After much anticipation and fanfare the couple and the parents of North West are now husband and wife. While no pictures or video were released there have been reports from all of the usual celebrity news outlets as to some of the details of the lavish wedding ceremony.
We knew it would have to be nothing less over-the-top after that extraordinary wedding proposal at the AT&T Park baseball stadium in San Francisco. And it’s not every day that a couple has their pre-wedding festivities in Paris and then flies all of their guests to Italy.
The location at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy was equally romantic and historic. To the world at large it is an iconic fortress built during Renaissance times for the powerful and wealthy Medici family. But it was Kanye West who revealed in a recent interview that he and his future wife had chosen the city of Florence for their wedding because that’s where they conceived their daughter.
As for the guests, there was much ado about who bailed and who didn’t. Beyonce and Jay Z, for instance, did not attend, and neither did Kim Kardashian’s brother Rob.
But nonetheless, as E!News reports the couple was surrounded by family and friends, including Bruce Jenner who walked his step daughter down the aisle.
In all there were some 200 guests at the ceremony and the officiant was a North Miami pastor, Rich Wilkerson Jr.
Kept under wraps, literally, it’s now being reported that Kim Kardasians’s wedding dress was a Givenchy Haute Couture gown and designed by her friend, Riccardo Tisc. He also designed Kanye West’s suit.
It was previously reported that Lana Del Rey sang at the couple’s pre-wedding celebration which was held in Paris the night before at the Palace of Versailles. Kim Kardashian has said publicly that the singer-songwriter is one of her favorite singer.
Now for the wedding ceremony itself they had none other than superstar tenor Andrea Bocelli, who himself recently got married. He sang ‘Con te Partiró.’
As for the reception, it was yet another music superstar, John Legend, performing his smash hit single, ‘All of Me.’ It was Kanye West who executive-produced the album on which the song appears. Legend wrote the song for his own wife, Chrissy Teigan whom he also married in Italy.
As for when and where we will see video and photo, we can be certain only of one thing, it will be on the terms of this famous and now married couple known as Kimye!
