It’s official! Chelsea Clinton married Marc Mezvinsky on Saturday night in Rhinebeck, New York. The wedding took place at Astor Courts overlooking the Hudson River in front of 400 guests. The couple said their vows under a gazebo covered in yellow, white and green flowers.
A nine-piece string ensemble played as guests including Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen took their seats on the lawn. Also in attendance were Steve Bing and Chelsea’s wedding dress designer Vera Wang.
Shortly after the ceremony, President Clinton and Secretary Clinton released a statement:
“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.”
Clinton and Mezvinsky met as teenagers and later attended Stanford University together. They became engaged in November.
