Posted on November 21 by Allison Dupree

Serena-Williams-WeddingLOVE now has multiple meanings for the tennis superstar. Serena Williams married founder Alexis Ohanian on November 16 in New Orleans Serena-Williams-WeddingThe couple chose to marry on Ohanian’s late mother’s birthday in her honor and to feel closer to her throughout the day and their marriage. They were married at the Contemporary Arts Center with their newborn baby girl Olympia, family members and many of their celebrity friends in attendance. Serena-Williams-WeddingThe two have a classic love story of opposites attracting (he had never watched tennis and famously instagrammed her foot faulting, she had never heard of Reddit but later announced their engagement on the site in a poem) yet they fell in love. Serena-Williams-WeddingTheir first dance was to “Tale As Old As Time” from Beauty and the Beast since Serena is a self proclaimed Disney fan. Serena-Williams-WeddingSerena had 3 dresses that she wore throughout the evening, all custom made for her. She even had bedazzled Nike sneakers for the big day. Serena-Williams-WeddingWe love how Serena let all of her bridesmaids pick their own dresses and how she took many steps to making it as unique and different from a traditional ceremony as possible. Serena-Williams-WeddingCongratulations to the happy couple and we look forward to seeing more LOVE in her life.
