Amare Stoudemire And Alexis Welch Marry In Secret Rooftop Wedding

Via NYPost

Amar’e Stoudemire and his fiancée, Alexis Welch, got married in a super-private ceremony on the rooftop of his apartment yesterday. Sources say the couple was inspired by the special 12/12/12 date, and wed in front of their three children — Amar’e Jr., Ar’e and Assata — and a few other family members. “Less than seven other people were there, no Knicks teammates. It was just about them,” a source said. But this won’t be the couple’s only ceremony. “They are planning a big bash next year for friends and family to have a great time,” a source said.

Amare Wedding

The groom wore a Calvin Klein tux, and the bride and kids wore traditional ethnic outfits. Stoudemire proposed in June in Paris. The Knick dropped to one knee while on a terrace of the luxury Le Meurice Hotel, and presented Welch with a ring designed by jeweler Shayan Afshar. “I am so honored to be marrying by best friend,’’ the basketball star told us at the time. “I am so happy she said yes, and now we can continue to build our life together as husband and wife.” The couple have been dating since 2002. They planned on attending the 12/12/12 concert at MSG last night, where they could show off their new hardware. We hear Stoudemire has an Afshar wedding band, while hers is by Harry Glinberg.


L’chaim Amar’e and Alexis! Hopefully this marriage doesn’t end in dirty dog disaster, but if it does, just know we’re gonna be here to put Amar’e on BLIZZAST!!
