No question about it, mother-of-the-bride Kris Jenner is one tough cookie.
In an exclusive interview with E! News, Kris (the original) opened up about how she felt when Kim walked down the aisle, which member of the family helped her keep it together, who really took a tumble that night, and why the blushing bride reminds her of…Waldo?!
"Gosh, you know, I feel like I'm still at the wedding," Jenner said. "You kind of forget about the rehearsal dinner, because it happened so fast, and the next night we had a family dinner, and here it is, you know, a minute later and I just keep taking...you know, I took at the time of the wedding a lot of mental snapshots of the tent or the room and oh, my god, kim walking down the aisle and just everything that was going on and I get emotional.
"I want to remember that moment again, I cannot wait to see...you know, you want to see the pictures and the videotape to kind of relive it, because everyone was so nervous. It was one of the best days of my life."
She'll have to wait just a little while longer for the videotape—while People magazine featured exclusive photos of the wedding in their Sept. 5 issue, out today, E!'s two-part wedding special, Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event, airs Oct. 9 and 10.
But back to the big day—so, did Mama Kris cry at the ceremony?
"Yeah, I did," she said. "I had tissues stuffed down my dress, because I knew. I started to cry when I walked out, and then the minute Lamar grabbed my arm, I was good. I was like, 'I am safe, I am good, I'm not gonna fall,' nothing like that."
As for the rumors that Kris took a tumble during the reception, she denied that she ever lost her composure in that way. But you've gotta love a mom who's not above squealing on her daughter!
"No, actually it was Kourtney who tripped going down the aisle because she grabbed Mason," Kris said. "But no, I didn't fall. I don't think I fell. I hope I didn't fall, unless I had way too much champagne. I didn't think I fell."
Time (and the tape) will tell!
Meanwhile, proud mama that she is, Kris couldn't help but gush over the People shots of Kim and Kris, saying she was "stunned" when she saw it.
"She looks breathtakingly beautiful. It's sort of a picture of, like, if you had a fantasy of what you want your daughter to look like on her wedding day, it's like, wow. She looks fresh and beautiful and, most of all, happy."
As for the custom Vera Wang gown Kim chose to swap vows in, Kris said it was down to the wire choosing between that and Kim's second Vera creation of the night. In the end, it was the favorite of Kris (and, of course, Kim) that won out.
"This is like such a princess dress, so I felt like that's the dress," she said. "It's your moment. Wear the one that makes you feel the most magical."
Looking through the photos, she went on, "it triggers a memory. That's what the day's all about. Just a lot of wonderful memories. "
As for Kim and Kris' whirlwind honeymoon this week—they've been spotted en route to Paris, Naples and the Amalfi Coast—Kris said she hasn't spoken to her daughter all week and had no idea where she even went.
"I don't even know where she is," she said. "I don't know what city. I know she's in Italy, I saw a few photos myself…It's kind of weird, it's like, where in the world is Kim? It's like Waldo?"
Albeit a beautiful, just-married version. With a slightly more varied wardrobe.
