Tennis star Serena Williams and beau Alexis Ohanian, co-founder of Reddit tied the knot on Thursday.

The couple were earlier spotted in a star-studded rehearsal dinner at celebrity chef Emeril Lagasse‘s restaurant Meril Wednesday night. Longoria, Colton Haynes and Cynthia Erivo were among the guests at the dinner.
The couple announced their engagement in December 2016, according to the US magazine People, almost two years after they began dating in 2015.
Williams announced the engagement with a poem which she posted on Reddit. She wrote: "I came home. A little late. Someone had a bag packed for me. And a carriage waited. Destination: Rome. To escort me to my very own charming. Back to where our stars first collided. And now it was full circle. At the same table, we first met by chance. But by choice. Down on knee. He said 4 words. And I said yes.”
Ohanian commented on her post, writing: "And you made me the happiest man on the planet.”
