Facebook founder and billionaire CEO Mark Zuckerberg has tied the knot with his long time girlfriend Priscilla Chan. It has been an eventful month for the young CEO after raising $16 billion when he took Facebook public.
As would be expected Zuckerberg changed his Facebook status to ‘married’ this weekend after marrying Chan at a low key ceremony at his home in Palo Alto, California.
He posted a wedding picture with his bridge on his own Facebook page. More than 810,000 people had liked his wedding picture by Sunday afternoon and thousands of people sent congratulations messages.
Cary Dawson Tilds posted “Sweeter than the IPO. A lifetime of blessings to you.”
According to reports, 100 guests attended the surprise wedding. These people initially thought they were being invited to a party to celebrate Chan’s graduation from medical school. In true romantic fashion he designed her Ruby wedding ring himself and the guests dined on sushi from a Palo Alto restaurant.
28 year old Zuckerberg, met Chan at Harvard, where Zuckerberg founded Facebook in his dorm room in 2004 with three other classmates. He dropped out of Harvard to move to California so he could expand his growing business. The rest, as they say, is history.
Chan, 27 taught science to 4th and 5th grade pupils at The Harker School in 2007 and 2008, before going back to school to study medicine.
