We “like” this! While Mark Zuckerberg was taking his company public on Friday, his then-bride-to-be, Priscilla Chan, was quietly putting the final touches on her wedding gown.

For her surprise Saturday nuptials, Chan wore designer Claire Pettibone’s “Sky Between the Branches” gown, an ivory laser-cut floral dress adorned with matte sequins lined in silk. The gown featured subtle cutouts in the overlay, plus an illusion jewel neckline, sheer back and chapel-length train. The dress retails for $4,700 and is available on Pettibone’s website.

“She wore it with such grace,” Pettibone tells PEOPLE of Chan. “Her gown seems to perfectly capture her personality — understated and elegant with a touch of sparkle. It’s a perfect blend of femininity and fashion.”

Pettibone, a Los Angeles-based designer, has also created wedding gowns for stars like Mad Men‘s Elisabeth Moss and American Idol‘s Tamyra Gray, and even designed a bridesmaid dress worn by Cameron Diaz.

Zuckerberg and Chan married in a small ceremony in their Palo Alto, Calif., backyard on Saturday. Guests thought they were coming over for a surprise party to celebrate Chan’s graduation from medical school, however, the couple had been planning the wedding for more than four months.

@Sally: do we *need* your comment? i, for one, love her dress and her choice. i tried on a Pettibone dress before choosing my own … it was gorgeous. Good for her, and hope they had a happy day.

Very rich people, buy a dress, not that expensive. They are understated in any kind of way, that’s what I like about them. They have class and I adore this.

Very nice – So glad she didn’t choose a strapless gown. So tired of them, especially when large ladies wear them with the rolls hanging over the top of the dress in back. Why can’t a wedding consultant just be honest and tell them this look does nothing for them? Anyway, I digress.

What a stylish dress! I’m a big fan of the illusion jewel neckline. Thumbs up to Prisilla!
