When the greatest athlete of all time, Serena Williams, wed Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian in New Orleans last week, they went big. Very big. And arguably, you kinda can't go small when Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, and Anna Wintour are among your guests.
And now you too can get a piece of that fairy tale wedding experience — or just call it a fairy tale vacation. That's because the home where Serena and her bridesmaids stayed and got prepped for the big day is available for rent on HomeAway.com. And get this: The rate is $1,250 per night, but it sleeps 25.
So if you're doing the math, you can get down like Serena and pals for $50 a night a pop. That should still leave some cash for your classy crew to get smashed on Hurricanes.
Let's look inside the Greek Revival manse: Constructed in the 1880s the eight-bedroom property has five full baths, three half baths, and a separate guest cottage.
Across the eight bedrooms are a total of 18 beds!
The home was recently remodeled.
Think features like glass-enclosed showers, antique china wash basins, and claw-footed bathtubs in the baths.
The home's bright common spaces were made for entertaining.
The three traditional Southern sitting parlors are awash in sunshine, decked with local artwork, and framed by original crown moldings and fireplaces.
The dining room and kitchen get tons of natural light from a wall of windows.
The kitchen has the cherry breakfast bar and appliances of your dreams.
The home is located in the lower Treme, the oldest African-American neighborhood in the country, and it's just a short walk to the French Quarter.
Laissez le bon temps rouler!
