In our recent roundup of couples who met at the annual White House Correspondents’ Dinner, we missed one A-listy pair whose romance began at the schmoozy event.

At a recent dinner, Sam Kass, White House senior policy adviser for nutrition policy and the executive director of FLOTUS’s “Let’s Move!” campaign, scored an introduction to his now-fiancee, MSNBC anchor Alex Wagner. And in of-course-because-it’s-Washington style, journo/author/pundit Richard Wolffe was the one who brokered the connection.

Per the Vogue magazine profile of Kass and Wagner:

It was Wolffe, also an MSNBC commentator, who introduced Kass to Wagner. After spotting Wagner at White House events, Kass pestered his friend to take him to the MSNBC after-party following the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. Wolffe says he told Kass that he was aiming way over his head. “ ‘Forget it. Never going to happen,’ I kept telling him.”
