Mark Zuckerberg’s Wedding

We have talked a lot about the weddings and engagements of the British Royals and the Hollywood celebs. Let us know about the simple wedding of a common man who earned a big name, no less than a celebrity.

We are talking about none other than Mark Zuckerberg. He is an American computer programmer, internet entrepreneur and philanthropist; who is better known as one of the five co-founders of the social network website “Facebook”.  Currently working as the chairman and chief executive of Facebook, he became billionaire at very young age.


Despite of this name and popularity, he decided to marry Priscilla Chan whom he dated for 9 years in a very simple manner. In 2010 he had invited Chan to move into his rented Palo Alto home.  And, on 19th 2012 he married the girl in his backyard in a simple celebration which also marked Chan’s graduation from the medical school.

As the wedding was simple, so was his wedding ring to Chan. Out of so many available options in wedding bands for men, for women and matching wedding bands for the couple, he chose to design on his own ring. Unlike most of the others, his simple yet expensive wedding ring to Chan had ruby instead of a large diamond. Ruby jewelry represents passion and love. The lucky lady received this $25,000 ring when she walked down the aisle by Beast, the couple’s Hungarian sheepdog.
