We don't normally cover current events, but I can't help but be all tickled by the news trickling out from Mark Zuckerberg & Priscilla Chan's totally nontraditional wedding yesterday. A few distinctly offbeat details:

It's always an unexpected treat to see folks who could afford to get married on the moon opt for simple, down-home ceremonies. (But don't get me wrong: I love moon marriages!)

Comments on Mark Zuckerberg’s totally offbeat wedding

  1. 7 million house in Palo Alto is much more modest then other parts of the country. Good for them. That one way to avoid the media circus and have the day be about friends and family. You know if they did the traditional wedding it would be all over the news and they would have media all over the place.

    • Odd! When I stumbled across this photo online yesterday, it was credited to the AP.

  2. You love moon marriages…and Moon marriages (as in Jen Moon – yes, I read the book!) 😀

  3. Aw, I think their wedding is sweet. I really hope they will stay together forever. That looks a lot like the dress I want to get married in. I want it to be sleeveless and go up to my neck without cleavage. Also love that veil. Aw chocolate mice ! So cute ! I wish them both well.

  4. So awesome! They should go big for their 5th anniversary. Like kidnap their guests and take them to Hawaii or something.

  5. I told my boyfriend about “the facebook guy” getting married in his backyard, his response “his backyard is probably worth half a mil.” Good point.

    The chocolate mice are adorable and I love her dress!


    …Inquiring minds, and all that.

  7. Love it!

    Now off to google the Ruby engagement ring. I’m getting my sapphire e-ring in a couple weeks and am glad I have another example of colored stone engagement ring for the naysayer traditional types 🙂

    ETA: googled it. It’s actually quite a lot like mine! Just switch out red for blue!

  8. Agreed! I’m not the biggest fan of Zuckerberg or Facebook, but I was cheering them for doing something apparently true to themselves rather than going the attention-whoring celebrity wedding route.
