The Governator's wedding

Barack and Michelle Obama recently celebrated their anniversary, so I thought we'd take a look at the wedding of another current politician. Here in California, our governor is Arnold Schwarzenegger former body builder and actor. He married the daughter of a Kennedy, Maria Shriver. The two were introduced in 1977 by Tom Brokaw.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver were married April 26, 1986 in Hyannis, MA at a Catholic church.

Oh 1986. They both look great, she just looks really, really eighties.

I love this candid moment - they both look so proud and happy. Honestly she looks so fabulous here with some meat on her bones. She is very thin now. Having seen photos of her mom, I think it must be in her genes, but she really looks gorgeous with some weight on her.

At the reception they served Austrian and Cape Cod dishes ranging from Wienerschnitzel to lobster. Okay, seriously hot dogs and lobster?! Add some champagne and that is my type of party (no, I'm not kidding)

Maria wore a Christian Dior gown with an 11 foot train. Only 11 feet? Here you can see it engulfing her closest family and friends. This picture is so funny. It's interesting that she dressed all of her bridesmaids in different colors - I've never seen that before.

The couple had a 400 pound wedding cake that was an exact replica of the cake made for the bride's parents. Here is the original, along with her parents Sargent and Eunice Shriver:

Wow, that's some cake! I guess royalty and political royalty really like to have towering cakes!

Maria and Arnold are still married, of course, and they have four children together. She is a Democrat and he is a Republican, but they've been together so long I'm sure there is some secret to their happiness.
