Sen. Bob Casey, D-Pa., recently added a new line to his career summary: Marriage officiant.
John Rizzo, press secretary for Casey, and Tiffany Wynn, a lawyer at Crowell & Moring, were married on May 31 at the Park Hyatt in Washington, D.C. John is from Scranton, Pa., and started his career in Casey’s office as an intern. He also worked in the press office of Democratic New York Sen. Charles E. Schumer. Tiffany is from Connecticut and a graduate of Duke University and Georgetown Law.
“My staff and I never thought that John’s dedication to, some might say 'obsession with,' press coverage could be rivaled by anything other than sports … that is, until he met Tiffany,” Casey said in his remarks at the ceremony.
Rizzo proposed at the Lincoln Memorial and the D.C. theme continued throughout their wedding, with each table named after landmarks. Hors d'oeuvres included crab cakes, macaroni and cheese, and fried brie cheese. There were also sliders, french fries and an ice cream sundae bar that one wedding guest described as “magical.”
Staffers attending from the Casey and Schumer offices included Jim Brown, Kristen Gentile, Alex Miller, Jennifer McCloskey, April Mellody, Leon Fresco, Meredith Kelley, John Jones and Rebecca Kelly Slaughter.
No word yet on whether John was tasked with writing a post-event news release for the senator.
