According to TMZ and Yahoo Celebrity, Kimye finally tied the knot on Saturday, May 24 at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. Kim, who wore a haute couture Givenchy gown, accessories and veil by Riccardo Tisci, was escorted down the aisle by her 64-year old stepdad, Bruce Jenner. They were preceded by Kris Jenner, who carried 11-month old North West. The baby looked adorable in a Givenchy dress that matched her mom's wedding gown. Kanye, who had a hand in organizing some of the festive events surrounding the wedding, was outfitted in a Givenchy tuxedo that was also done by Tisci.
Among the wedding guests were Serena Williams, Scottie Pippen and his wife, Larsa, Big Sean, Tyga, Common, Rick Rubin, Rachel Roy and Andre Leon Talley. Although invited, Beyonce and Jay Z did not attend the ceremony. Beyonce did, however post a congratulatory note on her Instagram page which said, “Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family.”
Kim's sisters, Kylie, Kendall, Kortney and Khloe served as her bridesmaids, while Kanye's longtime Chicago friends were his groomsmen. The ceremony was reportedly performed by Rich Wilkerson Jr., a North Miami area pastor. After the ceremony, the newly-married couple and their guests were treated to performances by John Legend and Andrea Bocelli. They dined on salmon, chicken, steak and strawberry gelato.
In the days leading up to their lavish wedding, Kim, 33, and Kanye, 36, hosted pre-wedding festivities in Paris. They included a bachelorette party for Kim, which took place at the Eiffel Tower, and an organized tour of the Palace of Versailles, after which the guests were treated to a private performance by Lana Del Rey. She sang three songs as fireworks were set off in the background.
This is Kim's third marriage, and it is Kanye's first. The couple began dating in 2012. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. West!
