1. Where's Rob?
Kim Kardashian's younger brother Rob Kardashian landed back in L.A. before the couple got a chance to even dance to their first song as husband and wife. A source confirmed to Us Weekly that the 27-year-old flew out of Paris, France before taking the trek to Italy. While in the City of Light, the only son of the family was never photographed, despite the family visiting Valentino's Chateau de Wideville and having fun on a carousel near the Eiffel Tower.

2. Bey Bounces
Beyonce, like Rob, was a no show at the much-talked about nuptials. As previously reported, Jay Z was expected to attend best friend West's big day. However, as exclusively revealed, the twosome headed to the Hamptons instead. The "Drunk in Love" singer wished the newlyweds a "lifetime of unconditional love" amid her absence.

Does it get any cuter? Kimye and their baby girl North West, 11 months, wore outfits styled by the same fashion designer: Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci. A Givenchy rep confirmed to Us that the bride wore a Givenchy haute couture gown, West sported a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci tux, and North wore a Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci dress. To make the walk down the aisle extra special, Bruce Jenner escorted Kardashian while Kris Jenner carried her beautiful granddaughter.

4. That Special Touch
Not just about them! The bride and groom tried to give their guests a night to remember by adding unique details to their wedding's festivities throughout the night. Upon arrival to the ceremony, each guest was given a small bouquet of white flowers. Furthermore, a source tells Us marble tables at the reception had each person's name engraved in 24K gold.

Party time! Kardashian and West went all out when choosing their playlist. The couple started off with a mashup of Etta James' "At Last" and Otis Redding's "These Arms of Mine" and "Tenderness" for their first dance. John Legend was also on hand to sing his ballad "All of Me," which has been the No. 1 song in the country for weeks.
