Carmelo Anthony's wedding is going to be in... New York?

Sorry, Denver glitz junkies: Your dreams of a high-profile celebrity wedding packed with luminaries from the worlds of sports and entertainment will not come to pass -- at least not as they apply to Nuggets star Carmelo Anthony and his longtime paramour, former MTV hostess and reality show maven La La Vazquez.

La La announced on The Wendy Williams Show that she and Melo are doing the marriage thang before a throng she estimates at 250-300 people, most of them likely famous, beautiful or some combination thereof. But, as you can see in the clip above, she says the nuptials will take place in New York rather than Colorado.

Same thing happened with John Elway, who got married last year in friggin' Idaho. Why can't any Colorado stars get married in Colorado?
