(Newser) – Solange Knowles got married to Alan Ferguson, 51, in New Orleans yesterday, and her wedding was just about everything you'd expect from the sister of Beyonce. She wore a futuristic-looking white gown complete with cape, plus some very intense gold cuffs, according to pictures featured in Vogue. The rest of her female family members also wore white (and extremely serious expressions) in the official wedding portraits; in fact, Yahoo reports, Solange asked all the guests to wear white.

The 28-year-old arrived at the ceremony on a white bicycle, wearing a white jumpsuit. Thus, the nuptials inspired such headlines as "Solange Had an Aesthetically Superior Wedding" and "Solange Breaks All the Fashion Rules at Her Wedding." Other details that probably differentiate her wedding from yours: At the rehearsal dinner, there was a mini-documentary about Knowles' and Ferguson's courtship, plus a screening of the movie they saw on their first date; and Jay Z was in attendance, Vanity Fair reports ... despite that whole elevator incident.
