Two years ago Kim Kardashian and Kanye West got married in an extravagant fete that spanned two cities and two days. The party started in Paris, where Kim and Kanye invited fashion's biggest names to kick off their wedding weekend at Valentino's Paris mansion, Chateau de Wideville. The day was topped off with a lavish private reception at Versailles. Afterwards, the whole gang moved to Florence, where the couple were set to say their vows at Forte di Belvedere, a 16th-century Italian fortress. In honor of the couple's wedding anniversary, we decided to break their nuptials down into simple figures.
