Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are finally married!
The couple tied the knot in an over-the-top ceremony at Florence’s 16th-century Forte di Belvedere on Saturday, May 24. The New York Daily News reports that the couple officially said “I do” around 6 p.m.
The outdoor ceremony was held against a backdrop of multiple walls of flowers, and guests included the Kardashian-Jenner family, Brittny Gastineau, Lala Anthony, Jonathan Cheban, Blac Chyna, Tyga, and Jaden Smith, among others.
According to People magazine, Andrea Bocelli sang as Kardashian was walked down the aisle by step-father Bruce Jenner, and the ceremony was performed by Rich Wilkerson Jr., a pastor from North Miami.

Of course, the couple’s entire wedding weekend has been beyond over-the-top. Their pre-wedding dinner was held at the Palace of Versaille on May 23, where Lana Del Rey performed three songs, magician David Blaine mystified the crowd and guests were able to explore the palace freely as they enjoyed caviar and Ace of Spades champagne.
It seems like just yesterday Kardashian and West were grabbing ice cream in New York City back in April 2012, prompting the media to wonder if their new relationship was nothing more than a showmance — but here we are.
After just over a year together, the couple welcomed their first child, North West, in June 2013, before an October engagement. Much like the couple themselves, their engagement was a much-talked about event. The 36-year-old rapper surprised Kardashian at San Francisco’s AT&T Park as the field’s jumbo screen flashed with the words, “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!”
Today, a million wedding rumors later, Kimye is officially married — and you’re going to have to excuse us because we have some celebratory drinking to do.
