Serena Williams tied the knot with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian
After three years of dating, tennis star Serena Williams tied the knot with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in an intimate ceremony in New Orleans on Thursday.
The most important of the guests was Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., the couple’s first child, who was born a little over two months ago. Serena’s sister and tennis legend Venus Williams was spotted at the venue on Wednesday. The celebrity guest list included reality TV star Kim Kardashian, glamour couple Eva Longoria and Jose Baston, supermodel Selita Ebanks, singer Kelly Rowland and TV personality La La Anthony.
Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour and Danish tennis player Caroline Wozniacki also showed up on the special day. Music royalty Beyonce and singer Ciara were also seen. Despite the media frenzy, the happy couple released few details of their ceremony. But sources told People magazine and the Daily Mail that some 250 guests were invited to the festivities at the southern U.S. city’s Contemporary Arts Center.
The venue is a large, four-storey, multi-disciplinary complex boasting approximately 10,000 sq.ft of gallery space. Security for the event was tight. An entire block in the Big Easy — a city known for its jazz music, good food and party atmosphere — was closed to traffic. A steady train of black SUVs brought members of the wedding party to the event.
