Zuckerberg wed 27-year-old Priscilla Chan, his girlfriend of nearly a decade, according to a guest authorized to speak for the couple. The person spoke only on the condition of anonymity.
The couple married at his Palo Alto, Calif. home in front of fewer than 100 stunned guests who thought they would be attending a party to celebrate Chan's graduation from medical school. Zuckerberg gave his new bride a ring he had designed with a "very simple ruby" to end an incredibly eventful week, according to the guest.
Chan and Zuckerberg started planning the event four to five months ago, the spokesperson said.The couple met as undergraduates at Harvard University in 2004. While Zuckerberg famously dropped out of college to work on Facebook, Chan, a pediatrician, stayed to earn her undergraduate degree in 2007.
They also both changed their status to "married" on their Facebook pages.
Zuckerberg's sister, Arielle Zuckerberg, posted on her page: "Balls. Now I'm the only unmarried Zuckerberg...". She is now listed by Chan as a family member on the site.
