Solange Knowles danced through the streets of New Orleans after her wedding.
The 28-year-old singer tied the knot with videographer Alan Ferguson on Sunday (16.11.14) and after the ceremony and a sit-down dinner, the couple loaded their guests onto three party buses, which drove to Esplanade Street, where a live band played and the group danced for 10 blocks before making their way to the New Orleans Museum of Art for a second reception.
A source said: ''Beyonce and Jay Z were totally into it and so affectionate. They both kept putting their hands on each other's butts and they were dancing up a storm. Beyonce and Jay Z were so friendly to everyone and very gracious. They seemed so genuinely happy. They were having the best night.''
The happy couple - who live in New Orleans with Solange's son Julez, 10, from a previous marriage - arrived at the Holy Trinity Church on white bicycles, but the 51-year-old groom had to walk part of the way because he got a flat tire, much to their amusement.
The source told Us Weekly magazine: ''They were giggling about it and didn't seem bothered at all. Passers-by were congratulating them, and they were overjoyed.''
After the ceremony, the venue - which is also known as the Marigny Opera House - was transformed for the reception, where guests were seated on two long tables for a four-course dinner which included shrimp and grits, oyster and artichoke bisque, paupiette de poulet, and bread pudding and pineapple foster for dessert.
Solange donned two edgy looks for the wedding - a Stephane Rolland jumpsuit with an attached cape and Humberto Leon for Kenzo floor-length gown and cape - and insiders say the DJ was determined her big day would be ''all about'' music and fashion.
A source said: ''The weekend was exactly what Solange wanted, friends and family in her favourite town. It was all about the fashion, it was all about the look and the music, because that's important to her. Alan's a great man and has made her very happy.''
