Beyoncé Knowles and rapper Jay-Z, two musicians who make up one of the music industry’s biggest power couples, finally tied the knot on Friday, People.com reported.

"It happened earlier this evening," People sources a friend of the couple as saying on Friday night. "Jay wanted it to be a really private affair — close friends and family."

The ceremony reportedly was held at Jay-Z’s Manhattan apartment where gusts such as Destiny’s Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, and Gwyneth Paltrow, were in attendance.

Marriage buzz surrounding the couple began Tuesday when the couple went to get a marriage license in Scarsdale, N.Y.

Dating since 2002, Jay-Z, 38, and Knowles, 26, have drawn wedding speculation for a long time, always keeping quiet about their relationship, People.com reported.
