(That’s some regal, Black Love in that picture, isn’t it?) The days of T.O.N.Y. are now over for the baby Knowles! (T.O.N.Y. stands for: The Other Night whY, for those who aren’t familiar with her music)
Congrats are in order for Solange and her longtime love Alan Ferguson, the two tied the knot on Sunday in New Orleans, Louisiana, where the couple has resided, along with Solange’s 10-year-old son, Juelz (from a previous marriage) since 2013. The 28-year-old singer received a birthday gift of a lifetime when 51-year-old Alan asked for her hand in marriage on her birthday this past June, while vacationing in the Caribbean. The lovebirds dated for five years and she even credits him for giving her a sense of balance in her personal life.
The theme was all shades of white, not only were the bride and groom looking great in their ivory jumpsuit and white tux, but every guest was dressed in some shade of white (best dressed goes to Ms. Tina Knowles, she was snatched and highly favored. AMEN!) Solange and Alan arrived to their wedding in the Bywater district riding white painted bicycles with white roses in the basket of the bike that Solange rode on. Solange’s jumpsuit was made by Stephane Rolland and Alan’s white suit was by Lanvin. Of course the family was there to support Solo and Alan on their big day -her mother, Ms. Tina Knowles and her beau, actor Richard Lawson, the entire Carter clan was in attendance and naturally, Solange’s son Daniel Smith Jr., affectionately known as Juelz, was there on his mom’s big day. (No Matthew wasn’t there, y’all know he wasn’t allowed at these type of functions, especially since his new found baby mother used to be Solange’s “friend” Bye trifling, stay home with your wife!) Notable absent was Kelly Rowland, who was a bridesmaid at Solange first wedding -but as you know, she just gave birth to her baby boy Titan, so no one expected her to be there while getting adjusted to motherhood. Also missing Michelle Williams, auntie is probably booked to capacity with the success of her new show on Oxygen “Fix My Choir” (I swear on Black “hair like wool” Jesus, this is not shade.)
