Mr Zuckerberg, 28, announced the news by updating his Facebook page.
‘Mark added a life event to May 19, 2012 on his timeline: Married Priscilla Chan,’ the activity feed read.
The update, which was liked by more than 500,000 people, was accompanied by a photo of the happy couple in their wedding outfits.
Mr Zuckerberg ditched his hoodie and put on a suit for the occasion, while the 27-year-old bride wore a traditional white dress.
It is believed the ceremony took place in the entrepreneur’s backyard in front of around 100 guests, who were told they had been invited to a party to celebrate Ms Chan’s graduation from the University of California’s medical school.
The couple have been together for nine years after meeting at Harvard.
Mr Zuckerberg’s previous entry on his Facebook page came on Friday and read: ‘Mark listed FB on Nasdaq.’
It understated the event, as the initial public offering was the third largest in US corporate history and cemented his status as a multi-billionaire.
