Further putting rumors of a rift to rest, visibly happy couple Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky – holding hands and swaying to music – had several reasons to be all smiles Wednesday night.
First off, her father, former President Bill Clinton, was an honoree at an all-star evening to mark the 25th anniversary of the anthem to fight AIDS, "That's What Friends Are For."
The amfAR gala, which helped kick off New York Fashion Week, also marked a sweet reunion for Chelsea and Marc, after he had been skiing in Wyoming. At the benefit, held at the Cipriani Wall Street in Lower Manhattan, the investment banker, 33, danced with his wife, 30, who is pursuing a Ph.D. at New York University's Wagner School of Public Service.
Along with the entire crowd – who included Julianna Margulies, Richard Gere, Harry Belafonte, Iman and Rosie O'Donnell – Bill Clinton marveled at the still-pitch-perfect voice of Dionne Warwick, 70. Also on-hand to belt out solos from the stage: Stevie Wonder, Gladys Knight and Sir Elton John.

Chelsea Clinton's marriage to Marc Mezvinsky is just fine, thank you very much.
Despite reports suggesting that there may be trouble between the couple, who got married last summer in Rhinebeck, N.Y., a friend of the family tells PEOPLE, "The happy couple are happy."
Adds the friend: "Any report suggesting there is trouble in the marriage is absolutely false."
Mezvinsky, 33, an investment banker who had been working for the Manhattan financial firm G3 Capital, recently left his job. What he plans to do next is not known, but in the meantime he is taking advantage of his time off to ski in Jackson Hole, Wyo.

Chelsea Clinton walked down the aisle in a Vera Wang dream dress – and later changed into a Grecian-inspired gown for the reception, where the new bride and her groom, Marc Mezvinsky, charmed everyone on the dance floor.
"They were amazing," one wedding guest told Women's Wear Daily. "It was like watching Dancing with the Stars. They definitely took lessons."

Chelsea Clinton could have chosen just about any town for her Saturday wedding to investment banker Marc Mevinsky – but since she chose Rhinebeck, N.Y., the small town north of Manhattan is suddenly in the spotlight.
Here are five fun facts about the town where the former First Daughter will become a bride.
This Isn't the Town's First Brush with Fame
Rhinebeck, N.Y., is the birthplace of Emma Roberts, daughter of actor Eric Roberts – and niece of Eat Pray Love star Julia Roberts. Emma was born on February 10, 1991, in Northern Dutchess Hospital. Singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright was also born here in 1973. And singer Natalie Merchant also has a place nearby.

The town of Rhinebeck, N.Y., is abuzz with preparations and news outlets are clamoring for details, but what's really going on when it comes to the Saturday wedding of former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton and fiancé Marc Mezvinsky?
PEOPLE tracked down some of the juiciest rumors and burning questions:
1. Could it really be costing $5 million?
Not even close. Sources close to the bride's parents, who are paying for the wedding, cast recent tabloid "guesstimates" of a wedding budget between $3 million to $5 million as so grossly fabricated they are unworthy of comment. One longtime family friend said the wedding is not exceeding six figures – so in the hundreds-of-thousands dollar range, not millions.

Here comes the father of the bride.
A day before his daughter's wedding, Bill Clinton arrived in Rhinebeck, N.Y., where the nuptials will reportedly take place Saturday, and was spotted grabbing lunch at a local restaurant.
The former president, 63, greeted fans after dining in a private room at Gigi's, Mid Hudson News reports.
Other members of the family are expected to arrive later, according to the local paper.

With only two days until Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky tie the knot, the bride-to-be isn't the only excited one.
Ed Mezvinsky, 73, Clinton's future father-in-law and former U.S. congressman, is looking forward to Saturday's big event and was spotted getting a haircut in Rhinebeck, N.Y., where the affair will take place at the Astor Courts estate.
"These are two wonderful human beings that have sensitivity about life and have a warm regard for family, and that's what it's all about," the former Iowa Rep. tells the New York Post.
