Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and longtime beau Marc Mezvinsky were wed Saturday “in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts,” a 50-acre estate in Rhinebeck, New York, according to a joint statement issued by her parents, former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
“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 for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day.”
The confirmation by the Clintons put to rest a slew of speculation on where and when the nuptials would take place.
“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,” the statement said.
The interfaith ceremony — Clinton is Methodist and Mezvinsky is Jewish — was led by Rabbi James Ponet and the Rev. William Shillady, the family said.
The bride — as predicted — wore a dress designed by Vera Wang, according to the family. Clinton had been spotted by Women’s Wear Daily outside the designer’s showroom in New York earlier this week, and Wang herself was spotted in Rhinebeck on Saturday.
