New Orleans, Louisiana, USA : Tennis champion, Serena Williams, 36, married Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian in a lavish ceremony, at the Contemporary Arts Center, in New Orleans Thursday night, November 16. The couple had reportedly dated for three years before the wedding, and have a child together, Alexis Ohanian Jr., who was born a little over two months ago

Guests present at the wedding, to see their pal get married included Beyoonce ( with JayZ of course ), Kim Kardashian (Serena’s friend since 15 years), the glamorous pair of American actress Eva Longoria and Jose Bastion, supermodel Selita Ebanks, singer Kelly Rowland, La La Anthony, Arrow star Colton Haynes, Danish tennis pro Caroline Wozniaki with fiance David Lee among others

The editor-in-chief of Vogue Anna Wintour and newly engaged Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki also showed up on the special day.

Prior to the big day, the couple were joined by several of their close friends for a rehearsal dinner, including Eva Longoria, Colton Haynes and Emeril Lagasse, who hosted the bash at his Meril restaurant on Wednesday night.

Earlier this month, Williams also celebrated her upcoming nuptials with a bachelorette weekend in New York City alongside her sister, Venus, and pals Ciara and La La Anthony.

The group stayed at the Baccarat Hotel. They took a party bus around town and had a private dinner at TAO Group’s new seafood brasserie, Legasea. “They partied ‘til the wee hours at PH-D Rooftop in the Meatpacking District before returning back to the hotel,” an onlooker told Us. The following day, “the ladies were pampered with treatments at the Spa de La Mer at Baccarat Hotel.”

Williams and Ohanian, 34, got engaged in December 2016 and announced the news on Reddit.

Williams accidentally announced she was expecting in April by sharing what was meant to be a private photo of her baby bump publicly on Snapchat. Six months later, the couple welcomed their first child, daughter Alexis Olympia, on September 1.
