Solange Knowles and her then-fiance Alan Ferguson were seen riding vintage white painted bikes in the French Quarter on their way to their wedding at the Marigny Opera House in New Orleans on Sunday. Thankfully they weren't knocked off their bikes by a speeding motorist. Seriously, who rides bicycles to a wedding?
The spectacle of a bride and groom riding bicycles to their wedding was the talk of the town. Photos from the wedding are still "trending" on social media platform Twitter.com.
After the non-traditional wedding, Solange, 28, and Allan, 51, joined singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter and her husband, rap mogul Shawn "Jay Z" Carter-Knowles, for a celebration in the streets that resembled a traditional New Orleans funeral parade.
The symbolism of fusing a wedding celebration with the Louisiana mourning cultural traditions was not lost on many observers who saw the festivities as a bad sign for the future of Solange and Alan's marriage -- and maybe Beyonce and Jay Z's marriage, as well.
