    Next on our wonderful weddings list is the same-sex vow swap of Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi:

    EXCLUSIVE: Get Kim's Wedding Viewing Kit

    When: Aug. 16, 2008

    Where: At the couple's Beverly Hills home

    On the List: No famous pals here, just 30 close friends and family members, though Joshua Radin was on hand to serenade the couple.

    Can't Top This: An item since 2004, Ellen announced she and Portia would tie the knot the day after the California Supreme Court struck down a ban on gay marriage.

    But beyond being just a groundbreaking union, the talk show host and her girlfriend pulled off an intimate and stylish affair well worth the wait. Surrounded by candles, roses and romantic drapery, the blushing brides both wore Zac Posen and swapped rings by Neil Lane.

    Motivational author Wayne Dyer led the ceremony, followed by an at-home reception featuring a vegan menu to reflect their meatless lifestyle, finished off by a vegan red velvet cake from local hotspot, Sweet Lady Jane.

    Sweet, indeed. 

    Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event  premieres Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/PT and concludes Monday at 9 p.m. ET/PT
