Jack Ma, chairperson of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba, officiated a mass wedding of 102 couples Friday at the company's headquarters in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province.
The Moonie-style ceremony is the company's ninth mass wedding. Brides and grooms dressed in traditional Chinese clothes from the Han Dynasty (206 BCE - 220 CE) and performed ancient wedding rituals. Ma, as chief witness, raised a glass to deliver his blessing to the couples.
Ma himself has had a pretty blessed month. Alibaba Group filed for a US IPO which is expected to be the largest in history, and due to make Ma incredibly, unbelievably rich. Ma and other Alibaba founders recently announced their intentions to establish a charitable fund along the lines of the Gates Foundation.
