Long time Miami Heat forward, Udonis Haslem, took the plunge with his long time girlfriend, and college sweetheart, Faith Rein, at the end of August.
The two had been together for 14 years, and endured many hardships including unplanned pregnancy, long-distance, and a rocky start to Haslem’s pro career, with many of these details revealed in a heartfelt piece by the New York Times.
Besides their personal struggles, one piece of information from the ceremony that stands out is that after they gave their “I dos” and exchanged several kisses, the newlyweds walked down the aisle to Tupac’s “2 of Amerkaz Most Wanted.”
Carrying a bouquet of garden roses and white hydrangeas, the bride wowed the crowd in a strapless lace mermaid-style Vera Wang gown. After she and Mr. Haslem kissed four times as man and wife, they walked along a rose-strewn path to the strains of Tupac Shakur’s “2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted.”
The guests made some noise, as if the Heat had just won another basketball game.
Guests included LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Erik Spolestra, Pat Riley, and even Florida recording artist, and courtside Heat ticket holder, Flo Rida. You can see Instagram posts featuring the notable attendees below, which includes a bearded Pat Riley.
