Alex Ohanian proposed Serena last year, 18 months after the pair met by chance at a cafe in Rome. As Serena recalls, the proposal was as romantic as possible and was just as thoughtfully organized.
‘I came home one day to find my bags already packed for me, and I had absolutely no idea where I was going until I got on the flight,’
Serena told Vogue.
‘Alexis flew me out to Rome, back to the exact table where we’d met. We were both really nervous but also excited to take this huge step. It was such a beautiful moment.’
