Last month, Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade tied the knot during their highly anticipated wedding ceremony in Miami. The high-profile couple has since decided to share photos from their “epic” honeymoon with fans and social media followers. During their vacation, the lovebirds ventured to Tanzania and the Maldive Islands.

“When the Indian Ocean is ya swimming pool… You dive in! But first… Play that @beyonce baby,” Gabbby bragged in one post.

“Since I’m on my honeymoon and I’m missing fashion week in NY. I thought i would show you guys how I dress to go on a safari. It’s never a dull moment when @lawfullady is your stylist. #dopeselfie #manimfeelingmyself #imbestdressonthissafari #illmarrymetoo @zmalannewyork,” Dwyane wrote in another.

They look like they had a blast.

Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union went out of their way to keep #theWadeUnion a secret. But we’ve managed to sleuth out a few exciting facts about their big Labor Day event. And you’ll be surprised by what we found out.

Dwyane Wade Was In Charge of the Planning

Gabrielle Union told the New York Times, “He realized that I was trying to turn it into a frat party with K-cups and beer pong, and he took over.” So Dwyane took over “85%” of the planning to give the wedding a classier vibe: “I was thinking ‘Harlem Nights’ and Eddie Murphy, classic movies and the way they dressed.”

“#TheWadeUnion”: Dwyane Wade & Gabrielle Union Share Exclusive Pics From Their Wedding Day

How cute are the Wades!?

We told you that Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union tied the knot this past Saturday, and now they’ve decided to share a new image from their big day with their fans. On both of their Instagram accounts, the couple posted a beautiful image of themselves with Wade’s sons, Zaire and Zion (infant Xavier wasn’t in this photo, nor is it clear if he was at the ceremony), as well as Wade’s nephew Dahveon Morris. The two captioned the image with “#TheWadeUnion,” a hashtag they used throughout their big weekend.

Union also shared a beautiful shot of herself in her custom Dennis Basso gown and had this to say about her big exclusive gown:

 

“Thank you thank you thank you @DennisBasso for helping me design THE most perfect gowns for the most special night of my life… So grateful… So happy “

Again, the couple tied the knot in front of family and friends in Miami, as men were instructed to wear black, and the women invited were asked to match the bride in white. Wade proposed back in December, and this is the second marriage for both. Wade was married to Siohvaughn Funches from 2002 to 2010, and Union was married to NFL player Chris Howard from 2001 to 2006. Congrats!

#Random: Essence Atkins To Officiate Bestie Gabrielle Union’s Wedding This Weekend

Earlier today, we told you that Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade reportedly went as far as to have their wedding guests sign confidentiality agreements to keep details about the ceremony from leaking to the media. But it looks like Gabby’s bestie, Essence Atkins, never received the hush-hush memo.

Hip Hollywood recently caught up with the “Haunted House 2″ actress, who revealed that she and her husband, Jaime Mendez, will be officiating the couple’s ceremony this weekend.

“I’m not feeling a way about [Gabby not having bridesmaids] because I’m officiating the ceremony,” Essence revealed.

“My husband and I are officiating the ceremony,” she continued. “My husband did a ceremony for Alfonso Ribeiro a couple of years ago and they asked us to do it together so we are officiating.”

The wife and mother went on to say that Gabby’s ceremony will actually be her first time officiating a wedding

“This will be my first time. No pressure! No pressure whatsoever!”

While I have to admit that this news is extremely random, having your bestie officiate your wedding ceremony sounds like it has the potential to be pretty cool. I also can’t blame Gabby for wanting someone who knows her personally to officiate, considering that the reverend at her last ceremony didn’t even pronounce her name correctly.

“The pastor who married me—the first time—he didn’t even get my name right,” Gabrielle told Arsenio Hall back in February. “Yeah, no. He refused to come to the rehearsal dinner and then didn’t say my name correctly. I even pronounced my own name incorrectly so this should’ve been a sign that it wasn’t gonna work.”

Watch Essence’s interview below. Thoughts?

Doing The Most: Gabrielle Union & D. Wade’s Wedding Guests To Sign Confidentiality Agreement

Last month, we told you that Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade had quite a few rules in place for friends and relatives lucky enough to make the cut for their August 30 wedding ceremony.

“To our family and friends,

We are looking forward to sharing this very special day with you. For the comfort of our guests and to protect our privacy, no cameras or cell phones will be permitted at the party. Also, photo IDs will be required for all guests. Gentlemen, formal attire in black; ladies, we would love to see you in formal white.
Transportation to and from the party venue will be provided from the [redacted]. Buses will depart promptly at 9:45pm from the North-North entrance of the hotel; please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to departure to process through security. If you choose to drive yourself, please call [number omitted] hours prior to the event at [address omitted] for directions to the venue (located approximately 45 to 50 minutes south of South Beach). Once on-site, you should allow at least 30 minutes to process through security at the venue.
We thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation. See you soon!

Love, Gab and Dwyane”

Now, it appears that the bride-and-groom-to-be have taken things a step further to protect their privacy as well as the privacy of their A-list guests. According to TMZ, the pair will also be handing out confidentiality agreements, which must be signed by all relatives, friends, vendors and caterers or they will not be allowed to enter the venue. Gabby and Dwyane appear to be dead serious about the agreement too. If reports are correct, then there will be a hefty financial penalty imposed upon anyone who runs their mouths after signing the agreement.

I understand Gabrielle and Dwyane wanting to protect their privacy and not wanting their ceremony to be a media circus, but good Lord.

 

Dwyane Wade’s Marital Home Once Shared With Ex-Wife, Siohvaughn, Facing Foreclosure

His wedding is just days away, but somehow, Dwyane Wade and his ex-wife, Siohvaughn Wade, are still making headlines together.

According to TMZ Sports, the marital home once shared by the former couple and their children is facing foreclosure. Apparently, a payment has not been made on the $225,000 home for quite some time now. Siohvaughn still lives in the home and Dwyane’s people are saying that she received the home (and responsibility for the mortgage payments) in the divorce settlement. However, Siohvaughn eventually stopped making those payments, which is why the home is now facing foreclosure.

It’s probably only a matter of time before Siohvaughn comes forward demanding money from Dwyane to catch up on payments, but the Miami Heat star’s attorney argues that he is in no way responsible for the home. The bank sent a foreclosure notice regarding the South Holland home on Aug. 11

The countdown is on. Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade are scheduled to tie the knot in less than a month. Although the Hollywood duo were careful to keep their guest list limited to trusted friends and relatives, details about the ceremony continue to be leaked to the media. First, it was their adorable save the date cards. Then, it was the actual invitation complete with a list of dos and dont’s for wedding guests. Now, TMZ  has obtained Gabby and Dwyane’s save the date video, which includes footage of the Miami Heat star’s proposal.

“This is Gabrielle. This is Dwyane…and this is how he proposed,” the video says before cutting to footage of Dwyane’s proposal, which included the help of his sons and nephew.

The 47-second video goes on to include other information included in typical save the date cards including the wedding date and location. Considering the fact that Gabby and Dwyane aren’t even allowing guests to bring cell phones or cameras into the party, we’re wondering how they’re feeling about their invites and such being leaked to the media.

Gabrielle Union has already expressed that many of the people sitting around expecting to receive an invitation to her wedding to Dwyane Wade probably won’t be getting one. At this point, those close to the couple are probably already aware of who’s in and who’s out. Recently, those lucky enough to make the cut were made hip to the rules of the engagement when they received their official wedding invites. It appears that Gabby and Dwyane are running a pretty tight ship.

The invitation was accompanied by a letter from the couple, revealing what will not be allowed at the ceremony in order to protect their privacy. Ironically, the letter and the invite were both leaked to TMZ. The note reads:

To our family and friends,

We are looking forward to sharing this very special day with you. For the comfort of our guests and to protect our privacy, no cameras or cell phones will be permitted at the party. Also, photo IDs will be required for all guests. Gentlemen, formal attire in black; ladies, we would love to see you in formal white.

Siohvaughn Goes After Team D. Wade With Another Lawsuit

June 19th, 2014 - By Jazmine Denise Rogers

Siohvaughn Funches-Wade loves a good lawsuit. In the past, she has filed suits against her ex-husband, Dwyane Wade, and his soon-to-be-wife, actress Gabrielle Union. Now, she’s suing Dwyane’s divorce attorney James Pritikin and the Dolton Police Department.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Siohvaughn is accusing Dwyane and his attorney of framing her for child abduction. Siohvaughn, who lost a lengthy child custody battle against Dwyane, says in the lawsuit that she was “violently attacked” by Dolton Police Officers in June 2012 at her home.

She goes on to allege that James, Dwyane, Dolton Police and Dwyane’s friend New Lenox Mayor Tim Baldermann “conspired” to have her arrested for child abduction after she failed to turn the kids over to Dwyane following being instructed to do so by a judge. The child abduction charges against Siohvaughn were eventually dropped; however, Pritkin used the incident to argue that Dwyane should be granted full custody of the former couple’s two sons.

Siohvaughn is representing herself in the case and says that during the arrest , she suffered an asthma attack, panic attack and a torn rotator cuff due to the rough nature that the officers handled her. She is seeking unspecified damages in excess of $50,000. As you may recall, Siohvaughn also filed a suit against Dwyane last December in which she accused him of being physically abusive to her.
