A low-key wedding ceremony was held in the five-star Shangri-La Hotel in Shanghai, and only some 70 family members and relatives were present, according to Zhang Chi, press representative of TeamYao, which manages Yao's career.

根据姚明新闻界的代表张弛所言,婚礼在上海香格里拉大酒店低调举行,只有70个亲朋到场。

The ceremony, which lasted three hours, included exchange of rings, offering tea and flowers to parents to express gratitude, and sharing of a wedding cake, according to Zhang.

About 100 security guards had worked for the nuptial in which only 10 dinner tables were arranged with each costing 12,300 yuan (1,618 U.S. dollars), local media reported.

当地媒体报道:婚礼出动了100个安全守卫,仅有10桌的宴席,每桌花费12300元(1618美元)。

Yao, 27 and 2.26-meter-tall Houston Rockets star, and his bride Ye, a 26-year-old, 1.9-meter-tall player on China's national women's basketball team, received their official marriage certificate in Shanghai's Xuhui District on Friday.

According to Yao' autobiography, "Yao: A life in two worlds", he met Ye in 1999, when Yao was playing for the Shanghai Sharks. Their romance went public when the two were seen walking hand-in-hand at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.

姚明的自传《姚明:我的世界我的梦》中提到,他1999年遇到叶莉,当时姚明还在上海鲨鱼队。当这两个人2004年雅典奥运会上手牵手出现时,他们的浪漫便公之于众。
