Facebook Status: Married! Mark Zuckerberg ‘Likes’ Priscilla Chan and Weds

Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan, his sweetheart of 9 years tied the knot yesterday. The Facebook founder and CEO rounded out his gigantic IPO week with vows! Clearly, this was well planned out week for both as Chan, 27, also graduated from the University of California, San Francisco, medical school on Monday.

The couple, who met at Harvard at a fraternity party while waiting in line for the bathroom, tied the knot in a small ceremony at Zuckerberg’s house in Palo Alto, Calif in front of close friends and family members, who initially thought they were there to celebrate Chan’s graduation.

A company spokeswoman said the ring featuring “a very simple ruby” that Zuckerberg designed himself.

The ceremony was catered by a few of the couple’s favorite area restaurants, with desserts coming from L.A. Burdick Chocolate – which the couple is reported to have enjoyed on their very first date together.

Chan wore a traditional, sleeveless white wedding dress – no designer has been disclosed – and Zuckerberg wore a dark blue suit (instead of an all-black hoodie).

Facebook officially went public this past Friday, hitting a trading volume of approximately 580 million shares and a final valuation of just around $104 billion. Zuckerberg’s stake in the company is worth approximately $16.9 billion.

Even after the IPO, Zuckerberg remains Facebook’s single largest shareholder, with 503.6 million shares. And he controls the company with 56 percent of its voting stock.

The site, which was born in a dorm room eight years ago, has grown into a worldwide network of almost a billion people.

Zuckerberg founded Facebook at Harvard in 2004.

He was named as Time’s Person of the Year in 2010, at age 26.
