As Beyoncé's creative director, Todd Tourso helps make all of the Bey magic happen. So, when he got married back in August to bride Christina Tang, Beyoncé was on hand with daughter Blue Ivy to make sure the nuptials were even more magical. Though, the wedding went down weeks ago in Aspen, Beyoncé has finally shared her personal snaps from the day on her website, and of course they prominently feature her date for the evening, eldest daughter Blue Ivy who looked adorable in a teal dress.
Of course, there's all sorts of details to marvel over, like this close-up of Beyoncé's newest ink. When she and Jay-Z got married, they both had the Roman number "IV tattooed onto their fingers in lieu of a traditional wedding band. As finger tattoos tend to fade and blur over time, Beyoncé recently had hers touched-up into this symbol, which many speculate is a capital "J" when viewed sideways. The tattoo of the three dots is new, too; many fans think they represent her three children, Blue, Sir and Rumi, but Beyoncé has neither confirmed nor denied this, as she only speaks through gorgeous, cryptic images like:

Does Beyoncé have a phone stuck to her thigh? Resting against her thigh? Strapped to her thigh? There's a phone on her thigh:
Why is she the coolest person on the planet, and can she please teach the rest of us?
And here's the actual big moment from Tourso and Tang's ceremony:
Tourso has been a part of team Beyoncé since 2013, and last year he told us about how he helps turn the singer's many inspirations into a final product.
“Once artists reach a certain level of fame, they simply can’t interact with all of these different people to make their brands cohesive,” Tourso told us. “You need one person with a visual vocabulary to be the sole liaison. You have to take the artist’s ephemeral ideas and try to make them reality and also make them visually forward-thinking.”
“For years, when I’d bring her inspiration boards for shoots, her comment was ‘Why are there only skinny white girls?’ ” he added. “We don’t want her daughter’s generation to grow up feeling that way.”
Beyoncé returned the compliments, saying Tourso was “one of the most fearless human beings I’ve worked with. He understands seemingly unachievable ideas and always finds a way to advance them.”
