According to The Telegraph, an entire block in the city was closed to traffic, with a stream of black SUVs spotted ferrying members of the wedding part to the event.

On arrival, guests were reportedly welcomed to the Beauty and the Beast-themed nuptials with drinks and the sound of "Be Our Guest."

The tennis champion's coach Patrick Mouratoglou wished Serena a "happy wedding day" on Instagram, amid reports the wedding cost more than $1 million.

The Mail adds that members of R&B group New Edition played a five-song set during the reception. Meanwhile, table settings were named after Williams' 12 grand slam titles and party favors were recreations of the trophies she received for each corresponding title.

A source claims Serena wore not one but two dresses for occasion, while Kim Kardashian was seen dressed in a demure black strappy dress and her blonde hair scraped back into a low ponytail.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z cut their holiday onboard a yacht in Miami short for the festivities, with the rapper/producer having to jet off to North Carolina shortly after the nuptials to perform at his next tour stop.

The 36-year-old tennis star and her husband welcomed their first child together, daughter Alexis Olympia, on September 1.

Congratulations, you two!
