NBA legend Michael Jordan married Yvette Prieto Saturday in Palm Beach, Florida.
The 50-year-old owner of the Charlotte Bobcats exchanged wedding vows with his model fiancee at the Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church before making his way to the reception held in a massive 40,000 square foot tent at the Bears Club on the golf course founded by Jack Nicklaus in 1999.
The groom wore a black tuxedo and his bride wore a French silk voile corseted sheer sheath gown by J’Aton Couture, in an ecru palette with accents of flesh tones and enhanced with Swarovski crystals.
She was able to enter the church without being photographed thanks to a group of seven men who shielded her from view with large white umbrellas.
The bridesmaid numbered eight and were dressed in grey floor length gowns in various styles.
Michael’s mother Deloris Peoples was among the 300 attendees. Others included former New York Knicks Patrick Ewing, former Chicago Bulls Scottie Pippen and his wife, Spike Lee and Ahmad Rashad.
The after party was just a short walk away from Jordan’s mega-estate in the exclusive gated community of Jupiter. His neighbor Tiger Woods attended solo … opting not to bring his girlfriend Lindsey Vonn to the high profile event – pic here.
Entertaining at the event were DJ MC Lyte, K’Jon, Robin Thicke, Usher, The Source and an 18-piece band.
Jordan divorced his first wife, Juanita Vanoy Jordan, in 2006. Their three children Jeffrey, 24, Marcus, 22, and Jasmine, 19, attended the ceremony.
Michael’s daughter tweeted, “It’s been a long & beautiful day.”
Jasmine wasted little time in leaving the Sunshine State behind. She posted on Twitter, “Good morning. Thank God for this glorious day. Once again, I’m headed to the airport. Back to Syracuse I go. Ending my junior year this week.”
