Serena Williams marries Ohanian in $1m star-studded bash

Serena Williams proved her dominance off the court on Thursday, as she drew a celeb-packed group of A-listers to New Orleans for her nuptials to millionaire Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, according to the Daily Mail.

The couple was surrounded by a bevy of friends, families and A-listers, including their two-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., as they said their ‘I dos’ in a Beauty and the Beast themed bash at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans.

An entire block of the city was sealed off for the event which was held at the Contemporary Arts Center.

Kim Kardashian, Venus Williams, Beyonce, and the members of New Edition, who played a five-song set during the reception, were spotted arriving at the venue’s VIP entrance for the biggest celebrity wedding in recent years.

Guests were also gifted one of Williams’ unique golden trophy party favors.

Each guest table at the event had been named after one of Williams’ 12 grand slam titles, and her favors were recreations of the trophies she received for each corresponding title.
