The big day for Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky came and went, and we're sifting through the most important details, like who wore what (Vera Wang! Burberry!), which famous people were there (Ted Danson!), and more. Wedding mania continues!
So who was at the wedding in beautiful Rhinebeck, NY? There are conflicting reports, but People says some of the biggest names rumored to be attending — Oprah, Barbra Streisand, Steven Spielberg — did not go. Ted Danson and wife Mary Steenburgen did attend, as did former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright and shady mogul Steve Bing, according to US.
The interfaith ceremony was performed by Rabbi James Ponet and Rev. William Shillady. Chelsea wore a Vera Wang gown, and Marc a Burberry tux, while Hillary wore a gown by Oscar de la Renta. And according to the Times, the rehearsal dinner was catered by New York's Blue Ribbon Restaurants (nice choice!), while the reception dinner was done by St. Regis Hotel. The gluten-free wedding cake was made by La Tulipe Desserts — how very forward thinking of them.
The Daily News has some good details, too. Marc got a hot shave the morning of the wedding to get rid of "several days of stubble." Good thinking! The owner of Iconic Hair, which performed the Most Important Shave of Our Time, told the paper Marc didn't seem to have any wedding day jitters, and that "he seemed chill."
And, finally, a poem by Leo Marks was read, called "The Life That I Have"
The life that I have
Is all that I have
And the life that I have
The love that I have
Of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.
A sleep I shall have
A rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years
In the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.
Awwww. Mazel tov!
