Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian just tied the knot yesterday, November 16, in an absurdly-gorgeous, crazy-fun wedding at New Orleans’ Contemporary Arts Center. At a wedding this cool (a tennis superstar bride and a Reddit cofounder groom? come on!), it’s no wonder that the event was seemingly the place to be for the celebrity set. No lie—this guest list was super star-studded.
After an 11-month engagement, Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian were ready to say I do. The couple had settled on the romantic setting of New Orleans as their wedding locale. “Alexis really wanted to do it here,” Williams told Vogue. “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.”
A whole slew of celebrities flocked to the Big Easy to watch the now-newlyweds tie the knot. Attendees reportedly kept with a Beauty and the Beast theme that Serena and Alexis dreamed up for their nuptials. "Be Our Guest" was even reportedly playing as guests arrived and were handed welcome drinks! But just who made the guest list cut? Beyoncé to celebrate with the “Crazy In Love” couple. Kim Kardashian also attended, along with Eva Longoria, Kelly Rowland, Tony Award winner Cynthia Erivo (who delivered a surprise performance of "Natural Woman" at the reception!), Ciara, tennis star Caroline Wozniacki (who just got engaged herself!
), and of course the bride's sis Venus Williams. Coolest. Guest List. Ever.
And the guests didn't disappoint in the fashion department—especially Kim Kardashian who went full 90s minimalism in a black slip dress with her hair tied back in a simple low ponytail. The dress is available on the app ScreenShop (where Kim is also an investor) according to Vogue.
And there's one more celeb on the guest list we can't forget about—the couple's 11-week-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. Little Olympia was of course there to witness her mom and dad say I do!
Have you ever seen such a trend-setting collection of wedding guests? Or better dressed baby?!
