New York, Aug 1 (ANI): Chelsea Clinton,
daughter of ex US President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary
Clinton, tied the knot with her long-term beau Marc Mezvinsky at a grand

The wedding took place in
Astor Courts, which had been declared a ‘no-fly’ zone with hundreds of
security personnel blocking all roads leading to the venue.

The 30-year-old bride wore
a gown designed by Vera Wang whereas mother of the bride wore Oscar de la

Rabbi James Ponet and the
Reverend William Shillady conducted the interfaith ceremony.

Clinton is Methodist, and
Mezvinsky is Jewish.

Their wedding, therefore, included elements from
both traditions: friends and family reading the Seven Blessings, which are
typically recited at traditional Jewish weddings following the vows and
exchange of rings.

“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 their close friends,” the
New York Times quoted the Clintons as saying 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.”

The couple also thanked
Rhinebeck for its welcome and good wishes.

A couple’s friend read the
poem “The Life That I Have” by Leo Marks.

Many of the guests were
friends of the bride and groom from college and work. (ANI)
