Serena Williams Had a Beauty and the Beast-Themed Wedding — Like a Boss
Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian is officially Mr. Serena Williams! On Thursday, Ohanian and Williams were married at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans. While pictures from the wedding have not yet shown up on social media, we do have plenty of fun details to keep us enthusiastic and intrigued about these adorable celebrity nuptials.
Entertainment Tonight reports that the wedding had a theme, and that theme was Beauty and the Beast. Guests were reportedly welcomed into the wedding with the sweet sounds of "Be Our Guest," and apparently, they were also asked to dress according to the theme. So, even if no pictures are posted right now, you can use your imagination to conjure up images of what must have been the most glamorous wedding this year. Additionally, ET reports, "the day after their wedding, the couple and their guests will have 'a full-blown brunch at the Ace Hotel with a DJ, games and recovery bar.'" Uh, can we join, please?
The guests in attendance were also the cream of the crop (well, in my opinion, anyway). Reported guests included Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian West, La La Anthony, Kelly Rowland, Colton Haynes, Emeril Lagasse and, of course, Williams' sister Venus and her own daughter with Ohanian, Alexis Olympia. Sadly, we're unable to confirm if Meghan Markle made it down to The Big Easy for this eagerly anticipated celebrity wedding.
Williams has been preparing for this special day for quite some time. She got engaged to Ohanian in December of last year, and this past September, the couple welcomed their daughter. More recently, Williams had her bachelorette party, and over on her Instagram, it's clear she's been enjoying some post-tennis season downtime with her family.
What a happy time for this lovely couple. Congrats!
