Basketball legend Michael Jordan dances with his new wife Yvette Prieto during their wedding reception at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Fla.
Years after a bitter divorce and with more money added to his already mega fortune, NBA great, Michael Jordan has decided to take the big leap of love and walk down the aisle again! MJ, as he’s lovingly called by fans, got married over the weekend to Yvette Prieto in front of 300 of their family and closest friends.
Jordan, known for his crazy perfect career with the Chicago Bulls, his famous sneakers, Air Jordans and as the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats exchanged vows with the 35-year-old former model on Saturday in Palm Beach, Fla.
And in case you were wondering, Michael Jordan is 50, so that makes him 15 years older than Yvette, but as Aaliyah said, age aint nothing but a number honey, because before marrying, these two have been together ever since their eyes locked in a night club five years ago.
The wedding took place at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea. Guests in attendance included Tiger Woods, Patrick Ewing, Spike Lee and Ahmad Rashad to name a few. The ceremony was followed by a reception of 2,000 at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Fla. MJ, owns a home near the course.
Now, let’s get down to the fashion orgasm and discuss Yvette’s dress! Michael’s new bride wore a French silk voile corseted sheer sheath gown by J’Aton Couture. The dress had an ecru palette with accents of flesh tones and handmade silk lace created especially for her.
The dress was also 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.
To sum it up, it was stunning! As for the entertainment, well, 2,000 of their family and close friends danced to music spun by, late 80s/early 90s popular rapper turned DJ, MC Lyte. And when Lyte wasn’t spinning, singers like K’Jon, Robin Thicke and Grammy-Award winner Usher and The Source entertained wedding goers along side an 18-piece band.
Much like the entertainment, the desert wasn’t short stepping either! The guests were served an all-white, seven-layer white rum wedding cake that was covered in white fondant and sugar crystals, and adorned with crystal brooches and the couples’ monogram on the top layer.
The couple ended the night with a bang when fireworks topped off the celebration! Sounds fabulous!
Congratulations Mike and Yvette, and if you guys decide to do a vow renewal, keep us in mind because we’ll be waiting for our invitation!
