NBA legend Michael Jordan is ready to walk down the aisle with Yvette Prieto.

The happy couple is scheduled to get married before 500 people at 4 p.m. Saturday (April 27) at Bethesda-by-The-Sea Episcopal Church in Palm Beach, Florida. It is the same church that Donald Trump married Melania Knauss in 2005.

Gossip Extra reports a private security firm based in California requested six off-duty police officers to handle traffic and crowd control around the church between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.

“It’s basically the same organization as for the Trump wedding,” Silvestri told Gossip Extra. “We’re being asked to assist with security. We’ll be helping check in the guests and make sure everyone has an invitation.

Silvestri added, “We’ll keep traffic moving, too. And we’re having barricades across the street from the church for members of the public and the media.”

The reception and banquet are scheduled to take place at Jordan’s house in The Bears Club in Jupiter. Tents the size of two football fields were being erected Thursday night.

A source told Gossip Extra, “Three tents are being put up in his backyard, over the surface of two football fields. I calculated a total under-roof space of about 600 feet long by 150 feet wide. I’ve never seen anything like it. I’ve been working weddings for a while. It looks like he’s having about 2,000 people over.”

This is the first marriage for Prieto, 35, and the second for Jordan who was married to Juanita Vanoy from 1989 until they officially divorced in 2006.
