Solange Knowles is a married woman! Beyoncé’s younger sister, 28, married music producer Alan Ferguson, 51, in New Orleans over the weekend. The two tied the knot in an intimate ceremony surrounded by 100 of their closest friends and family.
The guest list, which included Beyoncé, Jay Z, Blue Ivy, and mom Tina Knowles, all donned white ensembles. Jay wore a white suit while Beyoncé, Blue and Tina wore white dresses. Solange and Ferguson have been living in New Orleans for some time after moving from Brooklyn.
Vogue released the first pictures of the newlyweds and Solange’s bridal party. The bride wore a custom Humberto Leon for Kenzo dress, which featured a cape and gold bangle bracelets. Knowles and the designer had been seen out around New Orleans for months leading up to the ceremony.
The bride told Vogue, "Everyone I worked with on the wedding are friends who I love. Everything was a labor of love."
Their celebration was filled with weekend festivities leading up to the big day. The couple-to-be were seen bicycling around Nola in matching white.
The groom Alan Ferguson is an established music producer who has worked with artists including Katy Perry, Fall Out Boy, Gym Class Heroes, Nelly Furtado and his now family—Bey and Jay.
This will be the second marriage for Solange who was previously married to Daniel Julez. The two share a son who is now 7. Knowles opened up about life with her son as a single mom after she was divorced so young.
"In a lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27. Just going through a marriage and a divorce—which I essentially did by 21—will give you an insane amount of perspective on life." she revealed to Harper’s Bazaar.
After years of heartbreak, Solange is a happily married woman.
"Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago. My love life has been stable for a while. It’s a f—cked up thing—without conflict it’s a lot harder to write interesting songs."
Congrats to the happy couple and cheers to years filled of musically induced celebrations.
