As noted at US news sites that day, the Mark Zuckerberg-Priscilla Chan wedding was held at the backyard in Zuckerberg‘s home in Palo Alto, California, a day after Facebook made its initial public trading at Nasdaq that reached $42 per share.

Zuckerberg‘s wedding was in his backyard, before fewer than 100 guests, who thought they were there to celebrate Chan‘s graduation.” Huffington Post editor Ethan Klapper (@ethanklapper) tweeted about two hours ago, with Mark and Priscilla being together for over nine years.

Both Zuckerberg and Chan, who reportedly met in 2004 at Harvard University when Facebook is still starting, posted their wedding photo on their Facebook pages, and Mark can be seen wearing a suit jacket at the wedding rather than his usual hoodie, while Priscilla wore a simple wedding gown.

Zuckerberg, who turned 28 last Monday, May 14, was named Time’s Person of the Year in 2010, the year the public had a first glimpse of Chan, 27, graduated from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco.

Apparently, that was also the same year that the Facebook film “The Social Network” was released and made well in the box-office and earned eight Academy Awards nominations and won three of them including Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, and Best Film Editing.
