And now it's on to the happily ever after.
E!'s Kim Kardashian and basketball star Kris Humphries were married this evening at a private estate in Montecito, Calif., surrounded by friends and family, E! News and People exclusively confirm.
The bride wore a custom Vera Wang gown, while the groom looked spiffy in an Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo with a white jacket and tie. Husband and wife exchanged Lorraine Schwartz wedding bands, the same designer behind Kim's 20.5-carat engagement ring.
The multipart festivities had been cloaked in confidentiality from the start—minus the fact that a camera crew was often on hand for E!'s exclusive behind-the-scenes wedding special (airing in two parts on Oct. 9-10)—from the day the $250 invitations arrived swearing guests to secrecy (and a black-and-white wardrobe) to the not-until-go-time reveal of Kim's gown.
In a KIIS-FM interview with Seacrest yesterday, Kim had expressed surprise over how calm she felt—though she admitted to already freaking out over "everything and anything" about a week ago.
While the newlyweds are forgoing an exotic honeymoon for now, the party sure isn't over. Mr. and Mrs. Kris Humphries and their guests will cap off the night with a lavish reception nearby. Kim said that she was hoping all of her guests would appreciate how "fun and glitz and glam" the night was going to be. "It will be so intimate, and so...really heartfelt. And they will think, 'Oh my God, that dress.'"
Exclusive details on the wedding blowout of the year are still to come!
