The biggest celebrity wedding of 2014 was officiated by a pastor at a South Florida church.

Wedding bells finally rang for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian near Florence, Italy on Saturday, and yes, So-Flo was in the house. As it turns out, the pastor who made it official is from North Miami.

Pastor Rich Wilkerson, Jr. is an associate pastor at Trinity Church in Miami. The 30-year-old with the movie-star good looks is in charge of youth involvement.

Wilkerson met and formed a close bond with the couple a couple of years ago, after they attended one of his services. After the ceremony was over, the pastor tweeted: “So happy for these two. Grateful for their friendship. The best is yet to come. #marriedlifeisthebestlife.”

Fans gathered at the base of the fort where the wedding took place, not so much to keep up with the Kardashians, but to check out all the celebrities in attendance. “I don’t really follow it, I don’t watch the show, so we’re excited about coming and maybe getting a chance to take a picture with them,” said a young woman.

“We want to see their dresses, Lana Del Rey and Justin Bieber, too,” said a fellow celebrity hound. “Just to see everyone is really exciting.”

Bieber fans chanting, “Justin! Justin! Justin!” were in for a letdown. The Biebs was a no-show at the event.
