Bill Gates and Melinda French Gates are prepping for the wedding of their daughter, Jennifer.

The 25-year-old medical student and accomplished equestrian is set to marry fellow professional equestrian Nayel Nassar, 30. He represented Egypt this past summer in the Tokyo Olympics. 

According to the New York Post, Jennifer and Nayel are saying their "I dos" on Saturday, Oct. 16 at the Gates' 124-acre, $16 million horse farm in Westchester County, New York. The billionaires bought the North Salem farm in 2018. 

According to reports, the affair is costing the Gates family "at least" $2 million. Elaborate pavilions are being built on the property with floor-to-ceiling windows and hardwood floors.
