Theballerlife.com would like to congratulate NBA Hall of famer Michael Jordan, 50, and his wife and former model Yvette Prieto, 35, on tying the knot over the weekend in Palm Beach, Florida in front of a few hundred family members and closest friends.
ABC News via the Associated Press reports:
The wedding took place at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea with nearly 300 guests in attendance, including Tiger Woods, Patrick Ewing, Spike Lee and Ahmad Rashad.
The ceremony was followed by a reception at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Fla., a luxurious private golf club designed by Jack Nicklaus. Jordan, 50, owns a home near the course.
There were fireworks at night as part of the celebration.
The six-time NBA champion and Prieto met five years ago and were engaged last December.
Prieto wore a French silk voile corseted sheer sheath gown by J’Aton Couture, in an ecru palette with accents of flesh tones, with handmade silk lace created especially for her, and enhanced with Swarovski crystals. The gown featured French seamed crinoline borders, which cascaded into a dramatic cathedral train finished in the lace, with accents of a peacock-feathered design.
The entertainment included DJ MC Lyte, singers K’Jon, Robin Thicke and Grammy-Award winner Usher and The Source, an 18-piece band.
Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Jordan.
