Reality TV star Kim Kardashian has tied the knot to rapper fiance Kanye West in a spectacular ceremony in Florence, Italy.
After a nearly week-long Parisian celebration, Rich Wilkerson Jr, a pastor from North Miami, performed the wedding ceremony yesterday at the historic Forte di Belvedere, a 16th-century-era fortress atop a hill near the Arno river, reported People magazine.
Andrea Bocelli sang Con te Partiro as Kim, 33, walked down the aisle by her step-father Bruce Jenner to take her vows in the presence of family and friends. Before the ceremony, Kanye was the typical nervous groom. "It was funny how nervous he was. 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," a source said.
During the nuptials, the guest broke into applause twice, first at the newlyweds' kiss and then at the presentation of the bride and groom. Kim's mother Kris Jenner was seen wiping her eyes with tissue in the front row.
This is the third marriage for Kim, who was previously married to Kris Humphries and Damon Thomas, while it is Kanye's first marriage. The couple have a baby daughter together.
