Ivanka Trump marries Jared Kushner on a New Jersey golf course

Ivanka Trump
I’ve actually been following the engagement and now marriage of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. I think I enjoyed the stories because it’s surprisingly old-fashioned – both are scions of wealthy real-estate-developing New York families, both are in the media (in Kushner’s case, he’s a media publisher), and both are seemingly well-adjusted, nice people. Their lack of anything tawdry, shocking or gross is what fascinates me, I suppose. It’s all so old-school! Oh… wait. Jared’s father is felon. But The Donald is no prize either, so I guess that’s the small scandal.

Anyway, 27-year-old Ivanka Trump (daughter of Ivana and Donald) married 28-year-old Jared Kushner (publisher of the New York Observer) in New Jersey on Sunday after a three month engagement. They wed at her father’s golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey in front of 500 invited guests. The bride wore Vera Wang, and by most accounts it was a totally elegant ceremony. Oh, and Ivanka converted to Judaism too! Mazel tov!

Jewelry designer and entrepreneur Ivanka Trump is a married woman!

The 27-year-old daughter of Donald Trump swapped vows with New York Observer owner Jared Kushner Sunday in New Jersey, Usmagazine.com has confirmed.

The afternoon nuptials took place on the grounds of the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Ivanka wore a Vera Wang wedding gown, inspired by Grace Kelly.

“She was the most stunning bride,” a rep for Ivanka tells Us.

Despite a short engagement, Ivanka says the plan for her special day quickly fell into place — thanks to a wedding planner who kept her on task.

“I only had a 3 month engagement so it was all done pretty quickly,” the newlywed told Us before the ceremony during the launch party for her new 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!”

Another big plus that bodes well for their nuptials? Dad Donald is a fan of Kushner.

“They make a magnificent couple,” the mogul has told Us of Ivanka and his new son-in-law.

Ivanka announced her engagement last July via Twitter. “I got engaged last night…truly the happiest day of my life!!!” she wrote.

The couple have been dating since 2007. They briefly split, but reconciled in July 2008. Trump, an executive vice president at the Trump Organization, converted to Judaism for Kushner, the owner of the New York Observer.

See, doesn’t it seem like a nice ceremony? I wonder if The Donald cried. He seems like he could be a sentimental man. Or perhaps he was just thinking about all of the property the two families can now develop together. Anyhoodle, do you think Ivanka will get knocked up right away? I bet she does.

    I read where his mother was very against his relationship with Ivanka, and that was the reason they initially broke up. Once she agreed to convert, the mother softened on Ivanka.

    Well congrats to both. I hope they have a lovely life together.

    Jeeze a three month engagement is very short. In regards to offspring, she has said she is in no rush to get pregnant because then she will have to make compromises in her life. In a non-old-fashioned move she is focusing on her career.

    She is a smart, beautiful woman. Mazel tov!

    There are plenty of nice Jewish girls out there, Jared! You didn’t need to MAKE one! *sigh* How can we ever please our mothers when nice (rich…) Jewish boys go after shiksas?

    I kid, I kid, of course. I like Ivanka, she’s my favorite heiress (one of the few who wouldn’t be a hopeless case without daddy’s money). The wedding sounds lovely and elegant, hope we see some pics!

    She looks beautiful. Best wishes to them both.

    I always liked her,,, but too bad! Game on!! What is your guess on how many times she will be married? I’m putting my money on 3 times overall. If she had to re-brand her core beliefs to get this hoser, it won’t last.

    I really like Ivanka Trump even though I didn’t want to – I thought she would be another Paris Hilton heiress-type. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised when she opened her mouth – she is one bright and articulate girl. Obviously the Donald and Ivana did something right raising this girl. I wish her and her new husband the best.

    LOL @ Mandy!

    It would appear that both Ivanka and Donald Jr have made excellent choices in life and regarding their life partners. I read an article about Donald Jr. and his wife somewhere and they seem adorable. I wish them well!

    I watched Regis and Kelly this morning and Regis was gushing about how he got to sit at Donalds Trump table for the dinner.

    I wonder how many of the 500 people, Ivanka actually knew or had even met before…

  12. Maritza says:

    I wish them happiness, they make a beautiful couple. Can’t wait to see the wedding pictures.

    I want to know where she got that necklace. i want one

  14. Firestarter says:

    @Cindy- I think it is from her jewelry line.

  15. Juice In LA says:

    She has a jewelery line? Whew!!! because initially I thought that necklace was real? I can’t even imagine the value if it were. seriously, its like someone stole beyonce and mariah and jLo’s engagement rings, super sized them and then made them emerald cut diamonds…
