While some people like to make their personal lives public, NBC News political correspondent Carol Lee prefers to keep hers private. The former president of the White House Correspondents’ Association married an army officer in a private ceremony to which only chosen and close people were invited. The news of her wedding comes from a source other than the reporter.

Carol Lee’s marriage to Major Ryan Harmon was a well-guarded secret.

Carol’s wedding received little attention, not on social media nor elsewhere. In June 2019, she married Major Ryan Harmon. Brianna Keilar, Elyse Labott, and Anne Schroeder were among the bridesmaids, according to Politico. Julie Mason officiated at the wedding as well.  Adelman, Margaret Talev, Jeff Mason, Kate and Brooke Brower, Erica Werner, Kristen Welker, and John Hughes, Dafna Linzer and Bart Gellman, Elena Nachmanoff, Nedra Pickler, Dana Milbank, and Anna Greenberg, Jerry Seib, and John Garcia were also on the guest list. The ceremony took place at the Hotel du Village in New Hope, Pennsylvania.
