Stunning Photos Of Serena Williams' Star-Studded Wedding To Alexis Ohanian Show

Serena Williams reveals dress after post-wedding party
Serena Williams' stunning wedding dress has finally been revealed in a series of photos taken during and after her Thursday-night ceremony with Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian. Photos of the event taken exclusively by Vogue magazine show Williams looking radiant in the flowing, lacy white Alexander McQueen dress, which was crafted by head designer Sarah Burton.  Williams then swapped that for a shorter, though no less beautiful, number for the first dance, which saw the newlywed couple dancing to 'Tale As Old As Time' - a tune in line with the wedding's theme, Disney's Beauty and the Beast. And on Friday, the tennis star showcased the stamina that's made her a 23-time Grand Slam Champ, partying for a second day straight.

Beautiful: Williams looks gorgeous these photos from Vogue. Here she's showing off her Alexander McQueen princess gown, along with new husband Alexis Ohanian, their daughter, family - and top-hat-wearing dog

White wedding: The ceremony was inspired by Beauty and the Beast - note the yellow motif and roses - and so Williams' dress drew on classic Disney styles, with a princess gown topped off with a lace cape

Serena's wedding to Ohanian took place at the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans, with the pair surrounded by a bevy of friends, families and A-listers for the Beauty and the Beast-themed bash.
'Alexis really wanted to do New Orleans' Serena told Vogue in an exclusive interview. 'It's his favorite city besides Brooklyn. It's got a heavy European influence; it's fun and has amazing food. He just loves the vibe.'

She added that the decision to hold it at the Arts Center was 'a decision we both made. Painting and art is something I'm really passionate about, so it just felt natural and different to do it at a contemporary art museum.'  

As well as the couple's two-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, and Venus Williams - who wore a custom Galia Lahav bridesmaid's dress - was a who's who of the biggest names in American pop culture.
The Williams's older sister, Isha Price, was also spotted in a gorgeous green number.

Sadly, one family member who was there only in spirit was Ohanian's mother, who passed away nine years ago. The couple acknowledged her by holding the event on November 16 - her birthday.
'It is her birthday, and we wanted her to be represented at the wedding,' Serena said. '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.'
