Last Friday may be the biggest day for Mark Zuckerberg’s company Facebook, but in terms of his personal life, Mark’s wedding to Priscilla Chan, her long-time girlfriend of over 9 years, maybe of most importance.
Mark, on Saturday, changed his Facebook relationship status to Married to Priscilla Chan. Guests thought they were attending a party to celebrate Priscilla’s graduation from medical school at University of California. I can only imagine how shocked they all were when they found out they were to witness the wedding of Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan.
I’ve always admired how well-known celebrities like Zuck (yeah, we’re on a nickname basis, y’know) can keep major moments in their lives, such as this wedding, from the public’s eye.
Okay, okay. There might be some news sites who already have prior knowledge of this and were prepared for their all-exclusive feature before the whole web goes gaga over the news. There’s NY Daily News, whose article I read first about the wedding of Mark and Priscilla. Anyway, I still smile at the thought that they can keep things like this private, just like Beyonce Knowles and Jay-Z. 🙂
I’m happy for the couple. I don’t think Priscilla will be asking for a bigger wedding ceremony following this. I think the very simple celebration at Zuckerberg’s home in Palo Alto, California is VERY romantic. 🙂
(I wonder if he has huge bean bags there for when he’s working at home. I bet his house will get a more lady’s touch to it.)
