Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries finally got married on the 20th of August, 2011 after all the months of preparation that went in to put things together for this big day. It was a beautiful sunset ceremony which took place at 6.30pm amidst family and friends. Kim was dressed in a made to order Vera Wang gown with a full tulle skirt, basque waist and Chantilly lace appliqué on the bodice and epic train and carried a bouquet of white roses. Her hair was tied up and she wore a statement making jeweled headpiece with diamonds that dripped onto her forehead. Her look was completed by a pair of Guiseppe Zanotti heels.
Kris wore a white peak lapel tuxedo jacket along with black tuxedo pants and a white shirt and white bow tie by Ermenegildo Zegna. The bridesmaid’s were all dresses in ivory gowns. Post the ceremony the party moved to a separate tent. Kim changed two more gowns during her wedding reception; both were Vera Wang gowns. The second one was a mermaid gown with more Chantilly lace on the bodice and hand-cut organza petals on the skirt. The third dress was a satin V-neck gown. Kris swapped his white jacket and bowtie for black, for the wedding reception.
The wedding rings were designed by Lorraine Schwartz, who is one of Kim’s good friends. He also designed her engagement ring which was stunning and turned many heads. Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck dished out a lovely breakfast for all the guests. The wedding cake was a ten-tier black and white, chocolate and vanilla cake which was designed by Hansen Cakes in Los Angeles and is reported to cost close to $20,000.
The altar was made of a huge cross studded with Swarovski crystals and the couple wrote their own vows. The wedding as well as the wedding reception had a black and white theme. There were loads of white roses integrated in the wedding decor. The newly married couple danced to the tunes of soul singer Robin Thicke as he sang his song ‘Angels’ for the couple’s first dance.
The couple’s celebrity friends who attended the wedding were Ryan Seacrest, Lindsay Lohan, Eva Longoria, Mel B, Venus and Serena Williams, Avril Lavigne and Demi Lovato. The wedding venue was highly secured and guests had to give away their phones and cameras. The newlyweds plan to celebrate their nuptials again on August 31 on the east coast. The couple sold exclusive rights to People magazine for the wedding photos for 1.5 million dollars and the footage to E! network. We are waiting to see more of this wedding!
