Chelsea Clinton weds at exclusive New York estate
Yahoo & AP ^ | 7/31/10 | MICHAEL HILL

Posted on 07/31/2010 7:27:58 PM PDT by Dr. Scarpetta

RHINEBECK, N.Y. – Chelsea Clinton wed her longtime boyfriend under extraordinary security at an elegant Hudson River estate late Saturday.

Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham Clinton announced in a statement that their daughter wed investment banker Marc Mezvinsky after weeks of secrecy and buildup that had celebrity watchers flocking to the small village of Rhinebeck for the evening nuptials.

The site of the wedding, a Beaux Arts riverside estate called Astor Courts, was sealed off from the general public.

"Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends," the Clintons said.

"We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family.

On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day."

The ceremony was conducted by a rabbi and a reverend as Chelsea Clinton is Methodist and Mezvinsky is Jewish, and included a poem by Leo Marks titled, "The Life That I Have," according to the family.

Consistent with Chelsea Clinton's desire for privacy, the family had released no details of the wedding beyond the date.

But the scope of the event became apparent when more than a half-dozen busloads of wedding guests — men in black tie, women in dresses — were transported from a hotel in the village to the riverside ceremony as gawkers looked on.

Well good luck to them. I hope their marriage is filled with genuine happiness and is not a sham for the sake of convenience.

Twenty years ago the Clintons hadn't a pot to piss in.

What a happy coincidence that their choice of a career in public service, as noble as it was, ended up being so lucrative?

But sheesh, Marc, couldn’t you button up for the photo?

Amen to that.

Chelsea seems to be a nice young lady, she’s led her own productive life out of the public eye for the most part, and is entitled to as much happiness as anyone.

Chelsea looks lovely and happy. The dress would have been more elegant without the Michele belt though.

He’s *not* supposed to button it? Well, to me, it looks sloppy. Or maybe he just looks sloppy. I don’t know.
