Serena Williams shares stunning photos of ‘fairy tale’ wedding gown
Serena Williams, 36, has shared photos of her not one, but two bridal looks from her wedding Friday to Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, 34. Vogue exclusively published snaps of her special day on Friday.
The couple wed on Thursday in a Beauty and the Beast-inspired ceremony in the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, before a star-studded crowd of guests including Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, JAY-Z, Serena’s sister Venus Williams, Vogue‘s editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, and Prince Harry‘s girlfriend and actress Meghan Markle.
The couple chose the wedding date of November 16 in honour of Ohanian’s mother, who passed away nine years ago.
“It is her birthday, and we wanted her to be represented at the wedding,” Williams told Vogue. “Obviously, we wish that she could be here for this, but choosing her birthday as our wedding date was a nice way of making sure she’s still involved and made us feel more connected to her on our day.”
For her nuptials, Williams wore a show-stopping, princess-inspired wedding gown featuring a dreamy cape, which was designed by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen.
