Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian have tied the knot in a lavish wedding, in front of a slew of celebrities at the Contemporary Arts Centre in New Orleans. The reception followed just outside in a closed-off street.

The tennis ace, 36, and millionaire Reddit co-founder, 34, said 'I do' with guest list featuring the likes of Beyonce, Beyonce's mum, Tina Knowles, Kim Kardashian, Kelly Rowland, Selita Ebanks, Editor-in-chief of Vogue Anna Wintour and Colton Haynes.

Former Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria, who was joined by her husband Jose Baston, and fellow tennis star Caroline Wozniacki and her NBA star fiance David Lee were also in attendance.

According to reports, the theme of the wedding was Beauty and the Beast and the guests entered the venue to Be Our Guest playing.

They were treated to music from New Edition, while a brass band was pictured playing during the outdoor reception.

The high-profile guests are said to have only been given the exact location in the Louisana city the morning of the nuptials.

The wedding is believed to have cost more than $1million, with a source telling the Daily Mail: "Serena and Alexis have spared no expense on their dream wedding.

"They have hired the best of the best and can't wait to get married in The Big Easy. It's a special city for Serena and somewhere she has always loved."


Serena and Alexis

The previous night Serena and Alexis, who welcomed their daughter Alexis into the world almost three months ago, were joined by close friends and family, including Eva and Colton, for a rehearsal dinner that was held at celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse's restaurant.

Ahead of the wedding Serena's longtime coach took to Instagram to send his wishes to the tennis star and her husband-to-be.

“I send you all my positive feelings for that very special day,” Patrick Mouratoglou wrote. “I wish you a very happy wedding, a fantastic party and a full life of happiness with @alexisohanian.”

Alexis proposed in December of last year and Serena revealed her engagement story on Reddit – the website Alexis co-founded in 2005 – with a short poem.

It read: “I came home/ A little late/ Someone had a bag packed for me/ And a carriage awaited.

“Destination: Rome/ To escort me to my very own ‘charming’/ Back to where our stars first collided.

“And now it was full circle/ At the same table we first met by chance/ This time he made it not by chance/ But by choice/ Down on one knee/ He said 4 words/ And I said yes.”

Alexis immediately replied to Serena's public declaration by telling her: "And you made me the happiest man on the planet."

The pair first met in 2015 at a lunch and started dating in October of that year.

They welcomed the first child together, daughter Alexis Olympia, on 1 September.
