Serena Williams, 36, may be a pro on the court, but she’s even more of a star off of it! The athlete’s much-awaited wedding attracted a crowd of A-listers only seen on Hollywood red carpets.
Kim Kardashian, Beyonce, Anna Wintour, Ciara, Kelly Rowland and La La Anthony were only some of the stars present at the ceremony. Queen B brought along her entire Knowles family, as they were joined by tennis pro Caroline Wozniacki and actor Colton Haynes. Eva Longoria and José Bastón were also present, as were model Selita Ebanks and David Lee.
As Radar previously reported, the glitzy wedding ceremony was inspired by the Beauty And The Beast Disney film – but made even more glamorous by its Hollywood crowd. Adding to the fairytale glamour and carnival theme, Serena and Alexis’ elaborate wedding cake was beautiful with white and gold patterns topped with white roses. Guests were also offered popcorn and beignets.
Cases of Casamigos – George Clooney’s tequila – were brought in by staff for the festivities, and guests were greeted with a celebratory drink before heading into the party.
Various Southern-style food trucks were stationed outside the venue, and each guest was given a golden tennis trophy with their name when leaving the bash.
During the party, a brass band set the mood as the happy bride talked to pals while wearing a princess-like white dress. According to a source, her gown had a long V-neck that reached down to her waist in a revealing yet elegant fashion.
A source claimed there were about 250 guests at the elegant ceremony, including Serena’s sister Venus Williams and their mother. The street was closed off to outsiders for the VIP bash.
The wedding reportedly cost over $1 million, and was followed by a tasteful brunch the next morning.
As Radar readers know, Venus was the one to plan little sis Serena’s beautiful rehearsal dinner. She was also involved in planning her adorable all-girls baby shower. Both events were low-key and glamorous, yet just as star-studded as the wedding itself!
Alexis, 37, on the other hand, was seen enjoying his last days as a single man during his wild bachelor party before the wedding. He was caught smoking and partying the night away in New Orleans, hours before tying the knot to his stunning bride.
