KLOE KARDAHIAN WEDDING DETAILS
In what proved to be an elegant finale to their month-long courtship, Khloe Kardashian wed Los Angeles Laker Lamar Odom Sunday evening at a private residence in Beverly Hills, PEOPLE confirms.
At 5:12 p.m., Kardashian, 25, walked down the outdoor aisle in a Vera Wang gown on the arm of her stepfather, Bruce Jenner, with sisters Kim and a pregnant Kourtney at her side.
Khloe's bridal party included half-sisters Kendall and Kylie Jenner, actresses (and twin sisters) Khadijah and Malika Haqq and actress Lauren London.
Cameras rolled for a future episode of E!'s Keeping Up With the Kardashians as 250 guests – including the show's producer Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Osbourne, Odom's Laker teammate Kobe Bryant, with his wife Vanessa, and TV personalities Chelsea Handler, Lara Spencer, Brittny Gastineau and Lala Vazquez – looked on.
Guests began arriving at the black-tie affair (at which BlackBerrys were banned) more than an hour in advance for a pre-wedding reception. A ten-piece orchestra played during the ceremony, held on the grounds of the home of music mogul Irving Azoff, a family friend. The flowers for the ceremony were all-white.
Wedding planner Sharon Sacks created the Hollywood nightclub-themed reception that followed in a tent on the property, fitted with dark wooden walls, white carpeting, silver mirrors and chandeliers. Guests dined at glass and wood tables decorated with lavish centerpieces of white and lavender flowers. A DJ was booked to keep the party going until 11:00 p.m.
Elegant white and silver invitations went out to guests just days before the ceremony, hosted by Khloe's mom Kris Jenner and her stepdad. Also among those who attended were Luke Walton, Phil Jackson, Mitch Kupchak and Sasha Vujacic.
The four-course dinner began with chilled heirloom tomato soup with burrata (mozzarella and cream), a salad of melons with fresh figs and feta, followed by a choice of filet mignon or wild salmon fillet and a dessert trio. The wedding cake was by Hansen's Cakes.
Earlier in the week, Khloe prepared for the whirlwind wedding, choosing items for her wedding registry and celebrating with a bachelorette party, all while being followed by the E! cameras.
Asked if would consider producing a show with Khloe and Lamar, Ryan Seacrest replied, "I'm seriously thinking about it."
