Yesterday the news broke that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will be marrying in Florence, Italy, and now we know where!
Kimye will reportedly walk down the aisle at the Forte di Belvedere on May 24, according to People mag, and not only that, but the couple are spending a whopping 300,000 Euros ($411,00 USD) to rent the property!
The estate was built by the Medici family in the late 1500s, and while it previously protected the city and government of Florence, the buildings now serve as a venue for exhibitions of contemporary art.
Last year the fort reopened to the public after five years of renovations, so it seems like Kimye have had this in the works for a while. There were rumors that the couple would get married at the Palace of Versailles and the Chateau Louis XIV in France, and though the ceremony itself will be in Italy, the pre-wedding dinner will still be in Paris. Kimye will then fly their 100 or so guests out in private jets to the wedding.
West has spent "several days" in Florence this week according to the mag, and he has been meeting with Ermanno Scervino at the Italian designer's studio. Kim had a dress fitting at Balmain late last month, and while we assumed that was for her wedding gown, People reports that Scervino may be responsible for what both the bride and the groom will be wearing. Guess we'll find out more over the next week -- the wedding of the year is just 8 days away!
