Serena Williams’ Wedding to Have No Cell Phones: Reports
New Delhi: American tennis star Serena Williams and fiancé Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit, is all set to tie the know this week. According to the People Magazine, the ceremony will reportedly take place at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Some 250 guests are expected to attend the event, which came just three months after the couple was blessed with their first child together, Alexis Ohanian Jr., on September 1.
However, if reports are to be believed then guests attending the event, won’t be allowed to bring mobile phones to the ceremony which will cost more than $1 million. The ‘no entry’ of cell phones is due to the exclusive photo deal that has been signed with Vogue, hence no one else will have the rights to take pictures of the wedding.
According to the entertainment website ETonline, the wedding was to have a ‘Beauty and the Beast’ theme and Lala Anthony, some members of the Kardashian family and Ciara, who will be accompanied by her husband Russell Wilson, Kris Jenner, Beyonce, JAY-Z, and perhaps Prince Harry’s girlfriend and actress Meghan Markle are also likely to attend the wedding.
Serena’s sisters, including her elder sister and fellow tennis player Venus Williams, are going to be her bridesmaids.
Meanwhile, Alexis had a bachelor party on Tuesday night at the Frankie & Johnny’s seafood restaurant in New Orleans, where he dined with his friend on several traditional dishes like red beans and rice and Po’ boys and drank beer and water.
The couple, who began dating each other in 2015, announced that they got engaged in December 2016.
Earlier this month, the former world number one celebrated her upcoming marriage with an ultra-swanky girls’ weekend alongside her elder sister Venus Williams, close friends LaLa Anthony, Ciara among others in New York City.
Williams, who won this year’s Grand Slam title at the Melbourne Park, while she was pregnant, is hoping to make a return just four-and-a-half months after giving birth to her baby girl at next year’s Australian Open.(With ANI inputs)
