Of course, if anyone was going to take the ‘most flawless wedding’ award away from Solange, it would be her mom, Tina Knowles!
Tina tied the knot with actor Richard Lawson on 12 April on a yacht in California with an all-white wedding celebration. It was a family affair with Beyoncé, Solange, Kelly Rowland, Jay Z and Blue Ivy in attendance. And apparently the tiny tot was instrumental to the couple’s decision to get married.
‘[In September] we went on a boat with Beyoncé and Jay Z for her birthday, and when we came out one night dressed to go to dinner, Blue said, “Oh, ya’ll look beautiful. When are ya’ll getting married?” and Richard said, “Oh, Blue, soon. Do you approve?” And she said yes,’ Tina told People magazine. ‘That’s the first time we talked seriously about getting married.’
There’s also a significant reason why everyone dressed in white: ‘It was important to me to have a wedding and walk in white, because sometimes we feel that at a certain age you should act a certain way. You can find love at any age. You just have to go for it,’ said Tina.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
Bey was kind enough to put some photos of the wedding on her site, Beyonce.com. You can stare at them in awe below:
