Tennis champion Serena Williams married Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit in New Orleans at a romantic “Beauty and the Beast” wedding on Thursday, November 16, 2017.
The ceremony, very private, took place at the Contemporary Arts Center. They made their first dance on the cult song “Tales as old as time”. Serena Williams wore three dresses with completely different styles. The wedding dress is a beautiful Sarah Burton princess dress for Alexander McQueen valued at $ 2.6 million. It was embellished with a magnificent cape and a veil.
I went to London to meet Sarah and fell in love with the ballroom style of creation, which is completely the opposite of what I thought I would choose,” Serena told Vogue. “I loved the idea of a spectacular ball gown and it was really an amazing creation.”
The other two dresses were from Versace. On the other hand, the groom had put on a black suit and a white shirt from Armani’s. He made a beautiful statement on his instagram:
You are the greatest of all time, not just in sport–I’m talking about as a mother and as a wife. I am so excited to write so many more chapters of our fairy tale together. And my whole life I didn’t even realize it, but I was waiting for this moment. And everything that I have done, everything that I am so proud of in my career, and in my life, for the last 34 years, pales in comparison to what we’re doing today. And I am so grateful, and I am so in love. “
