Khloé Kardashian & Lamar Odom Are Married!

First she took Miami. Now she has taken Lamar Odom to be her lawfully wedded husband.

E! News has confirmed that Khloé Kardashian and the Los Angeles Lakers star swapped vows Sunday night in front of family, friends and team members (of both the NBA and E! variety) at a private estate in Beverly Hills.

The glowing bride wore a tiered strapless Vera Wang gown, accented with a lavender sash. She carried white roses and was escorted down the aisle by stepdad Bruce Jenner, with sisters Kim and Kourtney at her side, while a 10-piece orchestra played in the background.

Amid the hum of hovering helicopters, the couple exchanged vows in front of rose-covered arches.

There was, of course, no trouble keeping up with the Kardashians this weekend—all of them were at the wedding, along with Ryan Seacrest, Chelsea Handler, Kelly Osbourne, Kobe and Vanessa Bryant, Alan Thicke, Joe Francis, Joel Silver, Lara Spencer, Brittny Gastineau, Sugar Ray, Adrian Bailon and Lala Vasquez.

Kim and Kourtney served as maids of honor dressed in different shades of lavender, while littler ones Kendall and Kylie Jenner were bridesmaids along with Khadijah Haqq, Malika Haqq and Lauren London. Odom's close friends Gennaro De Gregorio and Jamie Sangouthai shared the role of best man. Groomsmen included his new brother-in-law, Rob Kardashian, and Robert Davis, Alex Harris, Lester Knispel and Jeff Schwartz.

Still gleaming on Khloé's left hand was the 9-carat diamond ring Lamar bought her after a whirlwind courtship that began just this summer when they met at a party. Ironically, before re-signing with the NBA champion Lakers in July, Odom had entertained an offer from the Miami Heat—so he wouldn't have been playing too far away from the South Beach outpost of Khloé and sister Kourtney's boutique, Dash, just in case.

Lakers coach Phil Jackson, team general manager Mitch Kupchak and Odom's fellow pro ballers Ron Artest, Derek Fisher, Luke Walton and Sasha Vujacic were also headed for the big-and-tall table at the black-tie reception following the ceremony.

Khloé donned a clingy, one-shoulder white dress for the party. Her hubby lost the jacket and the newlyweds enjoyed a first dance to Anita Baker's "Angel."

Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds later serenaded the couple with "You Are So Beautiful." The cake was a black-and-white, multi-tiered affair from local bakery Hansen's Cake. In honor of the groom's notorious sweet tooth, bowls of candy were laid out around the tent, which was decked out to resemble a nightclub, with wood-paneled walls, white carpet and chandeliers.

Odom kept his cool throughout the various rituals until best man De Gregorio's speech, which left him in tears for nearly 10 minutes. Mother of the bride Kris Jenner couldn't hold back the waterworks either when she addressed the crowd, but Kourtney and Kim kept the guests laughing.

Towards the end of the evening, Khloé and the rest of the bridal party changed yet again—this time into purple sweats with "Mr. & Mrs. Odom" written across the back.

Guests certainly didn't go hungry. After a four-course meal, friends and family took home cupcakes as a parting gift.

The whole shindig was pulled together in just nine days, according to Kris Jenner.

Prewedding festivities included a luxurious night of dining and spa treatments for Khloé and her gal-pals and a low-key bachelor party for Odom at STK in West Hollywood. A funkier affair at Les Deux had been planned, but the 29-year-old father of two opted for a more sedate dinner with some Laker buddies, Rob Kardashian, Joe Francis and Kourtney's boyfriend, Scott Disick.

The wedding party further revved up for the big day with a rehearsal dinner last night at The Lobster, a yummy seafood spot in Santa Monica, where the betrothed couple dined on the restaurant's titular dish.
