Michael Jordan got married over the weekend in front of a few hundred of his family and friends.

The Charlotte Bobcats owner exchanged vows with 35-year-old former model Yvette Prieto Saturday in Palm Beach, Fla.

Jordan's manager Estee Portnoy told The Associated Press Sunday the ceremony was held at the Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea.

A reception was held at the Bear's Club in Jupiter, Fla., a luxurious private golf club designed by Jack Nicklaus. Jordan, 50, owns a home near the course.

Nearly 300 guests attended, including Tiger Woods, Patrick Ewing and Ahmad Rashad.

Jordan and Prieto met five years ago and were engaged last December.

In lieu of wedding gifts, donations were made to the James R. Jordan Foundation. The wedding flowers were donated to the Jupiter Medical Center.
