The father of the bride has arrived!
Bill Gates arrived by chopper in NYC on Thursday, ahead of his daughter Jennifer’s extravagant wedding to Nayel Nassar on Saturday, October 16.
Moments before Bill’s arrival, Jennifer and mom Melinda were spotted pampering themselves in The Big Apple. The mother/daughter duo were snapped at Salon M in Tribeca, where they reportedly spent hours inside relaxing.
The 25-year-old was also seen loading several bags into a private car, presumably her attire for the upcoming ceremony.
As OK! previously reported, Jennifer is tying the knot with her equestrian beau at her 124-acre $16 million horse farm in New York. Her parents bought her the compound in 2018 after graduating from Stanford University.
A source spilled the bash is “totally over-the-top” adding it’s costing the family “at least $2 million.”
Jennifer announced her engagement to the millionaire show jumper last year. “Nayel Nassar, you are one of a kind. Absolutely swept me off my feet this past weekend, surprising me in the most meaningful location over one of our many shared passions,” she captioned a snap of the lovebirds via Instagram on January 29, 2020. “I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing and loving together. Yes a million times over. 💍AHHH!!!”
The celebration of love comes shortly after Bill and Melinda’s billion dollar divorce was finalized in August. The Microsoft co-founder — who has an estimated net worth of $130 billion — announced he and Melinda, 57, were going their separate ways in May after 27 years of marriage.
“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” the 65-year-old wrote in a joint statement posted on Twitter. “We no longer believe we can grow together as a couple in this next phase of our lives.”
The former flames also share son Rory, 22, and daughter Phoebe, 19, together.
