NBA star Dwayne Wade and actress Gabrielle Union have officially tied the knot.
The couple said “I do” during a lavish ceremony at the Chateau Artisan Estate, which contains a private lake and resembles a castle surrounded by a moat in the Miami area on Saturday.
A source close to the couple spoke with E! News:
They were surrounded by family and friends, including the athlete’s elder two sons and nephew. The bride wore a strapless Dennis Basso ballgown with a sweetheart neckline as she walked down the aisle.
After four years of dating, Wade proposed to Union back in December 2013. Union’s engagement ring is 8.5 carats and worth nearly $1 million.
Jason Arasheben, CEO of Jason of Beverly Hills told E! News:
I made three personal visits to Miami to present different options until they found the perfect one. Dwyane picked out the stone and they made the ring custom.
Back in February when Union appeared on “The Arsenio Hall Show,” the actress revealed some shocking information:
For this marriage, the biggest difference between this and the last marriage will be a prenup. At my insistence. At my insistence! When you have your own stuff, you don’t need to worry about anyone else’s stuff. So everyone should go into the relationship knowing I’m here for you and you’re here for me, and the reality is I’ve never seen Dwyane balance a checkbook, so I gotta protect my stuff.
Fans might be surprised to learn that Dwayne was involved throughout the entire wedding process, finalizing every little detail of their wedding. Gabrielle jokingly stated that Dwayne had a few “princess moments.”
Back in March, the couple hosted an engagement party in Miami. Jamie Foxx, Kevin Hart, and Kelly Rowland were among some of the many celebrity guests invited to celebrate the couple’s special day.
Union, 41, and Wade, 32, filmed a save the date video for each of their guest, which leaked online back in early August.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
