Rucuss staffMay 24, 2014
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are officially husband and wife.
The celebrity couple tied the knot after two years of dating at the 16th-century Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. In front of their closet family and friends, including Blac Chyna, Tyga, Chrissy Teigen, John Legend, LaLa Anthony, Lorraine Schwartz, Q-Tip, Big Sean, Common Rachel Roy and more.
According to People, Bruce Jenner walked Kardashian down the aisle as Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli performed. Rich Wilkerson Jr., a pastor from North Miami, officiated the ceremony.
West was visibly nervous before the nuptials, sipping from a bottle of water and shifting his weight from one foot to the other.
“It was funny how nervous he was,” a source told People. “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.”
A source close to West told Us Weekly the ceremony would be a “princess fairy tale for Kim,” adding, “Kanye thought of every detail.” The fashionable couple’s ceremony was only part of the extravagant memorable weekend.

The couple chose the Italian city because they conceived their daughter North there. They reportedly rented the fort, located next to Florence’s famed Boboli Gardens for $410,000.
Kardashian and West are set to attend a friend’s wedding next and will later embark on their honeymoon sans North. Kardashian’s veil had its own car.
