On Sunday, 28-year-old singer Solange Knowles and her 51-year-old video-director boyfriend, Alan Ferguson, had what some may describe as one of the most beautiful celebrity weddings ever.
The couple’s wedding took place in New Orleans in front of family and friends. Donned in a white caped jumpsuit designed by Stephane Rolland and a white suit by Lanvin, Solange and Alan rode vintage bikes to the wedding chapel. When it was time to walk down the aisle, Solange then changed into an Humberto Leon for Kenzo dress.
The theme of the wedding was white. And no one pulled it off better, besides Solange, than her mother, Tina Knowles, in her ruched dress. Others donning white included Beyoncé in a fitted tank dress and platform heels and Janelle Monáe, a close friend of Solange, looking casual chic in a long-sleeved mini dress. But you definitely can’t forget about Blue Ivy, whose ’fro was a miniature version of Aunt Solange’s. Blue was dressed in an age-appropriate frilly, white dress.
According to Vogue, Knowles ditched the traditional walking-down-the-aisle song and opted for an instrumental of Donny Hathaway’s “I Love the Lord, He Heard My Cry.” The night also included performances by Kelela, Questlove and Kindness.
“Everyone I worked with on the wedding are friends who I love,” Solange told Vogue. “Everything was a labor of love.”
Maybe that one person who attempted to break the Internet last week could learn a thing or two about doing it with style.
