The Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans was bustling with excitement in preparation for Serena Williams & Alexis Ohanian’s Beauty and the Beast Inspired Wedding. I was among a team of talented photographers- Bob Metelus, Mel Barlow & Co, and Allan Zepeda that was honored to capture and be a part of it all. This night was nothing short of magical. Every detail so personal and meticulously selected and all the details were exclusively shared and featured on Vogue. Here are some of my favorite highlights of the week! Sweet Olympia had her own custom pieces by J & A Estrada while Alexis stunned in a flawless Giorgio Armani tux.
Serena was breathtaking in her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding ball gown. Grandma & sweet Alexis Olympia stole my heart as they gazed up at the ceremony, while singer Ciara & Editor & Chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour were just among many of the star studded guests.
Sisters are the best…and when I spotted this moment, my heart swelled.
This sweet family picture just melts me!
