Kanye West and Kim Kardashian Are Married
written by Rap-Up
It’s official. Kanye West and Kim Kardashian tied the knot on Saturday in Florence, Italy.
The rapper, 36, and reality star, 33, wed in front of family and friends in a lavish ceremony at 16th-century Fort di Belvedere.
According to People, Bruce Jenner walked his stepdaughter 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,” an insider tells 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.”
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.
Kim’s mother and siblings were in attendance along with West’s father, Big Sean, Common, Tyga, and John Legend and wife Chrissy Teigen.
This is the first marriage for West and the third for Kardashian. The couple began dating in 2012 and got engaged in October 2013 at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.
The wedding caps off a week of festivities. On Friday evening, Lana Del Rey serenaded the couple during a pre-wedding dinner and earlier in the day, designer Valentino hosted a brunch for them at his 17th-century residence.
