Bron Bron’s life as a married man begins in just days!
Via Page Six reports:
Miami Heat star LeBron James is getting married this weekend in a three-day affair in San Diego, sources tell Page Six.
James will marry his longtime love Savannah Brinson in a top-secret and high-security ceremony. Speculation is that the wedding will be held at either the Grand Del Mar or Hotel Del Coronado. The pair, who have dated since high school, got engaged Dec. 31, 2011, and have two children, LeBron Jr. and Bryce.
Sources tell us James is planning a smaller wedding than what would normally be expected of an NBA All-Star’s nuptials. “He cut the list down because he didn’t want to have 1,000 people at the wedding,” said one source. It’s also likely to be smaller because it will take place during the Jewish day of atonement, Yom Kippur. But the guest list will still number in the hundreds, we’re told.
LeBron’s teammate Dwyane Wade and girlfriend Gabrielle Union, his childhood friend and longtime manager Maverick Carter, Chris Paul, Carmelo Anthony and wife La La Anthony and Heat president Pat Riley and head coach Erik Spoelstra are all expected to attend.
We hear the festivities will begin with a welcome barbecue on Friday evening before the afternoon wedding on Saturday, which will be followed by cocktails, dinner and dancing to DJs and possibly a live band.
Wedding guests will feast at a farewell brunch on Sunday, to close the weekend bash.
The extravaganza is being organized by celebrity wedding planner Preston Bailey, who also oversaw the “Lord of the Rings”-themed Big Sur, Calif., union of Sean Parker and Alexandra Lenas, which cost a reported $10 million.
Before the couple say “I do,” James, Brinson, James’ mother Gloria and several other close friends vacationed in the South of France last weekend. The group was spotted taking a boat to Cannes to have dinner at Bâoli restaurant, where they shared a large, round table in the outdoor garden.
A rep for the Heat declined to comment on King James’ wedding.
We’ve known for months now that Lebron and Savannah are expected to wed this weekend — and that the actual wedding day fell on a Jewish holiday. It seems odd that they’re touting this as some kind of “extra special” three day event when it seems like most weddings these days include some kind of rehearsal or welcome dinner and a brunch to follow the special day, riiiiiight?
