Ray Allen Marries Girlfriend & Trophy

Boston Globe

Ray Allen and longtime girlfriend Shannon Walker Williams finally made it official, tying the knot in an intimate ceremony on Martha's Vineyard over the weekend. Guests at the wedding, which was held under sunny skies at a private home in Oak Bluffs, included the couple's three children Tierra, Ray III, and Walker, fellow UConn alums Scott Burrell and 76er Kevin Ollie, Celts CEO Wyc Grousbeck and wife Corinne, and, of course, the NBA Championship trophy. Allen's friend Brian McKnight sang "Never Felt This Way" as the basketball star and his bride made their entrance. Later, McKnight wowed the crowd with renditions of his hits "Crazy Love" and "Back at One." Williams, a onetime actress who appeared in "Girlfight" and "Century City," wore gown by Melissa Sweet. The 60 or so guests were well fed by chef Ben deForest, whose restaurant Balance catered the affair.

Yes, the trophy was there. I'm guessing Ray let his woman have all the flowers, champagne and guests she wanted as long as the championship trophy had a seat. Welcome to club, Ray. Make it easy on yourself and hand her your balls now. For anyone who cares, more pictures after the jump.

    Ray Ray likes to keep his pimp hand strong. He don’t care if it’s the owner’s wife, he’s going to grope her anyway.

    Good for him, I thought he all ready was married.

    I’d say it’s probably good for Ray that he’s in so good with the owner. Shouldn’t hurt contract negotiations.
