Williams and Bey are pretty tight and icons in their own right. Bey invited Williams on the set to take part in a cameo dancing alongside her in the ‘Sorry‘ music video during the release of her visual album “Lemonade.” So it’s no surprise that Beyoncé came to give Williams blessings on her wedding day.

What a day it was! There’s even a real merry-go-round at the upscale and whimsical wedding. Bey can even be seen riding surfboard styleon one of the horses.
