The long-anticipated spor-lebrity nuptials involving Dwyane Wade of the Miami Heat and actress Gabrielle Union took place and was, as these things go, a rather low-key affair.

Low-key for a wedding that reportedly cost $5 million, that is. The two were married at Saturday at the Chateau Artisan, a castle-like place in Miami in front of a small crowd of family and friends, according to There are precious few details and ever fewer photos so far, but reports that Union wore a Dennis Basso gown and Wade wore a white suit by Dsquared2 and his own Wedding Collection bowtie from The Tie Bar. John Legend performed and the reception’s theme was a 1939s juke joint.

The official wine was Vanilla Puddin’ Chardonnay.

Union posted several rehearsal dinner photos on Instagram and wrote: “Happy… Got my Luther playin… There’s a #BeingMaryJane marathon on #BET, my #nebraska #huskers play today… All my loved ones are in town… Today is a good day… I must say I’m feeling blessed and humbled and just freakin happy… Let’s go!!! #thewadeunion”

Wade proposed last December, with help from his sons and nephew. Even their “save the date” video was special.

After spending most of her career in traditional print sports journalism, Cindy began blogging and tweeting, first as NFL/Redskins editor, and, since August 2010, at The Early Lead. She also is the social media editor for Sports.
