In the E! Channel two-night special for Kim Kardashian’s wedding Sunday and Monday, the cameras caught all of the drama, parties and over-the-top emotions as Kardashian and the family tried to pull off her dream wedding.
Kris Humphries proposed to Kardashian with a reported $2 million ring by celebrity jeweler and family friend Lorraine Schwartz. It includes a 16.5-carat emerald cut center, flanked by a pair of 2-carat trapezoids. When the news broke, designers sent numerous sketches to Kardashian, in hopes of getting the bid to design her three wedding dresses. Vera Wang was selected because she’s “the queen of wedding gowns,” and a family friend, as quoted from the episode.
Since the engagement, Kardashian and her family worked with wedding planners, catering with Wolfgang Puck and numerous wedding details. However, as part one of the two-night event revealed, some things didn’t go as planned.
The drama between Humphries and Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian’s sister, hit a high note. Khloe Kardashian appears to be testing the limits on what Humphries’ real intentions are toward Kim Kardashian. One of Khloe Kardashian’s wedding gifts to the couple was hosting the engagement party. There was drama caught on camera when Khloe Kardashian cornered Humphries’ to investigate on how true are his intentions, which ended in an argument.
However, instead of an engagement party, the Kardashians might want to give Humphries a watch.
Kim Kardashian and her mother, Kris Jenner, set up several appointments to register for wedding gifts. Humphries appeared to be overwhelmed with the Kardashian women taking over and letting him have little say in the details. Humphries seems to be more reserved, whereas Kim Kardashian was hand-selecting Hermés table settings.
Kelsey Tschanen, a fourth-year in history, said she thinks Humphries is proving that actions on-air speak louder then words.
“I tried to give (Humphries) a chance in the beginning,” Tschanen said. “But now I see that he’s really annoying and rude.”
When it came down to the catering, Kim Kardashian stuck with black and white wedding colors and selected a $20,000 black and white cake by Patrick Hansen of Hansen’s Cakes. Humphries, on the other hand, asked if they could have “food like at the state fair.”
Let’s just say that mom, Jenner, wasn’t impressed.
As the first episode wrapped up, Humphries finally got some time with his friends at a tux fitting. When Kim Kardashian walked in and proceeded to take control, he had reached his groom limit.
The second part of Kim Kardashian’s wedding dove right into just a few weeks before the big day. The stress was starting to spike. When it came down to the real reason for the ceremony, Kim Kardashian and Humphrises put aside their disagreements and remembered the love they have for each other.
As the final hours drew near, Kim Kardashian, Humphries and Kim Kardashian’s step-father, Bruce Jenner, found some of Kim Kardashian’s deceased father’s belongings and it brought back tearful memories. Kim Kardashian wanted to have a part of her father with her throughout the ceremony. She took one of her father’s old shirts and cut out three hearts to sew one in each wedding dress.
On Aug. 20, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries tied the knot with over-the-top decorations and a star-studded audience.
All of the details fell into place and Kim Kardashian walked down the aisle to marry Humphries.
Some OSU students who tuned in to watch the wedding had some strong feelings about the Kardashians’ celebrity lifestyles the “reality” the show portrays.
Nicole Koenig, a first-year in athletic training, said between classes, activities and homework, the wedding doesn’t make the top of the priority list.
“I have more important things to do then sit and watch the Kardashian wedding,” Koenig said. “She’s just another reality star and who knows if their marriage will last.”
However, Erin Wagoner, a first-year in biology, watched to get a glimpse of their celebrity wedding. Wagoner said one of her friends saw the couple at New York City’s Fashion Week and, to the friend, the honeymoon had ended.
“I will watch it because I think the wedding will be beautiful,” Wagoner said. “But, I have a friend who worked at Fashion Week in New York City, and she told me when Kim and Kris walked in, they went to different areas in the room. Humphries seemed aggravated as he flicked his finger across his iPhone.”
