Report: LeBron James, fiancee set September wedding date
By Ben Golliver
LeBron James and fiancee Savannah Brinson are reportedly planning to be married in a September wedding in San Diego.
TMZ.com reports that the couple recently sent out “Save the Weekend” invitations for Sept. 13-15, 2013. The invitations include images of James, Brinson and their two sons, LeBron Jr. and Bryce, flying on an airplane towards a beach.
The NBA’s reigning MVP proposed to his longtime girlfriend on Jan. 1, 2012, at a New Year’s Eve party in South Beach. At the time, James told Oprah Winfrey that he was “nervous … like before a Finals game” when he popped the question. One estimate placed the retail value of Brinson’s engagement ring at upwards of $250,000.
James, 28, has known Brinson since high school. Since proposing, James won the 2012 Finals, won the 2012 MVP and Finals MVP awards, won a gold medal at the 2012 Olympics and was named 2012 Sports Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year. His Heat are in the midst of a franchise-record 16-game winning streak and currently boast the best record in the Eastern Conference at 37-21. James is the odds-on favorite to win 2013 MVP honors.
