Michael Jordan Marries Model Yvette Prieto
The NBA star ties the knot with model fiancé Yvette Prieto in Florida
Talk about a slam dunk!
After five years of dating, former NBA star Michael Jordan, 50, and his model-fiancée, Yvette Prieto, 35, made it official with a wedding in Palm Beach, Fla., on Saturday.
About 300 guests arrived by tour buses at an Episcopal church called Bethesda-by-the-Sea, where Donald Trump was married to Melania in 2005.
Jordan then invited guests to join them for the reception at the Bears Club, a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course community in Jupiter, Fla., where Jordan recently built a 38,000-square-foot home.
“They’ve been planning for months and months,” says a source of the nuptials, which were done by celebrity wedding planner Sharon Sacks. “He wanted to give Yvette everything she’s ever wanted.”
Jordan, now the owner of the Charlotte Bobcats, proposed over the Christmas holidays in 2011. They applied for their wedding license in March at the Palm Beach County courthouse.
On Friday afternoon, they were spotted attending their rehearsal at the church.
Prieto, 35, met Jordan at a Miami nightclub in 2008.
This is the second marriage for the Chicago Bulls legend. He and his first wife Juanita Vanoy divorced in 2006 after 17 years of marriage, and the couple have three grown children together.
