Ivanka Trump married her boyfriend of two and a half years, New York Observer owner Jared Kushner, on Sunday at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. "Ivanka wore the most beautiful dress by Vera Wang that was reminiscent of Grace Kelly," Barbara Walters, a guest at the ceremony, reported on The View this morning.
Ivanka, an executive VP in her father's organization, and Jared, whose father, Charles, is also a real estate developer, like Donald Trump, began dating in 2007 and got engaged last July. Ivanka spent 18 months converting to Judaism for Jared, and the wedding was an Orthodox ceremony, complete with invitations printed in both English and Aramaic. "I only had a three-month engagement so it was all done pretty quickly," Ivanka recently said at a launch party for her book, Trump Card. "To all those women planning a wedding, just be organized and decisive. It also helps if you have a wedding planner helping you out!" Wedding Planning 101
We assume it also helps when your dad owns the venue, but, you know, details. The Donald is on the record as approving of Jared, which had to be a relief to Ivanka. Seriously, imagine bringing your boyfriend home to that guy, with his hand gestures and magnificent branded vodka.
Other guests at the wedding included New York gubernatorial aspirant and famous rodent-face Rudy Giuliani; Baba Wawa and her date, The View executive producer Bill Geddie; and of course Ivanka's mother and stepmother, Donald's first and third wives. Sources said Ivana and Melania were cordial. Advice: Your Ex Husband, His New Wife, Your Kids
Aside from their respective fortunes, Ivanka and Jared already have a leg up on many newlywed couples. Ivanka told New York Magazine earlier this year that they make a great match because they understand each other's demanding work schedules, and neither expects the other to put career aside for family. A relationship based on mutual understanding and compromise? That'll never work!
