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.
