Serena Williams weds Ohanian today-Report
Serena Williams and hubby Alexis Ohanian
London, Nov. 16, 2017 (AltAfrika)- Many international media outlets are reporting that Serena Williams and her guests have been spotted leaving her star-studded rehearsal dinner in New Orleans preparatory to her wedding today.
The tennis star wore a full-length ivory colored dress with pearls for the elegant rehearsal dinner, which kicked off at 6pm, followed by the after party, also at the Meril, which began at 9pm.
She was accompanied by Venus, her sister, who wore a silky dark blue dress, and their mother Oracene Price, who wore a short, purple dress in velvet, with a diamante feature, and matching diamante shoes.
The happy bride-to-be couldn’t stop smiling as she left the event at around midnight, as she climbed into a black chauffeured Cadillac with her family, and retreated to a $1.6 million mansion in the edge of the French Quarter at 1725 Esplanade Avenue.The property had been rented for that occasion and the couple appears to have taken to separate properties for the night before the wedding as Ohanian was nowhere to be seen.
Desperate Housewives’ Eva Longoria, Teen Wolf star Colton Haynes and William’s agent Jill Smoller were among the close group of friends and family invited to the event on Wednesday evening – the night before Williams is due to tie the knot with Alexis Ohanian in an intimate ceremony at The Contemporary Art Center on Thursday.
Williams, 36, a 23-time Grand Slam champion, and Ohanian, 34, welcomed their first child, daughter Alexis Olympia, on September 1.
They announced their engagement in December after meeting in 2015 in Rome.
Williams won this year’s Australian Open while pregnant, and is expected to defend her title in Melbourne in 2018 — just four-and-a-half months after giving birth to her baby girl.
