In the same week his multi-billion company's financial goes public, Zuckerberg celebrated Priscilla Chan's graduation from medical school and their wedding.
This is officially a big week for Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Just a day after the historic Facebook IPO, the 28-year-old updated his status from "in relationship" to "married".
Zuckerberg tied the knot to girlfriend of nine years Priscilla Chan whom he met in Harvard. An intimate wedding held at his Palo Alto, Calif., home on Saturday, May 19 was initially thought to be a graduation party for Chan who earned her degree from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, on Monday.
Around 100 family members and friends, including Facebook's chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg, attended the nuptials without knowing that it would be a wedding. "Everybody was shocked," a guest told The AP. They were served family-style food, one of them coming from the couple's favorite Palo Alto sushi restaurant.
Zuckerberg wore a dark blue suit, white shirt and tie to the ceremony while Chan wore a simple white wedding dress with veil and lace. A Facebook spokeswoman said Zuckerberg presented Chan with a ring he designed himself, "a very simple ruby."
