How exciting! Oklahoma City Thunder’s Russell Westbrook and his girlfriend of two years, Nina Earl, married in an outdoor ceremony on Aug. 29. Congrats to the happy couple!
Love is in the air! Russell Westbrook, 26, is now a very happily married man. On Saturday, Aug. 29, the Oklahoma City Thunder point guard and his girlfriend, Nina Earl, wed in Beverly Hills, Calif. Get all the details on their romantic nuptials!
The couple said “I do” in front of family and friends at the Beverly Hills Hotel, PEOPLE reports. Several of Russell’s basketball pals were in attendance, including Kevin Durant, Kevin Love, Serge Ibaka, Dorrell Wright and James Harden. James brought Khloe Kardashian as his date!
The newlyweds walked out of the wedding to a Beyonce song, which is everything. Russell and Nina shared their first dance as a married couple to Lauryn Hill and D’Angelo’s “Nothing Even Matters.” Singer Keri Hilson attended the wedding, and Grammy winner Miguel performed at around 11 p.m. What a night!
Nina wore two dresses for her big day. The first was a Vera Wang gown, following by a Monique Lhullier dress. Russell wore a tuxedo by Tom Ford.
Their gorgeous wedding came just under one year after Russell and Nina confirmed their engagement in Sept. 2014. They had been dating for about a year prior to that, reports TMZ. They met while playing for the men’s and women’s basketball teams at UCLA. Aw! They’re college sweethearts! Now that they are married, they have plenty of time to honeymoon before the NBA season starts up again in late Oct. 2015!
Once again, congratulations to Nina and Russell. We are so happy for you both as you start this new journey as a happily married couple!
