Serena Williams is known for making waves on the tennis court and of late, for documenting her life raising two daughters under seven. It is no secret that the athlete does it in style, but now we see that Serena is also a pro bridesmaid, and the proof is in these stunning unearthed photos. 

In 2019 the Grand Slam singles champ, 42, was a stunning bridesmaid for her fellow tennis player friend Caroline Wozniacki when she married American former basketball player David Lee.

Serena posed for a photo on stone steps alongside four other bridesmaids who all wore sage green gowns in varying cuts. The tennis player looked like an ethereal vision in a floor-length number with a scooping neckline and skinny straps.

The dress gathered at the waist to cinch in her silhouette and Serena was seen holding a beautiful bouquet of flowers in white and pale blue. Her hair was styled in gorgeous mermaid curls and her makeup was kept neutral.

The bride looked stunning in a strapless gown with a full skirt covered in floral lace before slipping into a figure-hugging number covered in silver sequins for the evening do. "So thankful to have these incredible women in my life! They have been with me through life and I am so excited to see where the next adventures takes us!," the bride said as she paid tribute to her bridesmaids on Instagram.

Serena was the star of her own show in 2017. She married her beau in a gorgeous Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress at the Contemporary Art Center of New Orleans.

"And everything that I have done, everything that I am so proud of in my career, and in my life, for the last 34 years, pales in comparison to what we’re doing today. And I am so grateful, and I am so in love."
