The moment proud father John Boehner watched his daughter say 'I Do' to her dreadlocked Jamaican-born love
The daughter of House Speaker John Boehner has tied the knot with her Jamaican-born love in an intimate sunset ceremony set amid a lush Florida garden.
Lindsay Marie Boehner, 35, married construction worker Dominic Lakhan in a flowing white strapless gown that showed off a huge tattoo etched across her arm.
Her 38-year-old groom looked smart in a grey suit with his waist-length dreadlocks on display as he waited for Boehner to walk Lindsay down the aisle at Sundy House in Delray Beach on Friday.
The couple said their vows with the House Speaker looking proudly on - despite the fact Dominic had previously arrested for possessing marijuana.
Dominic was arrested in 2006 and this may not have gone down well with Boehner, a Republican who is a staunch opponent to legalizing the drug.
However, if there was any tension it was firmly pushed to one side as Boeher, who had donned an orange tie for the occasion, wore a grey suit to match his new son-in-law.
About 60 guests gathered at the wedding, including Lindsay's younger sister Tricia, 32, who married James Kinney in 2011.
Boehner and his wife Debbie were later seen joining their daughter for pictures at the venue which features pretty ponds.
The newlyweds had registered at Macy's for wedding gifts - but kept things low-key, with the most expensive gift being a Pistachio-coloured KitchenAid for $499.99 - and the cheapest, Kassatex Bath Towels, which were on sale for $7.99
Male guests sported Hawaiian shirts and slacks while the women were clad in sun dresses and semi-formal gowns.
According to Gossip Extra, the ceremony took place under heavy security as wedding guests were handed blue wristbands to separate them from diners at the hotel’s restaurant.
At least a dozen plainclothes cops were seen patrolling the hotel grounds.
A uniformed, shotgun-toting Palm Beach County Sheriff’s deputy stood by his squad car in the parking lot while Delray Beach cops were parked on the street.
The blinds at the restaurant were pulled down and diners who wanted to lift them up to watch the wedding were told they couldn’t.
The wedding guests, meanwhile, took place in the tiny banquet room about 8pm. and cheered wildly when John Boehner and his wife, Debbie, and the newlyweds walked in half an hour later.
Guests helped themselves to a buffet prepared by Sundy House Chef Lindsay Autry, a star of the Bravo show Top Chef‘s Season 9.
