Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are now officially together after a weekend of extravagant European events, starting with a brunch hosted by fashion designer Valentino in Paris on Friday, May 23, 2014. Read on to know more about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West who tied the knot at Forte Di Belvedere in Florence, Italy.
PEOPLE reported that Bruce Jenner has given Kim away in the said wedding while Andrea Bocelli sang “Con te Partiró.”
While Kardashian was being walked down the aisle by Bruce Jenner, her mother Kris Jenner was seen in the front row wiping her eyes during the ceremony. Guests reportedly have given two rounds of applause during the ceremony: first when the couple kissed and the second time when the newlyweds were presented.
According to E!, the couple flew guests to Florence for the wedding ceremony after the a private tour of Palace of Versailles and a surprise performance by Lana Del Ray. The city has special meaning to them; Kanye said they conceived their daughter, North, there.
“I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces,” said Kanye in the PEOPLE Magazine report.
“It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, for me the most beautiful in Europe,” he added.
This is Kanye’s first wedding and Kim’s third.
According to jezebel.com, the couple got engaged in October 2013, after Kardashian gave birth to their daughter North. Reportedly, it took the rapper nine years to finally win the woman of his dreams. But, it was in March 2012 when they appeared together at Paris Fashion Week that they were officially an item.
“I think we’ve always had an attraction for each other, but we’ve always been in either other relationships or it just wasn’t the right timing,” said Kardashian to Oprah Winfrey during a 2012 interview.
“One day, I don’t know, it just happened. It kind of like took me by surprise even,” added Kim to in the Oprah interview.
In December 2012, Kardashian announced via her blog that she was pregnant with West’s child.
“It’s true. Kanye and I are expecting a baby. We feel so blessed and lucky and wish that in addition to both of our families, his mom and my dad could be here to celebrate this special time with us,” posted Kardashian in her blog.
She gave birth to her daughter North in June 2013.
West appreciates the Kardashian family for all the support and love they have given him.
“Family time — it’s what Kim gave me,” said West in an interview with the BBC in September 2013, as published in Yahoo.
“She gave me everything. She gave me a family. She gave me a support system,” West added.
Khloe Kardashian also posted a picture, wearing what looked like a bridesmaid’s dress while she looked over the city of Florence. It was captioned “E vissero felici e contenti” in Italian, which translated to “and they lived happily ever after”. Click HERE to see the photo.
