Following in her big sister’s footsteps! Solange Knowles is set to marry her longtime boyfriend Alan Ferguson in New Orleans this weekend, sources exclusively confirm to Us Weekly.
The 28-year-old DJ has kept her wedding and even her engagement to the video director a total secret. The nuptials will take place near the home the “Losing You” singer shares with her 10-year-old son Julez in New Orleans.
Though much of the details of the event are being kept under wraps, Us Weekly has learned the weekend’s schedule.
On Friday, Nov. 14, the group will enjoy a movie night together before Saturday’s rehearsal dinner. Then on Sunday, Nov. 16, Knowles and Ferguson will make it official in front of friends and family.
Similarly, Beyonce married Jay Z in April 2008 in a secret ceremony.
This will be the second wedding for the diva’s younger sister, who wed Julez’s father Daniel Smith in February 2004 when she was 17 and he was 19. In a 2007 interview with Essence, she confirmed that she had divorced Smith. Solange continues to co-parent her little boy with her ex.
Ferguson has been close to the Knowles family for years, presenting at the 2012 BET Awards alongside his future sister-in-law. He also attended events with Solange, being photographed as her date. In June, the couple visited Jamaica for Solange’s 28th birthday, with the DJ posting rare photos with her man.
“Luckily, I dated all of the losers ages ago. My love life has been stable for a while,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in March 2014. “It’s a f–ked-up thing — without conflict it’s a lot harder to write interesting songs.”
