Omarosa Manigault is married! The reality star turned White House staffer wed Pastor John Allen Newman on Saturday, April 8, at Trump International Hotel in Washington D.C.

“Just married! #HappilyEverNewman,” the bride, 43, wrote on Twitter, alongside an image of the newlyweds.

The Apprentice alum wore a pink, embroidered gown and matching veil, which she purchased from Kleinfeld Bridal in NYC while appearing on TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress.

The bride and groom opted for a massive, ivory and gold wedding cake from Washington D.C. bakery, Couture Cakes by Sabrina. The seven tiers were embellished with diamond-like jewels, and pink and ivory flowers.

The couple dated for less than a year before getting engaged last July. At the time, Manigault was concerned about finding a reception space big enough to hold both of their church families.

“It’s not just a marriage of two people, but it’s a marriage of two congregations,” she told People. “His church can hold 3,000 people and mine can hold 500, so we are trying to find a reception venue that can accommodate everyone.”

It seems that the duo found the perfect venue. The hotel’s website dubs the Presidential Ballroom as the “largest luxury ballroom in all of Washington, D.C.”

This is the second marriage for Manigault, who was married to Aaron Stallworth from 2000-2005. She was engaged to actor Michael Clarke Duncan when he died unexpectedly in 2012.
