Tennis star Serena Williams and Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian tied the knot on Nov. 16 in a lavish, fairy tale, star-studded ceremony in New Orleans, just 11 weeks after the birth of their first child together, daughter Alexis Jr. Guests included Serena’s besties, La La Anthony, Eva Longoria and Ciara as well as Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and of course, big sister Venus.
Williams wore a ball gown fit for a queen designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, and, according to People magazine, her bride’s maids wore custom dresses by Galia Lahav.
For the reception, Williams changed into a custom Versace dress that featured lace and feathers and a pair of sparkly sneakers to dance in.
Serena and Alex began dating in 2015 and announced their engagement in December 2016.
