Carmelo Anthony and Lala Vasquez Wedding
New York, NY
July 10, 2010
NBA star Carmelo Anthony married Lala Vasquez on July 10, 2010 at Cipriani 42nd St in New York.
Among the 300 guests at the ceremony were Kim Kardashian, Serena Williams and LeBron James.
Vasquez wore a strapless organza dress by Vera Wang and walked down a red satin aisle as her friend Kelly Lattimore performed “For You.”
She clutched a bouquet of amore roses studded with crystals and rhinestones.
Anthony wore a navy blue tuxedo by Waraire Boswell.
The couple’s three-year-old son Kiyan was the ring bearer.
Anthony and Vasquez exchanged vows under a floral-encrusted canopy made of thousands of red roses, pink hydrangea and cymbidium orchids.
The twenty-minute ceremony was officiated by Dr. Michael Eric Dyson.
Following the nuptials, celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss worked with Ed Libby Events to design a red-themed reception.
Tables were decorated with hundreds of candles and red Ecuadorian roses hung from the ceiling.
For dessert, a five-tiered chocolate and red velvet wedding cake by Ron Ben-Israel was served with a 22-karat gold edible monogram of the couple’s initials.
The wedding weekend kicked off with a boat trip on Friday night along the Hudson River where guests enjoyed gambling, a cigar roller and a buffet style rehearsal dinner.
The newlyweds honeymooned in Costa Rica.
