There’s so much left in the archives. To mark her third wedding anniversary on May 24, Kim Kardashian shared several new, never-before-seen images from her lavish Florentine nuptials to Kanye West.
“Happy three-year anniversary babe!” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star wrote on her website. “Thank you for being the best husband and father. I love you so much.”
Kardashian went on to post new, behind-the-scenes snapshots of the calm leading up to the vows. As recalled, the pair’s whirlwind wedding week kicked off three years ago in Paris (starting with a family brunch at Valentino’s countryside manor) and commenced in Florence, Italy.
Memories from the wedding festivities included the bride trying on her custom gown by Riccardo Tisci at a dress fitting. Kardashian also posted family shots, including one image of herself sharing a sweet reception moment with West and another with little North.
Kardashian’s assistant Steph Shep recently opened up about some of the wedding day snafus that affected the couple. “I often producer-cam the more personal moments for the show, when they don’t want full-on cameras around—so I was filming everyone getting ready,” the new COO of Kardashian West Brands told Refinery29. “And then Caitlyn lost her suit, so I had to locate it; all the girls are getting ready, we’re getting Kim together, we’re in this castle; Kanye is down rearranging the floral arrangements and all this stuff, all while I’m trying to film.”
Thankfully, Shep was able to capture the golden moment during the ceremony—though she wasn’t exactly dressed for the occasion. “I was in Adidas sweatpants and a T-shirt and hadn’t showered that day!” she reminisced. “And then I walked her down to the elevator so she could walk down that really long stone aisle, and then I ran back up and started filming her from the roof! That was the money shot for the show. Meanwhile, there was some security guy yelling at me, ‘You can’t film here!’”
Kardashian has felt especially nostalgic about her wedding in recent months. The Selfish author took to her site several weeks ago to share new images from her bridal shower.
She and West are parents to two children, North and Saint.
