligations.”
But those obligations apparently didn’t stop him from getting in on the festivities.
A photo from the event appears to show the masked governor watching Gordon Getty kiss his veiled granddaughter.

Of course, it’s no surprise to see the likes of Newsom and Pelosi feeling right at home alongside the Bay Area’s elite. To say the speaker is more in line with the everyday American would be quite a stretch.
Besides politicians, the wedding was also reportedly attended by actors like Anya Taylor-Joy, who was Getty’s maid of honor, and musical artists including Earth Wind & Fire reportedly performed at the event, according to Vogue.

One of Vogue‘s editors said of the lavish event:
The whole wedding party looked amazing with the bridesmaids dressed like Vestals in cloudy grey gauze and bias satin, and the flower girls with butterfly wings.
“Ivy looked incredible in all those mirror shards that tinkled as she walked up the steps and the wedding veil embroidered with all those symbols that had so much resonance for her and represented the beloved people in her life,” contributing editor Hamish Bowles added.
