Michael Jordan Marries Yvette Prieto

Basketball legend Michael Jordan exchanged vows with 35-year-old former model Yvette Prieto on Saturday in Palm Beach, Florida in front of 500 guests. Guests included Tiger Woods, Spike Lee, Patrick Ewing, Scottie Pippen and Ahmad Rashad.

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. 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.

A reception followed for 2,000 guests at the Bears Club, in Jupiter adjacent to Jordan’s home. A 40,000 square foot tent was erected for the occasion. The guests were served 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. In lieu of wedding gifts, donations were made to the James R. Jordan Foundation. The wedding flowers were donated to the Jupiter Medical Center.

Michael and Yvette met five years ago and were engaged last December.
