Son of Sen. John McCain, Jack McCain, weds Renee Swift
The son of U.S. Senator John McCain, Jack McCain, has wed Renee Swift in San Francisco, according to various outlets.
The couple tied the knot on Saturday night during a ceremony at Grace Cathedral.
The bride wore a gown fit for a fairy tale with a tiered tulle ball gown skirt and a strapless bodice with a sweetheart neckline. The groom wore a striking military dress uniform.
The nuptials were followed by a reception at the California Academy of Sciences, which was attended by the entire McCain clan. Mitt Romney attended the rehearsal dinner on May 31 hosted at the Fairmont Hotel.
For the reception, Swift changed into a gorgeous white dress with Grecian draping and beaded cap sleeves, while her new husband selected a tuxedo with a white jacket.
Jack McCain, 27, and Swift, 29, met in Guam. Swift is a captain in the United States Air Force Reserve, while the younger McCain is a lieutenant and helicopter pilot in the Navy. Jack McCain is stationed in Guam.
Meghan McCain, the sister to the groom, live tweeted the joyous occasion, while the Senator shared images of the event on Instagram. But, as fun as watching his son marry must have been, Senator McCain made time for business during the weekend of festivities.
“On Sunday, the morning after the wedding, Sen. McCain gamely suited up for an appearance via satellite on CBS’s Face the Nation, where he questioned whether Attorney General Eric Holder is fit to continue in his job,” reports The Washington Post.
The newlywed couple plans to honeymoon in Africa, representatives for Senator McCain confirmed to People magazine.
