The #KimyeWedding is over, and surprisingly the sun still rose the next day. While it's hard to separate fact from fiction due to the social media ban and 15-page privacy consent forms, we can safely say that they are officially married and the dress was pretty gorgeous. Because you probably didn't scour Twitter for details all weekend (or are still in denial), we put together all of the most entertaining and photo-heavy "news" that came out of the weekend.
Kim, Kanye, and North West all wore Givenchy Haute Couture for the wedding and Kim's gown is surprisingly stunning enough to melt even the crustiest fashion critic's heart. Sadly, no pictures of North's Givenchy gown have surfaced yet. Later, party pics show an outfit change for the reception into a Balmain creation similar to her bachelorette party dress.
Guests including Steve McQueen, John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, La La Anthony, Andre Leon Talley, and a host of Kim's reality star comrades attended the intimate affair. Later at the reception, Legend reportedly performed "All Of Me" and "Ordinary People" while guests took turn in front of the camera in a photo booth in the venue. Check out the best shots below.
First We Feast broke down the menu selection for those who don't regularly consume marjoram, celeriac, etc. Guests dined at a marble slab that was nearly 200 feet long and had place names engraved into the table.
The wedding cake was made by an Italian company, Galateo, and featured seven tiers of cake covered in gold leafing. The end result measured at around 23 feet tall and cost nearly $6,800.
