Everybody's favorite couple, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian, have finally tied the knot in Florence, Italy. Not Versailles, as it has been long rumored, but in the 16th century Forte di Belvedere in front of 200 guests. Versailles, however, did serve as the locale of their rehearsal dinner.

After partying it up in Paris the week leading up to the big day, Kimye's wedding guests were all privately flown to Florence on Saturday for the ceremony at the historic fort according to People magazine. Why Florence, of all glamorous European cities? Because it's where their daughter North was conceived! TMI!

Photos have yet to surface of the ceremony, but tenor Andrea Bocelli serenaded Kardashian as she walked down the aisle, while Miami-based pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. performed the ceremony. According to onlookers, Kanye was quite nervous before the ceremony, "swigging obsessively from a bottle of water and shifting his weight from one foot to the other."

Congratulations to the newly wedded couple! Hopefully this inspires more great music from Yeezy and more great memes.
