Serena Williams' Wedding Sees Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, Ciara & More In Attendance

Meanwhile, the celebrity guests, included Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Eva Longoria and husband José Bastón, and fellow tennis star Caroline Wozniacki with her new fiancé, National Basketball Association player David Lee.

Serena Williams was the belle of the ball last night (Nov 16) as she married her long-time love Alexis Ohanian during a star-studded ceremony in New Orleans.

Serena was seen dancing beside Venus in a white prom style dress with white sparkly Nike shoes so she could dance comfortably.

The happy couple kept many details of their New Orleans ceremony under wraps.

Although the guest list was under wraps, celebrities such as actress Nicole Ari Parker and model Selita Ebanks were spotted arriving to the venue in the city's Warehouse District. Music royalty Beyonce was also expected to attend.

The Russian-drafted resolution was unlikely to garner the nine votes required for adoption, diplomats said. Russian UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said the United States draft resolution was not balanced.

A steady train of black SUVs brought members of the wedding party to the event.

The theme of the big day was reportedly Beauty and the Beast with close ties to Serena's profession as each table was named after one of her 12 Grand Slam titles and guests took home replicas of her trophies as party favours.

The couple announced their engagement in December previous year after dating for 15 months.

While New Edition was the featured entertainment, gospel, funk and brass jazz bands from New Orleans also performed.

The event was strictly cell-phone free, and guests were banned from taking any photographs as Williams had signed an exclusive deal with editor-in-chief Anna Wintour - another famous guest - to publish photos of the 250-guest wedding in Vogue Magazine. They got engaged in December 2016.
