Mark Zuckerberg Marries Longtime Girlfriend Priscilla Chan
Facebook went public Friday, and founder Mark Zuckerberg kept the tradition going on Saturday evening by sharing (via Facebook, of course) his super-secret wedding to longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan, which had taken place earlier that day. Mark, 28, met Priscilla, 27, at Harvard when they were undergrads.
So how did they pull off such a private event? In the same vein as Julia Roberts and Danny Moder as well as John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bessette, the couple invited family and friends Saturday under the guise of a different kind of party — in this case, the celebration of Priscilla’s recent graduation from medical school . Little did the guests know, they were actually an A-list wedding – minus the media!
The Facebook founder shared his new marital status with a life event post on his timeline simply stating “Married Priscilla Chan.”
