Tennis superstar Serena Williams married Reddit Co-Founder Alexis Ohanian in a fairytale wedding at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans last week.
@serenawilliams: You are the greatest of all time, not just in sport–I’m talking about as a mother and as a wife. I am so excited to write so many more chapters of our fairy tale together. And my whole life I didn’t even realize it, but I was waiting for this moment. And everything that I have done, everything that I am so proud of in my career, and in my life, for the last 34 years, pales in comparison to what we’re doing today. And I am so grateful, and I am so in love. 📸 @mistadubb @ericamelissa_
Serena walked down the aisle clad in a Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen dress with a cape and jewels worth $3.5 million, according to Vogue.
After tying the knot with @alexisohanian last night, @serenawilliams debuted her second dress of the evening, a dramatic beaded, feathered @versace_official moment that made her look like a fashion-forward superwoman.

Apart from that dress, she rocked two more outfits. But what really captured many fans’ attention was the pair of blinged-out Nike Cortez sneakers she also wore on her special day.
