Kanye West has become famous for much more than his controversial music; his outspoken nature has become an ongoing joke in the media, and he’s managed to do it again! Over the April 23 weekend, the 38-year-old “Famous” singer celebrated the marriage of his friends, nightclub owner David Grutman and model Isabela Rangel. In true Kanye style, he couldn’t get through the wedding day without taking his turn in the spotlight.

Just in case wedding-goers had forgotten about West infamously interrupting Taylor Swift during the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, he offered a not-so-subtle reminder when he took over the mic once again during a speech to the bride and groom. As wedding guests hollered, he offered a few kind words to the newly married couple. “I’mma let you finish,” he shouted, “but Dave and Isabela had one of the best weddings of all time!” He offered a sly smile as wedding guests clapped and shouted along with the bride and groom.

Well I guess this says it all. I love you @isabelarangela Grutman

West wasn’t the only noteworthy guest to show up for the lavish wedding; he brought his wife, Kim Kardashian. His sister-in-law Kourtney was in attendance as well. Other famous guests included actress Gabrielle Union, model Elle Macphearson, actor Wilmer Valderrama, and professional wrestler Hulk Hogan. Radio host Ryan Seacrest even made an appearance with his girlfriend, actress Hilary Cruz.

Event planner Carolina Toledo helped Mr. and Mrs. Grutman pull-off their “white wedding moment.” By the number of chairs, it appears the happy couple has no shortage of loved ones, including their famous friends.

While West preferred to be front and center, his wife played the role of photographer. Kardashian, 35, captured some sexy images over the wedding weekend, including one shot with the new groom’s hand on his bride’s bum.

The day before the wedding, Kardashian and fellow friends of the bride and groom dressed to the nines and celebrated Kourtney’s 37th birthday. Kim rocked a sheer nude dress, leaving very little to the imagination, while Kourtney wore a sexy little black dress.

Despite West’s impromptu speech and a crowd of famous faces, the stunning bride and groom managed to hold their own.

Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Grutman! Wishing you wedded bliss with no more interruptions.
