Melinda Gates and her bride-to-be daughter Jennifer arrived at Manhattan’s Plaza Hotel in style Wednesday ahead of Jennifer’s extravagant wedding, exclusive photos show.
Jennifer Gates, 25, — who will tie the knot with fellow equestrian Nayel Nassar, 30, on her bucolic horse farm in Westchester County Saturday — wore a lacy, all-white dress with a matching purse and long red locks as she rolled up to the hotel.
Melinda Gates, the 57-year-old billionaire ex-wife of Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, rocked a pink dress and wrap with heels as the Gates gals arrived with a large security detail.
Nassar was spotted sporting a more casual look with jeans and sneakers as he arrived at the posh hotel in an SUV on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Jennifer’s father Bill was spotted over the weekend in Indian Wells, California watching the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament.
Images of the Microsoft founder taken Sunday show him sitting next to a gray-haired woman believed to be his longtime paramour Ann Winblad — the woman he dated before settling down with Melinda and who he took getaways with each year. His sister Kristi Gates was also in attendance at the tennis tournament.
Staff for the Gates family have been working to build massive, raised pavilions with floor-to-ceiling glass windows for the wedding on Jennifer Gate’s 124-acre, $16 million North Salem farm.
She was gifted the property by her wealthy parents shortly after graduating from Stanford University.
