This time, the marriage rumors are real.Chelsea Clinton and her longtime beau, banker Marc Mezvinsky, are eyeing a summer wedding. “We didn’t get married this past summer despite the stories to the contrary, but we are looking toward next summer and hope you all will be there to celebrate with us,” they wrote in an e-mail on Friday.
The 29-year-old daughter of former president Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has known Mezvinsky since high school. Mezvinsky, 31, is a son of former Pennsylvania Rep. Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky and former Iowa Rep. Ed Mezvinsky, longtime friends of the Clintons. Ed Mezvinsky was released from prison last year after serving a nearly five-year sentence for wire and bank fraud. The couple lives in Manhattan. Mezvinsky is employed by G3 Capital, a Manhattan hedge fund, and Clinton is pursuing a graduate degree at Columbia University’s School of Public Health. It will be an interfaith marriage, as Mezvinsky is Jewish while Clinton grew up attending Methodist Church with her mother.
