The streets are lined with onlookers wanting to catch the latest glimpse of a supposed celebrity. Oprah Winfrey has been sighted here, Kobe Bryant spotted there when in actuality nothing has been confirmed. The secrecy and security around the wedding is true to form when it comes to Chelsea Clinton. She has gained public support and acclaim over the years as she quietly watched the country dig into her parent’s private lives. Never one to use the media for self-promotion, Chelsea Clinton has once again taken a major media event and simply kept quiet.
It is this very quiet demeanor that makes her the true star of her wedding despite the secrecy and speculation. While other celebrities of lesser prominence have made their wedding a public spectacle Chelsea Clinton has quietly kept her dignity. This is why she is so well loved and respected and remains an example to young women everywhere.
The details of the ceremony are few and the media is scrambling to get the latest breaking news but what remains at the heart of this story is a girl who is getting married to the boy she loves. Her wedding is one of the rare instances in American culture where a real life fairy tale wedding catches our attention.
While the country waits and the paparazzi are held at bay the great thing about this day is that a real life happily-ever-after story is happening to a well deserving girl.
