Singer Beyoncé Knowles isn't just dating rapper Jay-Z anymore -- she's married to him! A close friend of the couple's told, "It happened earlier this evening. Jay wanted it to be a really private affair -- close friends and family."

Following the ceremony, the longtime couple was joined by Beyonce's mother, Tina Knowles, her father/manager Mathew and sister Solange, as well as friends Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams and Gwyneth Paltrow as they celebrated at a lavish party at the rapper's Tribeca apartment.

DJ Cassidy, a favorite of Jay-Z, was hired to spin. "Cassidy mentioned a week ago that he was really excited for Jay Z and Beyoncé's wedding party to happen," says another source.

Early Friday morning, workers erected a white tent atop the building in Tribeca where Jay-Z owns a penthouse apartment. Not long after, an SUV carrying what seemed to be AV equipment arrived, followed by deliveries of party rentals and flowers.

A source tells PEOPLE that Amy's Orchids was hired to provide 50,000 to 60,000 white orchid blooms from Thailand for a "big party." At the apartment, waiters were seen practicing their service.

Beyoncé, 26, and Jay-Z, 38, have been dating since 2002, and Knowles always kept details about their relationship private --even as they were photographed together on romantic holidays around the world.

Still, in January 2006, Knowles told Cosmopolitan magazine: "I never pictured myself as a bride, but after my sister's wedding, I did start thinking about what kind of wedding I'd want. I don't think I want a big one."

Wedding buzz for the couple began after they got a marriage license at a village hall in Scarsdale, N.Y., on Tuesday.
