Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) has popped up at the social event of the year, attending the wedding of an oil heiress in San Francisco on Saturday after disappearing off the radar for more than eleven days, claiming unspecific “family obligations.”
The wedding of “long-time family friend and Getty oil heiress Ivy Love Getty” was officiated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, according to ABC 7 News. The Getty family are reportedly Newsom’s longtime friends, supporters and business partners.
Attendees of the “star-studded” lavish wedding were asked to leave their cellphones at the entrance. Vogue has exclusive rights to all the wedding photos taken during the event and put out an exclusive look into the wedding with nearly 100 photos covering the weekend. Newsom and his wife were reportedly spotted in two of those photos which were posted to social media by RedState’s Managing Editor Jennifer Van Laar.
“San Francisco’s City Hall is designed to inspire awe—a symbol of the city’s power and resilience after the devastating 1906 earthquake and fire, with its white marble detailing and soaring dome that looms more than 300 feet overhead,” Hamish Bowles, who is a Vogue contributing editor, wrote. “But despite the architectural magnificence—and the panoply of state, with Nancy Pelosi officiating and Governor Newsom and Mayor Breed in attendance—the ceremony managed to feel extraordinarily intimate and personal, with Tobias’s charming vows and his passionate kiss that dislodged Ivy’s crown!”
So, Twitter, is this @GavinNewsom? In the 1st pic, look to the right of the bride, to the couple in the 2nd row I think it is. Gavin and Jen, next to London Breed? In the 2nd pic, look behind the bride's dad. Bride is Ivy Getty. https://t.co/kUOcWI5NQA pic.twitter.com/tZu9HeeDJC

The bride is the great-granddaughter of J. Paul Getty and an heiress to the Getty oil fortune. She married Tobias Alexander Engel, who is a photographer, at City Hall.
“Guests were asked to mask up before Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi entered the room and took her position at the microphone,” Vogue reported. Guests were then taken to the Getty Mansion in order to celebrate the nuptials.
Newsom inexplicably dropped from public view after receiving his COVID booster shot on Oct. 27. He canceled his trip to the climate summit conference in Scotland and sent Lt. Gov. Eleni Kounalakis in his stead. When Newsom’s office was queried on his absence, reporters were told it was due to “family obligations.”

Newsom’s press secretary Daniel Lopez asserted that he worked at the state Capitol last week. He also stated that the governor would begin making normal appearances again sometime this week, according to a statement that was given to SFGATE.
Lopez was adamant that Newsom’s absence had nothing to do with the booster shot.
“Last week, Governor Newsom worked in the Capitol with staff on urgent issues including COVID-19 vaccines for kids, boosters, ports, the forthcoming state budget, and California’s continued economic recovery,” he remarked. “He will have public events this week related to the economy and vaccines.”
Deadline is reporting that Newsom plans to make a public appearance on Tuesday. Late Monday it was announced that the Democrat leader will “participate in a fireside chat at the 2021 California Economic Summit sponsored by California Forward.”
Adding fuel to the fire during Newsom’s absence, his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, sent out an emotional tweet and then deleted it, but not before screenshots were taken.
“It’s funny how certain folks can’t handle truth,” she angrily tweeted. “When someone cancels something, maybe they’re just in the office working; maybe in their free time they’re at home with their family, at their kids’ sports matches, or dining out with their wife. Please stop hating and get a life.”

She wasn’t the only one to get her fur ruffled over people questioning where the governor had got off to.
California state senators John Laird and Bob Hertzberg bristled when asked about Newsom canceling his appearance at the climate summit.
“Look, they said it was a family issue,” Hertzberg snapped, according to a reporter from Cal Matters. “There is no one in California who wanted to be at this conference more than Gavin Newsom. But we’re all human beings, man. I don’t think it’s appropriate to dig further into it.”
Laird bluntly claimed the controversy was “overblown.”
Many questions focused on Newsom's absence. @SenBobHertzberg:"Look, they said it was a family issue. There is no one in California who wanted to be at this conference more than Gavin Newsom. But we're all human beings, man. I don't think it's appropriate to dig further into it."

Social media was not impressed by Newsom’s apparent hypocrisy:
Dear Lord, and with @SpeakerPelosi as the officiant????
I could puke

Why didn’t they just say he’s going to a wedding but then he’s not making public appearances for 12 days … it’s still weird

Damn, must be nice being super rich and have no problem spending money on things that make no sense. 😆

Wow. This will not help. Blind to the current human condition.

No wonder Gavin wants us to think he has Guillan Barre:
he remembers how pissed we were when he ate at The French Laundry while we sat home and couldn’t even go to Del Taco.
This wedding makes The French Laundry look like In-N-Out.
