Darienne Page & London Rakestraw

September 7, 2013 in Fisher Island, Florida


In the Spring of 2008, Darienne was working at the Obama Campaign Headquarters when she stopped by one of her favorite departments, Ops-West.  One of the photos on the wall of new interns was London C. Rakestraw.  She was drawn to his smile and easy going demeanor.  He was attracted to her immediately, nicknaming her “Super Fine.”

After months of working together and hanging out at group events, London and Darienne went out dancing and stayed up talking until the sun came up.  Realizing that they were meant to be, they began dating just in time for the election of Barack Obama on November 4, 2008.

The couple now resides in the Penn Quarter area of Washington D.C., taking in shows and eating at every restaurant they can get into.  They love to travel and are known for picking up and moving in a moments notice.
