Serena Williams's Wedding Was Practically An Award Show Because It Was Full Of Celebs

ICYMI, Serena Williams, the GOAT, and Alexis Ohanian, “Mayor of the Internet” (aka the co-founder of Reddit), got engaged back in January.

Serena gave birth to the couple’s daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian, Jr., two months ago, after accidentally announcing her pregnancy in April. (She is VERY cute, btw.)

Well, on Thursday night in New Orleans, the couple made things official when they walked down the aisle at their Beauty and the Beast-inspired wedding, and it was MAGNIFICENT.

According to Vogue, the couple danced their first dance to “Tale as Old as Time,” and other songs from the Disney classic played throughout the evening.

There were also nods to Serena’s amazing career — the tables were named after the 23 grand slam titles she’s won, while the party favors were personalized trophies.

The bride was stunning in not one…

Kim told Vogue, “I’ve known Serena for so long and am so happy she’s found her prince…she’s been so happy and has this light about her that is so special to see. You just know it is so real.”

Alexis shared a few photos of the special day on his Instagram, adding a message so beautiful it’ll make you cry like you’re watching the first 15 minutes of Up.

“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.”

The biggest congratulations to the happy couple! ❤️❤️❤️
