Always and forever: Newlyweds Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto took their first spin around the dance floor as married couple at the Bear's Club in Jupiter, Florida Saturday
First comes the love, then comes the marriage, then comes the first dance.
Newlyweds Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto took their first spin around the dance floor as married couple at the Bear's Club in Jupiter, Florida Saturday.
The Charlotte Bobcats owner exchanged vows with the 35-year-old former model in Palm Beach, Florida, Jordan's manager Estee Portnoy said Sunday.
The wedding took place at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea with nearly 300 guests in attendance, including Tiger Woods, Patrick Ewing, Spike Lee and Ahmad Rashad.
The ceremony was followed by a reception at the luxurious private golf club designed by Jack Nicklaus. Jordan, 50, owns a home near the course.
There were fireworks at night as part of the celebration.
They did! Michael Jordan is married Yvette Prieto (seen here together in 2011) in Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday
Fully loaded: Jordan's wedding tent comes with a full array of options including a band stage, massive ballroom and dining room
Options: The wedding reception venue is 40,000 sq ft, smaller than Jordan's mansion that measures 35,000 sq ft
In lieu of wedding gifts, donations were made to the James R. Jordan Foundation. The wedding flowers were donated to the Jupiter Medical Center.
The six-time NBA champion and Prieto met five years ago and were engaged last December.
Prieto wore a French silk voile corseted sheer sheath gown by J'Aton Couture, in an ecru palette with accents of flesh tones, with handmade silk lace created especially for her, and enhanced with Swarovski crystals.

Lucky guests: One insider projected that, given the size of the tent at the former basketball star's house, they could host up to 2,000 guests
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.
The couple and their guests were entertained by DJ MC Lyte, singers K'Jon, Robin Thicke and Grammy-Award winner Usher and The Source, an 18-piece band.
Everyone enjoyed 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.
Guests sat at tables that were a continuous candle-lit landscape with a myriad of crystal candelabras and mercury glass vessels, each filled with one variety of white flower, including roses, peonies and tulips, and one accent of purple.
Vows: Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto's will say 'I Do' at the Bethesda-By-The-Sea Church, Palm Beach in Florida
I do: Jordan's beautiful bride, 35-year-old Yvette Prieto, will walk down the aisle at the Bethesda-By-The-Sea Church on late Saturday
