Last weekend, reports of Solange Knowles' secret New Orleans wedding were leaked online. A source close to the couple told media outlets about a weekend-long event featuring various gatherings in New Orleans and now, everything the source revealed has turned out to be true. After paparazzi photos of Beyoncé, Jay Z, Solange, Blue Ivy, Alan Ferguson, Julez and more surface online, VOGUE shared the first pictures from inside the wedding. They are absolutely gorgeous.
After a "Mahogany" movie night at a local New Orleans theater on Saturday Nov. 15, the glamouros wedding ceremony began. According to the VOGUE exclusive, Solange and her new husband wanted their wedding to be "a labor of love." Knowles wrote in an email to the writer, "Everyone I worked with on the wedding are friends who I love." Through the pictures, it is evident that her simple, family style love affair was executed to perfection.
The official bridesmaids portrait was inspired by the work of Italian contemporary artist, Vanessa Beecroft. The photos were taken by well-known photographer Rog Walker, as every woman in the bridal party wore simple white gowns and fierce, we-know-we-look-good expressions. Beyonce, Janelle Monae and Angie Beyince were pictured.
All of the guests (which did not include her father, Matthew) and bridal party wore white. Solange wore two simple but stunning ensembles to complete her wedding day looks. The first was a fitted white jumpsuit with a deep cut in the front, with a cream cape to drape over her shoulders. She wore this to ride in on matching white bikes with her now husband, 51-year-old Ferguson.

Finally, her wedding dress, pictured below, was designed by Humberto Leon for Kenzo. The floor length gown was accompanied with a different long cape with two gold cuffs on the 28-year-old singers' forearm.
