We’re always told, growing up, that if we work really, really hard at something, we’ll achieve our goal. Our wish we come true! It’s true of passing the SATs, earning a spot on the cheerleading squad — and successfully stealing another woman’s man out from under his nose.

Talk about a wedding to remember! Kanye West and reality queen Kim Kardashian finally tied the knot over the weekend with a luxurious ceremony in Florence, Italy. In addition to official wedding photos of the newly wed couple, portions of Yeezy’s wedding speech reportedly surfaced.
