The wedding of the year between former first daughter Chelsea Clinton and Mark Merzinsky is today. The world is waiting. The event is said to take place in Rhinebeck, New York, and paparazzi are not welcome.
The wedding is said to set daddy Clinton back some $3 million dollars. The wedding isÂ on the Hudson River front estate mansion, and two helicopter pads have been installed for the event to fly in high profile guests. Some guests will arrive by lowly transportation such as buses and stay at local inns.
The Friday night wedding rehearsal took place in a barn at Grasmere according to Radar Online.
The Guest list is said to include Oprah Winfrey, Barbra Streisand, and Tom Hanks. President Barack Obama will not attend. Chelsea Clinton is now 30 years old and is marrying her childhood sweetheart. Mezinsky is 32 and an investment banker for Goldman Sachs.
The New York wedding doesn't sound like the typical wedding even for so-called down home folks like the Clintons. Â Remember when Chelsea was an awkward teenager? Now she has grown into such a lovely young lady, and she's all grown up. What a lovely day she will have. Security will be tight.Â Â The town of Rhinebeck, New York is thrilled to hold this wedding.
