We “like” this! While Mark Zuckerberg was taking his company public on Friday, his then-bride-to-be, Priscilla Chan, was quietly putting the final touches on her wedding gown.

For her surprise Saturday nuptials, Chan wore designer Claire Pettibone’s “Sky Between the Branches” gown, an ivory laser-cut floral dress adorned with matte sequins lined in silk. The gown featured subtle cutouts in the overlay, plus an illusion jewel neckline, sheer back and chapel-length train. The dress retails for $4,700 and is available on Pettibone’s website.

“She wore it with such grace,” Pettibone tells PEOPLE of Chan. “Her gown seems to perfectly capture her personality — understated and elegant with a touch of sparkle. It’s a perfect blend of femininity and fashion.”

Pettibone, a Los Angeles-based designer, has also created wedding gowns for stars like Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss and American Idol‘s Tamyra Gray, and even designed a bridesmaid dress worn by Cameron Diaz.

Zuckerberg and Chan married in a small ceremony in their Palo Alto, Calif., backyard on Saturday. Guests thought they were coming over for a surprise party to celebrate Chan’s graduation from medical school, however, the couple had been planning the wedding for more than four months.

She has class definitely…I agree with the comments above. Someone with class usually does not select a strapless wedding gown. No offense to the women out there who have, but I think many of them who have selected strapless only did so because all their friends did. I’m sure some girls look very good in strapless wedding gowns, but most women don’t. Just not very flattering on a bride. Strapless wedding gowns are not classy and very unattractive on a bride. Too bad the sales associates selling the gowns aren’t more honest! Anyone with any class or education would never wear a strapless wedding gown or have their bridesmaids in strapless. I wish them happiness in their life together.

Happy for them! She could have benefitted from an honest consultant’s services; the shape of the dress only accentuates her lack of a shape. She is very boxy.

She looks absolutely lovely. Even ol’ Zuck found a good reason to put on a suit. Congratulations to them both.
