Ace American tennis player Alison Riske tied the knot with long-term partner Stephen Amritraj, the son of former Indian Davis Cup player and captain Anand Amritraj on July 21. The wedding that took place in Alison’s hometown of Pittsburgh was a church wedding, followed by a party to remember.
Alison looks like a princess in her white wedding gown and Stephen looks dapper in the white tuxedo. What a lovely pair!
After the wedding, Alison took to Twitter to share a video of her dancing to Katrina Kaif’s hit song Nachde Ne Saare from Baar Baar Dekho with her sister Sarah. She wrote, “Officially an Amritraj! I'm the luckiest lady because of @stephenamritraj! where all my new Indian followers at??!! here's a little Bollywood to try to win over your affection!”

Well, we have to say, Alison and her sister totally nailed it. Those are some move on point. Bollywood, you watching?
Alison also revealed how she and sister Sarah picked a Bollywood number. In a long Instagram caption, she wrote, “Since this has come to be a fan favorite, (🤣🕺🏼), I want to share the story of how it came to be! My sister, Sarah, has an Indian customer whose wife, Gayatri, helped us. Gayatri chose the song and came up with the choreography for us. Sarah would visit each month for business and sneak in a dance lesson, learn the moves, slow them down, and then send them to me via text while I was on the road! I started learning it during Dubai in February. We practiced it together for the first time 6 days ago. It was the perfect surprise for @stephenamritraj and his wonderful family! Thanks to @prakashamritraj & @jenny_brady7 for keeping the secret- they were the only ones who knew- along with my family of course! Blessed to be an Amritraj!💞🇺🇸🇮🇳❤️you can watch the rest on my Twitter. Ps. Yes, my sis is pretty kickass.🔥”
Alison and Stephen started dating sometime in 2014, while they got engaged in June 2016. Cousin Prakash Amritraj made the news Insta-official by sharing a picture of Alison and Stephen with him where Alison was seen flaunting her ring. He wrote, “Absolutely NOT possible for me to be any happier for these two! @riske4rewards you're my sister now and @chiefsteviea best win of your life brother 😁. #AliIsNotGivingPeopleTheFinger #SheIsSayingKissTheRockOrKissMyAss 😂.. #MrAndMrsStephenAmritraj 😃🙌🏾👏🏾🙏🏾”
Currently, Stephen is the Chief Tennis Officer at Universal Tennis Rating. In an interview on the Universal Tennis website, Stephen said, “Tennis has given me everything in my life. From lifelong friends and a sense of purpose to a college scholarship at Duke University and global education on the tour to dreams coming true in working for American tennis and meeting my future wife, Alison. I have seen almost every side of it as a son to a junior, collegiate, and professional player to a coach to a promoter to an administrator to a fiancée. I’ve been in it my whole life and will be in it for the rest of my life.”
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
