Before they say "I do" this weekend, we're looking back at the evolution of Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's relationship from friends to lovers.
"[Kanye] and I have been best friends for a real long time and just been in each other's lives and known each other for a long time and I can honestly say that's just a really good foundation for a good relationship," the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star told ET in October 2013 after her engagement to the rapper.
The two were first photographed together in 2007, but Kanye had his eye on Kim long before they first met. He told Kris Jenner that he remembered fawning over her with friends after seeing pictures of her with Paris Hilton.
Kanye had a few hurdles to get over before winning Kim over. After dating Reggie Bush in 2007, Kim famously married NBA player Kris Humphries in 2011 and split from him just 72 days later.
Kimye was first spotted together as a couple in 2012 while shopping in New York. Kim announced that she was pregnant with daughter North West later that same year.
"He's the best daddy," Kris Jenner told us in November 2013.
On October 21, 2013, Kim accepted Kanye's wedding proposal in front of her family and close friends at San Francisco's AT&T Park.
"It was so surreal," said Kim. "We ran and told [North] right away."
