Serena Williams Reveals Wedding Pics
Serena Williams has officially hopped the broom with her tech tycoon boo Alexis Ohanian!
Big sis Venus Williams, good friends Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Lala Anthony and Ciara were all on hand to help the new bride celebrate her New Orleans nuptials.
Vogue magazine took exclusive photos of Serena’s fairytale, Beauty and the Beast-themed nuptials, and even provided the backstory of how the two met and the romantic way in which Alexis proposed.
Frustrated that an interloper was encroaching upon their space, Serena’s friend Zane started teasing Alexis, saying there was a rat at his table and that he should move. “I was so annoyed that he’d sat down next to me,” remembers Serena. “There were so many empty tables!” Undeterred by the frosty reception he seemed to be receiving, Alexis jokingly responded saying that he was from Brooklyn—he’d seen lots of rats, and they didn’t bother him. Serena started cracking up and asked him to join her group…
Fast-forward 18 months later and the Internet entrepreneur was proposing to the superstar. “I came home one day to find my bags already packed for me, and I had absolutely no idea where I was going until I got on the flight,” Serena admits. “Alexis flew me out to Rome, back to the exact table where we’d met. We were both really nervous but also excited to take this huge step. It was such a beautiful moment.” Ever the jokester, in addition to having the hotel cleared and flowers everywhere, Alexis had placed a small plastic rat on the table.
