Anthony Davis is gearing up for another championship run, but he’s also doing big things in his personal life.
The Lakers superstar tied the knot with his longtime partner, Marlen P, and it was one of the more high-powered celebrity gatherings as people from across the entertainment spectrum came out to celebrate the event.
The who’s who of guests included Davis’ Lakers teammates LeBron James and Russell Westbrook, University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari and multiple Grammy award winning singer Adele, just to name a few.

Davis, an NBA champion and the former first overall pick in the 2012 NBA draft, wore a traditional black tuxedo with a white button-down shirt during the ceremony, and his wife wore a tight, low-cut white wedding gown.
According to reports, Davis decided to change his outfit before the reception and returned from the “locker room” wearing a black dinner suit with a similar black button-down and gray slacks.
Kentucky coach John Calipari was like a father figure to Anthony Davis when the two combined forces to win the NCAA Championship in 2012. Calipari is never one to miss a photo op and nothing changed at AD’s wedding.
Davis, 27, is embarking on a new episode in life. He’s finally settling down after nine years in the league and he’s very focused on returning to the top of the championship totem pole after falling short last year due to key injuries to his Lakers team.

The highlight of the evening had to be Anthony Davis singing Johnny Gill’s “My, My, My” to his bride. Who knew The Brow could hold a tune?

In fact, major props to this guy for having New Editions’ Ralph Tresvant in the building as well.
Davis’ wedding was an exclusive event with more of the footage still circulating. There was a lot of celebrity reaction as expected.
