WEDDING: Mark Zuckerberg Marries Priscilla Chan [PHOTOS & VIDEO]

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has married his long-time girlfriend, Priscilla Chan.

The CEO and founder of Facebook has also changed his relationship status on Facebook from "in a relationship" to "married". Mark Zuckerberg changed the landscape of internet interaction forever after he created the famous social networking site, Facebook. Since then, he has been a highly followed figure and understandably his wedding news is making quite waves on the internet.

According to reports, Zuckerberg and Chan are a very private couple and their wedding was a very secret and private affair. They tied the knot on Saturday in a small ceremony that took place in the backyard of Zuckerberg's Palo Alto, Calif., home. The wedding was not very elaborate as one would have expected from a billionaire.

It was a very busy week for both Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan, but they both still decided to get married by the end of it. On Friday, Mark Zuckerberg took his company public in one of the most anticipated stock offerings in Wall Street's history and ended up making billions for the company. Priscilla Chan, on the other hand, just graduated from medical school at the University California, San Francisco, on Monday. On that same day, Zuckerberg turned 28 and the couple celebrated his birthday.

According to the details provided by a friend of the couple, Mark Zuckerberg designed Priscilla's ring himself and it had "a very simple ruby." The same person also gave details of the wedding and said that the ceremony took place in Zuckerberg's backyard, where only a 100 people were invited. All of the guests there thought that they had come to celebrate Chan's graduation party.

Priscilla Chan was wearing a white gown with net detailing and carried a small bouquet of flowers. Zuckerberg, on the other hand, looked crisp in his black suite.

After the ceremony, guests were taken for a family style dinner at the couple's favorite Palo Alto restaurants, Palo Alto Sol and Fuki Sushi, where the guests were served L.A. Burdick chocolate "mice" for desert, which the couple had on their first date.

Since Mark Zuckerberg's wedding was announced, thousands of people have checked out his Facebook profile to see his wedding picture.
