Lebron James added another ring to his collection when he became a married man this past Saturday.
The Miami Heat forward wed his high school sweetheart of 12 years, Savannah Brinson at the deluxe Grand Del Mar Hotel, just 25 minutes north of downtown San Diego.
Though we wondered why Lebron chose San Diego for his nuptials instead of Miami or his Akron, Ohio hometown, it's easy to see why the Grand Del Mar was selected to host the star-studded affair, which included guests Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and his girlfriend, Gabrielle Union.
Calling itself “San Diego’s premier wedding venue”, the Grand Del Mar looks like a sprawling Mediterranean estate and its picturesque setting in the Los Peñasquitos Canyon makes for a serene scene.
But we're hearing that another couple arrived at the wedding and took the event to a whole 'nother level!
Read about it after the jump!

Lebron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh and the rest of the Miami Heat team finally captured the NBA Championship last night over the Oklahoma City
Zombie Sonics Thunder in Miami and once the celebrations moved out of the American Airlines Arena, the ballers took their partying to the LIV nightclub at The Fontainebleau, arguably the hottest nightclub in Miami depsite having been open for a few years now.
And here's exactly how they spent their night up in the club:
LeBron James with fiancé Savannah Brinson were greeted at the luxurious resort around 3AM to club goers chanting MVP as bottles of Ace of Spades Champagne arrived. Teammates Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh along with their significant others Gabrielle Union and Adrienne Bosh arrived with Heat owner Micky Arison to the sounds of DJ IRIE spinning at the party.
Wade revealed to the crowed his new Twitter hash tag , #LMT stands for "Love my Team" just as James grabbed the mic and took the LIV stage rapping to Jay-Z and Kanye West's "Ball So Hard," DJ Khaled's "All I Do is Win" and the obvious, Queen's "We Are the Champions." In a final surprise moment, electropop duo LMFAO took the stage to perform for the winning team and the still raucous crowd at 4:50AM.
It's been a wild and wacky first week of 2012 for celebrities staying at hotels. While we've chronicled some of the outlandish escapades, there's still a ton more we think you would enjoy reading about. Happy Friday!
· The Shelborne South Beach Lets Lebron James Eat Cake, Whatever Cake He Likes: Apparently, a Boca Raton baker's $3,000 cake that she whipped up for Miami Heat player, Lebron James, for his New Year's Eve party at the Shelborne Hotel was just not good enough. Even though the hotel, which just unveiled pretty new rooms, promised the baker publicity in exchange for free cake, once Lebron got a look at the thing, he demanded a different one. Sigh. Is there a hastag for Rich People Party Problems?
· Sofia Vergara Brings Lusty Nurse Fantasties to Life at The Bellagio: The Modern Family stunner was leaving the new Hyde Club at The Bellagio in Las Vegas at 3am when a young woman collapsed near her. Sofia ran to the woman, checked her pulse and remained by her side until real paramedics came. We wouldn't be surprised if people started passing out near Sofia more often.

Maybe the LIV nightclub at The Fontainebleau should reconsider their $40 valet parking charge. How else to explain why Lebron James' mom Gloria went crazy on a parking attendant, resulting in her arrest for misdemeanor assault?
NBC Miami got their hands on the police report which said that the valet left her car running for 30 minutes while she talked with friends. When it became clear she wasn't getting in the car anytime soon, the valet turned off the SUV and returned the keys to the valet cashier. That's when Gloria unleashed her fury.
It's only fitting that with LeBron James in town, Miami sets itself the task of polishing up its nightlife. And the King himself was in the house for the grand opening of Arkadia, the new lounge at the Fontainebleau.
The brand new "ultra-lounge and pool experience" (we'll get to the pool in a sec) had a private opening party about a week ago, where A-Rod, Edward Norton & Elle Macpherson all joined James to get the bottle service rollin'. Now, Arkadia has officially opened to the public this past weekend.
Last summer when we checked into the W South Beach we made a mental note to check out the hotel's rooftop basketball court. Then promptly forgot. But, hey, this was long before you know who started banging on about bringing his talents to South Beach--and booking up a string of cabanas at the W.
Now LeBron is the king of Miami, however, we've thinking it's time to check out that court. And we've learned that the best way to do that--and kick it high-roller style, of course--is to book a Mega Suite, a two-level pad that opens directly onto the basketball court.
It all started with the cabana blowout at the W South Beach. Now, the waiting list for Miami Heat season tickets is jammed and every business in town is King-ing up their product in order to cash in on the city's newest resident, LeBron James.
Hotels are—of course—chief among them. Here are Five Heat-Crazy Hotel Packages and Promos For People Who Love LeBron.

Miami hotels are rolling out the red carpet for the new "king", Lebron James, despite the fact that he is the most hated player in the NBA right now and definitely the most hated man in Cleveland. The latest hotel to bow down is now the Hotel Victor. Fortunately, this hotel's new found servitude to Lebron just might benefit you.
The hotel is throwing a Facebook contest to celebrate not just Lebron but also Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh coming to town to play for the Miami Heat. The winner of the contest will get one night in the hotel's Penthouse Suite for just $163. (That's the jersey numbers of the "Three Kings"--Bosh is #1, Lebron is #6 and Wade is #3.)
You can enter the contest here and the winner is selected at random after the hotel's page reaches 1,000 fans.

It's hot right now in Miami but the heat doesn't seem to bother this person.
If you hadn't heard, LeBron James is holding a silly press conference on ESPN tonight about his basketball future but while sports analysts furiously sound off on TV and online about where the NBA star ends up (the Knicks, Heat and Nets are all contenders), they may have been scooped by Us Magazine.
The tabloid rag reports that LeBron has booked six cabanas at the W South Beach this weekend to celebrate his decision. The now most important source for sporting news reports:
That adds more fuel to the fire that James, 25, will announce he's joining the Miami Heat Thursday night, as several insiders told ESPN this morning. (He's still confirmed to attend NBA star Carmelo Anthony's Saturday-night wedding to former MTV VJ LaLa Vazquez in NYC.)
