Mark Zuckerberg wedding

The couple dated nine years before tying the knot in front of less than 100 guests, and the bride wore a dress by designer Claire Pettibone! Get all the details from their intimate reception, (and her dress), right here!

While some couples would spare no expense on their special day, that wasn’t the case for Mark Zuckerberg and his longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan — even if he is a billionaire. The couple tied the knot over the weekend in the backyard of their Palo Alto home in a very intimiate ceremony — and while more than 1 million people have ‘liked’ Mark’s new ‘married’ status on Facebook, under 100 guests were present for the special day. In fact, those in attendance didn’t know about the wedding — guests thought they were attending a surprise party celebrating Priscilla’s graduation from medical school. Guess the surprise was on them!

The bride opted for a $4,700 gown by designer Claire Pettibone. The ivory ‘Sky Between the Branches’ frock features a floral sequin-overlay, sheer back and 3-4 foot train.

The couple spent four months planning their special day, where guests feasted on a family-style meal from the newlyweds’ fave restaurants: Palo Alto Sol and Fuki Sushi. Mark and Priscilla kept it super personal, opting for chocolate mice from Burdick Chocolate for dessert — the treat was what the two ate on their first date.

Were you surprised that the couple had such a low-key affair?

I honestly think she’s better looking than he is, especially when she gets all dolled up. Here, she looks kinda plain. But Mark is a scrawny flabby pasty little GINGER NERD.

The only reason a hot female model or celebrity would give him the time of day is because he’s rich.

But Priscilla loves him for who he is and he loves her for who she is. This is a REAL wedding not a phoney Hollywood wedding out of convenience.

your a sad human being. Firstly, she isnt an ugly asian and secondly he is a simple guy, they married in a way that made them comfortable, not to prove to the world that he has all that money and can spend it on whatever he wants. He isnt a Kardashian, doesnt need to prove he’s rich. Weddings are personal and should reflect the personality of the people entering marriage. Plus, thats his ‘ugly Asian’ that he’s in love with, maybe u should focus on your life

Surprise is important in the war. Mark looks like a commander leading millions into fight.
