There was wedding fever in Rhinebeck, New York yesterday as the highly anticipated Clinton/Mezvinsky wedding took place at the stately neo-classical building and estate, Astor Courts. Located on the banks of the Hudson River, the venue itself is absolutely breathtaking.
Chelsea had asked that her wedding be kept private but already, only a day after the wedding, there are already tons of photos that have been shared.
Chelsea is Methodist and Marc is Jewish so rather than either of them converting their religions and beliefs, they shared an interfaith wedding ceremony which was conducted by both a Reverend and a Rabbi. Blending elements from both cultural traditions is a beautiful way to truly make a wedding day unique in such a way that it speaks of who the couple are. It was commented that although the bride and groom are well known and bear celebrity status, the wedding was not about celebrity but was clearly about the bride and groom.
A few details about the wedding:
. Guest attendance: 400
. Bride: a strapless gown, beaded at the waist - designed by guest, Vera Wang
. Groom: a Burberry tuxedo - designed by Burberry’s creative director, Christopher Bailey
. Mother of the Bride: a fuschia coloured gown - designed by Oscar de la Renta
Warmest wishes to the newlyweds!
