LaLa Vazquez and Carmelo Anthony are known as the “First Couple” of the NBA — and they’ve certainly earned it.

Since moving from Denver, Colorado to four apartments on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, they’ve been living the east coast high life.

Their star-studded wedding — which included celebs like Justin Timberlake, Kim Kardashian, LeBron James, and Kelly Rowland — got them a five-episode special on VH1.

That snowballed into “LaLa’s Full Court Life,” which booked earned record ratings for VH1 — close to one million people watched the first season finale.

And we can see why.

Here's an overhead look at the Denver, CO mansion the couple listed at $9.5 million when Anthony got traded to the Knicks in 2010.

The couple hired Mindy Weiss, wedding planner to stars like Gwen Stefani and Fergie, to plan their big day.

The room at Cipriani's where the ceremony was held was decorated all red, 'Melo's favourite colour. 300 guests attended.

Including famous friends Kim Kardashian and Serena Williams.

This Ron Ben-Israel Cake took eight people to make.

After their lavish wedding, they honeymooned in the tropical Costa Rica.

Currently the couple divides their time between New York and Los Angeles, where they're often spotted at high-end restaurants like Matsuhisa.

In June 2011, Carmelo took a helicopter out to Southampton for dinner at Nobu at the Capri Hotel.

Later that month, the pair vacationed in Cabo San Lucas.

And they had fun with their underwater camera. We had to put this one in because it was too cute. Their four year old son is named Kiyan.

When the couple arrived in Manhattan, they rented four Upper West Side apartments in two buildings for their family and crew while they hunted for permanent digs. One of them is $19,000 per month. Both buildings have full-sized basketball courts.
