Looks like Beyoncé isn’t the only Mrs. of the Knowles girls – Solange is officially married! With 200 guests in tow, the soulful singer, 28, wed her director beau, Alan Ferguson, at the spectacular Marigny Opera House this past weekend in New Orleans.
With her signature afro blowing in the wind, the bride donned a cream-coloured jumpsuit with matching cape as she and her husband-to-be, 51, rode matching vintage bicycles to the venue. The bride allowed a pop of colour into her white-washed wedding in the form of bright red lipstick, while her groom gave his white suit and tie an edge with gold-capped black shoes.
For the ceremony itself, Solange wore a simple and classic floor-length white gown with an attached cape. The wedding party also all wore white; sister Beyoncé in a fitted dress and mum Tina Knowles in a long-sleeve gown.
Beyoncé arrived for the ceremony in a black SUV with her husband Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy. Other guests included Solange’s 10-year-old son Daniel Julez.
Ahead of their wedding ceremony, the happy couple celebrated with an intimate pre-wedding bash at Indywood Cinema. Guests were treated to a special screening of the 1975 Diana Ross classic Mahogany, a film particularly close to Solange and Alan’s hearts.
“It was pretty adorable,” the cinema’s owner, Hayley Sampson, told People. “They were talking about how they met and that the bonded (over) this film and then showed everyone the movie.”
A statement from the cinema read, “Solange is getting married to a wonderful man on Sunday and they rented out the theatre for a pre-wedding party. It was beautiful, they were beautiful, Diana Ross is beautiful, love is beautiful.”
This is the second marriage for Solange, who had her son Daniel, 10, with ex-husband Daniel Smith.
