Mark Zuckerberg weds long-time girlfriend one day after IPO

Mark Zuckerberg is now a married man. The Facebook founder and CEO wed his long-time girlfriend Priscilla Chan in a backyard ceremony in Palo Alto yesterday.

The couple have been together for nearly eight years after meeting at Harvard, where Zuckerberg first put what would become Facebook in motion.

The ceremony took place in front of 100 people in the back garden of the house the two share together.

Zuckerberg and Chan had reportedly been planning the wedding in secret for five months, with guests under the impression that they were there to celebrate Chan’s graduation from medical school.

According to AllThingD, the wedding was designed to coincide with the graduation and Zuckerberg’s birthday. That it happened at the same time as Facebook’s much-hyped IPO was pure coincidence as it was on a shifting deadline

The social network head of course chose to tell the world about the wedding in the form of a life event on his Facebook timeline.

The simple ruby ring was reportedly designed by Zuckerberg himself.

We think Zuckerberg missed out on one of the most badass status updates in history: “Turned 28, took my company public with a US$100-billion valuation, got married. What did you do this week?”

One thing’s for sure, the couple aren’t exactly going to battle to pay for their honeymoon.
