Miami Heat forward and NBA MVP LeBron James is now a married man. 

James married his high school sweetheart, Savannah Brinson, in San Diego on Saturday, per the Associated Press. The ceremony marked the pinnacle of a three-day celebration which was attended by around 200 guests. 

Among the big-name attendees were James' Heat teammate Dwyane Wade and his girlfriend Gabrielle Union, the Los Angeles Clippers' Chris Paul and the New York Knicks' Carmelo Anthony. 

Others who attended were Miami Heat owner Micky Arison, head coach Eric Spoelstra and many of James' Miami teammates including forward-center Chris Bosh.  

Rapper and Roc Nation Sports founder Jay-Z performed at the cermony with his wife, Beyonce. The couple sang Beyonce's hit "Crazy in Love." 

The ceremony began at 4:30 p.m. at the Grande del Mar resort. The bride and the groom spoke with the Associated Press a few months before the wedding. Brinson confirmed feelings of excitement and anxiety while James wanted to make sure "that Savannah gets whatever she wants on her day, the wedding day she always dreamed of."  

James, 28, and Brinson, 27, have two sons -- LeBron, Jr., 8 and Bryce, 5. The former proposed on January 1, 2012 in Miami Beach. The reigning MVP and two-time NBA champion admitted he was nervous before the proposal.

He said,"It felt like a Finals game."  

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. LeBron James.
