Rockford Register Star: Congressman Kinzinger weds in ceremony at Guatemalan monastery

Congressman Adam Kinzinger married Sofia Boza-Holman over Valentine’s Day weekend surrounded by close friends in the courtyard of an 18th century monastery in Guatemala.

The 41-year-old Republican congressman from Channahon shared news of his wedding on social media on Sunday. On Tuesday, his office confirmed the wedding took place Saturday at the Convento des las Capuchinas in Antigua, Guatemala. The ceremony was officiated by the Rev. Nate Ferguson, lead pastor of the Village Christian Church of Channahon.

“It’s official: I am one very lucky man to now have such an incredible woman as my wife,” Kinzinger said in a news release. “Sofia and I feel incredibly blessed to have the love and support of so many over this past week, and we know God was at the center of it all.”

Kinzinger and Boza-Holman got engaged last summer. She was the director of strategic media for Vice President Mike Pence at the time and now is a press secretary for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Kinzinger, a lieutenant colonel and pilot in the Air National Guard, was elected to Congress in 2010. He represents the 16th District, which includes parts of DeKalb, Ford, Stark, Will and Winnebago counties, including a portion of Rockford. His district also includes all of Boone, Bureau, Grundy, Iroquois, LaSalle, Lee, Livingston, Ogle and Putnam counties.

“To my constituents, neighbors, family, and friends, I want to thank you all for your well wishes and congratulations — and most importantly, your support for us during this exciting time,” Kinzinger said. “It’s an honor and a privilege to serve in Congress, and I’m immensely proud to share this announcement with my community.”
