Inside Kim Kardashian and Kanye West's Wedding 'Roller Coaster'

"It was a crazy, nonstop, incredible dream," one guest tells PEOPLE


For guests attending the wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, the weeklong extravaganza was a high-speed ride.

“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.”

And the couple’s 11-month-old daughter, North, made sure to capture the spotlight. Carried down the aisle by grandma Kris Jenner, says another source, “She clapped the whole way down.”
