Khloe Kardashian married L.A. Lakers star Lamar Odom on Sunday afternoon at the Beverly Hills mansion of family friend Irving Azoff. Their whirlwind courtship of just one month included a hastily pulled together nuptial event and culminated with the exchanging of wedding vows before a camera crew that was capturing footage for reality television.
Two hundred guests witnessed the marriage ceremony, including Khloe’s mom Kris Jenner, step-father Bruce Jenner, and siblings Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Robert Kardashian. The bridesmaids wore short strapless lilac dresses. Guests were served cupcakes that were decorated in purple and yellow in a nod to the Lakers colors.
Celebrity guests included Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Osbourne, Brittny Gastineau, LaLa Vasquez. Howard Stern sidekick John Melendez and his wife Suzanna Keller made quite an impression – with ‘Studdering John’ revealing his belly for the guests.
On the grooms guest list were Coach Phil Jackson, Sugar Ray Leonard, Michael Yo, Kobe Bryant, Sasha Vujacic, Luke Walton and his girlfriend Bre Ladd.
Odom, 29, who has two children from a previous relationship, will be heading off to preseason training, with his first game slated for October 7. He recently signed a four-year $33 million contract with the Lakers.
UPDATE: September 30, 2009 – Rumors are swirling that the entire nuptial ceremony was a sham wedding that was orchestrated by E! for the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality show. LISTEN to proof here.
