Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are set to wed next weekend, but it won't be in Paris, as previously reported.

The couple will marry in Florence, Italy, a favorite spot of Kanye's and the place he believes daughter North was conceived.

"I adore Florence. I love Italy and the Italian lifestyle. To tell you the truth, I already came to the banks of the Arno [river] with Kim last year, just the two of us, incognito," the rapper told Florence's La Nazione newspaper on Friday.

"I think that our daughter North was conceived here among the Renaissance masterpieces," he added. "It was our first honeymoon. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world -- for me the most beautiful in Europe."

Kanye also shared his thoughts on his wife, saying he's a romantic at heart and that family will always come first.

"[I'm] very happy. I am a romantic: for Mother's Day I gave Kim a wall of flowers," he explains. "Family is everything for me, the antidote to the pressure of fame. Family and creativity relax me. I am happy to create for my family."
