Tennis superstar Serena Williams and Reddit cofounder Alexis Ohanian wed on November 16, 2017. The couple met about two years ago and have a two-month-old daughter.

The wedding was spectacular — from the guest list (Beyonce and Ciara were in attendance), to the extravagant designer dresses that Williams wore, to the dance performance the couple put on for their guests.

Take a look at the photos below to get a glimpse of the lavish affair.

Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian met in May 2015, at the Hotel Cavalieri in Rome. At the time, Williams had never heard of Reddit and Ohanian knew little about tennis. But Ohanian said he knew he wanted to marry Williams by April 2016. He proposed in December.

“The venue — the Contemporary Arts Center of New Orleans — was a decision we both made,” Williams told Vogue. “Painting and art is something I’m really passionate about, so it just felt natural and different to do it at a contemporary art museum.”
