This is a mismatch that matched perfectly! Like they say, “opposite attracts”. If this was like the fictitious romance movie, be sure to have it on replay especially the special scenes like the first time they met, the first time they admit and proclaim their love and most important part, the first kiss.
It started out like a romantic comedy on their first unofficial date in the Hotel Cavalieri Hilton in Rome. He didn’t know a thing about tennis and she had no idea of his geeky business-Reddit. She came by the pool with her friends for dinner but learned sooner that the hotel restaurant was closed.
It was so annoying to find an “intruder” sitting next to them working on his laptop, eating. “There’s a rat under your table”, said Serena and her friends trying to get him off their space. His pithy response got him a ticket to join her and her team since he was so expressive. “I live in Brooklyn, I see lots of rats”, Alexis jokingly expressed.
Fast forward from that time to 2 days ago, a lot of things have happened to the duo. They had their daughter, got engaged and two days ago, tied the knot in New Orleans in such a coded way. Only Anna Wintour had the exclusive right to document and publish the wedding pictures and other details about the wedding.
Since Serena loves Disney, she wanted a fairytale themed wedding with specific details. They wanted to get married at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans and chose a particular (November 16) to honour Alexis’ late mum. In such an exclusive wedding will have exclusive guests as the queen of “beyhive” Beyonce Knowles and her mum, Tina Knowles, LaLa Anthony, Kim Kardashian-West, Ciara, Kelly Rowland and other crémé -de-la-crémé.
I wouldn’t justify the details of the setting better than Vogue but we can get the details of her dress as Vogue puts it; “Then, with all eyes on her, Serena emerged in a dramatic strapless, belted Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen princess gown with a cape, carrying a bouquet of white roses and sparkling with jewelry by XIV Karats, worth $3.5 million in total. Alexis, in an Armani suit, was smiling from ear to ear as Serena slowly walked up the aisle to join him. The couple wrote their own vows. Alexis’s called Serena his queen and said that they already have their princess. With a bold, confident voice, he talked about how she takes such good care of everyone in her life, and now he wants to spend the rest of his life taking care of her.
His words led to laughter at the start—“I will always have bad jokes that make your eyes roll, make you give me the side eye”—but by the end, everyone was crying happy tears: “You are the greatest of all time, not just in sport,” he told Serena. “I’m talking about as a mother and as a wife. I am so excited to write so many more chapters of our fairy tale together. And my whole life I didn’t even realize it, but I was waiting for this moment. And everything that I have done, everything that I am so proud of in my career, and in my life, for the last 34 years, pales in comparison to what we’re doing today. And I am so grateful, and I am so in love.”
