Plenty of star nuptials have taken place, from all-red vow renewals to destination weddings in Anguilla and dreamy ceremonies in Italy.
The latest familiar face to say “I do” is political strategist and MSNBC host Symone Sanders. She wed Shawn Townsend, the former director of the mayor’s office of nightlife and culture in Washington D.C. on July 15.
The former chief spokeswoman for Vice President Kamala Harris met her soulmate in 2019 and their relationship culminated in a surprise ceremony at the Larz Anderson House in Dupont Circle. The celebration was touted as “A Toast to Townsend.” Cute right?
