New Orleans was in for a real treat today! Solange Knowles married fiancé Alan Ferguson in the Big Easy this afternoon. The songstress and video director celebrated their union with about 100 family and friends, including sister Beyoncé, niece Blue Ivy, brother-in-law Jay Z, and mother Tina Knowles according to E! News.
Always one to push the envelope with her style, the bride skipped a classic wedding dress, and instead rocked a white Stephane Rolland jumpsuit with a plunging neckline and cape (above) for her arrival and a Humberto Leon for Kenzo dress (below) down the aisle according to Vogue. The groom complemented Knowles in a dapper all-white Lanvin suit.
The happy couple took an unusual, but absolutely adorable mode of transportation to the venue, riding bicycles to the Holy Trinity Church in the Bywater area of NOLA. Us Weekly reports that the church was decorated with oversized hanging lights and four light-strewn trees — an absolute sight to behold.
Not surprisingly, the Knowles-Carter clan were well-dressed wedding guests with Beyoncé wearing a figure-skimming midi dress and sky-high platform pumps, Jay Z in a cream suit and bow tie, and Blue Ivy in a cute tulle-hem dress.

Before the big day, the duo took in the classic film Mahogany with 50 close friends and family on Friday night, followed by a rehearsal dinner on Saturday.
The newlyweds now call Louisiana their home, where they reside with Knowles's 10-year-old son Julez, who reportedly played an important role in the nuptials.
This marks the "Losing You" singer's second marriage. Earlier this year, Knowles opened up to Harper's Bazaar about her love life and how going through a divorce at a young age changed her. "In a lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27," she said. "Just going through a marriage and a divorce — which I essentially did by 21 — will give you an insane amount of perspective on life."
She added of her relationship with Ferguson, "Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago. My love life has been stable for a while."
