Kim Kardashian, Kanye West marry in Italy

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tied the knot in their own fairy tale fashion on Saturday evening at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, following a pre-wedding jaunt and bachelorette party in Paris, reported People

According to the magazine, the pair were married by Rich Wilkerson Jr., a pastor from Miami's Trinity Church. The pair said their "I do's" at the 16th Century fort in front of a white-flowered wall, which Us Weekly reported was covered in gardenias, peonies and roses that cost over $100,000, said People. During the ceremony, tenor Andrea Bocelli sang "Con te Partiró" as Kardashian was walked down the aisle by her stepfather, Bruce Jenner.

Following the big event, said Us, guests sat at a 76-yard-long marble banquet table that afforded a panoramic view of the city. For the couple's first dance song, John Legend performed "At Last"; other tunes that followed included Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness," "Rock With You" by Michael Jackson and "Otis" by West and Jay Z.

The marriage is the first for West, 36, and the third for Kardashian, 33. At age 19 she eloped with music producer Damon Thomas, and they divorced in 2003. In 2011 she was married to NBA player Kris Humphries for 72 days before filing for divorce in October of that year.

While still legally married to Humphries, Kardashian began dating West in April 2012. Her divorce from Humphries was finalized on June 3 and on June 15, Kardashian and West welcomed a baby girl together, named North West.

The rapper has been a longtime friend of Kardashian's, and included references to her in his lyrics (like 2012's "Cold") which seemed to indicate he had a crush on her. During their courtship, the pair filmed a video for his "Bound 2" song, in which a naked Kardashian straddled a motorcycle while facing driver West.

In an appearance on Oprah Winfrey's "Next Chapter" in June 2012, Kardashian said she didn't know why it took her and West so long to get together. "I've known him — we met, maybe almost a decade ago. We've been friends for like six or seven years. So it's very comforting to have someone that knows everything about you, that respects you, understands (and) has gone through the similar things."

In his own interview with Hot 97 in New York, West called their coupling "a love story for the ages. I felt like when we first got together, it was like a Romeo and Juliet kinda thing where it's like she's a reality star and I'm a rapper."

West asked Kardashian to marry him on her 33rd birthday with a fitting spectacle at San Francisco's AT&T Park in front of family and friends and with fireworks and a full orchestra. When asked why he chose to propose in a baseball stadium, Kanye told Power 106 in Los Angeles: "I just thought it would be dope."

Arnold Schwarzenegger later signed the "Donda West Law," which made it mandatory for patients to show they are medically cleared before undergoing elective cosmetic surgery.

    With Anna Nicole Smith -

    Kanye West began his career as a music producer in 1996, but then struggled to earn his own record deal. In 2004, he released his debut album, "The College Dropout." Reality show star and model Anna Nicole Smith appeared in the music video for that album's single, "The New Workout Plan." The song pokes fun at the idea that women are valued only for their shape, men for their money. Smith died in 2007 after a prescription drug overdose.

In the days leading up to the wedding, Kardashian and her family and friends made several appearances around Paris, and she reportedly held her bachelorette party at several hot nightspots on May 22. The following evening was reserved for her rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles. Then on Saturday morning, reported People, the couple flew themselves, their family and nearly 200 guests to Florence for the main event.

Likely guests on their list included Chrissy Teigen, Lala Anthony, André Leon Talley and Rachel Roy, but there was no indication that anticipated guests like Beyoncé and Jay Z were on hand. (Us sources indicated that Bey and Jay spent the weekend in the Hamptons, instead.)

People suggested Jay Z might also loan the couple his yacht to use for their honeymoon, but plans were not officially announced. Wherever the two end up, however, the honeymoon will have to be brief: West is supposed to perform in Austin, Texas, at the X Games on June 7.
