Tina Knowles is no longer a single lady! The mother of pop icon Beyoncé married actor Richard Lawson yesterday in a glamorous wedding in Newport Beach, California.

According to Us Weekly, Tina took a page out of daughter Solange's wedding playbook and hosted a chic, all-white affair, not dissimilar from the newlyweds New Orleans wedding to Alan Ferguson just five months ago. The Daily News reports that the bash took place aboard a 140-foot yacht named "Eternity." Tina and Richard reportedly reveled with 300 guests, which, of course, included Beyoncé, Jay Z, Blue Ivy, and Solange.

TMZ caught a glimpse of the happy celebration and photographed Jay Z looking dashing in all-white suit and Beyoncé in a tea-length white lace dress with a matching headband. The singer was spotted at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival earlier yesterday morning, which may have inspired her bohemian wedding attire. Blue Ivy came dressed in wedding-appropriate white, too, but there are no details on whether or not the littlest member of the Knowles family stood in as flower girl.

Of course, Tina and Richard stunned in their own wedding wear. Based on the photo shared on Beyoncé's personal website, seen at top, the bride wore a form-fitting long-sleeve white Romona Keveza gown with an airy overskirt and glam gold belt. She kept her hair in loose waves and completed her bridal look with a bold red lip. Richard wore a monochromatic white tux with a simple white bow tie.

This is the second time Tina is walking down the aisle, after formally being married to Mathew Knowles for more than three decades until they divorced in 2009. In October she shared what it was like to be in love again after her divorce. "I'm at my happiest I've been in a long, long time," she told the Huffington Post.

Congratulations to the happy couple!
