The Knot is Tied and the Clintons emailed the news

With “great pride and overwhelming emotion,” Bill and Hillary Clinton announced that Chelsea and Marc Mezvinsky were officially wed.

"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,” Bill and Hillary Clinton said Saturday night in a joint 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."

Fireworks were expected to herald the ceremony—so far, the only other outward sign that the coupling had been accomplished (that is, until much later tonight, when Chelsea’s famous and powerful parents release a few precious details, and the waiting media mob descends on some 400 guests returning to town from the exclusive celebration at Astor Courts, a gated estate in the woods, protected by Secret Service, private security and the local cops).
