V.I. Delegate to Congress Donna Christian-Green married Christian "Olie" Christensen on New Year's Eve morning in a garden ceremony outside the groom's Judith's Fancy, St. Croix, home.
Her daughters, Rabiah L. Green, 23, and Karida Y. Green, 21, were the "bride givers," though her father, retired District Court Judge Almeric M. Christian, also was there with his wife, Shirley.
Christensen is a widower with four children. The bride and groom have known each other for many years; they started dating about a year ago.
The delegate said that in addition to her official duties, she will concentrate on being "the perfect wife."
And what is she to be called? "She's definitely going to be Donna Christensen," one friend said.
Among the invited guests: a slew of Canegatas; Vicki and Adam Christian (he's the delegate's brother); her sister, Rebecca Christian; Lo'an Sewer, the delegate's Washington spokeswoman, along with other staffers from her V.I. and D.C. offices; Monique Hodge, wife of the former lieutenant governor (Derek, her husband, is in Spain); Judi Nagelberg, a longtime friend; Keith and Vida Richards; Frank Schulterbrandt; Elena Shaubah; and Samuel Ebbesen, chief executive officer of the V.I. Telephone Corp.
