Chelsea Clinton Rhinebeck, NY Wedding - FAA Says No Fly Zone
Clinton Wedding: Rhinebeck, New York Braces For The Wedding Of The Century: From No Fly Zones To Vegan/Vegetarian Menu
The Chelsea Clinton Wedding is days away and all eyes are turning to the lovely historic town, nestled along the Hudson River a short drive north of New York City.
Rhinebeck first settled by the Dutch in the 1680s has never seen so much attention and likely has never had to fulfill requests or endure restrictions from the Clintons, to the media, and now the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is declaring the wedding between Chelsea Clinton and investment banker Marc Mezvinsky, a no-fly zone.
According to a report by AP, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) says local airspace over the couple’s Hudson River wedding location will be restricted from 3 p.m. Saturday to 3:30 a.m. Sunday.
According to the FAA website, the restriction will be in place for “VIP (Very Important Person) Movement.”
Chelsea Clinton Vegan Wedding Dinner
Unofficial reports have Chelsea Clinton have a Vegetarian/Vegan option as part of the wedding dinner.
According to one source, the catering for the event is being done by Josh Kroner of the Terrapin Restaurant in Rhinebeck, NY. A quick look on UrbanSpoon finds that Terrapin is regarded as both vegan and gluten-free friendly — two qualities that no doubt aided in them landing the job.
Other sources say Ahi Tun and grass fed organic beef will be on the menu.
