Chelsea Clinton & Marc Mezvinsky — Forget the Most Expensive Wedding — This Was the MOST ROMANTIC Wedding Of The Century

We’ve all blabbed about the $3 million cost of Chelsea’s nuptials, but what’s really striking about Chelsea Clinton’s wedding is how incredibly romantic and personal it was.

From the vows, which included a reading of the love poem of love poems — The Life That I Have, by Leo Marks, to the Jewish marriage certificate — the katuba – displayed under a beautiful chuppah created from tree branches and flowers, to the couple’s determination to keep the wedding highly personal — this wedding was a ROMANTIC affair!

Us outsiders may have been obsessing about which Hollywood A-Listers like Barbara Streisand or Oprah would attend, but as it turns out — Chelsea and Marc were really obsessing about expressing their love and commitment to each other.

That’s why they chose the poem The Life that I Have as a reading during their ceremony. Written by the English cryptographer, Leo Marks, on Christmas Eve1943, it was composed in memory of Mark’s girlfriend Ruth, who had just died in a plane crash in Canada, and it’s a heartfelt commitment to everlasting love and commitment.

Then there was the heartwarming speech that Marc delivered to his bride at the wedding dinner, in which he gazed intensely at Chelsea as he spoke eloquently about his love, according to the New York Daily News, for the women he has been romantically involved with for five years.

Did we ever suspect that Chelsea was a major romantic before we saw the photos of the 30-year-old wearing a spectacularly embellished strapless Vera Wang wedding gown with full princess skirt, tiara-like silver and rhinestone belt, a tied-bow back and a waist-length veil?

Nothing that we knew about her high-powered political powerhouse mom who wed in an off-the-rack peasant’s dress, would have prepared us for the young Clinton to be a romantic.

And let’s not forget that she could have been cynical about marriage and men after dad’s infamous Monica Lewinsky affair.

Instead, she chose to fall head over heels with a man who also has had to cope with a controversial dad — Edward Mezvinsky — who spent five years of an eigh- year sentence in prison for bank fraud, mail fraud and wire fraud, but who also comes from a warm family of 11 siblings, and for whom she has had to cross religions. She”s been seen attending Yom Kippour services and shabbat dinners with Marc. Chelsea has chosen love over cynicism, and has chosen to believe that love conquers all.

What would be more romantic than that!

I always wondered how much it would cost to pay someone to marry your monkey-faced daughter. Now, I learned that it’s somewhere around $3,000,000.00!

Can you imagine what an offspring would look like with these two monkey faces as parents? Well, look at what a filthy skank she has for a mother…

I’m happy for Chelsea but this must be a slow news cycle or the media has yet again misread public interest in this subject. No one I know has much interest in seeing the intense coverage her wedding garnered. Coupled with the fact that the young lady expressed the desire (as a private citizen) to keep the wedding a private event.

I hope she has a long and happy life and the public never has to be subjected to so many news stories about a private citizen who happened to be the daughter of the president. That includes the Bush daughters. I hope they have a happy private life out of the press.

The wedding looked lovely, but I agree that the public’s interest was entirely misread. *Yawn* As much as you press guys were trying to pass this off as the equivalent of a royal wedding it wasn’t even close. Just not that interesting. Hopefully the overcovered story dies.
