Though they also had a ceremony the night before, the couple waited to exchange their wedding bands until they met each other at the altar on Saturday.

We call each other ‘hubbyand ‘wifey’ 每时每刻, but now it’s going to be official, so I think I’m going to cry,” 塞雷娜·威廉姆斯已经为退休“准备”了十多年. “Simon says he’s not going to cry, but he’s cried at home when we just talk about our relationship, so I think he’s going to cry. I think we have a silent bet.

In order to win thesilent bet,” Guobadia said he’s going to bring “太阳镜” with him to the altar.

“哭泣? 不, that doesn’t happen to a Benin man!” joked Guobadia, who grow up in the Benin City of the Edo State of Nigeria.

仪式结束后, Williams changed into a gown by Albina Dyla for their reception ball held at the St. Regis Atlanta. The space was decorated in cream and nude colors. 那里, guests were also treated to a surprise performance by the R&B group Dru Hill.

Throughout the remainder of the night, Williams changed two more times: 第一的, for the bouquet toss, and then again for the after party. For each outfit, she also changed her wigs, all by her brand Go Naked.

“我想, ‘Why not? It’s my last wedding forever,'” 她说.

Like they did on Friday, the couple asked for guests to go unplugged for the duration of the celebration.

It’s important for me because I’ve had another big event in my life before, and all I remember seeing was flashing lights and pictures being taken every single minute,” 威廉姆斯说, who was previously married. “I just really want people to be in the moment. This guest list, everyone there was handpicked by the both of us. These are people that we care about, these are people that we love, people who have supported us, and we really want them there to feel their energy and for us to celebrate our love together.

Williams and Guobadia’s Friday ceremony was all about celebrating the couple’s shared Nigerian ancestry. At the Four Seasons Atlanta, they were joined by 250 客人.

Ever since they announced their engagement in May 2021 after one month of dating, Williams said sheknewshe wantedto honorGuobadia’s culture at their wedding.

I looked up different things about an Edo bride, about the Benin culture, about their ceremonies, just so that I would not be totally green,” 她说. “I wanted to make sure that I was as respectful as possible because I didn’t want to not do anything that wasn’t within tradition, within their culture. So I had to be very, very serious, and I was very adamant that each detail was going to be authentic to their culture. 我学到了很多。”

Guobadia said it all came naturally to Williams. “对于初学者, I was so excited and, 很坦率地说, surprised that she wanted to do the traditional way, because it’s not something you hear every day,” 他说. “To embrace my culture and want to be married in that fashion is something that blows my mind. I think some of the folks we brought on to help us go through the whole ceremony and that whole process were surprised that she knew so much already about the outfits, the clothing, the names and all of that. She’s immersed herself in the culture, I’d say in the last year.

As to what she’s most excited for about married life, Williams said it’s getting to officially call Guobadia herhusband.

It’s just going to be like, ‘My husband, 我的老公, 我的老公,'” 她说. “I’m going to irritate everyone! It’s our last marriage, 好的? We belong together. That is it. It’s a blessing to be able to find your person. It doesn’t happen often.

Before forever, 尽管, comes the honeymoon — the plans for which Guobadia is still keeping under wraps as a surprise to Williams.

He will not tell me where we’re going,” 她说. “All he told me is that we’re going to be gone for about 10 days and that it’s somewhere hot. He said that my assistant knows how to pack me, and that’s all I need to know. 我像, '好的!'”
