They pressed their luck at roulette to decide if there’d be a second date (betting on red to match her hair, naturally), sealed the night with a romantic kiss outside, and the rest is history. | Canon in D-planed: After their ceremonial flight, the newlyweds were received by friends and family at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport, with a serendipitous appearance by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.
