U.S. Rep. Madison Cawthorn married Cristina Bayardelle on Saturday afternoon in a ceremony attended by friends and family.

 

“On April 3rd of 2014 my life changed forever," Cawthorn said in a statement issued Sunday. "A tragic car accident put me in a wheelchair and dashed my hopes and dreams for the future. On April 3rd of 2021 my life has once again changed forever. Marrying Cristina Bayardelle, now Cristina Cawthorn, is the greatest honor, privilege, and adventure of my life. I am so grateful to celebrate this occasion surrounded by so many friends and family.

"I ran for Congress because Cristina and I didn’t want to raise a family in the America many on the left seek to create. I am supremely confident that with Cristina by my side, we can push our nation forwards, towards a better future for our children and their children.”
