People.com reports that Michael Jordan has finally tied the knot with Yvette Prieto after applying for a marriage license in March.

Jordan, 50, and Prieto, 35, were married in Palm Beach, Fla., at the Bethesda-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church. Radaronline reports that about 2,000 guests attended the service - with singer Usher performing - and 1,500 attended a reception at the Bears Club, a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course in jupiter where Jordan has built a 38,000-square-foot home.

A source told People:

"They've been planning for months and months," says a source of the nuptials. "He wanted to give Yvette everything she's ever wanted."

Jordan and Prieto were engaged in 2011 and had dated since 2008 since meeting in a Miami club. Michael Jordan divorced his first wife, Juanita, in 2006 after 17 years of marriage and three children.
