The dinner will take place at The Contemporary Art Center on Thursday. The tennis star’s agent Jill Smoller was also among the guests, as well as Serena’s sister Venus, and their mother Oracene Price. It was thought that guests including Beyoncé, Jay-Z and Kris Jenner, were also invited but they managed to avoid the waiting paparazzi.
The tennis ace got engaged to Ohanian at the end of 2016, the pair then welcomed their baby daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr. in September 2017, and now it seems Serena has been privately preparing to make it all official by putting wedding plans in action. The 36-year-old was previously rumoured to have her heart set on a romantic ceremony in New Orleans, and it looks like her dreams are coming true.
Earlier in the day on Wednesday, a carousel was seen being positioned in the parking lot outside The Contemporary Art Center, and Venus, herself a grand-slam champion, was seen doing a walk through before the big day wedding. Cases of wine and tableware were also seen being delivered to the Center which had vented and air-conditioned tents erected in the parking lot.
