The first photo of Jordan and his brand new wife Yvette after their wedding Saturday has emerged.

Via US Weekly reports:

Us Weekly got all the details on Michael Jordan’s over-the-top wedding to Yvette Prieto in Palm Beach, Fla. on Saturday, Apr. 27.

The couple of five years tied the knot at Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea, his rep confirms to Us. Over 300 guests celebrated with the newlyweds at a reception held at the Bear’s Club in Jupiter, Fla., which was planned by Sharon Sacks Productions.

In a gorgeous wedding photo, the basketball legend, 50, and the Cuban-American model, 34, have big smiles on their faces while sharing their first dance. The bride wore a French silk voile corseted J’Aton Couture gown with handmade silk lace and Swarovski crystals.
The bride and groom selected white roses, peonies and tulips with accents of purple for their floral arrangements by Mark’s Garden. After the ceremony, the flowers were donated to the Jupiter Medical Center.

Guests were treated to star-studded entertainment by Usher, Robin Thicke, K’Jon, DJ MC Lyte and the 18-piece band The Source. The couple also went all out with their cake. Edda’s Cake Designs created an all-white, seven-layer, white rum cake decorated with sugar crystals and the newlyweds’ monogram.

This is the second marriage for the former Chicago Bulls player. He was previously married to Juanita Vanoy for 17 years before they split in 2006. The former spouses share three children: sons Jeffrey Michael, 24, and Marcus James, 22, and daughter Jasmine, 19.

Sounds like quite the event. That was sweet of them to donate their flowers wasn’t it?

Here are some new details, also via US Weekly:

A source tells Us Weekly that the couple’s wedding cost an estimated $10 million.

Over 300 people attended Jordan and Prieto’s big day, including Tiger Woods, Scottie Pippen, Patrick Ewing and Spike Lee. According to the insider, Woods’ girlfriend Lindsey Vonn was invited to attend, but she was busy training in Colorado.

An insider exclusively tells Us that newlyweds shared their first dance to K’Jon’s “One the Ocean.”

“They are so in love,” the source tells Us of the couple of five years. “The warmth and the love was just overflowing. It was a wonderful day and will be a wonderful marriage!”
The reception space was decorated with crystal candelabras, candles and white roses, peonies and tulips with purple accents.

“The attention to detail was magnificent,” the source says. “The tent even smelled beautiful. I looked like the most luscious garden you could imagine. You walked into the dining room and it looked like heaven. The room was filled with thousands of candles, thousands. It was heavenly.”

Sounds like K’Jon got quite a come up.
