Tina Knowles Shares a Rare Wedding Photo for Beyoncé and Jay Z’s Anniversary
April 4 is basically a national holiday for the Beyhive. On this day back in 2008, Beyoncé Knowles got married to her longtime love Jay Z in an intimate, top-secret ceremony at the rapper’s Manhattan penthouse.
Nine years later, Beyoncé’s biggest supporter (and thus honorary leader of the Beyhive), mom Tina Knowles, celebrated the anniversary as only she can: with a rare photo from their wedding day. In the Instagram post, Queen Bey couldn’t look happier, raising her right arm in triumph as she walks back down the aisle with Jay’s hand in her left. The soon-to-be mom-of-three looks absolutely radiant in a strapless gown with dramatic ruching that was designed by her mother.
The shot even captures mom Tina fixing her daughter’s train, which she fessed up to in the caption. “9 years already??? Congratulations to the Carters on their Anniversary,” she wrote alongside the snap.
