Rhinebeck can get back to normal. Chelsea Clinton wed longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky under extraordinary security at an elegant Hudson River estate tonight. (Still no actual wedding photos, though. To see others, click here.) Hundreds of guests gathered near the end of a near-perfect summer day of warm temperatures, blue skies, and cottony clouds. The ceremony was conducted by a rabbi and a reverend as Chelsea is Methodist and Mezvinsky is Jewish. The couple read a poem by Leo Marks titled, "The Life That I Have," according to the family.

"Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends," said Bill and Hillary Clinton in a statement. "We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day." (More Chelsea Clinton stories.)
