Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian share photos from lavish wedding
UPI News Service, 11/20/2017
Celebrity couple Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian are giving fans a glimpse into their lavish wedding.
The 36-year-old tennis star and 34-year-old Reddit co-founder posted pictures on Instagram from their star-studded nuptials, which took place Thursday at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, La.
Williams shared a snapshot Friday of herself in her princess-style wedding gown.
The strapless, belted dress with a cape was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, according to Vogue.
Ohanian posted several photos on his own account, including a picture Friday of himself kissing Williams at the altar. He couldn't help but gush about the athlete and new mom in the caption.
"@serenawilliams: You are the greatest of all time, not just in sport -- I'm talking about as a mother and as a wife," the entrepreneur wrote. "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," he added.
"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."
Ohanian followed up Monday with a snapshot of himself and Williams at their reception, writing, "That feeling when you're first introduced as husband & wife."
Williams and Ohanian got engaged in December, and welcomed their first child, daughter Alexis Olympia, in September.
