Serena Williams and now-husband Alexis Ohanian had their fairy-tale, Beauty and the Beast-inspired wedding last week in New Orleans. With three different bridal looks, a carousel, and a megawatt high-profile celebrity guest list, the couple’s nuptials may be the most talked-about celebrity affair of the year. Just after the wedding, Ohanian dedicated a super romantic Instagram post to his new wife, and it’s heart-meltingly perfect.
“@serenawilliams: You are the greatest of all time, not just in sport—I’m talking about as a mother and as a wife,” Ohanian wrote in the post. “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.”
Since the two exchanged “I dos” Thursday night, Ohanian has flooded his Instagram account with sweet photos from the ceremony and reception, including an official family photo with baby Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., the couple’s first dance, and a romantic snap of the pair on a carousel ride. Clearly, Ohanian is over the moon about being married to the tennis legend.
The newlyweds had a big weekend after their wedding too. On Friday, they invited their wedding guests to a brunch in New Orleans. And on Sunday, the pair jetted off to an unknown location with baby Alexis.
