Serena Williams wedding: All the beautiful photos

Serena Williams tied the knot with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian on 16 November

Congratulations are in order for Serena Williams who married her Reddit co-founder beau, Alexis Ohanian, on 16 November. The joyous occasion was attended by the A-list elite, including Beyonce, Anna Wintour and Kim Kardashian, and hosted in New Orleans.

Hundreds of guests flocked to the Contemporary Arts Center, which was completely transformed into a Beauty and the Beast theme bringing Williams’ fairytale to reality. The venue was adorned with crystals, gold cages, endless stunning flower arrangements and sofas for the guests to sit as Williams and her bridesmaids strutted down the aisle runway style.

Williams, 36, looked beautiful in a bespoke Sarah Burton design from Alexander McQueen which she wore for the main ceremony, before changing into two more white dresses during the reception. The tennis champ’s new husband, Ohanian, 34, looked handsome in an Armani suit complete with a velvet emerald green blazer.

Explaining their choice of venue, Williams told Vogue who exclusively published the first wedding photos: “Alexis really wanted to do New Orleans. It’s his favourite city besides Brooklyn. It’s got a heavy European influence; it’s fun and has amazing food. He just loves the vibe. The venue — the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans — was a decision we both made. Painting and art is something I’m really passionate about, so it just felt natural and different to do it at a contemporary art museum.”

Lending even more meaning to their special day, the newlyweds chose to marry on what would have been the birthday of Ohanian’s mother, who died nine years ago.

The couple were surrounded by their closest friends and family, including Williams’ older sister Venus Williams, and celebrities like Kelly Rowland, Ciara, Lala Anthony and Eva Longoria. Beyonce’s husband Jay-Z did attend briefly but had to fly out to North Carolina to perform a show on his 4:44 tour.

However, the star of the show was undoubtedly Williams and Ohanian’s adorable two-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, who sat contently with her grandmother, Oracene Williams during the ceremony.

If there’s anyone who deserves a happy ending, it’s Serena Williams. Check out all the amazing pictures…
