Michael Jordan married model Yvette Prieto in Florida Saturday.
Ex-Knicks center Patrick Ewing and Jordan’s former Chicago Bulls teammate Scottie Pippen were among the 500 guests who watched His Airness tie the knot inside Bethesda-by-the Sea, an Episcopal church in Palm Beach, according to People magazine.
A reception for 2,000 guests was held afterward at the Bears Club, a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course in Jupiter, Fla.
“They’ve been planning for months and months,” a source told People. “He wanted to give Yvette everything she’s ever wanted.”

Prieto, a 35-year-old former model, met the Charlotte Bobcats owner at a Miami nightclub in 2008. They got engaged around Christmas 2011.
The couple applied for a wedding license last month in Palm Beach County, People said.
