It’s time for wedding bells as former tennis World No 1, Serena Williams is set to take her vows with fiancé Alexis Ohanian on Thursday.

Reports suggest that the 23-time Grand Slam champion will marry Ohanian at a lavish ceremony in New Orleans on Wednesday.


It’s such a super secret affair even the guests have not been informed of the venue.

A report by Dailymail quoted a source as saying, “They have hired the best of the best and can’t wait to get married in The Big Easy. It’s a special city for Serena and somewhere she has always loved. Serena and Alexis chose the ContemporaryArtsCenter because of its incredible architecture and history. They have instructed Preston to fill the hall with thousands of dollars worth of crystals and flowers. The hall will be totally transformed.”

The wedding expected to be attended by the crème-de-la-crème with big names like Beyoncé, Jay Z and Kris Jenner on the guest list.

According to some reports, the wedding will cost more than $1million with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle also in the guest list.

Serena and Alexis, co-founder of Reddit, got engaged last December and became parents to daughter Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. on September 1.
