Alex KayCorrespondent ISeptember 14, 2013

LeBron James may have celebrated winning his four MVP awards and back-to-back NBA championships in style, but the festivities surrounding the superstar’s wedding to longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson seem to blow everything else out of the water.

According to Page Six of the New York Post, James and Brinson tied the knot during a three-day affair in San Diego.

TMZ acquired the invitation to the exclusive weekend retreat, which only highlights a “Welcome Barbeque”—which took place on Friday at 7 p.m.—and a “Farewell Brunch” that is set for Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m. Guests were asked to call an exclusive number for more details in order to keep the event relatively secret.

USA Today, via the Associated Press, confirmed LeBron James' wedding and passed along a statement from Savannah Brinson:

The Miami Heat star married Savannah Brinson in San Diego on Saturday, 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. The ceremony was the highlight of a three-day celebration that will conclude with a brunch on Sunday.


Brinson spoke briefly with AP about the wedding last spring, saying she was both excited and nervous. 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."
