Basketball great and NBA owner, Michael Jordan, 50, wed his finance Yvette Prieto, 35, in a lavish ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday. 

Nearly 500 guests attended the lavish nuptials, including Usher and numerous NBA stars like Patrick Ewing.  The couple took their vows at the Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church and partied until the wee hours at Jordan’s estate in Jupiter’s Bear Club for the wedding reception.

The Cuban-American beauty had been linked to Julio Iglesisas Jr. before her relationship with Michael Jordan started.  Prieto had modeled in local Miami commercials and swimsuit calendars.

Jordan was married to Juanita Vanoy Jordan for 17-years and the couple have three now-adult children together.  The 2006 divorce cost Jordan $168 million who reportedly asked Prieto to sign a pre-nup to protect his estimated $500 million fortune.

The couple announced their engagement back in December of 2011 after being together for three years.  Last month Jordan enjoyed a four-day bachelor party in the Dominican Republic at the Casa de Campo resort.
