The Assist: Amaré Stoudemire marries Alexis Welch on 12/12/12 [photo]

12/12/12 was a wedding day destination for thousands of couples because of the uniqueness of the sequential numbers. Injured Knicks star Amaré Stoudemire and his new bride, Alexis Stoudemire née Welch were included among them. Before manning the phones at a Hurricane Sandy benefit concert, Amaré and Alexis took to their social networks to let the world in on their nuptials.

The uber private ceremony took place on the rooftop of their apartment in front of their three children — Amar’e Jr., Ar’e and Assata — and a few other family members per Page Six:

“Less than seven other people were there, no Knicks teammates. It was just about them,” a source said. But this won’t be the couple’s only ceremony. “They are planning a big bash next year for friends and family to have a great time,” a source said. The groom wore a Calvin Klein tux, and the bride and kids wore traditional ethnic outfits

Congratulations to the happy couple. Amaré proposed to Alexis in France while the couple was on vacation last June.
