Serena Williams has married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in one of the biggest showbiz weddings of the year.
An entire block of the city was sealed off for the event which was held at the Contemporary Arts Center.
The tennis all-star tied the knot with Alexis Ohanian, her Reddit co-founder beau of two years, in front of their closest family and friends. Beyonce, Kim Kardashian and Eva Longoria were at the star-studded bash which took place in New Orleans on Thursday. The event had 200 people on the guestlist, according to media reports. Also in attendance was Serena and Alexis’ little girl, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., who was born a little over two months ago
Other guests included tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, Serena’s sister Venus Williams, Kelly Rowland, Ciara, La La Anthony, Vogue editor Anna Wintour and Russell Wilson, according to the Daily Mail.
It reports that the wedding cost more than $1m (£760,000) and guests were asked not to bring their mobile phones because of an exclusive deal with Vogue.
Her coach Patrick Mouratoglou wished Serena a “happy wedding day” on Instagram.
Just last week, the 23-time Grand Slam winner kicked off the wedding festivities with a bachelorette party in New York City. Serena was joined by her famous gal pals at the Baccarat Hotel & Residences for a weekend of five-star spa treatments, trapezing, tea brunches, dinner and dancing.
