Kanye West had been visibly nervous as he waited for Kim Kardashian to walk down the aisle. But as this exclusive photo from their extravagant Italian wedding shows, when the Givenchy-clad bride finally made it to his side on Saturday, the rapper beamed with happiness.

"Kanye really went all out there with his love," Kardashian family friend Malika Haqq told PEOPLE about the 36-year-old's no-expense-spared planning for their special day.

From the wall of flowers at the wedding ceremony to paying a fortune for Lana Del Rey to sing Kardashian's favorite song at their rehearsal dinner at the palace of Versailles to flying more than 200 friends and family to Florence, Italy, in private jets, it would appear that it was all money well spent for West – who's reportedly worth $120 million – and his reality TV bride. (Check back for more photos in the next issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday.)

"I wanted a family," West – who has an 11-month old daughter, North, with Kardashian – said in January. "So God gives you opportunities, and you make sacrifices for something that's greater."
