Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian Step Out for First Time as Newlyweds at Post-Wedding Brunch
The couple tied the knot on Thursday after announcing their engagement in December 2016
The night after the couple swapped vows, they were spotted welcoming guests for a post-wedding brunch at The Ace Hotel in the Warehouse District of New Orleans on Friday.
Williams, wearing a sleeveless white dress with Chanel tweed espadrille flats and her hair pulled back in a ponytail, was all smiles while greeting her friends and family at the door alongside her new husband and Reddit co-founder Ohanian, who was dressed in a navy suit and baby blue dress shirt.
Also in attendance was the bride’s sister and bridesmaid, Venus Williams, who was seen chatting with friends at the hotel bar.
The newlyweds announced their engagement in December 2016.
The new Mr. and Mrs. Ohanian wed at the Contemporary Arts Center on Thursday evening in front of a slew of celebrity guests, including Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria and husband José Bastón, and fellow tennis star Caroline Wozniacki with her new fiancé, NBA player David Lee.
Williams walked down the aisle in a stunning custom Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen princess gown while Ohanian suited up in Armani.
In addition to her strapless, belted gown, the mother of one sparkled in jewelry by XIV Karats, worth $3.5 million.
When it came time for the reception, the star changed into a second wedding look: a white Versace dress that featured lace and feathers throughout the bodice.
And the night before tying the knot, the parents of 11-week-old baby girl Alexis Olympia held a star-studded rehearsal dinner at celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse‘s restaurant Meril with famous friends Longoria, supermodel Selita Ebanks, Colton Haynes and Cynthia Erivo.
Earlier this month, the 23-time Grand Slam champion gathered with her friends and family for an all-out girls weekend in New York City at the opulent Baccarat Hotel & Residences.
