    Michelle Rhee

    The groom doesn't know who designed the wedding gown but he thinks the name is on his BlackBerry. A modern man! 

    Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson looked it up as he announced he and D.C. Schools Chancellor Michelle Rhee will be getting hitched over Labor Day weekend.

    The two announced their engagement last year. Rhee has been reforming the city's school system for the past  two years, often catching a lot of flack for it. Johnson was an NBA star with the Phoneix Suns before becoming mayor of California's capital city.

    The two survived a coast-to-coast long-distance relationship. This will be Johnson's first marriage and Rhee's second.

    And the name of the designer of the wedding gown -- Monique Lhuillier -- wasn't on the BlackBerry after all, but thankfully, Johnson has a good staff.
