Miami Heat forward LeBron James, 28, tied the knot with his high school sweetheart Savannah Brinson, 27, Saturday in a lavish ceremony at the Grand Del Mar Hotel in San Diego. The two have been dating for 12 years and have two children together, LeBron Jr., 8, and Bryce, 5.
Hundreds of guests were on hand for the nuptials, including Jay Z and Beyonce, who performed “Crazy in Love” at the after party, according to TMZ. James’ teammates Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade and his girlfriend, actress Gabrielle Union were also in attendance.
James proposed to Brinson over New Year’s Eve in 2011 and the couple’s three-day affair, which included a welcome barbecue, the wedding and a farewell brunch, was coordinated by celebrity party planner Preston Bailey.
Also tying the knot over the weekend was R&B crooner John Legend, 34, and model Chrissy Teigen, 27.
The two were wed in a romantic ceremony in Lake Como, Italy, in front of 125 guests - among them Kanye West, Quincy Jones and Stevie Wonder.
Following the ceremony, Legend serenaded his new bride with an emotional rendition of “All of Me” and Wonder performed “Ribbon in the Sky.”
