Bledsoe, who was on head coach John Calipari’s first Kentucky team, wed longtime girlfriend Morgan Poole Saturday in his hometown of Birmingham, Alabama.
His former teammates, John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins, were groomsmen. Bledsoe, Wall and Cousins took the Wildcats to a 35-3 record together in the 2009-10 season and reached the Elite Eight in the NCAA Tournament.
Needless to say, they had fun reuniting and sharing in the celebration with each other.

AL.com reported that Cleveland Cavaliers star forward Lebron James also would attend the wedding. Lebron James has had high praises for Bledsoe in the past, according to the Arizona Republic, which reported James looks at Bledsoe as his little brother and “publicly urged” for the Suns to finalize contract negotiations with the former Wildcat. James has worked out with Bledsoe, and both players share the same agent, Rich Paul.
The Suns posted an adorable video on Twitter Saturday of Bledsoe and Poole, explaining how he proposed. Bledsoe and Poole had been dating since high school and got engaged in August of 2016. They share two children.
Bledsoe goes on to say, “I already knew she was going to be the one. You know, having two beautiful kids on top of that was icing on the cake.”
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
