It’s official: Kim K and Kanye West to wed in Florence

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will get married and host a reception at Florence’s imposing 16th-century Belvedere Fort on May 24, a spokeswoman at the Florence mayor’s office said on Friday.

The couple rented the fort, located next to Florence’s famed Boboli Gardens, for €300,000. A Protestant minister will preside, spokeswoman Elisa Di Lupo said in a phone interview.

The 36-year-old rapper proposed to the reality television star on her 33rd birthday in October 2013, renting out San Francisco’s AT&T Park for the occasion.

There has been no explicit confirmation from either Kardashian or West about the wedding.  Continue...

In an email on Thursday, Kardashian’s representative Ina Treciokas said she wasn’t able to comment on reports about the nuptials.
But in an interview with Florence’s La Nazione newspaper published on Friday, West extolled the beauty of Florence and spoke of the event. Asked if he was excited about May 24, he said: “Very excited. But very happy.”
He said he and Kardashian had come to Florence incognito and believed that their daughter, North, born in June 2013, was conceived “among the Renaissance masterpieces”.

The couple was featured on the cover of Vogue magazine’s April issue, with Kardashian wearing a wedding-style dress.

Di Lupo said the proceeds from the rental would go to fund restoration of many of Florence’s artistic treasures.
