Carmelo Anthony’s longtime off the court courtship of former MTV veejay LaLa Vazquez has led to a walk down the aisle. According to US magazine, 300 family members and friends– including Kim Kardashian, Spike Lee, Kelly Rowland and LeBron James– gathered to witness the wedding, which brought to fruition a proposal which took place on Christmas Day 2004.
Donning an “I do ” design created by Vera Wang, the bride pledged her devotion in a ceremony which included the couple’s young son Kiyan, who– as ring bearer– carried matching wedding bands from XIV Karat to his parents. The two and one-half diamond carats of the bride’s band now accompanies an eight-carat, cushion cut engagement ring.
The following photos capture the pair’s first moments together as husband and wife at New York City’s Cipriani restaurant. Fans will be able to share in the couple’s happiness when VH1 airs a special at a later date:
