Kim Kardashian and Kanye West said "I do" in a wedding ceremony in Florence, Italy on Saturday at a Renaissance fortress. A representative for the couple confirmed that Kim's sisters served as her bridal party and that stepfather Bruce Jenner walked her down the aisle. Both Andrea Bocelli and John Legend sang at the reception that followed the nuptials.

Fans were kept away from the event by the heavily walled fortress in which the ceremony took place. They arrived early, too, in hopes of catching a glimpse of Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, or any of the other members of the Keeping Up With the Kardashians family. They may have caught glimpses of some of the noted celebrities who attended the wedding, however, including Steve McQueen--the director of the Oscar-winning film 12 Years A Slave. Jaden Smith, son of Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith was spotted by some onlookers, as was Lala Anthony, wife of New York Nicks basketball star Carmelo Anthony. Joe Francis of Girls Gone Wild fame was seen entering the fortress before the start of the ceremony, too.

Mom Kris Jenner posted a photo on Instagram that she took just prior to the ceremony. She captioned the photo, "Uh huh Honey....#herecomesthebride"

This is the first time Kanye West has ever been married, but it's the third wedding for Kim Kardashian. Her most recent marriage--a highly publicized event--to NBA player Kris Humphries took place back in 2011 and lasted only 72 days. Kim and Kanye have a baby girl together. North West was born in June 2013.

Do you expect that the third time will be the charm for Kim Kardashian? Will her marriage to Kanye West be that one that lasts 'til death do them part?' Hopefully the two can provide a happy and stable life for their little girl as well as for any future children the couple have.

It's quite likely that within very few hours even more information will emerge about Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's wedding in Florence. Which publication do you suppose will be privy to those first wedding photos?
