Dwyane Wade, Gabrielle Union wed in Miami

Dwyane Wade lost Heat teammate LeBron James to Cleveland back in July.

But the summer wasn’t a total loss for the former Finals MVP — he wed longtime girlfriend Gabrielle Union Saturday night in Miami.

Wade, 32, proposed to Union in December. They had been dating for four years, according to E! Online.

Union posted a photo of her new family on Instagram:


The 41-year-old actress has been a fixture at Miami Heat games since the couple made it official.

The couple married at the Chateau Artisan castle. The mansion, which is surrounded by a moat, is nearly 20,000 square feet and surrounded by fountains, gazebos, wildlife and scores of trees and shrubbery.

Union’s dress was a custom-designed gown by by Dennis Basso:

Wade signed a new two-year contract to stay with the Heat less than a week after James bolted for Cleveland.  The New York Times has an in-depth feature on how Wade prepared for his big day.
