Originally written April 27, 2013 on The Other Paper:
Michael Jordan pitched a wedding tent the size of three football fields on a golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus for the former NBA star's Saturday nuptials to model Yvette Prieto.  The 40,000 sq. ft. tent will have a band stage, ballroom and dining hall to serve more than 2,000 guests. Jordan's sprawling 35,000 sq. ft. mansion was deemed to for the couple's reception so they had the massive tent pitched on the fairway. I've never seen anything like it. I've been working on weddings for a while," an unidentified guest told GossipExtra. "It looks like he's having about 2,000 people over." He is. And Jordan might be able to get in 18 holes before the fete without missing an I do. The tent and reception area are only yards away from Jordan's new mansion in Jupiter, Fla. The 50-year-old Jordan and his 35-year-old fiancee have not been seen in public since Friday but they are probably busy getting ready inside the church for the big day. Just wondering ... don't the parents of the bride usually pay for these things? Yeah ... right.
