NEW ORLEANS (The Washington Post)—Solange Knowles arrived at her wedding via white bridal beach cruiser, in a cream Stephane Rolland jumpsuit, a New Orleans vision of Princess Amidala, bred in Houston, refined in Brooklyn, and adopted by the Big Easy.

Over the weekend, she married her longtime beau, video director Alan Ferguson. Vogue obtained exclusive pictures of the couple, who wed at Marigny Opera House in New Orleans.

Nearly 10 years ago, Solange was practically a child bride. Her sister, Beyoncé, their close friend (and Destiny’s Child member) Kelly Rowland, and cousin Angie Beyince, filled the role of traditional bridesmaids. Their service was marked by gaudy embellished mauve sheaths and a gloss of naïveté. Solange was 17 at the time, and still becoming acquainted with motherhood. She and Daniel Smith, the father of her son Juelz, divorced when she was 21.
