Get More Info On Ivanka Trump Kushner Live After Married
Ivanka Trump married New York Observer owner Jared Kushner Sunday in a private Orthodox Jewish ceremony at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, NJ. The bride, 27, wore a Vera Wang gown inspired by Grace Kelly. People magazine called the affair a "lavish ceremony" with 500 guests. People reports that Donald Trump gave a simple toast: "Be happy and enjoy your life."
The celebrating isn't over yet for newlyweds Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, who tied the knot on Sunday. A post-wedding reception hosted by the groom's parents – Seryl and Charles Kushner, a New Jersey real-estate developer – was held Wednesday night at the historic Puck Building in New York City.
"Jared and I are very similar in that we're very ambitious," she told Sherman. "That's what makes it so amazing to be in a relationship with someone who is supportive of that. I'm happy for him when he is in the office working late. I know how good that feels when you sit down and return e-mails."
Guests referred to the party as Sheva Brachot, which is a special Jewish wedding blessing usually accompanied by a meal – in this case, a variety of kosher food, as well as hamburgers, hotdogs, steak sandwiches, sushi and salad.
Although Wednesday's party consisted mostly of friends of the Kushner family, both of Trump's parents, Donald and Ivana Trump, attended with other members of the family. Mother of the bride Ivana told PEOPLE, "It was fabulous and very elegant. A beautiful event for the young couple."
"It was a really wonderful warm feeling in the Kushner family," added a guest. "A lot of love. They seem very happy. Jared and I both work long hours," Trump explains. "He is successful in his own right and very active in his work. Like my father, he encourages me to follow my passion for real estate."
Just two weeks after the wedding, Trump, also a jewelry designer and boardroom judge for Celebrity Apprentice, will be on the scene to open one of her pet projects, the Trump International Hotel & Tower Waikiki in Honololu, Hawaii.
"Of course I will be there," Trump tells PEOPLE. "Trump hotels are the focus of what I do. Jared is not intimidated by my work, he is incredibly busy, too."
She had a strong model to emulate. "My parents have both led nontraditional lifestyle – but they have extremely traditional relationships with their children," the onetime model writes in her new book,The Trump Card, Playing To Win In Work And Life, out Tuesday. "They might have taken me to boxing matches or trips around the word but at the end of the day they were always my parents, not my best friends."
