It couldn’t have been more perfect -Tina Knowles
To walk down the aisle and see all my friends and family and to see my handsome man standing there, and to know that at 61 you can still find love and have a magical day like that…it was really beautiful-Tina Knowles
Earlier this month, Beyonce’s mom Tina Knowles, 61, tied the knot with her actor beau and longtime friend actor Richard Lawson, 69.
Since then, more pictures of the lavish all-white wedding have surfaced where, in attendance-proof of love and life has grown and gone on right before our very own eyes:
Kelly Rowland was in attendance with her husband Tim Witherspoon and their 5-month old Titan.
Solange and her husband-Alan Ferguson were in attendance, as was Beyonce, Jay Z and their 3 year-old daughter Blue Ivy along with Solange’s growing 10 year-old boy Julez:

Friends for over three decades, and having recently rekindled their connection turned bond less than two years ago, within fours months, Knowles knew:
This is somebody that I could really spend the rest of my life with
Having finalized her divorce from Beyone’s dad: Matthew Knowles in 2011, Tina doubted she would ever find love again.
It was important to me to have a wedding and walk in white, because sometimes we feel that at a certain age you should act a certain way. You can find love at any age. You just have to go for it-Tina Knowles
Well, she did. And chose the perfect wedding song. “I Am Ready For Love” by India Arie (playing atop the OSF big screen).
Despite the chart-topping members of her family being right there with her, instead of performing for she and her husband on their big day, she thought it best they enjoy the moment with her.
We didn’t want them to work. We wanted them to enjoy the day and not have the pressure of it -Tina Knowles
