Joe Kennedy III, Lauren Birchfield wed in California

BOSTON (AP) — Congressman-elect Joe Kennedy III has tied the knot.

A spokeswoman says Kennedy and Lauren Anne Birchfield were married on Saturday at the Community Church in Corona del Mar, Calif., in a ceremony officiated by the bride’s father, the Rev. Jim Birchfield.

The marriage comes less than a month after the 32-year-old Kennedy, making his first run for political office, defeated Republican Sean Bielat in the state’s 4th Congressional district. He’ll take over the seat of the retiring Democratic Rep. Barney Frank in January.

Kennedy and Birchfield, a fellow Harvard Law School graduate from Houston, announced their engagement in January.

Kennedy is the son of former U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy II and grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy.
