It's official: Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are married

(Yahoo! Celebrity) - Wedding bells have finally rung for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West.

After weeks of speculation, Kardashian, 33, and West, 36, tied the knot in Florence, Italy, at the Forte di Belvedere, Yahoo can confirm.

Kim wore a custom Givenchy Haute Couture gown designed by pal Riccardo Tisci. Her veil and accessories were Givenchy as well. 

Givenchy also dressed West in a custom wedding tuxedo and daughter North in a custom Haute Couture dress matching her mother's.

The reality star's sisters — Kourtney, Khloé, Kendall, and Kylie — served as bridesmaids, according to E!, while Kanye's best friends from Chicago stood as his groomsmen. Bruce Jenner walked his stepdaughter down the aisle as family members — such as matriarch Kris Jenner, North, Scott Disick with Mason and Penelope, grandma MJ, and Brandon and his wife Leah Jenner — looked on. Rob Kardashian skipped the wedding, for reasons that are not yet known.People reports that Rich Wilkerson Jr., a pastor from North Miami, performed the ceremony.

Other famous faces in attendance included: John Legend and his model wife, Chrissy Teigen, Common, La La Anthony, tennis pro Serena Williams, retired NBA star Scottie Pippen and his wife, Larsa, famed jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, Big Sean, Tyga, Rick Rubin, designer Rachel Roy, Khloé's BFF Malika Haqq, Brittny Gastineau, Jonathan Cheban, Simon Huck, Shelli Azoff, and Vogue contributing editor Andre Leon Talley.

Noticeably absent were Beyoncé and Jay Z, who are reportedly spending the weekend in the Hamptons. However, Beyoncé posted a sweet message to the couple on Instagram. "Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family," she captioned the below photo.

Unfortunately, Vogue's editor-in-chief, Anna Wintour, had to decline the invite. "Anna had a longstanding family commitment this weekend and sadly had to miss the wedding," a rep for the magazine told the New York Post's Page Six.

Legend serenaded the couple with his hit, "All of Me" at the reception. Kimye's first dance was to Etta James's "At Last," followed by Otis Redding's "These Arms of Mine" and "Tenderness," and "Otis" by Kanye and Jay Z.

So why did the couple decide to get married in Florence? West discussed his love for the city in Florence's La Nazione newspaper earlier this month.

"I love Florence, I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle," the rapper revealed. "I think we conceived our daughter North here, among the masterpieces of the Renaissance... It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world, for me the most beautiful in Europe."

Festivities kicked off in Paris on Friday with Kim and Kanye's closest family and friends. A select group attended a pre-wedding brunch at designer Valentino Garavani's Château de Widevilleoutside of the city. 

"I would love to toast these two beautiful people here before me," Valentino said at the end of the celebration, according to Talley's wedding diary for Vogue. "And I also want to thank Kris Jenner for having these beautiful girls. These girls make my dining room even more beautiful." Then, in Italian, he toasted Kim and Kanye: "I wish you much success, a lot of love, and a long life."

After the intimate gathering, Kimye opened up the party to more of their guests. Hundreds of their pals were treated to dinner and a private tour of the Palace of Versailles, one of the couple's favorite French haunts.

"Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have decided to let their guests discover the Château of Versailles during a private surprise tour on Friday, May 23, the eve of their wedding," read a statement released by the couple and officials at the Louis XIV estate.""In making this choice, they are contributing to a better understanding and maintaining the exceptional heritage of the castle of Versailles, which is classed a World Heritage site UNESCO."

Kardashian, clad in a plunging white gown, and West, surprised their guests with a performance by Lana Del Rey, whose brief set included the song "Young and Beautiful." The evening concluded with a seven minute fireworks show.

West popped the question to Kim on her 33rd birthday on October 21, 2013. The rapper rented out San Francisco's AT&T Park and proposed in front of family and friends. The Chicago Symphony played Rey's "Young and Beautiful" while the Jumbotron flashed "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" He then presented his lady love with a 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz ring.

While this is Kanye's first marriage, it will be Kim's third union. She famously wed NBA player Kris Humphries in 2011, only to call it quits 72 days later. In 2000, Kim eloped with music producer Damon Thomas, but they had a messy divorce in 2004.

Kim and Kanye have one daughter together, North West, who will celebrate her first birthday next month.

Here's hoping they live happily ever after.
