For Kim Kardashian, more is always more. The reality star, who wed ex husband Kris Humphries in a lavish $10 million ceremony, will marry third husband Kanye West three times— once in Southern California and twice in France— RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
To avoid long lines and red tape, a source tells RadarOnline.com, the couple’s lawyers recommended they hold a civil ceremony in the United States prior to their French nuptials on May 24. “Typically, the U.S. recognizes citizens getting married in France, but dealing with a foreign government and paperwork could be a nightmare,” the insider explains. “So just to make sure it’s legal, Kim and Kanye will first be having a civil ceremony in Southern California.”
Next, the couple will cross the Atlantic for their dream ceremony inParis— and French law dictates that there be two wedding ceremonies.
“A religious ceremony has to be performed after a civil ceremony, never before,” the French Embassy in Washington D.C. explains to RadarOnline.com. “The minister, priest or rabbi will require a certificate of civil marriage before any religious ceremony takes place.”
According to a new report, the high-profile couple recently scouted a new location for their main event— the 17th-century, Louis XIV-commissioned Chateau de Louveciennes.
“Kim will have at least three dress changes on the big ceremony day in France,” a source tells RadarOnline.com “It will be over the top. Kim and Kanye want it to be the wedding of the century.”
