Fifty year old Charlotte Bobcats owner and basketball legend Michael Jordan married his thirty-five year old, model girlfriend of five years Yvette Prieto, Sat in Palm Beach, FL.
The lavish wedding was held in a 40,000 square foot tent (one of the largest in history), with over 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.
In lieu of wedding gifts, donations were made to the James R. Jordan Foundation. The wedding flowers were donated to the Jupiter Medical Center.
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 couple and their guests were entertained by DJ MC Lyte, singers K’Jon, Robin Thicke and Grammy-Award winner Usher and The Source.
Guests were treated to an all-white, seven-layer rum wedding cake, covered in white fondant and sugar crystals, complete with the couples’ monogram on the top layer.
