PALM BEACH GARDENS — Top-ranked tennis mega-champ Serena Williams is having a top secret wedding Thursday in New Orleans.
The Palm Beach Gardens lass is set to wed her beau Alexis Ohanian, the co-founder of Reddit, in a hush-hush ceremony that’s been kept so quiet the guests don’t even know where it’s being held!
But, multiple sources have said the couple, who had a baby only eleven weeks ago, will be getting married at the New Orleans Contemporary Arts Center with 250 guests in attendance.
Some of the big celebs coming in to wish the young couple well include Beyonce, Jay Z, Kris Jenner, Ciara and Meghan Markle, Prince Harry‘s girlfriend.
All of those guests will be banned from using their cellphones — or even bringing electronics — to the ceremony, because Olympic medalist Williams has given her buddy Anna Wintour‘s Vogue the exclusive rights to the wedding photos.
Can’t get more exclusive than that!
The plan had been for guests to be kept in the dark about the wedding details until Thursday morning, but the cat is well on its way out of the bag.
The extravagant, $1 million wedding is being orchestrated by celebrity wedding planner Preston Bailey.
Someone close to the preparations told the DailyMail.com: “Serena and Alexis have spared no expense on their dream wedding … They have hired the best of the best and can’t wait to get married in The Big Easy. It’s a special city for Serena and somewhere she has always loved.”
The couple plans to bring a nanny to the wedding with them to keep an eye on their daughter, little 11-week-old Alexis Ohanian, Jr.
“Alexis will have a babysitter on hand just for her the entire night,” the source said. “Both parents wouldn’t dream of not having her there. She will be a part of the wedding as much as possible for an 11-week-old. They are totally and utterly besotted with her.”
Not only will there be a babysitter for the little one, there will also be lots of security to keep nosy onlookers and uninvited guests out of the Contemporary Arts Center.
“Serena and Alexis chose the Contemporary Arts Center because of its incredible architecture and history. They have instructed [wedding planner] Preston to fill the hall with thousands of dollars worth of crystals and flowers. The hall will be totally transformed.”
The elder Ohanian proposed to Williams last December on a trip to Rome.
