Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky hitched in Rhinebeck

A lovely day for a wedding, even if the town was expecting a few more famous faces

At 7:23 pm on Saturday, Bill and Hillary Clinton released an email stating: “Ms. Clinton was now married to Marc Mezvinsky. 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.” The town of Rhinebeck, N.Y., had been taken over with security, reporters and onlookers, but not as many bold names as expected—no Seinfeld, Oprah or Barbra Streisand, as expected. The teens in town were left to chase former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright for an autograph. And Ted Danson apologized for being the most recognizable face. The ceremony itself was interfaith, as Clinton is Methodist and Mezvinsky is Jewish. And the cake was gluten-free.
