Here ye, here ye ... Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union are swapping "I dos" today in a famous MOATED CASTLE hidden away in Miami, FL ... TMZ Sports has learned.
The place is called "Chateau Artisan" -- considered one of the coolest pieces of property in the country ... and it's also where Birdman shot his 2010 music video for "Fire Flame."
Dwyane and Gabby have been going to extreme lengths to make sure their wedding is super private ... which is why this ultra-guarded estate PROTECTED BY A MOAT appealed to the couple.
We broke the story ... the couple is making their guests sign confidentiality agreements -- and have also banned social media from the event.
As for the property -- we're talkin' 19,000 square feet, 8 bedrooms, 7.5 baths ... and sits on 14 acres.
Sources tell us workers have been on the property for the past couple of weeks making sure the place looks PERFECT for the couple's big day.
And this might be all you'll see ... unless someone at the party DARES to tweet.

To Perform at Wedding
8/30/2014 12:15 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Dwyane Wade's wedding will be classical ... with a hint of Michael Jordan ... because he hired the famous hip hop violinist that MJ signed to Jordan Brand back in 2009 .... TMZ Sports has learned.
We've learned ... D-Wade and Gabby reached out to Lee England Jr. -- the very first non-athlete to sign with Jordan Brand -- and asked him to perform at some point in the evening.
England Jr. -- known as the "Michael Jordan of the Violin" -- is no stranger to celebrity events ... he performed at Donald Trump's NYC penthouse 3 times last year and is a regular at NBA games.
No word on what songs are on England Jr.'s set list -- but if the Wade's dig Beyonce, dude does a killer version of "Drunk In Love."

David Beckham didn't walk away clean from that motorcycle accident after all -- we just saw him at LAX with his hand in a cast.
Becks held up his damaged right mitt as he walked into the terminal with his kids, and photogs asked how he was feeling after laying down his bike on Sunset Boulevard yesterday.

SUSPENDED 9 GAMES
For Hellraising Behavior
8/29/2014 1:44 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The 49ers will be without superstar linebacker Aldon Smith for the first 9 games of the season -- because the NFL has just suspended #99 for raising hell off the field.
The NFL announced the penalty moments ago -- saying Smith violated the league's substance abuse and personal conduct policy.
The league was not specific about which incidents Smith is being punished for (he's been in trouble a lot lately) ... but it's likely the move is tied to Smith's recent plea deal in Santa Clara, CA.
As we previously reported, Smith was sentenced to 12 days in jail in a case involving a DUI (from 2013) and weapons charges (from 2012).
He was also arrested at LAX earlier this year for yelling "bomb" in the airport -- but officials ultimately decided not to prosecute Smith for that.
USC's Josh Shaw
'Possible Dom. Dispute'
8/29/2014 1:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The LAPD is investigating a "possible domestic dispute" between USC football player Josh Shaw and his GF ... which they believe may have happened on the night Shaw injured his ankles.
As TMZ Sports first reported, a witness called cops last Saturday night after seeing a person "shimmying" down the side of an apartment building in downtown L.A. around 10:40 PM.
Now, cops are saying the witness also reported hearing a woman screaming in the moments before the man scaled down the building.
When cops arrived to the apartment, no one answered the door -- so they broke it down and found a window that had been pried open.
A woman who lives in the unit eventually returned -- and told cops the description of the man seen jumping out of the window sounded a lot like her boyfriend Josh Shaw.
Cops say the woman "did not indicate she was the victim" of domestic violence.
Shaw 's attorney previously told TMZ Sports the football player is adamant there was NO domestic violence.
Still, cops say the investigation will continue. As for how Shaw REALLY injured himself on the night in question -- he still has not said a word other than that it did NOT happen while saving his 7-year-old nephew from drowning.

At Equestrian Show
8/29/2014 10:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Bad news for Mary-Kate Olsen at a big equestrian show in NY this week -- when her horse refused to jump during one of the events ... leaving her with a big fat zero on the score sheet.
It all went down at the 39th Annual Hampton Classic Horse Show -- where the 28-year-old former "Full House" actress was attempting to show off her talents in the saddle.
But according to multiple reports, her brown horse (named Uniek) wasn't in the jumping mood -- and ruined the run.
Don't worry ... MKO got on another horse (named Swagger) who seemed more up for the challenge.
As for Olsen's twin sister -- she has yet to be seen at the event.
Luckily she didn't fall off the horse and get amnesia this time.

Rage Against the Machine Rocker
LANCE ARMSTRONG RULES
Time to Forgive the Guy
8/29/2014 6:32 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lance Armstrong has a pretty cool ally -- the bassist from Rage Against the Machine ... who's vouching that Armstrong still "rules" and says it's time for people to get over the P.E.D. scandal.
TMZ Sports spoke with Tim Commerford -- who's gotten pretty serious about cycling over the years -- and he told us that Armstrong was his "pit crew guy" during a recent race in Colorado.
"[He] took care of me and fed me and hydrated me ... trained with me and all that. It was an awesome experience."
And get this ... Commerford says despite the cheating and all the other bad stuff Armstrong 'fessed up to, he still thinks Lance is an inspiring guy and deserves a second chance with the American public.
As for Lance, he's taken a self deprecating approach in the hopes to change his image ... and recently got props from the cops for helping spread the word about a bike thief.
So, we gotta ask ... do YOU forgive the guy?
