A celebrity wedding always calls for a glamorous wedding gown or, in Simone Biles’ case, four glamorous wedding gowns. When the American gymnast married her longtime love Jonathan Owens in Cabo in May 2023, she wore not one, but four custom looks

When it came to walking down the aisle, Biles opted for a classic ballgown silhouette in the form of our Gimaya gown, which had been custom-made for her. It featured a classic corset with a flowing box-pleated skirt, 3D floral lace detail and a slit up the leg.

For the reception, the bride changed into a more fitted design Maya, a semi-sheer mermaid gown, which featured just as much beautiful floral appliqué detail. And finally, when it came to dancing the night away, she opted for Jill a long, embellished dress, a custom version of one of our popular A-line design

Sloane Stevens

From the court to the altar, we ensure you’re at the center of attention and feeling like your best self. Take it from Sloane Stevens, professional tennis player and former US Open champion, who chose two Galia gowns to don on her wedding day early last year

A custom, hand-embellished ballgown met an exquisite cathedral veil and cascading cape, the work of seven talented designers in our atelier. Not only was her look tailored to complement her physique, it allowed for her individuality to shine through with personalized enhancements and unique elements.

For champions like Stevens, one is ever enough—as night fell, she stunned in our elegant Eve gown, complete with a sleek updo and playful tulle veil. From pearls to crystals to lace, versatility was the star as she shone in both grandiose and curve-hugging silhouettes, a reaffirmation that the Galia bride can really do it all

Tara Davis-Woodhall

When Olympic athlete Tara Davis-Woodhall started planning her wedding in 2021, she knew it would be a day of sophisticated grace, and there was no better way to walk down the aisle than in an eye-catching gown

In the midst of lush vineyards and enveloped by crisp fall air, Davis-Woodhall stunned in the whimsical Poet dress, enhancing her curves with a plunging corset atop a double-tiered tulle skirt and embellished with embroidered organza flowers against sheer sleeves. Leaping into elegance, the track and field star paired her ballgown with a draping train viel, capturing guests and photographers during a day of bridal bliss. With a gown fit for a fairytale, it was the ultimate enhancement to her dreamy wedding—and the perfect fit from head to toe.

Serena Williams

A winner through and through, Serena Williams is the pinnacle of confidence and grace. A woman like her needs no introduction; from the chaos of the court to the lights of the red carpet, Williams’ ability to capture the camera is like no other, and the 2016 Vanity Fair Oscars after party proved no exception

Surrounded by stars, the tennis mogul’s athletic ability shone through her perfectly-toned physique, seamlessly enhanced by our subtly-sultry Morgan gown. A sheer midriff meets champagne lace with a fitted silhouette ideal for showing off any athlete’s graceful strength, and if you’re anything like Williams, you’re sure to turn heads no matter the occasion

At Galia Lahav, we believe that every bride deserves a dress that makes them feel their absolute best. Our commitment to sculpted elegance, custom haute couture fit, and attention to detail ensures that our gowns are not just clothing—they’re expressions of self-assured beauty. We are thrilled to have played a part in Sloane, Tara, and Serena’s bridal journeys and excited to embark on similar journeys with you. Let Galia Lahav be your partner in celebrating your unique physique and style on your special day.
