Chelsea Clinton, who Americans first got to know nearly two decades ago as the young daughter of President Bill Clinton, is now a married woman.
The lucky man is longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky.
Wearing a dress by Vera Wang (a family friend who was present), the former First Daughter, 30, wed the investment banker, 32, in Rhinebeck, N.Y.
An interfaith ceremony for Chelsea, who is Methodist, and Marc, who is Jewish, was conducted by Rabbi James Ponet and the Rev. William Shillady.
Saturday’s wedding was attended by 400 friends and family members, most notably Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton (wearing Oscar de la Renta).
The former President and current Secretary of State 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 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 guest list did not include Oprah Winfrey or President Obama, who joked on The View about his snub, but did feature Ted Danson, Mary Steenburgen, Madeleine Albright, and a handful of congressmen and other prominent Democrats.
Rhinebeck, a beautiful, small town in upstate N.Y., was swarmed all week by paparazzi and national media trying to catch a glimpse of the festivities.
Everybody understandably wanted to see how the teenager who grew up in the White House blossomed into a blushing bride – and with good reason.
Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky live in New York City and have dated since 2005, although they have been friends since they were teenagers.
They seem so happy together, as are we for them. Congratulations to the couple! Click to enlarge more Chelsea Clinton wedding photos below!
