The wedding cost the couple about two million dollars. Especially for the celebration, a special greenhouse was built on the estate, where a festive cocktail was held.
Jennifer's parents, who officially divorced in August after 27 years of marriage, walked down the aisle. The bride's wedding dress, designed by the famous designer Vera Wang, was made to order. And the famous rock band Coldplay was responsible for the musical accompaniment that day.
Bill 65 and Melinda Gates, 57, who called their marriage “irrevocably ruined,” were first spotted together after their divorce. The former spouses were able to maintain good relations and continue to work together in their charitable foundation. What was the real reason for their separation, the couple did not say. However, the network actively speculated on the fact that the co-founder of Microsoft had several novels on the side. In addition, he was credited with friendship with the financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was accused of sex trafficking in minors. Melinda did not approve of their communication.
The engagement of Jennifer Gates and Nael Nassar became known in January 2020. Nael made a marriage proposal to his beloved during their winter vacation in the mountains, where they went skiing.
Before getting engaged, the lovers dated for several years. Both Jennifer and Nael are graduates of Stanford University, where they met. The couple also have a common hobby – they are fond of horse riding (Nassar is a professional rider).
