Sandberg and Bernthal were surrounded by family and friends as they said their vows on Saturday. 

The couple’s five children — Sandberg with her son and a daughter, and Bernthal with three children — all served as members of the bridal party. 

Sandberg’s children are from her marriage to her late husband Dave Goldberg, who died suddenly in 2015.His brother, Rob, who introduced the couple in 2019, served as a co-officiant, according to People Magazine. 

‘It is our wedding as the seven of us,’ Bernthal told People Magazine.

‘We keep saying, ‘We’re all getting married,” Sandberg reportedly added.

In lieu of gifts, the couple asked that guests donate to VOW and CARE to fund anti-child marriage programs and poverty alleviation efforts, the magazine reported.   

Sandberg said: ‘While we are choosing to get married, thousands around the world are still forced to marry as children. We’re making donations ourselves,’ she added, ‘but also inviting our guests to celebrate with us and try to end child marriage.’

Sandberg, one of the most powerful women in tech and the top lieutenant to Meta CEO , made the decision to leave Meta earlier this year after having worked at the company for 14 years.

‘I’m really focused on what I’m going to do,’ she explained.’Next, stan philanthropically and I am staying on the board and I have a leader of the philanthropy now.’

Sandberg is no stranger to advocacy work. She is the co-founder and board chair of the Lean In Foundation, which acts a global community dedicated to helping foster leadership, advancement and inclusion for women in the workplace.

She also plans to refocus her work on women’s issues and philanthropy as Roe v Wade is under assault.

‘This is a really important moment for women. This that Sandberg made her surprise exit as the company’s number two while the firm continues to review her wedding to Bernthal, the brother of actor Jon Bernthal. 

Although the sources said the investigation was still active, a Meta spokeswoman insisted to DailyMail.com this summer that: ‘Sheryl did not inappropriately use company resources in connection with the planning of her wedding

‘This has nothing to do with Sheryl’s departure from the company.’

Sandberg shocked the business world when she announced her departure from the company, saying she was feeling ‘burned out’ and feeling like a ‘punching bag’ over the criticisms Meta and have faced in recent years, WSJ reported. 

The parent company, Meta Platforms, founder Mark Zuckerberg and other execs have faced mounting pressure to re-evaluate their social media services following a bombshell whistle blower report last year that revealed the company was well-aware of the negative effects Instagram was having on teens but did little to change. 

Sandberg, who will remain as a Meta board member, allegedly felt the brunt of the pressure, according to those close to her, who suggested she felt targeted by critics because she was the company’s most powerful woman. 

Sandberg herself appeared to harbor no ill-will towards Meta or boss Zuckerberg as she said she was excited for the company’s future advances. 

‘Sitting by Mark’s side for these 14 years has been the honor and privilege of a lifetime,’ she wrote in her resignation post.’I am so immensely proud of everything this team has achieved.’

Sandberg has served as chief operating officer at the social media giant since 2008 after leaving Google, four years before Facebook went public. 

‘When I took this job in 2008, I hoped I would be in this role for five years.Fourteen years later, it is time for me to write the next chapter of my life,’ Sandberg wrote on her Facebook page. 

She did not say what she planned to do for the next step of her career, only that her immediate focus is on her wedding and charity work. 

Sandberg has an estimated net worth of $1.6 billion and is a noted philanthropist in addition to authoring the bestselling book in support of professional women, Lean In. 

In 2015, Sandberg’s husband Dave Goldberg died tragically and unexpectedly at age 47, after suffering a heart arrhythmia on a treadmill.The couple had shared two children together.

Sandberg later dated Bobby Kotick, CEO of Activision Blizzard, but split with him in 2019 after a three-year relationship.

In February 2020, Sandberg announced her engagement to Bernthal.

Prior to joining Facebook, Sandberg was vice president of Global Online Sales and Operations at Google, chief of staff for the United States Treasury Department under former President Bill Clinton.

Her impressive resume also includes stints as a management consultant with McKinsey & Company and an economist with the World Bank.

A Harvard University graduate, Sandberg is the author of several books, including the 2013 feminist manifesto Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead.

 Sandberg has led Facebook — now Meta’s — advertising business and was responsible for nurturing it from its infancy into an over $100 billion-a-year powerhouse. 

As the company’s second most-recognized face — after CEO Mark Zuckerberg — Sandberg has also become a polarizing figure amid revelations of how some of her business decisions for Facebook helped propagate misinformation and hate speech.

 As one of the most prominent female executives in the tech industry, she was also often criticized for not doing enough both for women and for others harmed by Facebook’s products. 

Her public-speaking expertise, her seemingly effortless ability to bridge the worlds of tech, business and politics served as a sharp contrast to Zuckerberg, especially in Facebook’s early years.But Zuckerberg has since been catching up, trained in part for the several congressional hearings he’s been called to testify in to defend Facebook’s practices.

Neither Sandberg nor Zuckerberg gave any indication that Sandberg’s resignation wasn’t her decision. But she’s also appeared somewhat sidelined in recent years, with other executives close to Zuckerberg, such as Chris Cox — who returned in 2020 as chief product officer after a yearlong break from the company —becoming more prominent.

‘Sheryl Sandberg had an enormous impact on Facebook, Meta, and the broader business world.

She helped Facebook build a world-class ad-buying platform and develop groundbreaking ad formats,’ said Debra Aho Williamson, an analyst at Insider Intelligence. But she added that Facebook faced ‘huge scandals’ under Sandberg’s watch — including the 2016 U.S.

presidential election, the Cambridge Analytica privacy debacle in 2018, and the 2021 riot at the U.S. Capitol.

And now, Meta is ‘facing a slowdown in user growth and ad revenue that is now testing the business foundation that the company was built on,’ she said.’The company needs to find a new way forward, and perhaps this was the best time for Sandberg to depart.’

Sandberg is leaving Meta in the fall and will continue to serve on the company’s board.

Zuckerberg said in his own Facebook post that Javier Olivan, who currently oversees key functions at Meta’s four main apps — Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp and Messenger — will serve as Meta’s new COO.But it will be a different job than the one Sandberg held for the past 14 years.

 ‘It will be a more traditional COO role where Javi will be focused internally and operationally, building on his strong track record of making our execution more efficient and rigorous,’ Zuckerberg wrote.

While Sandberg has long been Zuckerberg’s No.2, even sitting next to him — pre-pandemic, at least — in the company’s Menlo Park, California, headquarters, she also had a very public-facing job, meeting with lawmakers, holding focus groups and speaking out on issues such as women in the workplace and, most recently, abortion.

‘I think Meta has reached the point where it makes sense for our product and business groups to be more closely integrated, rather than having all the business and operations functions organized separately from our products,’ Zuckerberg wrote.

Sandberg, who lost her husband Dave Goldberg suddenly in 2015, said she is ‘not entirely sure what the future will bring.’

  ‘But I know it will include focusing more on my foundation and philanthropic work, which is more important to me than ever given how critical this moment is for women,’ she wrote, adding that she is also getting married this summer and that parenting their expanded family of five children will also be a part of this future.

Sandberg, first helped Google build what quickly became the internet’s biggest — and most lucrative — advertising network.But she left that post to take on the challenge of transforming Facebook’s freewheeling social network into a money-making business while also helping to mentor Zuckerberg, who was then 23 to her 38.

'This is a really important moment for women. This is a really important moment for me to be able to do more with my philanthropy, with my foundation,' Sandberg said. She is pictured with Lean In Foundation at a march in January 2019

She proved to be exactly what the then-immature Zuckerberg and the company needed at the right time, helping to pave the way to Facebook’s highly anticipated initial public offering of stock a decade ago.

While Zuckerberg remained Facebook’s visionary and controlling shareholder, Sandberg became engine of a business fueled by a rapidly growing digital ad business that has become nearly as successful as the one that she helped cobbled together around Google’s dominant search engine.

Just like Google’s ad empire, Facebook’s business thrived on its ability to keep its users coming back for more of its free services while leveraging its social networking technology to learn more about people’s interests, habits, and whereabouts — a nosy model that has repeatedly entangled the company in debates about whether a right to personal privacy still exists in an increasingly digital age.

 As one of the top female executives in technology, Sandberg has at times has been held up as an inspiration for working women — a role she seemed to embrace with a best-selling 2013 book titled ‘Lean In: Women, Work and the Will To Lead.’

But ‘Lean In’ received immediate criticism.New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd called Sandberg a ‘PowerPoint Pied Piper in Prada ankle boots,’ and critics suggested she is the wrong person to lead a women’s movement.

She addressed some of that criticism in a subsequent book that addressed the death of her husband, Dave Goldberg.In 2015 she became a symbol of heartbreaking grief when Goldberg died in an accident while working out on vacation, widowing her with two children as she continued to help run one of the world’s best-known companies.

In early May, Sandberg reiterated her stance on abortion rights, taking to Facebook to say the medical procedure was 'one of our most fundamental rights.' She made the post, despite the fact that Meta's Respectful Communication Policy bans employees from discussing abortion

Sandberg has had some public missteps at the company, including her attempt to deflect blame from Facebook for the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S.Capitol. 

In an interview later that month that was streamed by Reuters, she said she thought the events of the day were ‘largely organized on platforms that don’t have our abilities to stop hate, don’t have our standards and don’t have our transparency.’

Internal documents revealed by whistleblower Frances Haugen later that year, however, showed that Facebook’s own employees were concerned about the company’s halting and often reversed response to rising extremism in the U.S.that culminated in the events of Jan. 6.

‘Haven’t we had enough time to figure out how to manage discourse without enabling violence?’ one employee wrote on an internal message board at the height of the Jan. 6 turmoil. ‘We’ve been fueling this fire for a long time and we shouldn’t be surprised it’s now out of control.’
