Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union tie the knot

Unlike her “Being Mary Jane” character, actress Gabrielle Union has found her happy ending. She and Miami Heat shooting guard Dwyane Wade tied the knot Aug. 30 in Miami. The couple, who dated for five years, exchanged vows at the elegant Chateau Artisan castle, which sits on 14 acres of land and is protected by a moat. The theme was black and white.
The star-studded guest list included comedian Kevin Hart, Wade’s teammate Chris Bosh, filmmaker Will Packer and actor Terrence J. People reported that John Legend serenaded the couple during the nuptials before guests were treated to a 1930s-era juke joint reception.
Union, 41, was chic in a custom strapless, body-hugging Dennis Basso gown, hand-beaded in crystals and pearls. Wade, 32, wore a customized Dsquared 2 suit and a bow-tie he designed himself.
The two announced their engagement in December 2013, just days before Wade revealed that he had fathered a child, Xavier, with another woman during a break in his relationship with Union.
This is the second marriage for both. Union was married to NFL player Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006, and Wade was married to high school girlfriend Siohvaughn Funches from 2001 to 2010. That union produced two children, Zion and Zaire.
