Their wedding took place at the couple’s horse farm in Westchester County in North Salem, located around 80 kilometres north of Manhattan.
The 50-hectare property is understood to have been purchased for Jennifer, who was an equestrian, by her parents in 2018 as a graduation present for around $21 million.

The celebrations began with an Islamic marriage ceremony on Friday with just the bride and groom, and their immediate families, present.
Their main ceremony took place on the Saturday evening.
Jennifer and Nayel married under a canopy of white delphinium flowers suspended from a glass canopy above, while the white runway was lined on either side with the same flowers.

Her gown was accessorised with an ivory Italian tulle chapel length veil.
After the evening ceremony, Jennifer changed into a second gown by Vera Wang Haute, featuring a square neckline, nude tulle and embellished with hand appliqué French macrame lace.
Photos shared by wedding planner Marcy Blum Events show the bride and groom at their reception standing next to their six layer floral-adorned cake by Sylvia Weinstock for Ladurée.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, all guests had to be fully vaccinated and show proof of a negative COVID-19 test before attending.
Jennifer and Nayel met on the equestrian circuit and became engaged in January last year while on a ski holiday.
She is now a medical student at the Icahn School of Medicine Mount Sinai while Nayel recently competed at the Tokyo Olympics representing Egypt.

The photos showed several large pavilions featuring floor-to-ceiling glass windows, along with a huge circular stage.
One neighbour said the wedding would be “the biggest party our town has ever seen”.
