It’s hard to believe that nearly three years ago, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were prepping for their lavish wedding weekend in Europe. As recalled, the party kicked off in Paris and continued with a scenic and intimate family brunch at Valentino’s French countryside home. The reality entourage and friends then jetted off to Italy to witness the couple’s heartfelt, rustic wedding ceremony in Florence, and still, to this day, there are many remaining moments that have yet-to-be-shared with the world.
Kardashian took to her website this week to share never-before-seen pics from one of the events leading up to the wedding—her bridal shower held at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills.
“My mom and sisters surprised me and threw me the most amazing bridal shower,” the mom of two wrote on her website this week. “I thought I was going to a meeting with my mom and she told me to wear white. I guess I should have known something was up!”
Kardashian chose the perfect piece for the occasion—a form-fitting, white dress draped with a pearl halter. “I wore this really cool white Chanel dress that I had been dying to wear. It was all about a French theme, and it was the brunch with the best food.”
To go along with the Parisian party idea, guests noshed on a black-and-white cake featuring an Eiffel Tower topper. “Of course, we had churros too,” the former bride cracked.
Guests included Ciara, who was pregnant with her first child at the time, as well as Rachel Roy, family friend Shelli Azoff, makeup artist Joyce Bonelli, in-law Leah Jenner and more. In true Kardashian fashion, there was a black-and-white booth at the bash for guests to enjoy.
Attendees walked away from the festivities with a box of macarons from Ladurée.
