Kanye West and Kim Kardashian are officially married in Florence, Italy. EOnline reports that the couple were married tonight in a private ceremony in front of family and friends. Its being reported that Kim’s sister made up her bridal party while her stepdad Bruce Jenner walked her down the aisle.
According to reports, the lavish ceremony was performed by Rich Wilkerson Jr., a pastor from North Miami. Sources say the “Bound 2” rapper was “the typical nervous groom” before saying “I do.” He was seen “swigging obsessively from a bottle of water and shifting his weight from one foot to the other.”
“It was funny how nervous he was,” an onlooker told 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.”
A spokeswoman at the Florence mayor’s office told People that the couple rented the space for 300,000 euros ($41,000). The total cost of the wedding is said to be around $7 million (People magazine points out that’s enough to pay for 250 “average” weddings in the U.S., according to financial information service GoBankingRates.com) although the couple may get many of the costs back through promotional deals.
