Mark Zuckerberg married longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan on Saturday (May 19) and announced the blessed event on his Facebook page. "Mark added a life event to May 19, 2012 on his timeline: Married Priscilla Chan."

The announcement was accompanied by a photograph of the couple, with Mark in an actual suit (no hoodie here. Good job, fella) and with Priscilla in a beautiful white sleeveless wedding gown with veil.

Both have updated their status to "married" as well. A company spokesperson says the ceremony was a small affair at Zuck's Palo Alto home and Priscilla's ring was a simple ruby that Zuckerberg designed himself.

The two have been together for nearly 10 years, having met during Zuckerberg's sophomore year at Harvard University. Priscilla is a graduate of the University of California, San Francisco medical school.

Congratulations to Mark and Priscilla.
