Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have reportedly settled on a venue for their nuptials, and if they’re able to book it, the wedding won’t be a low-key courthouse affair (not that we expected any less of the couple); it will be at a genuine palace in France.
Rumor has it that they’ve set their hopes on the Palace of Versailles, the former home of Marie Antoinette, and there is reportedly no budget planned.
“Kanye has never been married and wants a big [wedding],” a source told Us Weekly.
The famous couple are somewhat known for their opulence, and Kim’s 15-carat engagement ring begs for a big gathering. It’s not clear yet whether Kanye will allow the big day to be filmed–he’s already said he doesn’t want their baby daughter North to be too involved in Kim’s reality show shenanigans–but no doubt the media will be on high alert.
West recently showed his love for Kim by commissioning a painting of her by Andy Warhol’s niece, Monica Warhol. The work reportedly went for $30,000 and depicts the same photo of Kim reprinted in various colors, much like the famous pieces Warhol did for celebs like Marilyn Monroe in his day.
“I am picking up where Andy left off, and Kim is the perfect addition to the Warhol legacy. There is no way Andy Warhol would not have painted her. Kim is manufactured gorgeous and is beyond fabulous. How could Andy not have been inspired to paint her like he did Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor?” Monica Warhol said.
