Congratulations are in order for NBA player Russell Westbrook and his college sweetheart Nina Earl – the couple has officially wed, his rep exclusively confirms to PEOPLE.

Westbrook and Earl, who met while at UCLA playing for the school’s men’s and women’s basketball teams, respectively, tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony at the famed Beverly Hills Hotel on Saturday.

The Oklahoma City Thunder point guard and Earl were married in front of friends and family, and several of Westbrook’s current and former teammates – including, Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Serge Ibaka, Dorrell Wright and James Harden (who brought along Khloé Kardashian as his date).

The bride wore two dresses, the first by designer Vera Wang and the second by Monique Lhullier. Westbrook, 26, wore a tuxedo by celebrity favorite Tom Ford.

The pair walked out of the ceremony to the tune of the Queen Bey, herself, and had their first dance to Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo’s “Nothing Even Matters.”

R&B royalty was also in attendance – Keri Hilson joined the festivities, and Grammy winner Miguel gave a surprise performance around 11 p.m.

Guests were asked to enjoy the ceremony and reception without cameras or phones. The couple’s cakes were crafted by Joanie and Leigh’s Cakes of Bel Air, California, and the wedding floral arrangements were done by Mark’s Garden in Sherman Oaks, California. The entire ceremony was pulled together by famed party planner Mindy Weiss.
