Kanye West & Kim Kardashian Getting Married — See The Gorgeous Details
What a fairytale! Kim must have felt like a royal princess on May 24, as her closest family and friends joined her in Florence, Italy for her wedding to Kanye.
Kanye and Kim were spotted arriving in separate private jets on May 24. Friends and family were also spotted arriving at the airport before the wedding.
At HollywoodLife.com, we are hearing that Kanye’s vows will be special and emotional. A source close to Kanye told us EXCLUSIVELY on the night of the rehearsal dinner:
“Kanye was a nervous wreck because he was trying to memorize his vows that he’d written more than a year ago to Kim. It was like four or five pages long and he wants to remember every single solitary line so that he can look Kim directly into her eyes as he’s professing how much he loves her.”
“He’s going to be a mess, literally. He’s real jittery and even though he’s a man and wants to be in control and keep his composure when he’s looking into his brides eyes, I can assure you, without a doubt, he will crack. He will be in tears because the man is seriously in love with Kim that it’s ridiculous.”
USA Today reports that the mayor’s office in Florence, Italy confirms the couple paid about 300,000 euros ($410,000) to have their wedding ceremony at the Belvedere Fort, or Forte di Belvedere.
They also report that the wedding cost a reported $7 million dollars.
Flowers & Dinner — All The Details
The wedding has a reported 6pm local start time.
There is a giant wall of flowers visible inside the Forte di Belvedere. A source told Us Weekly: “The blooms include white gardenias, white peonies and white roses from Paris and Belgium. It’s very hot at the moment so they’ll have to spray them with water until the wedding starts to stop them from wilting.”
The food will no doubt be amazing, as the couple hired three-Michelin-star restaurant owner Giorgio Pinchiorri to cater the event.
Kanye’s Romantic Proposal
Kim’s happy ending began when Kanye staged a surprise proposal in October 2013 at the AT&T Park baseball stadium in San Francisco. He proposed in the middle of the field, surrounded by Kim’s mom Kris Jenner and her sisters.
The proposal was accentuated with a 50-piece orchestra playing Lana Del Ray‘s “Young and Beautiful,” one of Kim’s favorite songs.
Lana flew to Paris to perform at the couple’s rehearsal dinner, held at Versailles on May 23, which was a surprise to Kim.
