Wearing a stunning white Givenchy Haute Couture wedding gown, here comes the stunnig bride, stunning and glamorous Kim Kardashian. Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are finally married after tons of pre-wedding festivities.
They are now officially married tonight in a private ceremony in the presence of family and friends in Florence, Italy. The E! network, which runs the Keeping Up With the Kardashians TV series, confirmed the news.
The first picture to emerge shows the pair standing together in front of rows and rows of their six hundred guests among lush trees at the historic Forte di Belvedere, a 16th-century-era fortress atop a hill near the Arno river. Kim is dressed in all white in the first pictured while Kanye is wearing a black tux.
Kris Jenner was seen wiping her eyes with tissue in the front row. 12 Years a Slave director Steve McQueen and Will Smith’s son Jaden were among the celebrities spotted in Florence. Kayne was really too much nervous during the ceremony and was seen swigging obsessively from a bottle of water and shifting his weight from one foot to the other, according to People magazine. “It was funny how nervous he was,” an onlooker told the mag. “He clearly knew the gravity of what he was about to do. This morning he was all smiles, but as it got closer, you could see that the nerves were kicking in. It’s common for most grooms. I’ve seen it all before.”
Fashion designer Valentino Garavani hosted an intimate brunch while Pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr. performed the ceremony, and celebrity event planner Sharon Sacks planned the ceremony. Beyonce didn’t attend the wedding, even though hubby Jay Z was rumoured to be Kanye’s best man.
Kim’s closest friend Larsa Pippen has been snapped inside the venue dressed in a flowing white dress. Writing on Vogue.com, editor André Leon Talley, who was among the 20 guests at the emotional gathering, revealed that Valentino gave the couple a sugar-free cake made with green apples and strawberries, decorated with hearts and the words ‘Kanye and Kim.’He also said: “This is my dietetic cake.” Kanye and Kim started dating in 2012 and the following year Yeezus proposed after an elaborate ceremony inside San Francisco’s AT&T Park. Kardashian was previously married to music producer Damon Thomas from 2000 to 2003 and spent 72 days married to professional basketball player Kris Humphries in 2011.
