Status Update: Mark Zuckerberg is married to Priscilla Chan
This is proving to be a big week for Mark Zuckerberg, first IPO launch and then Marriage. Yes Mark Zuckerberg is married now. Zuckerberg in a private ceremony married his long time girlfriend Priscilla Chan, at the backyard of his home in Palo Alto, California on Saturday (19th May 2012). The news of Priscilla and Mark came suddenly after the historic launch of Facebook IPO. The wedding ceremony was attended by less than 100 people. It is been said that guests were originally invited to celebrate the graduation of Ms Prisicilla Chan, but even they were surprised to find out that wedding is taking place.
Mark and Priscilla has been together with each other since 9 Years. Its very interestingly mentioned in the book by David Kirkpatrick “The Facebook Effect” that how Priscilla and Mark met at the Harvard University party while waiting in the line to use washroom. The couple has been dating since then and has been in an on and off relationship.
Zuckerberg was spotted wearing a Dark Blue Suit (thank God he did not wear his famous Hoodies for the occasion) while Priscilla wore a beautiful White Wedding Gown. Priscilla Chan is a Medical Graduate from University of California, San Francisco, and is Pediatrician. Mark updated his status as “I am so proud of you Dr. Chan” when Priscilla graduated.
Zuckerberg has stated earlier that wedding had to take place but they were waiting for Priscilla’s graduation. Mark designed the wedding ring himself for the wedding, which is said to be a Very Simple Ruby Ring.
In the end we wish Mark and Priscilla a very blissful married life and a lifetime of togetherness 🙂
