Bill and Melinda Gates’ eldest daughter Jennifer Gates tied the knot with Nayel Nassar at her home in Westchester, New York. Nayel Nassar is an Egyptian equestrian.
For her wedding, Jennifer Gates wore a custom Vera Wang full-sleeved gown with a long veil and intricate embroidery. Jennifer wore minimal accessories with her gown and a pair of Aquazzura heels. The groom, Nayel Nassar, wore a black tuxedo with a white shirt and a bowtie.
“It’s impossible to put into words how happy it makes me to see you filled with joy on your wedding day. I’m so proud of you both for everything you’ve accomplished in your lives so far and everything you will do with your future together,” Bill Gates wrote on Instagram in a message to his daughter and new son-in-law.
Melinda Gates also shared a message: “What a joy to celebrate the light and love of @jenniferkgates and @nayelnassar this past weekend. So grateful we were able to find a way to safely gather for this special day.”
The bride kept her post short and sweet. “My universe,” she wrote alongside a photo from the day and the date of their nuptials, Oct. 16, 2021.
Bill Gates and Melinda Gates officially divorced in August this year following 27 years of marriage.
After the divorce announcement in May, there was intense focus on the future of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The only other trustee aside from the couple, Warren Buffett also stepped down from the board in June.
Melinda Gates might exit her role in two years if she and Bill Gates cannot work together, reports said.
