“KIMYE” aka KIM KARDASHIAN and KANYE WEST got married in Florence, Italy on Saturday, at a landmark called the Forte di Belvedere, which overlooks the city. E! Online says the wedding cost around $2.8 million.
The festivities actually began Friday night with a rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles in Paris, France. LANA DEL REY was there to perform live.
During the dinner, Kanye reportedly commented about all the talented people in the room. Kim remarked that there were also a lot of BEAUTIFUL people, to which Kanye replied, quote, “Yeah, but Kim’s way more beautiful than I am talented.”
(Figures it would matter to Kim how beautiful the people at her wedding are. It’s sad, and gross and pathetic and infuriating all at the same time.)
But she wasn’t the only performer on hand that weekend.
During the ceremony, ANDREA BOCELLI sang “Con te Partiro” as Kim walked down the aisle. She was escorted by her stepfather BRUCE JENNER. Walking in front of them was KRIS JENNER with Kim and Kanye’s daughter North.
They made The Big Mistake in front of a huge wall of flowers, kind of like the one Kanye gave Kim for Mother’s Day. A source says the vows were, quote, “intimate and spoken softly.” But don’t worry, Kanye would have his say later.
At the reception, guests sat at a 224-foot marble table overlooking the Florence skyline. The menu included chicken, steak, salmon and pasta . . . followed by a seven-foot wedding cake.
There were about 200 guests, including Common, Jaden Smith, magician David Blaine, rapper Tyga, Brittny Gastineau, “12 Years a Slave” director Steve McQueen, Serena Williams, Scottie Pippen, Carmelo and Lala Anthony, Q-Tip and “Girls Gone Wild” scumbag Joe Francis.
BEYONCÉ and JAY Z were NO SHOWS. They reportedly spent the weekend in the Hamptons.
But Beyoncé posted a picture of Kim, Kanye and North on Instagram, along with the caption, “Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family.”
The couple’s first dance was to a mashup of Etta James’ “At Last” and Otis Redding’s “These Arms of Mine” and “Tenderness” . . . which culminated in some live rapping by Kanye.
They also danced to JOHN LEGEND’S “All of Me” . . . which Legend performed LIVE. BIG SEAN also reportedly took the mic at some point.
Kris Jenner made a, quote, “big, emotional speech” . . . but Kanye topped her with a 20 MINUTE SPEECH in which he called the Kardashian family, quote, “the most remarkable people of our time.” He added that they can, quote, “make the world a better place.”
He also rambled about being famous . . . quote, “I am defined by being a celebrity . . . the world is our altar.”
He added, quote, “They feel like it’s okay to put you on the tabloid covers to sell your image, to use you in an ‘SNL’ spoof. We don’t negotiate. We’re not like that. We’re not stupid.”
Kim and Kanye are now off on a mini-honeymoon somewhere in Europe without their daughter North. They’re expected to attend the wedding of Kanye’s stylist next weekend in Prague.
