LeBron weds girlfriend in San Diego-A A +A
Sunday, September 15, 2013
SAN DIEGO -- Miami Heat star LeBron James married Savannah Brinson in San Diego on Saturday (Sunday, Philippine time), according to two people familiar with the details of the ceremony.
About 200 guests were present for the ceremony, said one of the people, both of whom spoke on condition of anonymity because the hotel wedding was private and the couple had yet to release any details.
Intense security measures surrounded the wedding that came less than three months after Heat won their second straight National Basketball Association (NBA) title.
Guests were ushered into the wedding areas under the cover of tents. Television footage taken by news helicopters showed that umbrellas were used to protect the identity of those arriving.
Heat owner Micky Arison, coach Erik Spoelstra and many of James' teammates, including Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, were on the guest list.
Wade and his actress girlfriend Gabrielle Union also tweeted that they were in San Diego for a wedding.
However they didn't mention further details as it was believed that the wedding has a "no phone" policy.
The ceremony was the highlight of a three-day celebration that will conclude with a brunch on Sunday.
The basketball star proposed after midnight on January 1, 2012 in Miami Beach.
James, 28, and Brinson, 27, have been together since high school and have two sons.
Earlier, Brinson spoke briefly about the wedding, saying she was both excited and nervous.
Meanwhile, James has only discussed the wedding in general terms, once describing his role as only to ensure "that Savannah gets whatever she wants on her day, the wedding day she always dreamed of." (AP)
