Workers have been spotted setting up an event inside a block in the city’s TriBeCa neighborhood, where rapper Jay-Z owns a luxury home.
A marquee has been erected on a terrace at the building, and elegant bouquets of white flowers and candelabras have been delivered.
It’s rumored just 30 people will be present at the all-white ceremony, including close family members and Beyonce‘s Destiny’s Child bandmates, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams–who are known to be in New York.
The date and time are very special for the couple–four is a number close to both bride and groom.
The rapper, real name Shawn Carter, also owns a nightclub franchise called 40/40 and he and Knowles have matching ‘IV’ tattoos on their ring fingers.
The couple is also planning a second wedding celebration in France on May 4, according to reports.
