HI everyone!! I hope you all had a wonderful obon holiday! Here in the US people are starting to get ready for the fall season... But before that, last weekend the biggest star in reality television, Kim Kardashian got married!!!
Ever since their show debuted on E!, they have consistently had one of the most popular shows on television.And much of America for some reason seems to be fascinated with anything and everything that this family does.And it seems that the family intends on keeping it that way.The past few months there has been much publicity and promotion surrounding the planning of the wedding, etc.And the event is scheduled to air as a 2-part special here in the U.S. sometime in October.
The wedding took place on Saturday in a private estate in Montecito, Ca (very close to Santa Barbara).The 450 guests included such celebrities as Avril Lavigne with her boyfriend Brody Jenner (his dad, former Olympic swimmer Bruce Jenner is married to the mother of the bride), tennis player Serena Williams, LIndsay Lohan, Ryan Seacrest and his girlfriend Julianne Hough, Disney star Demo Lovato, boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, actress Eva Longoria, along with quite a few NBA stars, including NBA great Scottie Pippen.
Kim K got married to Kris Humphries, who until he started dating Kim K last year, was a relatively unknown NBA player for the New Jersey Nets. To many of the people here in the US who keep up with all their gossip magazines and websites, this was definitely the "celeb wedding of the year", and many were calling it the American version of the "royal wedding".The bride walked down the aisle in an ivory custom-designed Vera Wang gown, and after the ceremony was dancing the night away with her new husband in another custom made Vera Wang dress, while the guests were enjoying a meal prepared by none other than celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck.The entertainment included live performances from soul crooner Robin Thicke, as well as legendary r&b band Earth, Wind, & Fire.
According to various reports, though, much of the wedding was for FREE!! Including the three custom-made Vera Wang gowns, the $15,000 wedding cake, $2 million in flowers, the beautiful custom made invitations,etc. AND to add to that, People Magazine has agreed to the exclusive rights to the wedding photos for $2.5 million!!!
It is really quite amazing to see, because only about 5 or 6 years ago, Kim Kardashian was only really known as the "best friend of Paris Hilton"....she has definitely come a very long way since then, hasn't she! Congratulations to the very happy couple!
