Kim Kardashian posted two special wedding photos to her Instagram account this morning, and we’re finally getting a good look at her wedding gown!
One image shows the happy couple kissing in front of a gigantic wall of flowers, reminiscent of the one Kanye gifted his bride-to-be on Mother’s Day. Another shows the new Mr. and Mrs. West moments after being declared husband and wife. A peek in the background reveals their baby girl North West looking on, held by mother of the bride Kris Jenner.
Kim’s custom-made Givenchy gown was shockingly conservative, even with the sheer back and waist. It featured a mermaid silhouette, a belted waistline and tons of lace.
Givenchy designer Riccardo Tisci posted a detailed back view of the gown, including a lace-trimmed cathedral-length veil that is missing from the images Kim posted. Kanye also wore a custom-made Givenchy suit.
After the ceremony, friends and family celebrated at a lavish reception that included a performance by John Legend. The menu included chicken, salmon, steak, tortelloni, strawberry gelato and both rose and gold Armand de Brignac Champagne that was served family-style at a 70-meter long marble banquet table made especially for the occasion by a local Florence craftsman. For dessert? A towering seven-foot wedding cake of white sponge and white icing with fruit layers, according to People.
Missing out on all the good food and beautiful people was Kim’s brother Rob Kardashian, who reportedly fled the celebration the day before amid rumors of a huge family blowout. The fight didn’t put a damper on the reality TV star’s big day, and now she and her hip-hop mogul hubby are enjoying their honeymoon in Ireland.
