Tina Knowles might be 61 years old, but she is one of the happiest newly-married women in the whole world.
The mother of Beyonce and Solange tied the knot to actor Richard Lawson just last week on a yacht in Newport Beach, California, and she’s finally revealing what happened inside the wedding to People Magazine.
The outlet was on hand for the big day, where they got to talk to Tina about all of the amazing festivities, as well as snap some beautiful family photos.
She said of the ceremony and reception:
“It couldn’t have been more perfect.”
“To walk down the aisle and see all my friends and family and to see my handsome man standin’ there, and to know that at 61 you can still find love and have a magical day like that … it was really beautiful.”
Tina walked down the aisle sporting a Romona Keveza dress, and to India.Arie‘s “Ready For Love,” despite having both singers Queen Bey and Solange as her daughters.
She explained that she didn’t want them to perform because “we didn’t want them to work. We wanted them to enjoy the day and not have the pressure of it.”
She also said of why she chose a white wedding dress:
“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,” she says. “You can find love at any age. You just have to go for it.”
As far as what made the two finally decide to get married, we can thank her granddaughter, little Blue Ivy for that. Tina revealed:
“[In September] we went on a boat with Beyoncé and Jay Z and when we came out one night dressed to go to dinner, Blue said, ‘Oh, y’all look beautiful. When are y’all getting married?'”
“Richard said, ‘Oh, Blue, soon. Do you approve?'”
We’re so happy for these two and wish them all the joy in the world. To see the photos from Tina’s big day, click here.
