In April, we reported the shocking engagement of Republican leader/House Speaker John Boehner’s daughter to Jamaican-born, weed smokin’ Dominic Lakhan. Now everyone knows that John Boehner is adamantly against the legalization of marijuana. He’s been on record using the words ’unalterably opposed’ to legalizing it, even for medical purposes.
But Lakhan, who has been arrested for “open ‘Natural Light’ beer and 4 grams of marijuana in the vehicle along with the smell of ‘burning cannabis’” on two separate occasions, is now the newest member of the Boehner clan. On Friday, May 10, Lindsay Boehner, 35, married her Jamaican-born beau in a quiet, elegant tropical garden setting at Sundy House in Delray Beach. Boehner strolled his daughter down the aisle and gave her away sporting a grey suit that matched the groom’s, according to the Daily Mail.
As you can imagine, the nuptials were super private and only 60 guests were in attendance under heavy security. No reporters were allowed and the reception was a buffet-style meal. It’s possible daddy Boehner didn’t pay for the event, but we don’t know. But one waitress that reporters managed to interview was surprised at the less than luxurious affair saying:
“You’d think that they’d splurge on a five-course, sit-down meal! I thought they’d all be much richer!”
The nights festivities appeared to be quite tasteful though and beautifully placed in the center of the beautiful tropical garden. During the reception, one might think that the Lakhan family, including the groom’s sister Delicia, would’ve broke out their best twerk, but none of his family members were spotted on the dance floor. Interesting. But Boehner asked Dominic if he could dance with his daughter and a three-piece band played The Turtles‘ So Happy Together.
Paparazzi must’ve taken the advice of one political colleague that congratulated Boehner on his daughter’s wedding. David Schnittger, Deputy Chief of Staff, Office of the Speaker, U.S. House of Representatives, tweeted:
“Paparazzi rent-a-chopper over Boehner family wedding tonight. Hope you got some good pics. Congrats Lindsay and Dom.”
