Mary-Kate Olsen is a married woman. The “Full House” alum wed longtime love Olivier Sarkozy in a secret ceremony over the weekend, according to People on Sunday. The wedding took place at a private residence on 49th Street in Manhattan, where 50 guests joined the couple for cocktails and dinner. One source revealed to Page Six that the celebration was stocked with “bowls and bowls filled with cigarettes, and everyone smoked the whole night.” Attendees were required to turn off their cell phones.
Mary-Kate Olsen, 29, is the twin sister of Ashley Olsen, while Olivier Sarkozy, 46, is the half-brother of former French President Nicolas Sarkozy. The names of the wedding guests were not revealed, but Olsen’s sister Elizabeth recently told E! News that her whole family planned to get together in New York over the Thanksgiving holiday.
The newlywed couple began dating in 2012, and their 17-year age gap raised some eyebrows. Last year, Mary-Kate Olsen told WSJ magazine that she chooses to ignore the media attention over the couple’s age gap. This is the first marriage for Olsen and the second for Olivier Sarkozy, who has two children from his previous marriage to Charlotte Bernard.
Mary-Kate Olsen and her sister Ashley first shot to fame in the 1980s, when they shared the role of Michelle Tanner on the hit ABC sitcom “Full House.” As an adult, the actress traded her acting career for a high-profile career as a fashion designer, while her husband Olivier Sarkozy is a French banker. The newlyweds currently live in a $6.25 million townhouse in New York City.
