It's (finally) official! After a five-year engagement, actress/MTV VJ LaLa Vazquez and NBA star Carmelo Anthony married in New York City Saturday night.

Adorably, their 3-year-old son, Kiyan, escorted them to the altar.

About 320 people, including pals Kim Kardashian and Ciara, were on hand to watch LaLa walk down the aisle in a Vera Wang gown, adorned with flowers.

Carmelo proposed in 2005 with an 8-carat cushion-cut diamond, but later added 2 1/2-more carats with two matching wedding bands, worth $200,000.

"They are ready to party!" Kevin Osbourne, who led the band that played during dinner, said. "A lot of soul and R&B. Michael Jackson to Stevie Wonder."

DJ Clue was also scheduled to spin.

Congratulations to Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez!

In the run-up to the big day, LaLa Vazquez joked that wedding planning was wearing her out, even though planner Mindy Weiss was handing the details.

"I'm seeing the pre-wedding stress increase... The guest list went from this to that [indicating larger]. I'm trying to control it. It's, like, over the top now!"

Glad it worked out. Congratulations to the happy couple!

Carmelo Anthony and LaLa Vazquez are still engaged. Phew.

Going on five-plus years now, he's learned a few things about engagements, such as let the bride handle most details of their wedding – except for a few.

"I just care about the food and the music, that's it," the NBA star told People, celebrating his 26th birthday with his fiancée at Philippe in W. Hollywood.

While he has yet to choose specific songs, the Denver Nuggets forward wants "some great music for dancing," and is also requesting red velvet cake.

The red is part of a grander idea: "We don't really have a theme yet," says former MTV veejay LaLa Vazquez, "but Melo is just certain that he wants red."

It seems to work well with the man ...

LaLa Vazquez and Carmelo Anthony are getting married next month.

Of course, having a wedding planner who "does everything and makes it so easy" takes the heat off LaLa. "[It's] like no pressure whatsoever," she said.

The actress has picked out a Vera Wang gown and is working out with celeb trainer Gunnar Peterson "every single day" for the nuptials, set for July 10.

What it means [is] having that one day to just be together and have a good time," she says. "I think we're fun people, so the vibe is going to be fun." 

Especially now that LaLa's hair grew back. That would have been interesting. The couple has a son, Kiyan Carmelo Anthony, born on March 7, 2007.
