But she wants you to join in the celebration – follow the wedding live by using #TulsiAbeWedding on your preferred social media platform! We hope you bless the couple with your warmest blessings.”
Gabbard, 33, and fiancé Williams, 26, a cinematographer, met on the campaign trail. Gabbard told People magazine that Williams volunteered to help out on the shoots for her campaign commercials. “It wasn’t until about a year after I was in office that he asked me out for the first time. It was a connection that was immediate and natural, but we didn’t really see it before that point,” she said.
