Beyoncé's Florist Sells Her Out

Alleged new bride Beyoncé is featured on the cover of this week's issue of US Weekly magazine (from a photoshoot from who knows when) which accompanies an insider's take on the nuptials that reportedly took place last Friday in NYC. According to the florist hired by B-Jay to deck out the shindig, the apartment was made up to look like "heaven, like a palace" ... which is so sweet ... and then the florist went running straight to US Weekly to see what she could get for the story:

Beyoncé and Jay-Z ordered 75 boxes of white-and-cream-colored orchids for their April 4 nuptials at the rapper's downtown Manhattan apartment, florist Amy Vongpitaka tells "It made the apartment like a heaven, like a palace," says Vongpitaka, owner of NYC's Amy's Orchids. "You walked in, and it was all flowers — everything white and creamy" ... Vongpitaka says she only had "one week's notice" that they were tying the knot and that the 750 pounds of flowers arrived three days before they said "I Do!" in front of Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and Beyoncé's sister, Solange. The couple also ordered many foot-long garlands to drape around the $8 million, 9,000-square-foot apartment ... "Beyonce requested the specific look of the bloom," Vongpitaka says. The day before the wedding, "I heard Beyoncé was thrilled," Vongpitaka says. "I know she's so happy with this wedding."

This is the latest "confirmation" that the couple were married and yet still no official word from B-Jay themselves. As I've said, I tend to believe that the couple were, in fact, wed last Friday but I think I'll wait until I read the story that the caterer will prolly sell to Star magazine to make a final determination.
