Money was no object for Michael Jordan’s second wedding. The NBA legend tied the knot with Yvette Prieto in a star-studded, extravagant ceremony in Palm Beach, Fla. on Saturday, April 27.
Jordan, 50, and the Cuban-American model, 34, said “I do” at Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea and then headed to a lavish reception, coordinated by star wedding planner Sharon Sacks, in a large tent at Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Fla. A source tells Us Weekly that the couple’s wedding cost an estimated $10 million.
Over 300 people attended Jordan and Prieto’s big day, including Tiger Woods, Scottie Pippen, Patrick Ewing and Spike Lee. According to the insider, Woods’ girlfriend Lindsey Vonn was invited to attend, but she was busy training in Colorado. Usher, Robin Thicke and K’Jon also were there to give special performances during the night.
An insider exclusively tells Us that newlyweds shared their first dance to K’Jon’s “On the Ocean.” The bride wore a stunning French silk J’Aton Couture gown with Swarovski crystals.
“They are so in love,” the source tells Us of the couple of five years. “The warmth and the love was just overflowing. It was a wonderful day and will be a wonderful marriage!”
The reception space was decorated with crystal candelabras, candles and white roses, peonies and tulips with purple accents.
“The attention to detail was magnificent,” the source says. “The tent even smelled beautiful. I looked like the most luscious garden you could imagine. You walked into the dining room and it looked like heaven. The room was filled with thousands of candles, thousands. It was heavenly.” (Us Weekly)
