Last night, the stars came out in the sleepy town of Rhinebeck, New York, for one of the most anticipated weddings of the summer season. Chelsea Clinton, the 30-year-old daughter of former President Bill Clinton and current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, exchanged vows with Marc Mezvinsky, her longtime boyfriend, whose parents served as members of Congress.
