For the event, he opted to wear a fuzzy white coat over an all-black ensemble while his longtime partner, 39, wore an off-the shoulder white blouse and matching pants. 

They both rocked sunglasses inside and appeared over the moon as they seemed to enjoy their very first hours as husband and wife.

Earlier this week, DailyMail.com exclusively revealed their plans to tie the knot in Sin City. 

Records show the pair obtained a marriage license in Clark County on February 8 – five days ago. 

A source told DailyMail.com that the OMG singer made the decision to wed after taking advice from his spiritual advisor Amba Kahly Su.

The wedding, which will follow what is sure to be a smashing performance, will be an intimate affair attended only by close friends and family.

The marriage will be the star’s second: his previous wife is fashion designer Tameka Foster, 53, with whom he shares teenage sons Usher ‘Cinco’ Raymond V, 16, and Navid Ely, 15.

Usher also has two children with Goicoechea, 39 – daughter Sovereign Bo, three, and son Sire Castrello, two.

The soon-to-be married couple have been together since October 2018 when she was photographed attending his birthday party.

A year later, Usher was photographed kissing the Miami-born music executive backstage at the October 2019 Hollywood Bowl.

The couple have also made repeated red carpet appearances together – including Vanity Fair’s 2023 Oscar party – and regularly appear on each other’s Instagram pages. 

In a gushing post to mark Goicoechea’s 39th birthday in October last year, the singer paid tribute to the mom-of-two, writing: ‘I couldn’t ask for a better partna. Happy birthday, my love.’

Last week – on the same day the marriage license was filed – Usher appeared on the Talk and confirmed his family would be at the Super Bowl to see him perform.

He said: ‘They will be around. I’ve been receiving tons of notes from Naviyd. Usher, he gave me a couple of notes.

‘He gave me a few songs he felt like I should definitely cut, songs I should keep.’

The dad-of-four also told of his battle to balance family life with R&B superstardom, adding: ‘My kids – sometimes, they don’t want me to come.

The soon-to-be married couple have been together were first seen together when she was photographed attending his birthday party. They are seen here attending the 2021 iHeartRadio Music Awards at The Dolby Theatre in 2021

‘They don’t want me to be at their basketball game or their recital, or they wanna be very, very low-key because they don’t want that energy.

‘And it’s hard, because I try my hardest to have that empathy, but I wanna be there.’

All four children are likely to attend Usher’s second wedding which will take place in one of Las Vegas’ famous chapels.

The rapper is one of a slew of celebrities who have said their vows in Sin City in recent years, among them Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck and Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker.

J-Lo, 54, said I do with Affleck, 51, at The Little White Wedding Chapel in July 2022 – a month before she repeated her vows at an extravaganza ceremony at the actor’s Savannah, Georgia, estate.

Earlier the same year, Kardashian, 44, and Barker, 48, said yes at an impromptu midnight wedding at the city’s One Love Chapel.

Unlike Usher and J-Lo, the lovebirds failed to get a license which meant they had to repeat their vows at Santa Barbara Courthouse in May 2022 before saying I do for the third time in a lavish wedding a week later in Portofino, Italy.

Other celebrities to tie the knot in Sin City include Britney Spears whose January 2004 marriage to childhood friend Jason Alexander lasted just 55 hours before being annulled.

Nicholas Cage, 60, married wife Riko Shibata, 29, at the Wynn Hotel in February 2021 while singer Lily Allen, 38, and Stranger Things actor David Harbour, 48, were married by an Elvis impersonator in the city in September 2020.

Usher, meanwhile, will be the big star of the Super Bowl LVIII halftime show at Allegiant Stadium Sunday night when the San Francisco 49ers take on the Kansas City Chiefs.

Reba McEntire will sing the national anthem while Post Malone will perform America The Beautiful and Andra Day will sing Lift Every Voice And Sing as part of the pregame performances.
