Omarosa Manigault, a senior staff member of President Donald Trump‘s administration and a former Apprentice cast member, got married in Trump’s Washington DC hotel this morning.
The 43-year-old ex-reality star tied the knot with Pastor John Allen Newman, 61, at the Old Post Pavilion in Trump Hotel, a stone’s throw from the White House.
About 70 people attended the wedding in the hotel’s Presidential Ballroom, which was followed by a brunch and reception.
Donald Trump and other White House senior staff remained at his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida following Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit and after the US airstrike on Syria,.

There was a brief scare when one of the bridesmaids nearly fainted at the end of the service.
Another guest brought the woman a glass of water and she recovered.
After the ceremony, the guests gathered for a brief cocktail reception in the hotel’s ornate art-deco lobby under a 200-foot-high glass ceiling.
Attendees included Lynne Patton, a former Trump SVP and now adviser to Ben Carson the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.
Also there were Niecy Nash of Reno 911! fame and Katrina Pierson, a spokesperson for the Trump campaign.
The newlyweds walked into the lobby arm-in-arm, with Omarosa waving a bouquet of pink and white roses.
Her husband wore a tan suit with a pink tie and a white flower in his lapel. Omarosa’s mother, Theresa Manigault, looked stunning at nearly 70 years old in an off-white sequined dress with a plunging neckline.
