1990 : Governor-Elect Engler Marries Michelle DeMunbrun

December 8, 2021 all-day

On December 8, 1990, Michigan Gov.-elect John Engler married Texas attorney Michelle DeMunbrun in a ceremony attended by about 45 friends and relatives.

Saturday’s marriage is the second for Engler and his new wife.

“It was very beautiful,” said Engler as the two emerged from St. Matthew’s Roman Catholic Church.

Engler, 42, and DeMunbrun, 32, met earlier this year through one of Engler’s staff members and became engaged in August, but they kept their wedding plans secret until the day after Engler narrowly defeated incumbent Democrat Gov. James Blanchard on Nov. 6.

Governor Engler and Michelle would go on to have triplets, all girls.
