Chelsea Clinton’s Wedding

Presidential families are, in a sense, American royalty, and on July 31, 2010 former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton looked the part of a princess bride as she exchanged vows with the man she loves, Marc Mezvinsky.

Among the 400 guests gathered at Astor Courts in Rhinebeck, New York who stood in honor of the bride as she linked arms with her father and began her walk down the aisle were Ted Danson and Mary Steenbergen, Madeleine Albright and Vera Wang. The designer to the stars created wedding day wear for the bridesmaids as well as the dress upon which all eyes were fixed– a strapless silhouette cinched at the waist with an elaborately adorned belt which provided a dramatic foil for the refined draped tulle bodice which flowed into a silk organza skirt. Waiting for her at the end of the white aisle runner in an air-conditioned tent, the groom looked dapper in a tuxedo by Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey.

Following the interfaith I do’s, which were presided over by Rabbi James Ponet and Reverend William Shillady and included a reading of the Leo Marks poem “The Life I Have”, the newlyweds– whose friendship, which began in 1993, transformed into true love in 2005– joined family and friends for a reception where the bride and groom sampled slices of a vegan, gluten-free wedding cake.

Get a glimpse of the first official wedding photos in the following AP clip:
