THE GROOM: The couple have much in common. Not only is Marc Mezvinsky from a political family — they also come complete with their own scandal.
The son of former Iowa congressman Edward Mezvinsky and former NBC reporter and congresswoman Marjorie Margolies Mezvinsky, 32-year-old Marc was raised in Philadelphia with ten siblings.
Like Chelsea, he has also eschewed politics, although for less altruistic causes, swapping Capitol Hill for Wall Street, where he worked for investment bank Goldman Sachs, then a small hedge fund. It appears to have brought great financial rewards. In February 2008 he bought a Fifth Avenue apartment for around $4million which he now shares with his fiance. The ring he gave Chelsea is valued at more than a million dollars..
Collectors say the Marc Mezvinsky rookie card is more valuable than the Bernie Madoff rookie card and will explode in value if Marc ends up in jail like his dad Ed.
