The 36 year old athlete wore three different gowns for her wedding at the Contemporary Arts Centre in New Orleans, which was attended by superstars such as Beyoncé, Eva Longoria, Kim Kardashian West and Anna Wintour. 

Serena Williams said ‘I Do’ in a fairytale style Alexander McQueen dress, before debuting two more gowns throughout the night – including a short Versace number for her first dance with her new husband. 

The newlyweds are reported to have danced to ‘Tale As Old As Time’ – a nod to the Disney movie which the wedding was based on.  

In beautiful pictures taken on the day by Vogue Magazine, Serena and Alexis pose with their family and friends, including their adorable 11 week old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr, who is dressed in a cute white dress. 

The celebrations are believed to have cost more than $ 1million, with a source telling The Mail Online: “Serena and Alexis have spared no expense on their dream wedding.

“They have hired the best of the best and can’t wait to get married in The Big Easy. It’s a special city for Serena and somewhere she has always loved.”

Sharing a picture of himself kissing his bride, Alexis wrote a loving message on his Instagram account. 

He wrote: “@serenawilliams: 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 pair began dating in 2015 after meeting in Rome, with Alexis proposing last December.
