Rep. Don Young -- Alaska Republican, former tugboat captain, collector of walrus penis bones and hopeless romantic -- celebrated his 82nd birthday Tuesday, as well as love.  

The congressman and sweetheart Anne Garland Walton tied the knot at a private ceremony in the Capitol chapel. According to Young's office, House Chaplain Patrick J. Conroy officiated. "As I celebrate my 82nd birthday, Anne has given me the best gift anyone could as for -- her hand in marriage," Young said in a statement.
