Following the most pomp and circumstance of any celebrity wedding in recent memory, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have finally said 'I do.'

People broke the news we've all been waiting for, confirming reports that the pair tied the knot in Florence, Italy early Saturday evening.

And even though Kim's dress has yet to introduce itself to the internet, the weddings details are finally coming to light.

Rich Wilkerson Jr., a pastor from North Miami, officiated the ceremony attended by 200 guests. Originally thought to happen in Versailles, Kimye jetted out away from the city of light on Saturday morning following their rehearsal dinner and week-long Parisian pre-wedding celebration.

The couple and their wedding party, all of whom were flown privately from France to Italy, were spotted arriving in Florence before heading to their respective hotels, with Kardashian and her close family staying at Villa San Michele and other guests checking in at the Westin Excelsior.

Among the guests were John Legend, Chrissy Teigen, Andrea Bocelli, La La Anthony, David Blaine, Robin Antin and Common.

And albeit a little on the grainy side, here's what many are saying is the first photo of the wedding party courtesy of Twitter.

It's been said that the couple decided on the Italian city because it's the place where North West was conceived.

The Fort di Belvedere, the historic fort where the nuptials took place, is an imposing fortress dating back to the 16th century that originally protected the Italian city and its Renaissance palace from attackers. Following years of renovations, the fort was reopened to the public in 2013 and is known is known for its sweeping panoramas.

Kanye was allegedly a nervous moments before the ceremony, swigging obsessively from a bottle of water and shifting his weight from one foot to the other.
"It was funny how nervous he was," an onlooker told People. "He clearly knew the gravity of what he was about to do. This morning he was all smiles, but as it got closer, you could see that the nerves were kicking in. It's common for most grooms. I've seen it all before."
West, 36, and Kardashian began dating in 2012, welcomed their daughter last June and were engaged on Kim's 33rd birthday this past October in an elaborate proposal at San Francisco's AT&T Park.

This is West's first marriage and Kardashian's third. Our congratulations go out to the happy couple!
