Kim Kardashian Kicks Off Her Wedding Day With Lavish Brunch
Kim kicked off the day at fashion designer Valentino‘s amazing castle, Chateau de Wideville in France on May 23. Andre writes in his blog that multiple photographers waited outside the gates for Kimye to arrive, and they pulled up in black cars at 1pm.
We told you that Kim wore a gorgeous Valentino dress for the occassion. We know that Kim’s sisters were all there, Kris Jenner, and Jonathan Cheban, just to name a few. Andre writes that Valentino toasted the couple at the end of the brunch in both English and Italian: “I would love to toast these two beautiful people here before me,” and then in Italian: “I wish you much success, a lot of love, and a long life.”
Kris also made a toast: “I first want to toast Kim and Kanye, who love each other, and I say for all of us, this is the most beautiful place we’ve ever been.”
Kim was reportedly talking to Valentino and her mother about Pilates the entire time, how funny!
Also, in case you wanted to know what they ate at this magical brunch, reportedly they had: artichoke hearts salad and poached egg with hollandaise, for their first course. Then for their second course they had: baked sea bass with zucchini, a mix of vegetable tempura and saffron risotto Milanese.
The gorgeous castle was purchased by Valentino in 1995 and Kim along with her guests, posted several pics to Instagram of the sprawling grounds. Valentino gave them all a tour at 3pm and baby North West didn’t cry once!
Plus, North was overheard saying “Pa” while eating chocolates at Valentino’s castle. Isn’t that just adorable?
Kim & Kanye Head To Palace of Versailles For Wedding Rehearsal
Then the couple and their guests went back to their hotel and were spotted arriving in black Mercedes Benz SUV’s at 6pm at the Palace of Versailles, for the rehearsal dinner. But by the looks of all the flowers and the way the grounds look, Kim might be getting married there tonight!
The Palace said they were just giving their guests a “tour” but it looks like more than that! TMZ reports that they will be marrying here and even Andre hints that this could be where the wedding is taking place:
“You couldn’t call it a rehearsal dinner—it called for black tie and starts at 7:00 p.m. Destination unknown to every guest, who gets his own personal security and chauffer. Off to the next big moment.”
Kim & Kanye Flying Guests To Florence
We do know that guests will board private planes the following day, May 24, and head to Forte di Belvedere. We told you that Kanye reportedly rented the historical 1590 fort for $410,000.
There is already a massive build out on the premises going down. This is where they are said to be getting married, but if they tie-the-knot at Versailles, perhaps this will be a post-wedding party!
HollywoodLifers, are you excited for Kimye to get married?
