Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have wed in Florence, Italy.

The couple flew in separately from Paris, France, where they partied with family and friends on Friday night.

Reports suggest the newlyweds had planned to exchange vows at the Chateau de Versailles, but French law stood in their way as neither bride nor groom resides in the country.

Instead, they toured the grounds of the historic palace on Friday afternoon, before flying back to their base in Paris to host a pre-wedding cocktail party with a six-figure performance from Kardashian’s favorite singer Lana Del Rey.

West was the first to arrive in Florence for the nuptials on Saturday morning. His bride and several guests touched down hours later.

Guests of the big event at the medieval Forte di Belvedere included John Legend and his wife Chrissy Teigen and “12 Years a Slave” director Steve McQueen, who started arriving as Andrea Bocelli’s “Time to Say Goodbye” blasted out from loud speakers.

Noticeably absent from the festivities were Jay Z and Beyoncé, who took the weekend to vacation privately instead, but sent their congratulations via social media.

While the entertainment media went on high-alert to cover the nuptials – which, will hopefully last longer than the 72 days of Kardashian’s last marriage - some outlets took a more cynical approach, including the New York Post, which printed this short wedding announcement:

The wedding party wasn’t the only thing to arrive from Paris – the wedding’s flowers made the trip too, with roses flown in from Belgium as well. Earlier plans were said to include a $160,000 yacht, but still no word on whether the ceremony included “fighter jets,” as West had promised last year. 

Meanwhile, bosses at Adidas chose the wedding day to launch their new 2014 World Cup soccer ad, which features music by Kanye West. The new commercial for “The Dream: All In or Nothing” features the rapper repeating the words “God Level” over footage of soccer superstars like Lionel Messi and Dani Alves.
