Kim Kardashian married: Did Kim and Kanye West get married in Paris?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are married. A source tells Life & Style Magazine that the couple officially tied the knot on paper. As most Kimye fans know, Kim and Kanye are having a wedding at the end of the month (on May 24) in Paris. While the two didn't have their actual wedding yet, they are now recognized as Mr. and Mrs. West (assuming that Kim decided to change her surname) legally.

Apparently there is some confusion about where Kim and Kanye said their "I Do's." The couple were forced to get married in The States because of the laws in France which prohibited them from obtaining a marriage license in the country. The law states that foreigners must live in the country for 40 days in order to get married there legally (via Hollywood Life).

So, did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West simply get their official marriage license in Los Angeles or did they actually pull off their spectacle-of-a-wedding in Paris without anyone actually knowing? The answer is quite simple... if you follow Kim's recent travel timeline, you'd see that Kim just flew back to LA from Paris on Thursday. So, she's in the U.S., not in France.

A source says that the marriage license was obtained in Los Angeles over the past couple of days, but the couple has been very quiet about it, which is to be expected. Since their wedding is going to be filmed for television (yes, another E! Kardashian wedding special is on the way), it seems obvious that they want people to be in on the "real" moment with them -- getting a marriage license ahead of time was just protocol. And really, not that big of a deal.

As far as the wedding itself, Kim says it's not going to be enormous. Despite her (now) husband's love for big and loud, Kim and Kanye are apparently going to have a tasteful, toned down wedding. That is, if you believe that.

"People are probably assuming we're going to have this massive wedding, and I think it will be – but intimate. Two hundred people – just all of our closest friends – a special night for us and all the people that really love us and that have supported us," Kim told Vogue Magazine (via Life & Style Magazine). Well, you're all going to have to just wait and see.
