Prieto wore a French silk voile corseted sheer sheath gown by J’Aton Couture, in an ecru palette with accents of flesh tones, with handmade silk lace created especially for her, and enhanced with Swarovski crystals.
The pair peered romantically into each other’s eyes as they were serenaded by non other than superstar crooner Usher Raymond.
Jordan reportedly cut a huge pay check for Raymond to perform at the sport star’s lavish reception after he tied the knot with his model girlfriend of five years in Palm Beach, Florida on Saturday (April 27, 2013).
MJ brought in Robin Thicke to serenade Prieto. Returning the favor, the bride surprised her legendary NBA superstar hubby with a set by none other than Usher.
While Usher worked the stage, he wasn’t the only superstar in the room during the star-studded West Palm Beach wedding. Attendees included: Michael’s mom, Deloris Peeples, daughter Jasmine Jordan; his ex-Bulls teammate Scottie Pippen; director Spike Lee; Ahmad Rashad; Tiger Woods, Patrick Ewing and more.
The 50-year-old basketball hero wed his 35-year-old bride in front of 500 family and friends at Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, and spared no expense on their big day.
The lavish ceremony took place at the Bethesda-By-The-Sea Episcopal Church, where over 500 invited guests witnessed the pair say ‘I do.’
Preparations for the lavish bash had been going on all week under a veil of secrecy. A source told People.com:
‘They’ve been planning for months and months. He wanted to give Yvette everything she’s ever wanted.’

A huge 40,000-square-foot tent housed the post-wedding celebration, which was held at the Bear Club, a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, in Jupiter.
The reception area was reportedly larger than Jordan’s nearby 35,000-square-foot home in the same gated golf community.
The entertainment for the reception included rapper MC Lyte and singers K’Jon, Robin Thicke and Grammy-Award winner Usher. The Source, an 18-piece band, were also hired to provide live music for the guests.
The guests were served an all-white, seven-layer white rum wedding cake that was covered in white fondant and sugar crystals, and adorned with crystal brooches and the couples’ monogram on the top layer.
During the reception they were treated to a special performance by the ‘Scream’ singer, who serenaded the happy couple with some of his biggest hits.
Michael was previously married to Juanita Jordan for 17 years. They divorced in 2006 and have three grown children.
