Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former U.S. President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, married her longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky, a trader at hedge fund 3G Capital Management, on Saturday.
The nuptials took place at a sprawling estate in Rhinebeck, N.Y., about 100 miles north of New York City, where the newlyweds live. The Clintons took great pains to keep the ceremony and reception as secretive as possible, with only a handful of the roughly 500 guests known and most details hidden from the media.
“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 close friends,” Bill and Hillary Clinton said in a statement. “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.”
Mezvinsky is the son of two former members of the U.S. House of Representatives, Edward Merzvinsky and Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky. He worked at Goldman Sachs before joining 3G.
Chelsea herself, who is currently a graduate student, is no stranger to the hedge fund world, herself. Before resuming her studies, she worked at New York-based Avenue Capital Group.
