Kimye’s Wedding (and Other Celeb Nuptials)

It was a very Kimye weekend, as all eyes were on the famous couple during their extravagant nuptial celebration weekend. USA TODAY says that Kim Kardashian and  Kanye West’s wedding party hit several European destinations over the course of the holiday weekend. The Kardashian/Jenner clan spent several days in Paris before traveling to Florence for the big day. The Florence mayor’s office reported to USA TODAY that the Kimye wedding was held at the Belvedere Fort, a 16th-century structure in Florence located near the famous Boboli Gardens. The grand Chateau de Versailles also played a role in the weekend’s festivities, hosting Kimye’s guests at a private pre-wedding event on Friday evening. Jay-Z and Beyonce declined their invitation to the big event, as Page Six says they were “reportedly spending their weekend in the Hamptons.” (Beyonce Instagrammed a photo of the happy couple, captioned with a kind message wishing them well.) Page Six also reported that Kim’s brother Rob Kardashian was nowhere to be found at the wedding, presumably as a result of Kim’s fat-shaming of Rob when he was unable to fit into a suit for the pre-wedding festivities. According to US Weekly, Kim’s stepbrother Brody Jenner skipped the wedding as well, heading instead to a DJ gig in Chicago at HOMEbar.

Fortunately, the self-centered couple was not the only pair of celebs getting hitched this weekend. Though they didn’t receive as much media attention, these lovely folks also tied the knot over Memorial Day:

  • Actress and former Saturday Night Live cast member Casey Wilson married David Caspe, creator of Wilson’s “late, great show Happy Endings,” as reported by The Wire. The two were united in holy matrimony at the Ojai Valley Inn in California, where the groom’s brother officiated the ceremony.
  • Actress Lisa Edelstein, best known for her role as Dr. Cuddy on House, married artist Robert Russell on Sunday in Los Angeles.
  • Season Five Bachelorette competitor and Bachelor Pad 2 winner Michael Stagliano married Emily Tuchscherer in downtown Chicago on Saturday. Several Bachelor/Bachelorette alumni were in attendance, including Kiptyn Locke and Robby Descant.
