Chelsea Clinton Weds Marc Mezvinsky

Mazel Tov! After much anticipation, Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky officially got married over the weekend. The couple said their vows on Saturday, July 30 in front of 400 friends and family, including Bill and Hillary Clinton, in Rhinebeck, New York.

Chelsea wore a Vera Wang wedding dress, while the groom donned a Burberry suit and a yarmulke. The interfaith ceremony was conducted by Rabbi James Ponet and Reverend William Shillady. The wedding was void of any big celebrity attendees, though several political figures were at hand. The guest list included actor Ted Danson, former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and lawyer Vernon Jordan.

Immediately after the ceremony, Chelsea’s parents (the former U.S. President and current Secretary of State) released a statement to the public. It stated, "Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends. We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day."

The couple met each other at a conference in 1993. Both also attended Standford University. Mezvinsky went on to become an investment banker and currently works on Wall Street. The two did not officially started dating until 2005.
