It’s only been a few hours since their private wedding in Florence earlier today (May 24), but Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have already begun receiving some digital well-wishes from family, friends and fellow celebrities.
Following reports that she and Jay-Z were not in attendance at either the rehearsal dinner or the ceremony this afternoon (thanks to an Instagram selfie she posted just before the ceremony), Beyoncé posted an Instagram blessing in honor of the newlyweds, writing, “Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family.”
In an interview with E!, mother of the bride Kris Jenner said she is “beyond bursting with happiness for Kim, Kanye and baby North,” adding, “Such a magical, romantic wedding! I feel blessed to have my new son and his family as part of ours.”
The “world’s most talked about couple” was married by self-described young adult pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. at Fort di Belvedere, a fortress built by Grand Duke Ferdinando I de’ Medici in the 1590s, to protect the über-dynastic Medici family and their rule in Florence. Among the guests were Kris, Kylie and Kendall Jenner, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, Scott Disick, Rachel Roy, Chrissy Teigen and John Legend, LaLa Anthony, Lorraine Schwartz, Q-Tip, Big Sean, Rick Rubin and Jaden Smith.
Read on and check back to see how other celebs react to the couple’s nuptials.
