Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Get Married In Florence

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have officially tied the knot.

Here’s how it went down: The talked-about couple was married May 24 at Florence’s historic Forte di Belvedere, built in the 1590s on a hill nearby the Arno River, while being serenaded by world-renowned tenor Andrea Bocelli. They exchanged vows, then West gave a 15-minute speech. Guests enjoyed a fireworks show, and then West’s longtime friend John Legend toasted the couple and performed hits like “Ordinary People” and “All of Me.”

Baby North West wore a custom-made Givenchy dress that matched her mother’s. (Uh-huh, honey.)

Guests included Kris, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Khloé and Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick, Jonathan Cheban, Rachel Roy, John Legend, Chrissy Teigan, producers Rick Rubin and Chris Julian, Q-Tip, Common, Yasiin Bey, Fonzworth Bentley, Big Sean, Tyga and Jaden Smith. During the reception, they posed for snapshots inside a photo booth and danced to a playlist that was part vintage soul (Etta James‘ “At Last” was the couple’s first-dance song) and part raunchy hip-hop (Color Me Badd‘s “I Wanna Sex You Up”). ‘Ye would even rap to a few songs.

Here’s to hoping that he actually performed his verse when his remix of Beyonce‘s “Drunk In Love” remix came on.

Even the pre-wedding ceremony would top West’s extravagant proposal. The night before the wedding, friends and family enjoyed a private tour at the Palace of Versailles, via carriage rides and on horses. A full orchestra was playing inside. West then surprised Kardashian with, as rumored, a performance by Lana Del Rey, including of her hit “Summertime Sadness.” When it started raining, fireworks went off and guests started dancing in the rain to West and Jay Z‘s “Paris.”

They balled so hard, muhfuckas tried to find them – again, and again, and again. See pictures from the royal festivities below.
