Official photos from Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s fairy tale wedding

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian got married on November 16 in Atlanta, and the news took social media by storm as People were curious to see the dresses Serena wowed in.



Now, VOGUE has published all the photos, including the cover story which tells what happened behind the scene, why they chose the November 16 date, and even the vows the couple exchanged.


On why they chose the date, Serena said it was in memory of Alexis’ mother who passed away nine years ago:


“It is her birthday, and we wanted her to be represented at the wedding. Obviously, we wish that she could be here for this, but choosing her birthday as our wedding date was a nice way of making sure she’s still involved and made us feel more connected to her on our day.”



On choosing her wedding dress, she said she met with Sarah Burton and Alexander McQueen just to make the right choice:

“I flew to London to meet with Sarah and ended up falling in love with the ball gown silhouette, which is completely the opposite of what I ever thought I would choose for myself. I loved the idea of doing a really spectacular ball gown, and it has turned out to be such an incredibly special piece.”



At the event, guests were entertained with a short video that told the couple’s love story. And Serena explains why they did this:


“I wanted the whole thing to be as nontraditional as possible. We did sofas instead of chairs, with everything facing the aisle instead of the altar.”



When it was time to exchange vows, here’s what Alexis reportedly said:


“I will always have bad jokes that make your eyes roll, make you give me the side eye. 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.”
