Wimbledon champion Serena Williams tied the knot with Alexis Ohanian in a Beauty And The Beast themed wedding in New Orleans, Louisiana on Thursday, November 16. The ceremony comes just 11 weeks after she gave birth to her daughter Alexis Jr. The pictures for their wedding are out and we cannot get enough.
@serenawilliams: 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. 📸 @melbarlowandco @allanzepedaphotography
Each one of my groomsmen is a best friend who also represents a different period of my life. Jon: childhood Huu: @uva Steve: @reddit Michael: my book & tour, Without Their Permission Garry: Initialized Capital To be rich with great friends is a privilege -- and it's no surprise that they all love my bride.
