MIAMI - Associate pastor Rich Wilkerson Jr., of Trinity Church in Miami, is speaking for the first time about the star-studded wedding of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West in Italy last month.

Wilkerson became friends with the celebrity couple two years ago when the famous couple visited the church.

"Of course this wedding was extra special because they are really good friends of mine, so the whole thing was just absolutely phenomenal," said Wilkerson. "I wish them all the best."

Wilkerson is still amazed by how much his popularity has surged since performing the famous nuptials.

The pastor's social media following has also expanded by the thousands. On the day of the wedding, Wilkerson had about 5,000 followers. Now he has more than 44,000.
