Wedding of the Century - Jennifer Gates marries Nayel Nassar

Bill Gates is ready to watch his daughter walk down the aisle.

The billionaire Microsoft co-founder, 65, was seen arriving in New York City on Thursday ahead of daughter Jennifer's wedding to Nayel Nassar this weekend.

Bill was photographed smiling as he stepped off a helicopter alongside family members.

His arrival came one day after Jennifer and mom Melinda French Gates were seen stepping out together.

"They kicked off the celebrations yesterday in N.Y.C.," a source previously told PEOPLE. "Jennifer was with her family and friends yesterday and Nayel with his."

"They both seem very excited about their wedding week," the source added. "It will be a big wedding."

Melinda has also taken an active role in helping Jennifer get ready for her special day — including throwing her an "incredibly special" party last month to celebrate her daughter's exciting new chapter.

"Jennifer is very close with her mom," the source told PEOPLE. "Melinda is a huge part of the wedding preparations."

Jennifer, who is currently an MD Candidate at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, announced her engagement in January 2020.

"I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing and loving together. Yes a million times over," Jennifer captioned her social media post, as she recounted the surprise proposal, which took place over a romantic ski trip.

"I'm feeling like the luckiest (and happiest) man in the world right about now," Nasser, a professional equestrian who competed in the Tokyo Olympics, wrote in his own post. "Love you more than you can possibly imagine, and thank you for making every single day feel like a dream to me. Here's to forever!"

Bill and Melinda announced their separation in May. Court documents filed by Melinda at the time called their marriage "irretrievably broken."

The former couple went on to finalize their divorce in August.

Since her parents' split, Jennifer has continued to share kind words about both her mother and father.

While spending time with her father in May, Jennifer shared a smiling photo of the pair. "Nothing better than quality time with family members," she wrote.

"Happy birthday to our one of a kind mom, woman and hero," she wrote over the summer while celebrating her mom's 57th birthday. "Wishing you the biggest celebrations today and most incredible year ahead."

She could have married some European or Indian prince. I think she settled with a mere millionaire. And she should be looking at Athina Onassis to see how those equestrians behave.

[R10], Bill and Melinda Gates have done far more than you'll ever do to help the poor eat. Not everybody can be a poor and bitter cunt like you. But maybe when you're a little older, say, six? Grown up ideas will start occurring to you. And watch out! You might miss Tellytubbies if you keep typing your bullshit here on DL!

Groveling old serf R15: Never a bride, bridesmaid or anyone's "plus one," you're fated to be a lonely streak of santorum on the sole of your rich overlady's bridal Louboutins.

Fuck off, gramps; you're nothing more than a handy cum rag to the ultra-rich...and me.

That isn't true, R18 / R19. Most of his money will go into property and other assets (agricultural land, billions in gold and silver bullion that he's been buying for decades), as well as his foundation. Who do you think is going to control the foundation and inherit all the assets through it? Gates' ridiculous declarations are lies, as is common for him.

Also, R15, Gates has been trying to patent seeds for decades and is still trying to control food supply for profit. Not to mention that he convinced Astra Zeneca not to give up the patent for their vaccine, and has been investing very heavily in pharmaceutical companies, so as to profit from the vaccines. He is an evil piece of shit (is it any wonder that he was friends with Jeffrey Epstein?), and his ugly daughter is going to inherit his wealth in a way that will save her from paying any taxes on it.

Watch the video below. Vandana Shiva rakes him over the coals, and rightly so.

Not now that his wife is divorcing and taking half. She may leave everything to the kids.

Nayel isn't a polo-player, he's a 'show-jumper' rider. Not that it makes much difference, its all part of the bubble-wrapped equestrian world where reality is just an occasional irritant that you pay other people to look after on your behalf.

As if the groom or his family are going die on that hill. "Jennifer, if you don't convert to my religion the marriage is off!"

He's marrying one of the richest heiress' in the world! Suddenly one's faith becomes irrelevant.

His stepmother, allegedly.

None of the Gates kids are bad-looking, surprisingly. Jennifer is pretty in an east-coast, preppy kind of way and they younger daughter (who is allegedly studying dancing and acting) is actually striking in some photos. Amazing how two plain, almost dorky-appearing people can produce decent looking kids.

Wish the happy couple well but they're marrying under Mercury retrograde. Tsk tsk.

Imagine being rich enough to be able to "hire" one of the biggest bands in the world, just to play at your wedding.

Disgusting.

Jennifer looks boring as hell, so it's not surprising she likes Coldplay.

It's 2021, not 1985. "Best bands" are extinct so you may as well just grab a band out of a hat. Which would make them a hat band.

R19 You can believe what you want but the 124-acre horse farm where Jennifer Gates is getting married was bought in her name. Yeah, she might not get anything in a will but she sure as hell is getting it via trusts, foundations, and straight up gifts while he’s alive.

For all the riches they have, it’s a nice wedding but nothing you’d write home about. All that money and the bride looks…average.

The DM had about 200 pictures from the wedding, but none of the brother. A couple of her younger sister. But I want to see what the brother's looking like these days. Anyone seen a pic (a real one, not the misidentified one floating around).

Dark green is the color of Islam and a beautiful choice for a fall wedding. Bridesmaids all look good in the dark green color.
