LeBron James married longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson over the weekend. By all indications, the couple did a tremendous job of keeping their special day under wraps and avoiding invasions of privacy. Very few pictures have surfaced, but we have learned some fun details about the three-day event. One of them involves a transportation mishap that Dwyane Wade had to deal with on Friday.
LeBron and Savannah’s wedding weekend was a three-day bash began with a “welcome barbecue” on Friday that Wade and his girlfriend Gabrielle Union nearly missed because of a flat tire. D-Wade posted the video you see above on Instagram in addition to the following photo, which was captioned with the hashtag “#wemakenotmakethewedding.”
They ended up making it — we think. It would have been tough to tell anyway, since the Miami Herald has informed us that guests used umbrellas to shield their identities from helicopters that were flying above the Grand Del Mar Hotel in San Diego looking to snap photos. The ceremony only included about 200 guests, so it was very small by celebrity standards.
While the guest list may have been modest, one of the live performances was not. Jay-Z and Beyonce, who flew in on Saturday between her scheduled Friday and Sunday performances in Brazil, reportedly performed their 2003 hit “Crazy in Love” at the reception. Other celebrities and athletes on the guest list included Ne-Yo, Drake, Carmelo Anthony and Chris Paul, though it is not clear exactly who attended.
Many athletes have gotten married over the summer and plenty of pictures usually surface after their big day. LeBron clearly went into this thing prepared.Google+
