As Vogue reported, the photographer also shared photos of smiling Williams, 36, and her groom, 34, walking back down the aisle after saying their "I dos." The wedding to her baby daddy took a lot of preparation.

Williams tied the knot with wealthy internet entrepreneur Ohanian at a star-studded, French-ball style ceremony in New Orleans on Thursday. Her Alexander McQueen strapless, belted dress looked fit for a queen and was designed by Sarah Burton. It included a cape!

William's guest list included famous friends Beyoncé (with her mother, Tina Knowles), Kelly Rowland, Kim Kardashian West and Vogue editor Anna Wintour. Kim reportedly caused controversy by using her phone at the wedding, as Radar reported.

Photos of Williams dancing with her husband at the reception were shared online. The athlete changed into another white dress, a strappy '50s style feathered and beaded number by Versace. Williams enjoyed partying with such pals as Kardashian and Beyonce, who were cordial at the event. The reception featured tables named after Williams' grand-slam wins. The tennis icon changed into a third dress later in the night, a shorter Versace gown. Was Williams' wedding too over-the-top, Radar readers? Weigh in with a comment!
