According to People, Miami pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr., performed the ceremony, while celebrity wedding planner Sharon Sacks coordinated the nuptials.
Guests in attendance included John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, Rick Rubin, LaLa Anthony, Q-Tip, Big Sean, Tyga and Jaden Smith, among others.
Of course, the Kardashian family was in attendance along with stepdad Bruce Jenner, who walked Kimmy down the aisle. Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli sang for the newlyweds, performing the operatic ballad ‘Con te Partiro.’
In addition, John Legend performed his No. 1 hit song ‘All Of Me’ in honor of West and Kardashian at the wedding. Legend also gave a speech, calling the couple’s love an inspiration.
Shockingly, Jay Z, and his wife, Beyonce, were noticeably absent at the wedding. According to reports, the couple were spending time together in the Hamptons.
An eyewitness told People that West was nervous before the wedding.
“It was funny how nervous he was,” said the source. “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.”
Meanwhile, Kris Jenner was seen wiping her tears with a tissue in the front row. West and Kardashian exchanged intimate vows during the ceremony and were all smiles and beaming throughout.
After the wedding ceremony, mama Jenner told E! Online that she was overjoyed with happiness for her daughter, and now son-in-law, West.
“Such a magical, romantic wedding!” she said. “I feel blessed to have my new son and his family as part of ours.”
Before walking down the aisle, Kimye entertained guests at their rehearsal dinner at the Palace of Versailles in Paris on Friday (May 23). Pop singer Lana Del Rey serenaded guests with a three-song medley, including ‘Summertime Sadness.’
West and Kardashian began dating in 2012, and got engaged in October 2013, after a spectacular proposal at AT&T Park in San Francisco, Calif.
This is Kanye West’s first marriage and Kim Kardashian’s third.
