Tinted cars, traffic congestion and security at every entrance didn’t stop fans from trying to get a glimpse of the celebrity couple.

Fans did get to see Kim’s brother Robert and singer Robin Thicke drive by, but not the bride and groom.

People and E! reported Kardashian wore an ivory gown designed by Vera Wang. Her stepfather, Bruce Jenner, walked her down the aisle in front of 440 guests, including Demi Lovato, Mario Lopez, Eva Longoria, Sugar Ray Leonard, Alan Thicke and Lindsay Lohan.

    Who really cares about these people? They cannot act, they do no good. They have some show on cable that I hear is ridiculous. Wanna be Camelot?

    I don’t know of i will be able to sleep without seeing the wedding photos.

    It’s their money and they have the right to use it any way they see fit, however, I think spending this much money on a wedding is absolutely shameful. These are self-absorbed, spoiled people wasting money that could be used to save lives on a marriage that won’t last a year.

    This is OUR tax dollars at work, subsidizing a lame publicity stunt. Since publicity is a BUSINESS EXPENSE, every dollar that anybody spent for this wedding, including the guests’ gifts and travel, is fully TAX-DEDUCTIBLE.

      Please Rev, leave the jesus juice alone!

      @ “Rev”….of so true johnny. Do yourself a favor use a different name. As a Rev the trust/comment has zero weight. Are you the same one that has your Usher girlfriends bringing the collection plates to the back to count the proceeds to make sure you can go clubbing for the weekend. You’re a scam and so is your “name”, go back to sleep. Its Monday.


    You know, I think what bothers me more is that this young woman doesn’t have a clue what a true marriage is all about. She met this guy and 6mths later based on the sized of the ring and his annual income she agrees to marry. She wants to be the next LaLa or the next name on the list for celebrity divorced. She lived at home with Mom and has no clue what it will take to produce a good marriage..she doesn’t how he is when he gets up in the he is when you come to bed with her hand tied down or what she looks like w/o the makeup. She knows absolutely NOTHING about him. Mark my words she will be divorced in less than a year once their YOUNG INEXPERIENCED personalties begin to Clash.

      Not after he re-signs a new contract you bumbling idiot!

  9. Josh says:

    Why does the American public need to be notified that two people were married? Especially a talentless socialite who reached celebrity status because of who shes slept with! And Humphries, Good luck buddy, hope you signed a pre-nup! And we wonder why this country is in trouble.

      How long do you think this marriage last?
