Here comes the groom! When Dwyane Wade married Gabrielle Union in August 2014, the stunning Think Like a Man actress was not the one making a fuss about all the nitty-gritty wedding details.
“I wouldn’t use girlier… I was more into the small details,” Wade, 33, explained in an interview with Seth Meyers on Late Night on Wednesday, May 20. “Right, I was into the small details because I know my wife.”
“You gotta know who you’re marrying, right?” the NBA star continued of Union, 42. “I know my wife don’t care about the small details and I am a details guy. Plus, I was paying for the wedding! Her dad didn’t pay for it. You know the old story? Didn’t come true.”
“I wanted to make sure that we got the money’s worth, and I knew she appreciated it later,” Wade added. “I was a little over the top, but it was worth it.”
The Heat player definitely got his money’s worth, as he exchanged vows with Union in a spectacular, over-the-top ceremony in Miami. The two stars said “I do” in front of celebrity guests such as Chris Bosh, Jonathan Cheban, John Legend, and Kevin Hart, making it official at the swanky Chateau Artisan castle.
“You know how they say the wedding’s about the woman?” Wade told Meyers of his big day. “No, no, it is about both of us. I came out to my own song, had my own moment. I had three outfit changes, she had three outfit changes.”
“Secretly this is his princess moment,” Union told Ellen DeGeneres last year. “He has waited for this for a long time. He’s been hoarding bridal magazines. 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!”
