After three years of dating, former child star Mary-Kate Olsen married Olivier Sarkozy, the half-brother of former French president Nicolas Sarkozy, in an intimate Manhattan ceremony on Friday, Nov. 27.

Olsen, 29, and Sarkozy, 46, have frequently been the subject of paparazzi photos in and around New York City, where the couple lives and works. Olsen is now a fashion designer and Sarkozy works as a banker.

Not much is known about the ceremony itself, other than a bizarre detail reported by Page Six of The New York Post — apparently there were “bowls and bowls filled with cigarettes” at the ceremony and “everybody smoked all night.”

Also according to Page Six, cocktails were served in a rear garden before the scant 50 guests dined inside. Cellphones had to be turned in before entering the venue for security and privacy reasons.

Olsen and her twin sister Ashley rose to fame in the ’90s sitcom Full House. It was recently revealed that neither Olsen will be reprising the role of Michelle Tanner in the upcoming Full House sequel, Fuller House.

Sarkozy has two children from a previous marriage. This is Olsen’s first marriage.
