Kanye West Marries Kim Kardashian In Italy

Over the weekend, Kanye West made things official with his lady love, Kim Kardashian, as the pair jetted off for a week-long Parisian celebration that culminated when they wed at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy.

The entire trio including their adorable daughter North West wore custom Givenchy. Kardashian, 33, stunned the crowd in a gorgeous Givenchy Haute Couture creation by Riccardo Tisci with long-sleeve, sheer-paneled lace and a floor-length veil for her third trip down the aisle.

It's Official: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West Are Married

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are married. After a nearly weeklong Parisian celebration, the reality maven and rapper not so quietly tied the knot on Saturday at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy.

Rich Wilkerson Jr., a pastor from North Miami, performed the ceremony, while longtime Kardashian family friend and celebrity event planner Sharon Sacks planned the couple's nuptials. Sacks also created Kim's baby shower and wedding to Kris Humphries.

Andrea Bocelli sang Con te Partirò as Kim was walked down the aisle by Bruce Jenner. The couple were married in front of a massive wall of flowers.

Before the ceremony, Kanye was the typical nervous groom, 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 tells 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."

During the ceremony, the guests broke into applause twice – first at the newlyweds' kiss and then at the presentation of the bride and groom. Kris Jenner was seen wiping her eyes with tissue in the front row. Vows were intimate and spoken softly, according to a source, and after, Kanye was all smiles again and both he and Kim were beaming.

Escort cards (done by high-end L.A. invitationers Lehr and Black) directed guests to their seats for dinner along an engraved marble table. The cards – off-white with gold (complementing the color scheme of the whole wedding) – have a rendering of the marble table on them, which served as a center focal point for the celebration.

West, 36, and Kardashian, 33, first sparked rumors that they hoped to marry in Versailles with their frequent trips to the City of Light. But the fashionable newlyweds instead chose to fête their impending nuptials with a rehearsal dinner at the famed château Friday with their famous friends and family, and then flew their nearly 200 guests privately to Florence Saturday morning for the wedding celebration.

The couple and their wedding party were spotted arriving in Florence before heading to their respective hotels, with Kardashian and her close family staying at Villa San Michele and other guests checking in at the Westin Excelsior.

The couple chose the Italian city for a very personal reason – they conceived baby North there! The Fort di Belvedere is an imposing fortress dating back to the 16th century that originally protected the Italian city and its Renaissance palace from attackers.

The forte, which reopened to the public in 2013 after five years of renovations, is known for its sweeping panoramas and the fabulous contemporary art exhibitions it hosts.

West and Kardashian began dating in 2012 and got engaged in October 2013 after an elaborate proposal at San Francisco's AT&T Park.

This is West's first marriage and Kardashian's third.
