Actress Gabrielle Union married longtime partner and Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade at sunset on Saturday, E! News reports.

The private couple wed in the Miami area at the Chateau Artisan estate, which looks like a huge castle surrounded by a moat so as to keep out journalists and other riff raff.

For her big day, the bride chose a strapless Dennis Basso ballgown with a sweetheart neckline, the groom a Dsquared2 Tuxedo, whatever that is.

“Secretly this is his princess moment,” Union told Ellen Degeneres of her hubby’s wedding planning. “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!”

The couple forbid anyone from bringing cellphones so they could control — and perhaps cash in on — the release of their wedding photos.

This is the second marriage for both parties. Union was chained to NFL player Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006, officially making her a jersey chaser. And in 2002, Wade wed his high school sweetheart, Siohvaughn Funches, with whom he has two kids.
