Reality personality Khloe Kardashian enjoyed a fantasy wedding on September 27, 2009 with her love of the past month, Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom. A steady stream of stars, including Kobe and Vanessa Bryant, Kelly Osbourne, Adrienne Bailon, Ryan Seacrest, Alan Thicke, Lola Vasquez and Brittany Gastinau, gathered at the estate of music manager Irving Azoff to witness a wedding arranged perhaps in haste, but with a lot of heart.
Clutching a bouquet of roses, lilies of the valley and stephanotis, the bride began her walk down the aisle with her escort, Olympic champion and stepfather Bruce Jenner. Taking on the dual role of maids of honor were sisters Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, while siblings Kendall and Kylie Jenner joined three of Khloe’s close friends as bridesmaids. Donning dresses which ranged from a heliotrope hue to a dreamy aubergine, the female family members filed down the aisle with the bride, who had donned a strapless, white Vera Wang creation accented with a lavender sash to tie in with the colors of her wedding party, People magazine reported.
A 10-piece orchestra provided the soundtrack for the early evening event, in which the bride received a wedding band to accompany her 9-carat diamond engagement ring.
Following the nuptials, the newlyweds swayed to the sound of Anita Baker’s “Angel” for their first dance, then enjoyed a moving rendition of “You Are So Beautiful,” as performed by Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds during a reception in which 250 family members and friends sampled slices of a cake created by Hansen’s Bakery and servings of filet mignon and wild salmon fillet. As guests departed, each received cupcakes as a sweet souvenir of a day when two souls were united as one.
