Mark Zuckerberg marries Priscilla Chan

Pictured: Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg on their wedding day yesterday

In the same weekend that his eight year old company IPO’d on Nasdaq Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg married Priscilla Chan.

Unlike the portrayal of Zuckerberg (28) in the Oscar winning movie The Social Network (the only thing they got right by the way was the wardrobe) the Facebook founder met Chan in their first year at Harvard and have been together ever since.

Chan (27) recently graduated from medical school.

About 100 friends and family who attended the ceremony weren’t aware of the marriage plans and thought they were attending a party yesterday to mark both Chan’s graduation and Facebook’s IPO.

Instead they arrived at Zuckerberg’s home in Palo Alto to witness a life event that would leave any multi-billion IPO in the shade.

Chan’s wedding ring is understood to be a simple ruby that Zuckerberg designed himself.
