Affectionately referred to as Kimye by the media, fashion designer and reality star, Kim Kardashian, and singer and rapper Kanye West, have finally said “I Do” in the picturesque Florence. The couple, who are parents to their 11 month old daughter, North West, have wed in a spectacular and opulent event in the historical Forte di Belvedere. West had proposed to the reality star known for “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” in October of last year. Rich Wilkerson Jr., Miami pastor, officiated the ceremony, and Kim was reportedly serenaded by the Italian singer Andrea Bocelli.
Bruce Jenner, Kim’s step-dad walked her down the aisle and if the wedding was such a luxuriant affair, you can rest assured that the days adding up to the wedding were no less stunning and lustreless. The weekend before the wedding, the a-listed couple, enjoyed luncheon at the home of the Italian fashion designer, Valentino Garavani. A celebrity and star encrusted dinner was also thrown at the Chateau de Versailles, where ‘Video Games’ crooner, Lana Del Rey performed.
And Instagram is witness to the head spinning bachelorette party that Kim had. And though the fans and the followers of the couple as well as the paparazzi were on a wild goose chase when it came to guessing the exact location of the wedding, it was finally divulged that it would be Florence, Italy.
By Saturday, the media, paparazzi and the mad fans of Kimye and celebrities galore descended on Florence’s airports to catch a glimpse of the celebrity couple and their entourage, which consisted of some very pretty faces and bodies (Kim’s sisters we mean)! Among the celebrities who could make it to the much anticipated wedding of 2014, John Legend, Bug Sean, Crissy Teigan and Jaden Smith (who came as Kylie Jenner’s date) were spotted.
The 36 year old groom was reportedly a nervous groom and we can’t blame him given that it is his first wedding to the third time married Kim Kardashian. The couple exchanged their vows and eyewitness accounts have said that both were seem beaming at the event, while the mother of the bride, Kris Jenner was misty eyed as she sat at the front row.
The 33 year old Kim wore a customised Givenchy gown, designed by the creative director Riccardo Tisci. Even the little celebrity baby North West also wore her very own Givenchy as her father looked dapper in a Givenchy tuxedo by Riccardo Tisci. And if you are wondering why of all the places in the world, the couple chose Florence, then brace yourself for the little secret that Kanye let out and revealed that they chose Florence as the venue of their wedding because their baby North West was conceived here!
