Summary: Setting up the series.

AUTHOR'S NOTE: For the purposes of this story/series, President Bartlet was not
re-elected. The President from 2002-2006 is a Republican, so our favourite band
of Democrats, as you'll see, do not work in the White House.
This is also the same AU as the Jukebox Series. ~Cara

Wedding in the White House
Post Staff Writer

Claudia Jean Cregg and Samuel Seaborn, the White House Press Secretary and
Deputy Communications Director, were married today in the East Room of the White
House in one of President Bartlet's last scheduled functions before the
inauguration of Republican President-elect Joseph Stewart on January 20.
Originally the wedding had been planned for St. Matthew's Catholic Church on
18th St., but scheduling conflicts prompted the move. President Bartlet
graciously allowed the room to be used.
The bride wore a long, full gown designed by Donna Karan. The groom, the
fathers of the bride and groom, and the best man wore tuxedos by Armani, and the
maid of honor was in a thin, royal purple by Vera Wang. The mother of the bride
was also in Vera Wang, while the mother of the groom wore Versace.
Two hundred guests turned out for the ceremony, including many ambassadors.
Flora Devlin, the Irish ambassador to the United States and a personal friend of
the groom, did a reading during the service from the Irish book Cť He Mise
"We're thrilled," Devlin said after toasting her friends. "Sam and C.J. are so
happy together and I wish them all the best."
Eleanor Cregg, mother of the bride and Assistant to the President for
Legislative Affairs, was also very happy.
"I couldn't ask for a sweeter son-in-law," she said. "Sam is joyfully welcome to
our family."
The honeymoon will be two weeks in Barbados.
