This is the week to end all weeks for Mark Zuckerberg, who married 27-year-old Priscilla Chan at a small ceremony at his Palo Alto, California, home today. It was no average week for his new wife, either: Chan graduated from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco, on Monday—which happened to be Zuckerberg's 28th birthday. The couple met at Harvard and have been together for more than nine years, notes the AP.

Zuckerberg designed the ring himself, according to a Facebook rep; it features "a very simple ruby." The ceremony took place in Zuckerberg's backyard before fewer than 100 guests, who all thought they were there to celebrate Chan's graduation. (More Mark Zuckerberg stories.)
