Kim's Versailles bash ended with fireworks!

2014-05-24 08:49

Los Angeles - Kim Kardashian and Kanye West ended their rehearsal dinner with a seven-minute fireworks display on Friday night.

The couple were joined by 600 guests at the Palace of Versailles, 12 miles outside Paris, for a private guided tour and lavish dinner on the eve of their wedding at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy later on Saturday.

A source told that the reality TV star, 33, and the New Slaves hitmaker, 36, celebrated with friends including music producer Rick Rubin, Madonna's manager Guy Oseary, Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz, celebrity personal trainers Gunnar Peterson and Harley Pasternak, and PR gurus Jonathan Cheban and Simon Huck, along with both of their families.

Singer Lana Del Ray provided the entertainment, according to, after Kanye was forced to hire an orchestra to play her hit Young and Beautiful when he proposed to Kim at AT&T Park in San Francisco in October.

Both Kim and Kanye gave heart-warming speeches at the event.

Earlier on Friday, the couple, who have 11-month-old daughter North, were joined by a small number of family members for a lavish lunch at fashion designer Valentino Garavani's 17th century estate.

The 'Keeping Up with the Kardashians' star's stepfather Bruce Jenner and brother, Robert Kardashian, both attended the festivities at the palace after skipping the brunch in favour of eating at their hotel with Kourtney Kardashian's children, Mason, four, and Penelope, 22 months.

The duo and their entourages will fly to Florence via private charter before exchanging vows during a sunset ceremony.
