If you haven't heard by now, E! reality star Kim Kardashian married her NBA player boyfriend Kris Humphries on Saturday night in a lavish ceremony in Monecito, Calif. More details are beginning to emerge about her wedding stunning ivory Vera Wang gown and ceremony.
According to E! and Us magazine, the beautiful 30-year-old bride tied the knot in front of 450 of the closest family and friends in a ceremony that got underway at 6:37 p.m. It lasted approximately 30 minutes and was officiated by Pastor Joel Johnson, who has known the groom since he was a teenager.
Kim's stepfather Bruce Jenner escorted her down the aisle as she carried a bouquet of white roses, which appeared to be the flower of the evening.
The entire ceremony - and the reception - had a black and white theme, with the only stitch of color being the tiny pink box that Humphries' best man, longtime pal Josh Ketroser, presented the rings in. Khloé Kardashian Odom and Kourtney Kardashian were matron and maid of honor, while Kylie and Kendal Jenner and Kris' sister, Kaela Humphries, served as bridesmaids. All wore ivory.
Kim's nephew, the little citiepie Mason Disick was ring bearer, and the altar was made of a huge cross made of Swarovski crystals. The gorgeous couple wrote their own vows.
There were special tributes paid to Humphries' late grandmother and grandfather, and to the bride's father, the late attorney Robert Kardashian.
The dress and shoes
Kim wore an stunning ivory gown designed by none other than Vera Wang. The dress was strapless, with a fitted bodice, a full, rather traditionally cut tulle skirt, and an epic train. The shoes were Guiseppe Zanotti. And as for her hair, the bride kept it up and her veil remained off her face as she walked down the aisle.
The jeweled veil
But Kim's veil wasn't any ordinary veil. In fact, her veil was topped by a jeweled headpiece with diamonds that dripped onto her forehead.
Those lucky enough to score an invitation was Ryan Seacrest, Julianne Hough, Demi Lovato, Lindsay Lohan, George Lopez, Brittny Gastineau, Eva Longoria, Mario Lopez and Sugar Ray Leonard.
The decor and food
There were thousands of white roses incorporated into the decor, which was the same for the reception. As for the food, it was catered by Wolfgang Puck, and included buffalo mozzarella and heirloom tomato salad with basil and tomato chips. The couple's black and white cake was designed by Hansen Cakes in Los Angeles and is reported to cost $15,000 to $20,000.
Robin Thicke sang Angels for the couple's first dance.
A change of clothes, please!
But the night didn't end before Kim had a change of clothes. Well, two more to be exact. Kim also wore two additional white gowns during her reception. She traded her wedding gown for another Vera Wang creation and this time it was an ivory mermaid gown with hand-pieced Chantilly lace appliqué on the bodice and a skirt with hand-cut organza petals intermixed with Chantilly lace motifs and organza sprig embroidery.
As for the groom, he swapped his white jacket and bowtie for black, to match his groomsmen.
Kendall, Kylie and later Khloe changed into matching white track suits. And you know, Khloe, always the life of the party. And on Kim's big day she was the same. Khloe encouraged guests to Shake your t*ts!
After dining, dancing and cutting the cake, the newlyweds continued to party with hundreds of guests - until party poopers called in the authorities about noise complaints and the city fire marshal had to pull the plug on the festivities shortly after midnight.
But fear not, the party will continue on the east coast on Aug. 31 when the couple plans to celebrate their nuptials again. Niche Media founder Jason Binn and wedding planner to the stars Colin Cowie are also throwing the couple another big bash in New York.
