Taiwan's richest man Terry Guo, chairman of the Hon Hai Group, yesterday had her daughter marry her long-time boyfriend, with Morris Chang, chairman of Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. (TSMC), serving as the witness for the wedding at the Grand Hyatt Taipei.
At 11:00 a.m., five Mercedes-Benz sedans carrying four couples of best men and bridesmaids as well as bride Tsao Shih-chieh arrived at the residence of bridegroom Guo Hsiao-ling at Section 5 of Hsinyi Road.
One hour later, the sedans departed for the Grand Hyatt and reached the hotel at 12:30 p.m. The new couple then openly met reporters, allowing them to take photos at the lobby of the hotel.
At the wedding banquet held last night at the Grand Hyatt, there were around 50 tables served, with each table costing over NT$20,000 for dishes.
While witnessing the wedding party, TSMC's Chang wished the new couple a happy life after getting married and hoped their love would last forever.
Among the guests at the party were heavyweights in the high-tech sector, including Barry Lam, chairman of Quanta Computer; Robert Tsao, former chairman of the United Microelectronics Corp.; and Stan Shih, former chairman of the Acer Group, among others.
It was reported that Terry Guo's gift to the newlyweds is a NT$250 million house.
The bride, Guo Hsiao-ling, 31, graduated from the University of California, Berkeley as a major in economics and financial management, while the bridegroom, Tsao Shih-chieh, 30, majored in electrical engineering and computer science at the University of California, Irvine.
