Tina Knowles, Richard Lawson,

Congratulations are in order for Beyoncé's mom!

Tina Knowles and Richard Lawson tied the knot Sunday aboard yacht in California. In a picture taken by Cliff Watts, both Tina and her new husband are elegantly dressed in white for the exciting occasion. Tina's dress was designed by Romona Keveza.

About 300 people, including Solange, Jay Z, Beyoncé and Blue Ivy, attended the all-white affair, according to reports. The superyacht, which goes by the name Eternity, cruised around Newport Beach for the entire affair. This is the second marriage for Tina, who was previously married to Matthew Knowles.

After divorcing in December 2011, Tina, 61, found love again with Richard, 67, who is best known for his work on All My Children and the 1982 film, Poltergeist. It has been a busy past few months for the Knowles clan because in November Solange also tied the knot to her now-husband, Alan Ferguson. Everyone who attended that affair in New Orleans also had to wear white.

About 100 people, including her closest family, witnessed the longtime lovers become husband and wife. Their wedding weekend included several festivities, all of which began that Friday night. Solange, who donned a gorgeous, modern bridal-style dress, was spotted walking and holding hands with her beau as they headed towards the Indywood Cinema theatre, while Bey was seen entering the building by herself. Guests reportedly watched Mahogany starring Diana Ross.

This was the second marriage for Solange, who was previously wed to Daniel Smith. In an interview with Harper's Bazaar, she opened up about her young marriage and why she and her new husband chose to move down south to NoLa.

"In a lot of ways, emotionally and mentally, I feel far older than 27. Just going through a marriage and a divorce—which I essentially did by 21—will give you an insane amount of perspective on life," she shared with the women's magazine.

Ferguson is an American music video director who has worked with Katy PerryFall Out BoyGym Class HeroesNelly Fertado, and, of course, Beyoncé and Jay Z.

Congratulations again to the happy couple!
