Beyonce, Jay Z share private wedding footage during joint tour

And they're off! Beyonce and Jay Z opened their "On The Run" tour in Miami on Wednesday and gave fans a sneak peek of private family moments.

The pair opened the Sun Life Stadium show with their duet "'03 Bonnie & Clyde," the collaboration that is rumored to have sparked their romance, and showed footage from their wedding on April 4, 2004, as well as home videos of daughter Blue Ivy.


It's the first time visual documentation of the top-secret affair has been released, and we're a little drunk in love with the meaningful morsel. (And it sure sheds a more flattering light on the power couple than that whole elevator debacle with Bey's sister Solange did last month.)

The wedding footage showed Bey in a traditional white gown and veil and Jay Z in a tux. They held hands in front of an altar just before Hova placed a ring on his lady's finger. Soon after that, the newlyweds were seen walking back down the aisle as husband and wife while guest cheered.

The Carters also showed off their matching "IV" finger tattoos, symbolizing their birthdays and wedding day (Her DOB is Sept. 4, 1981; his is Dec. 4, 1969). The roman numeral for "4" is also rumored to be the inspiration for the latter half of their daughter's unique name.

The montage, which played during a mashup of Bey's "Halo" and Jay Z's "Young Forever," also included footage of her in the water with Blue and their now 2-year-daughter's early first steps.

Beyonce, 32, donned several scanty clad costumes (including a fishnet mask and a butt-cheek-revealing onesie) during the concert and also treated fans to a cover of Lauryn Hill's 1998 hit "Ex-Factor," which she's covered at previous concerts too.

The 16-stop tour, which includes hits from their solo careers as well as their collaborations, will stop in Los Angeles on Aug. 2.

We be all night (tweeting). Follow me @NardineSaad.
