Congratulations are in order for Mr. and Mrs. Kanye West

Kim Kardashian said I-do to her rapper beau at the historic Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, on Saturday in an intimate (but not so secret!) ceremony which was attended by the couple's nearest and dearest. 

E! News has learned that Rick Wilkinson Jr. officiated the ceremony, which was nothing less than spectacular. 

During the wedding, the couple, along with their guests, enjoyed a magical performance by Andrea Bocelli. The famed Italian tenor serenaded Kim and Kanye with several songs, including "Con te Partiro." 

Guests in attendance included Kris JennerBruce Jenner—who walked Kim down the aisle—Khloé KardashianKourtney Kardashian and Scott DisickKendall Jenner,Kylie JennerJonathan ChebanSimon HuckRachel Roy, LaLa Anthony, Brittny Gastineau, Jaden Smith, Ray Romulus, who wore Vivienne Westwood, stylist Monica Rose, Robin Antin and the couple's adorable 11-month-old daughter, North West.

Kim's bridal party consisted soley of sisters Kourtney, Khloe, Kris, Kylie, Kendall, who all undoubtedly looked stunning their bridesmaids dresses. 

White roses were delivered to the Forte today as part of the stunning floral arrangements, and the catering was provided by Galateo Ricevimenti. Guests dined on traditional Tuscan cuisine before they enjoyed an impressive 7-tier cake, which was crafted by Galeto.

Security was on high alert today at the 16th-century-era fortress, where attendees were required to hand over their cell phones prior to the I-dos. 

The artwork was provided by Vanessa Beecroft Art Installation, while event company Jaulin Decorations was also seen at the Forte, which was adorned with elements of a "strong Tuscan influence" that were "reminiscent of what happened in Florentine art from the 13th century onward," according to a source. 

Prior to the ceremony, two white dress bags, which seemingly contained Kim's wedding dress wear, were sent via private jet from Paris. Kim later got dressed at Forte di Belvedere and while we have yet to see her gown, we have no doubts that bride looked absolutely stunning!

Even before guests stepped foot on the stunning Forte, the excitement had already begun. 

At about 2:40 p.m. Florence time, Kris, Kendall and another man dressed in a tuxedo were part of a larger group waiting outside a villa on the outskirts of Florence before they were transported to the wedding destination. 

 "I saw Kris and Kendall," a second source tells us. "They seemed expectant, upbeat and enthusiastic. They were standing outside waiting to leave and looking at a stunning panoramic view of Florence. They were happy  and excited and you can tell they couldn't wait to go."

And for good reason—congrats to the happy couple!
