Kim Kardashan and Kanye West planned their beautiful Florence wedding together, but the bride was totally in the dark when it came to one very special guest: Andrea Bocelli!

As the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star made her way down the aisle, the Italian tenor sang several of his biggest hits. At the time, though, Mrs. West tells E! News exclusively, "I thought I was walking to the aisle to his CD playing..."

"But when I got to the altar, I did a double take and screamed!" she says. "I couldn't believe he was there himself!"

This particular artist holds a lot of significance for the Kardashian family. "My favorite singer is Andrea Bocelli and Kanye surprised me," Kim says, adding, "My dad [Robert Kardashian, who died of esophageal cancer in 2003] loved him too."

"It felt like I was walking down the aisle with my dad as [Andrea] sang," North West's mama gushes.

Um, holy thoughtful, Kanye! And you know the gorgeous photo of Kimye preparing to say their I-dos that E! News posted exclusively this morning? "The pic," Kim says, "is when I just got to the altar, and [Andrea] was still singing."

Such a sweet memory to have and to hold!
