It is becoming difficult for celebrities to do anything in private thanks to social media and civilians playing paparazzi. With this in mind, actress Gabrielle Union and her now baller hubby Dwyane Wade made sure guests at their wedding this weekend were sworn to secrecy regarding their nuptials.
Last week, there were rumors that suggested that the two would get married this weekend, but no confirmation. Actress Essence Atkins added to the wedding buzz by confirming that she would be officiating the couple’s wedding.
But that was it. There were no other leaked details about Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade’s wedding, and there’s a reason for that.
According to reports, the guests and the wedding planners had to promise that they would keep their lips sealed regarding wedding details. To ensure this, they were asked to sign confidentiality agreements and were told not to bring any cameras or phones.
The couple reportedly exchanged vows in front of their guests in a Miami setting described as intimate, which usually means just a selected few were allowed to attend.
Gabrielle Union hinted that she would not be overdoing it with her guest list when she appeared on The Arsenio Hall Show earlier this year. When asked about her guest list, the actress said, “There are a lot of people who think they are coming, and they are not… If you’re not about us and we don’t both have a relationship with you, you’re not coming.” She also mentioned that she would not have any bridesmaids.
Their intimate wedding came with a hefty price tag. The wedding weekend reportedly cost $5 million.
This is the second marriage for both Gabrielle and Dwyane.
