Gov. Charlie Crist became the first sitting Florida governor to wed in nearly 42 years, exchanging vows Friday evening with New York socialite Carole Rome in a 20 minute church ceremony.

Some attending the ceremony were former Florida Gov. Bob Martinez, former Olympic gymnast Shannon Miller, Tampa Bay Rays owner Stuart Sternberg, former U.S. Senator Connie Mack, Geraldo Rivera, Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Derrick Brooks and Democratic Congressman Robert Wexler of Fla.

“She’s a beautiful first lady. I couldn’t be more excited,” Crist said after the ceremony, in which Rome wore a floor-length classic silk gown by a Spanish designer purchased at upscale Wedding Atelier in Manhattan. “It’s a great night for Florida and it’s a great night for us.”

Governor Charlie Crist to Say “I do” Tonight

Florida Governor, Charlie Crist, will be married tonight in Saint Petersburg at the First Methodist Church.  The bride and Florida’s new first lady is  Manhattan socialite, Carole Rome.

Wedding plans have been pretty much top secret, but it is reported that some high profile media guys such as Sean Hannity, Joe Scarborough, and Wolf Blitzer are on the invitation list of about 200.


As for the courtship, Crist met Rome last fall in New York. At the time, she was still married, but divorcing the CEO of Bluestar Jets. Crist too had been married before. But that was nearly 30 years ago, and it lasted less than a year. He described himself as “gun-shy” about a second marriage — until he met Rome. “I was taken with her right away,” he told The Associated Press. “You know how it is when you fall in love. It’s pretty overwhelming — a very cool thing.”
