Jay-Z & Beyonce got married
On this day in music, two powerful celebs tied the knot, singer Beyoncé Knowles and rapper Jay-Z. However, they chose not to make a huge deal of the event. It was a private one, and only a handful of friends and family were invited.
The ceremony was followed by a lavish party at the rapper's Tribeca apartment in New York. At the event, Beyoncé's mother Tina Knowles, her father/manager Mathew, her sister Solange, her Destiny's Child mates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay front man, Chris Martin, made an appearance.
A source close to the rapper revealed that DJ Cassidy, a favourite of Jay-Z, was hired to play for the event. "Cassidy mentioned a week ago that he was really excited for Jay Z and Beyoncé's wedding party to happen".
That Friday morning, the workers were running all around the place to get things right for the event. They erected a white tent atop the building in Tribeca, where Jay-Z owns a penthouse apartment. Not long after, an SUV carrying what seemed to be AV equipment arrived, followed by deliveries of party rentals and flowers.
Rumour has it that Amy's Orchids was hired to provide 50,000 to 60,000 white orchid blooms from all the way from Thailand for a "big party." At the apartment, the waiters were also seen practicing their service for the big day.
At the end of the day, the entire event was a success!
