There’s a reason why Mark Zuckerberg and his normally reticent girlfriend, Priscilla Chan are trending on Twitter today. It’s because of that very surprising update the Zuck posted on that other social networking phenomenon — Facebook. Mark married his partner of nine years, Priscilla, yesterday in a private wedding held in the backyard of his home in Palo Alto, California. And it isn’t just a surprise to the world. It was a surprise to the approximate 100 guests who attended as well. They thought they were coming for Priscilla’s med school (University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine) graduation party! Her wedding ring is rumored to have been designed by Zuckerberg himself, and is said to feature “a very simple ruby.” The photograph — love the gown and the veil — and the update are on his Facebook page. Of course they are. On another note, there’s something kind of old school about this picture, that we really like. Maybe it’s the dress? Maybe it’s the pose or the sunlight filtering in the background? It makes them look quite serene and happy.
This is going to be a very tough week to top for him. His 28th birthday was on Monday — May 14. He just got married. And let’s not forget the fact that he’s going to be rolling in billions thanks to the Facebook IPO. Major congratulations to the newlyweds. We expect more updates soon!
