Tina Knowles-Lawson Found True Love With A Man She’s Known For 30 Years


Tina Knowles described her wedding to actor Richard Lawson in one word: perfect.

The blushing bride said “I do” to her hubby aboard a yacht in Newport, Beach California on April 12 in front of close friends and family.

Knowles, who said she will take her husband’s last name, continued the all-white attire tradition her daughters started with their weddings, and wore a floor-length gown from designer Romana Keveza.

In an interview with PEOPLE, Knowles admits that after her divorce from Matthew Knowles was finalized in 2011, she doubted if she could find love, but was determined to be happy.

Tina says she’s known Richard, 68, for nearly 30 years, but its only been in the last 18 months the two rekindled their relationship. Within just a few months, Beyonce and Solange’s mother knew she could spend the rest of her life with him.

“To walk down the aisle and see all my friends and family and to see my handsome man standing there, and to know that at 61 you can still find love and have a magical day like that … it was really beautiful,” says Knowles-Lawson.

Tina didn’t ask her daughters to perform. Their only task was to have fun.

Congrats to Tina and Richard.
