Michael Jordan got married over the weekend in front of a few hundred of his family and closest friends.


The Charlotte Bobcats owner exchanged vows with 35-year-old former model Yvette Prieto on Saturday in Palm Beach, Fla., Jordanís manager Estee Portnoy told The Associated Press 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 Bearís Club in Jupiter, Fla., a 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.


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 JíAton 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.


The entertainment included DJ MC Lyte, singers KíJon, Robin Thicke and Grammy-Award winner Usher and The Source, an 18-piece band.


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 couplesí monogram on the top layer.
