Though Friday's Facebook IPO kept the spotlight on company founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, Saturday belonged to Priscilla Chan—his new bride—and her stunning Claire Pettibone wedding dress. The elegant, ivory gown from the designer's Fall 2010 collection features a laser-cut floral overlay, sweetheart illusion neckline, matte sequins, and a chapel-length train. Unseen by Facebook followers, who first spotted the dress in a wedding photo posted to the couples' timelines, is the gown's gorgeous sheer back, which features the same delicate overlay as the rest of the dress.
Perfectly on-theme with Pettibone's nature-infused "Sky Between the Branches" gown, Zuckerberg and Chan exchanged vows in a small, backyard wedding for 100. The celebration was a surprise for guests. Close friends and family arrived at the couple's home under the impression they were attending a graduation party for Chan, who recently graduated from medical school, and a birthday party for Zuckerberg, who turned 28 on May 14. The couple of nine years had been secretly planning the wedding for months, according to People, though they only made their relationship "Facebook official" in March 2011.
