Chelsea Clinton Wedding Picture
One of the nation’s favorite former First Daughters is now a missus.
Chelsea Clinton’s longtime beau officially “Put a Ring on It” in a Saturday afternoon ceremony at the Astor Courts in Upstate New York. And pictures of the wedding are slowly making their way onto the Net.
Chelsea — the daughter of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — married Marc Mezvinsky in an interfaith ceremony (He’s Jewish. She’s Methodist.) at the estate built by John Jacob Astor on the Hudson River in scenic Rhinebeck, about two hours north of New York City.
According to The Associated Press, the bride wore a strapless white Vera Wang gown with a full skirt and silver beading around the waist and carried a bouquet of white flowers. The former president and the groom, investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, wore dark suits, while Mrs. Clinton wore a fuchsia dress.
NBC News correspondent Noah Oppenheium stood in as best man in a ceremony that boasted a guestlist of between 400-500 guests.
The interfaith ceremony was conducted by the Rev. William S. Shillady and Rabbi James Ponet.
“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,” the statement said. “On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck (N.Y.) for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day,” The Clintons said in a statement following Saturday’s ceremony.
