Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have picked the perfect spot for a fairytale wedding!
The happy couple will be exchanging vows at Chateau Artisan in Miami this weekend, according to TMZ.com! Despite G.Wade’s ban on all social media and guest chatter about their big day, someone was still able to leak some juicy information.
Chateau Artisan is a sprawling 19,000 square foot castle surrounded by a moat! And the whole thing is sitting on 14 acres of land. All that water should help them keep the location secure.
Workers have been on the property all week making sure the castle is perfect for the wedding. There haven’t been any pictures of the location from the past few days, but you might recognize it from Birdman’s video for “Fire Flame”!
Guests are not allowed to bring cameras to the wedding, and they’ve even had to sign confidentiality agreements. That hasn’t kept a few folks from snapping some shots if last night’s festivities.
Gabrielle and D.Wade may have given into the reality that their wedding weekend will be shared because they have started using the #TheWadeUnion in their posts on Instagram.

Gabrielle and Dwyane shelled out a huge chunk of change for their Miami nuptials this weekend!
Castle do not come cheap! According to E! News, the Wades spent a whopping $5 million on their Old Florida Juke Joint-themed festivities.
The celebration was housed at the Chateau Artisan, a castle about 45 minutes outside of Florida. When guests arrived by bus on Saturday afternoon, they sat on transparent “ghost chairs” that designed to blend into the scenery so that the nothing distracted the eye from the view of castle. Every seat was supplied with a pair of opera glasses so that guests could witness Gabby and D.Wade’s union a little easier.
The nuptials were officiated by the bride’s closest friend, Essence Atkins of “One On One”!
Once the vows were exchanged, everyone headed over to a huge tent set up on the 14-acre estate that was furnished with four 72-inch screens and custom-made chairs crafted with black crocodile skin. Reportedly, there were also live chickens at the event!
The happy couple, who got to lounge in their own thrones, partied with their guests for hours. To honor the groom, there were a few references to the Miami Heat at the reception.
