66008: Chris Evert and Greg Norman’s Wedding

The beauty of the aptly-named Paradise Island in the Bahamas has offered an Eden-style atmosphere for the weddings of a number of notables over the years, from NFL legend Deion Sanders and Pilar Biggers in 1999 to Beverly Hills 90210 star Jason Priestley and Naomi Lowde in 2005. Both sets of celebrities said “I do” at the One & Only Ocean Club, the chosen destination for another high-profile pair– golfing great Greg Norman and tennis icon Chris Evert, who had booked the entire 200- guestroom retreat for their weekend-long celebration. However, as the couple’s combined star power proved to be a magnet for the paparazzi, the Sunday Telegraph reports that the pair slyly changed their ceremony site to the Blue Shark Golf Club, which was quickly transformed into a fairway to heaven for the bride and groom.

As the newlyweds have presumably made an agreement with a publication for exclusive coverage to the event, “I do” details are scarce. Reports indicated that the couple were united in marriage in a sunset ceremony on June 28, 2008 in the presence of a phalanx of famous faces. Reported to be among the 140 luminaries who received a wedding invitation are former president Bill Clinton, Gwen Stefani, Matt Lauer, Kenny Loggins, Corey Hart and Martina Navratilova.

UPDATE: Later reports indicate that the wedding was held at The Cloisters.
