Global power couple Beyoncé and Jay-Z exchanged their top-secret wedding vows with 40 of their closest family and friends back in April of 2008. Beyoncé said "I do" to her love of six years in a lavish Tribeca penthouse owned by her doting hip-hop groom. Over 70,000 white dendrobium orchids lined the white tent that was placed inside of the massive 13,500 square foot space, creating a luxurious ambiance to say the least. Hip-hop classics filled the stereos of the reception, and guests were said to be dancing until much after 5am the next morning.
