Chelsea Clinton has said “I do!”
She wed longtime boyfriend, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, Saturday in a lavish ceremony at the posh, 13,000-square-foot Astor family palace in Rhinebeck, N.Y.
In a statement, the Clinton family said: “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.”
Details from the ceremony are being kept secret, but UsMagazine.com has some details.
Around 400-500 people attended. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, former Clinton adviser Vernon Jordan, entrepreneur Steve Bing and actor Ted Danson and wife Mary Steenburgen were all expected. President Barack Obama and his family were not invited.
The bride, 30, wore Vera Wang.
According to The New York Times, the interfaith ceremony was conducted by Rabbi James Ponet and Reverend William Shillady. (Chelsea is Methodist; Marc, 32, is Jewish.)
The Times reports that the ceremony honored elements of both traditions; family and friends read the Seven Blessings (which are typically recited at traditional Jewish weddings) following the vows and exchange of rings.
