Michael Jordan's mother was seen headed into the church where her star athlete son is going to get married Saturday afternoon.

The wedding is expected to be a massive event as three giant tents have been set up outside of his Florida mansion.

Though neither Michael nor Yvette were seen in public on Friday, they likely were inside the church as they prepare to wed.
Saturday's ceremony will take place at Bethesda-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach.
Local police have been ordered to order back up security for the church between the hours of 2pm and 6pm tomorrow, giving the crew of revelers more than enough time to arrive, attend the ceremony and leave.
Bethesda-By-The-Sea is where a select group of guests were seen heading into the church for the rehearsal on Friday afternoon amid gloriously sunny weather.
Headed to the chapel: Dolores was the only recognizable face at the church, but it seems likely that the soon-to-be married couple were inside the Church for the run-through ceremony
Lucky guests: One insider projected that, given the size of the tent at the former basketball star's house, they could host up t 2,000 guests
Religious: The ceremony will be held at the Bethesda-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church
Caution: The Palm Beach Police have ordered extra patrols on hand at the church between 2pm and 6pm
The basketball star's mother Dolores Jordan was seen proudly beaming as she spoke to other guests while walking into the Church.
The religious service will be followed by a reception in the sprawling backyard of the star athlete's mansion on the grounds of the Bear's Club golf course in Jupiter, Florida.
Manpower: Crews of up to 50 staffers have been setting up both around his mansion and the church since Thursday

The home itself is said to be 37,000-square-feet, but apparently that was insufficient for the blessed event as a crew of 50 staffers spent the day on Thursday setting up three tents in the backyard.
And these aren't just any tents, as they cover the size of three football fields.
'I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve been working weddings for a while. It looks like he’s having about 2,000 people over,' and unidentified insider tells GossipExtra.
