Many of the details for the big day were decided by the groom, Union revealed to Ellen DeGeneres this past February.

He’s very ready… Every aspect — aspects I didn’t even know went into wedding planning — he is on. To have a centerpiece or not have a centerpiece? He has very strong opinions. No centerpieces. Who cares? He does!”

We do know that John Legend sang at the wedding with his signature melody “All of Me.” There were not may pictures released from the wedding as the bride and groom made sure of and revealed a couple of pictures of their own. There were a lot of high-profile guest like athletes , colleagues, artist, actresses and actors.

This is the second marriage for Wade, who was previously married to his high school sweetheart Siohvaughn Funches from 2002 to 2007. It is also Union’s second marriage, as she was wed to NFL player Chris Howard from 2001 to 2005.

It is so nice to see black love come together no matter the break up, hard trials or busy schedule. Love in this case trumps everything and I wish them many years of love.

Shelle Knows: Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union Get Married With Some Rules And Regulations

Dwayne Wade and Gabrielle Union

Gabrielle Union and Dwayne Wade will have their wedding on Lock down. If you were invited to join the couple in their joining of holy matrimony On Saturday August 30 in South Florida. The guest will sign waivers and conform to rules and regulations when attending this wedding.

TMZ obtained a copy of the confidentiality agreement that D-Wade and Union have asked guests, vendors, caterers and anyone else attending the wedding to sign before being allowed on the premises.

There will also be no cell phones or cameras allowed, so don’t expect any live-tweeting or selfies during the ceremony. Guests have been asked to meet at an upscale hotel in South Florida to be transported to an undisclosed venue. Anyone who signs the agreement and fails to cooperate is subject to a hefty cash fine.

I understand the lengths that celebrities go through to have some privacy but I feel like if you want a private ceremony. Then just have an interment setting with a few guests. Me being a regular joe I wouldn’t mind my wedding being exploited because It’s a day of love I would be celebrating but I guess there is some things that they want to keep secret. This is nothing new as many celebrities do this. It is up to you as the guest if you will attend.

As a guest to the wedding I am sure they feel honored to be able to celebrate this wonderful day with them but who wants to be held at their will to a secret location without communication to their families. I hope there isn’t any emergencies that one may face while they are being held hostage at a wedding.

I see where they do not want the distraction of people’s actions so sometimes you have to take extreme measures to have the peaceful day that you want.

Many of you know him as former Indiana Pacer or ear blower but never thought to refer to him as a rapper. Lance Stephenson who has now signed with the Charlotte Hornets has put together a remix over the Schmurda Hott Nigga track. In the song he mentions his hard up-bringing, his dad keeping him out the streets, the pacers and new teammate Kemba.
He sounds pretty good. Take a listen.
