Detriot Piston’s big man Kelly Olynyk had his wedding over the weekend with his longtime partner Jackie McNulty tied the knot in Santa Ynez, California this past Saturday, and the NBA veteran made headlines for all the right reasons.
At the party, Olynyk and McNulty—both alums of Gonzaga—spared no expense, treating guests to food trucks, a scavenger hunt, sushi flown in from Olynyk’s favorite restaurant in Boston (where he played for the Celtics from 2013-17), mini-basketball, a “shot clock” for chugging drinks and even table games including craps and poker.
It was a fun wedding, and Olynyk dressed for the occasion. Instead of rocking a nice pair of dress shoes, Olynyk opted for a pair of retro Jordans and a snap back – all while donning a classic black and white tuxedo.
