Pictures and Fun Facts from Serena Williams' wedding to Alexis Ohanian



I tweeted earlier today that if you read the story of how Alexis Ohanian and Serena Williams first met, you would definitely thank fate and fairy-tales.
If you have never read it, read it here.
To summarise, she went down for breakfast at a hotel but when breakfast had closed so she sat by the pool with her team. Alexis had also come downstairs and decided to go to the pool as well. When he sat close to them, her friends tried to get rid of him by telling him there was a rat on the table. On the day they met, she had not known of Reddit, a company he co-founded, and he was not a fan of Tennis.

Imagine that.

Anyways, this beautiful couple got married on Thursday the 17th of November and there begins our fun facts from their day.

- They chose the date, November 17th because that is the date Alexis' mum passed on.

- Serena wore 3 dresses. The first one was by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen and the other two were by Versace.

- NIKE customised a pair of sneakers for her to wear which she did after the vows and first wedding dance.

- Guests at the star-studded ceremony include Ciara, Kelly Rowland and her husband, Beyonce, Jay Z and Beyonce's mum, Tina Knowles, Lala Anthony and Eva Longoria and her husband.

- The decor was done by Preston Bailey. ('Funner' fact- My sister adores Preston Bailey)


- The couple did a choreography for their first dance (they danced to 'Tale as Old as Time') and also surprised guests when they danced with the band New Edition.



- Alexis had one last surprise for Serena- a carousel. She reportedly squealed in joy when she saw it.

What is one fun fact you love about the wedding?
