Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were married on May 24, 2014 in a lavish ceremony in Florence, Italy. They now have the bragging rights for holding the Instagram photo with the most likes. The image is of the happy couple kissing at their wedding.
In 3 days, the picture accumulated 1.96 million likes. The couple stole the crown from Justin Bieber, who previously set the record with an image of him cozying up with his ex-girlfriend Selena Gomez. That image garnered 1.82 million likes in five months.
There was not much press access to the spectacular wedding. The couple decided to use Instagram as a virtual photo album instead to showcase the glitz, glam, and fashion. Another image posted of Kardashian and West walking down the aisle after exchanging their vows garnered 1.59 million likes.
The couple is now honeymooning in Europe and is periodically checking in on their social media accounts – posting images of their first days as a married couple. One noticeable change on Kardashian’s social media account was her name change – Kim Kardashian West. The couple’s 11 month daughter also bears West’s last name.
Without a doubt, the happy couple looks magnificent. However, we can’t help but wonder if this relationship is another publicity stunt brought on by a celebrity looking for more exposure. Before Kris Humphries, Kim allegedly tried to recruit other NBA stars to be her boyfriend on her realty show. She initially recruited Danilo Gallinari of the Denver Nuggets, but he declined her offer and cited her pesky attitude as his reasons. She then settled for Humphries, who she ended up marrying in 2011. The marriage only lasted for 72 days, and the couple split, citing irreconcilable differences.
