PALM BEACH, F.L. -- Charlotte Bobcats owner Michael Jordan tied the knot with girlfriend Yvette Prieto Saturday in Florida.

Jordan proposed to Prieto at Christmas.  They have been dating for about five years after meeting at a Miami nightclub.

The couple said their vows at The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-By-The-Sea in Palm Beach.

According to published reporters, former New York Knicks Patrick Ewing and former Chicago Bulls Scottie Pippen, Ron Harper and Toni Kukoc were among the guests who attended the ceremony.

Earlier this year Jordan purchased a 12,310-square-foot lakefront home in Cornelius, for $2.8 million. (See photos of the home)

Jordan was married for 17 years to wife Juanita, but the couple divorced in 2006.  They have three children.
