FLORIDA, United States (CMC) — The elder daughter of the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives John Boehner has tied the knot with her dread-locked, Jamaican-born construction worker boyfriend.

Lindsay Marie Boehner, 35, married Dominic Lakhan, 38, over the weekend in an intimate ceremony amid a lush Florida garden. She wore a flowing white strapless gown, showing off a huge tattoo etched across her arm, while Dominic wore a grey suit with his dreadlocks flowing down his back.

The Republican House Speaker reportedly looked on proudly after walking Lindsay down the aisle at Sundy House under tight security.

About 60 guests were invited to the wedding, including Boehner and his wife Debbie, and Lindsay's younger sister Tricia, 32.

Male guests reportedly sported Hawaiian shirts and slacks, while the women wore sun dresses and semi-formal gowns.

Dominic was arrested in 2006 for possessing marijuana, with the arresting officer reporting that Lakhan admitted to possessing it for "personal use".

Boehner is a strong opponent of legalising the drug.
