Wedding bells are in air!

Serena Williams is set to marry longtime boyfriend-turned-fiancé Alexis Ohanian at the New Orleans’ Contemporary Arts Center today. Williams tried to keep her wedding venue and details under wraps by keeping guests for today’s main event in the dark – telling them cars will be sent to their hotels to “collect them,” reports Page Six.

But now that specifics about the ceremony are out, Serena’s made one thing very clear: fans shouldn’t count on seeing pictures from the celebration just yet because she’s banning guests from sharing any.

According to reports, guests will not be allowed to post any photos or videos of the event on their social media. Why? Because Williams has reportedly signed a deal with Vogue, giving them exclusive rights to flicks of her nuptials. 

Celebrity guests expected to attend today’s ceremony include her sister, Venus Williams, Kelly Rowland, Lala Anthony, Ciara, Eva Longoria, Kris Jenner and more. 

The couple has been counting down the days until their wedding for quite some time. In fact, they uploaded a photo to the 'Gram and captioned it with one simple question: "but are you ready?"

Hopefully that's been answered because today the day.

Congratualtions, Serena!

... but are you ready?
