Singer, songwriter, model, and DJ Solange Knowles married Alan Ferguson on Sunday, November 16, 2014 in New Orleans.
The couple wed at the Marigny Opera House near the bride’s home.
The biggest talk of the 28-year-old’s wedding was her outfit choices.
The singer had three different outfits for her wedding. One was a jumpsuit by Stéphane Rolland. The jumpsuit was a cream color and included a low neckline. In this outfit, she rode on a vintage bicycle with her groom to the Opera House. The bicycles her and Ferguson rode also had their own touches, including a bouquet of flowers.
Another was a Kenzo dress, which she got married in. This dress was also a favorite to many. It was a simple long, white dress and also included a cape that went all the way to the floor with a little train. The bride dressed up her outfit with gold bracelets and red lipstick.
Sophomore Mya Harris said, “The dress Solange got married in was definitely my favorite outfit she wore on her big day. It was so simple yet so elegant. She made it all come together and it looked absolutely beautiful. I am so happy for her and her new husband!”
The last was another Stéphane Rolland jumpsuit, which she danced the night away in at her reception.
Her 51-year-old groom sported an all white outfit and black shoes with gold on the tips of them for the big day.
The bridesmaid’s dresses were all different styles, but they all were white.
Beyoncé, Solange’s older sister, wore a Ronny Kobo dress as her bridesmaid outfit.
Janelle Monae was also a part of Solange’s wedding party and sported a short, white dress with quarter sleeves.
Beyoncé’s husband and rapper Jay- Z and their daughter Blue Ivy attended the wedding, as well as Tina Knowles, the mother of both Beyoncé and Solange.
Beyoncé posted a handful of pictures from the wedding on her Instagram the day after, including some photos of the bridesmaids and the couple themselves. She also posted a photo with the wedding party putting sparklers into the air as they celebrated the newlyweds.
Solange was recently in the news with her brother-in-law and older sister after footage leaked from a hotel elevator showing Solange hitting Jay-Z multiple times. The incident occurred on May 5 after the Met Gala after-party in the Standard Hotel. Solange apparently fought with her brother-in-law after he got too close to his former business partner’s ex-wife.
However, the two must have put the fight in the past since Jay-Z was seen at the wedding.
Sophomore Emma Pede said, “I am glad that Jay-Z came to the wedding. It kind of gave the idea that the whole fight was resolved and they were able to move on from it. Hopefully everything really is fine and there is no tension between the two.”
This is not Solange’s first marriage, however. In 2004 she married Daniel Smith, the father of their son Julez, but divorced in 2007.
