Saturday saw one of the biggest US weddings of the year. The marriage of Chelsea Clinton to Marc Mezvinsky.

The wedding, which took place at Astor Courts in New York was followed by a reception held in a marque at the same venue with food supplied by the St. Regis Hotel in New York, which consisted of short ribs, Atlantic char, a vegetarian option, and gluten-free rolls. Chelsea also opted for a gluten-free cake from La Tulipe to suit her allergies.

The bride is said to have worn a Vera Wang frock, before changing into something slinkier by the designer for her first dance to the tune of “At Last”.

According to sources, there were “dozens of bridesmaids” and guests needed special ID bracelets to board a bus to get to the venue, but at least they had a good time. The party was said to have continued until 4:30am.

However, Chelsea isn’t the only one to have tied the knot on Saturday as Alicia Keys also opted to tie the knot too. The singer (and mother-to-be) also walked down the aisle in a Grecian inspired Vera Wang dress, complete with flat sparkling shoes and a jewelled band for her Mediterranean wedding to Swizz Beatz, which took place by a pool overlooking the beach.

Unfortunately we’re not yet able to get pictures of either wedding, but as soon as we have some we’ll keep you updated. In the meantime, click here for the leaked images of Alicia’s wedding frock.
