Inside Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Wedding 'Roller Coaster'
“It was a roller coaster, but in the best way,” a guest tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story. “It was a crazy, nonstop, incredible dream.”
But there was at least one quiet moment during the ceremony at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, on May 24: When the couple recited their self-penned vows, which featured “a little bit of humor and a whole lot of love,” says an attendee.
The groom “told me he had practiced them in front of a mirror several times to commit them to memory,” says the attendee. “He didn’t make any mistakes.”
