Chelsea Ties Knot With Long-time Boy Friend
Bill and Hillary Clinton’s daughter married her long-time boyfriend in the picturesque New York village of Rhinebeck on July 31 in what has been dubbed America’s royal wedding.
Chelsea Clinton — the only child of the former US president and the US secretary of state — wed Marc Mezvinsky at Astor Courts, an historic 50-acre (20-hectare) estate on the Hudson River, about 100 miles (160 km) north of New York City. Chelsea wore a strapless white gown with a fitted bodice and full skirt with platinum-colored beading at the waist and a long white veil. The groom wore a simple black tuxedo. Apart from the parents of the bride, the only other high profile guests seen in Rhinebeck have been Bill Clinton’s former secretary of state, Madeleine Albright, actors Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen and fashion designer Vera Wang. Chelsea Clinton, 30, and Mezvinsky, 32, have known each other since they were teenagers. He is an investment banker, whose parents Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky and Edward Mezvinsky were once Democratic U.S. House of Representatives members. Chelsea Clinton, who worked at a New York hedge fund and has more recently studied health policy at Columbia University, has kept a low profile since her father left the White House in January 2001, although she campaigned for her mother during her failed run for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.
