Last Friday, Serena Williams flew to Miami with her sisters Venus, Lyn and Isha Williams, her mum and 20 of her loved ones and close pals for a long bridal shower weekend at 1 Hotel and Homes South Beach.
The mama-to-be checked in on Friday and she kicked off the festivities with her girl pal on Saturday morning, according to PEOPLE. They started with a relaxing yoga session and meditation class followed by foot massages in an air-conditioned poolside cabana by the hotel’s Bamford Haybarn Spa.
“The shower really reflected Serena’s girlie and detail-oriented personality,” Serena’s friend and L.A. event planner Val Vogt of VLV Group told PEOPLE exclusively. “There were lots of surprises for her throughout the weekend.” Adds her longtime friend Lara Shriftman: “It was a really magical weekend with a lot of love for Serena.”
