The pinnacle of Michael Jordan and Yvette Prieto’s love story was reached in April 2013, when they exchanged vows in a luxury ceremony held in Florida. Ahead of their nuptials, Jordan gifted Prieto a $1 million diamond engagement ring fit for a queen — but this was no match for what was to come. Their wedding was held at The Church of Bethesda-By-The Sea, a sprawling gothic church in Palm Beach. Former president Donald Trump and his wife Melania Trump were also married at the property in 2005.
Jordan and Prieto’s wedding was nothing short of a spectacle, and it is rumored to have cost over $10 million to pull off (per Essentially Sports). Prieto opted to wear a J’Aton Couture gown on her wedding day, which was covered in Swarovski crystals. Among their star-studded guest list of over 2,000 attendees were notable figures like professional golfer Tiger Woods, Usher, and Robin Thicke. Their reception party was so large that their 40,000 square-foot tent was named the largest in wedding history (per HuffPost).
This takes a giant turn from Jordan’s first marriage to Juanita Vanoy, which was an intimate ceremony held at the Little White Chapel in Las Vegas (via Heavy). Instead of traditional wedding gifts, Jordan and Prieto encouraged donations to the James R. Jordan Foundation. The couple also donated their wedding flowers to the Jupiter Medical Center in Florida (per Hello!).
