Melinda Gates and Jennifer Gates were spotted spending time together ahead of the much-anticipated wedding in Westchester this weekend.

Melinda, 57, and Jennifer, 25, left The Plaza hotel in New York City on Wednesday after attending a luncheon. Mother and daughter were all smiles.

Jennifer is set to marry Nayel Nassar, a professional show jumper.

Jennifer and Nassar live on the East Coast, according to a Facebook post shared in February. Jennifer is an MD Candidate at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai.

Jennifer revealed she didn’t think she was smart enough to go to medical school but was later convinced by mentors at Stanford University.

“I am deeply interested in studying factors that impact children’s growth and development, most specifically adverse childhood experiences,” Jennifer wrote on Facebook. “Long term, I also hope to contribute by giving people a clear understanding of their conditions and circumstances, so they feel supported by medicine and science.”

The couple met on the prestigious show-jumping circuit and got engaged in January 2020. At the time, Jennifer shared the news on Instagram, with a photo of the two of them on a ski vacation. “Nayel Nassar, you are one of a kind,” she wrote.

“Absolutely swept me off my feet this past weekend, surprising me in the most meaningful location over one of our many shared passions. I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives learning, growing, laughing and loving together. Yes a million times over,” the Stanford grad added.

The celebration of love comes five months after Bill, 65, and Melinda, 57, announced their decision to divorce. They were married for over 27 years.
