Celebrity entrepreneur and reality TV star Kim Kardashian said "I do" to professional basketball player Kris Humphries on Saturday in a highly anticipated, black-tie affair attended by more than 450 of their closest friends and, of course, cameras from the E! news network to document it all.

Dressed in a classic, full princess-style ivory Vera Wang gown, Kardashian, 30, walked down the aisle on the arm of her stepfather, Olympic great Bruce Jenner. This was her second wedding, and Humphries' first.

"The moment she turned the corner and she was on Bruce's arm, everyone was stunned," Jen Garcia of People magazine told "Good Morning America" today.

Humphries, 26, met Kardashian at the altar in a white lapel tuxedo jacket, shirt and bow tie with black pants -- all by Ermenegildo Zegna.

Kardashian's sisters, Kourtney, 32, and Khloe, 27, stood by as the maid and matron of honor, respectively, while her younger half-sisters, Kendall, 15, and Kylie Jenner, 14, along with Humphries' sister Kaela, served as bridesmaids.

All five wore ivory, silk organza mermaid gowns, according to E!.

Kourtney's 21-month-old son, Mason Disick, stole the show as the ring bearer, working the crowd as he walked down the aisle.

The approximately 30-minute, outdoor ceremony, led by Humphries' family's pastor, was held at a lavish, Montecito, Calif., estate reportedly owned by former Google executive Eric Schmidt.

People.com reported that Kardashian paid homage to her late father, attorney Robert Kardashian, who died of cancer in 2003, in the wedding program. The message read, "I so wish my dad could be here today to walk me down the aisle. But I know in a way he is here, and I feel his loving presence all around me. I love and miss you, Dad."

"I did hear that it was an emotional, three-hankie situation, which, you know, you can't pay for," celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss told "GMA."

After the 'I Do's,' the Party

Kardashian changed clothes immediately after the ceremony, donning the second of three dresses she would wear by night's end, all custom-made by family friend Vera Wang.

"For the reception Kim then changed into sort of a mermaid dress with organza leaves, petals on the skirt," Julie Dam, assistant managing editor at People told "GMA" in an interview on Sunday. "And then later on she changed, yet again, into a V-neck dress with a circle skirt."

Plenty of celebrities were in attendance on Saturday too, all dressed in black-and-white, per strict instructions from the bride.

Among the guests were Kathie Lee Gifford, a close friend of Kardashian's mom, Kris Jenner, as well as Justin Bieber, Christina Aguilera, Serena Williams, Demi Lovato, George Lopez, Mario Lopez, Eva Longoria and boyfriend Eduardo Cruz, Avril Lavigne, Lindsay Lohan and her mom, Dina, and, of course, Humphries' New Jersey Nets teammates. But there was apparently some last-minute drama with the list.

"Basically, she invited too many people and the space couldn't fit [them] so the fire marshall stepped in and said you're going to have to narrow your numbers or you can't have your wedding," said Juliette Izon of Life & Style Weekly.

Those who made the list were treated to a gourmet, four-course meal prepared by Hollywood chef to the stars Wolfgang Puck. Reception entertainment included performances by Robin Thicke, who sang his hit "Angels" for the couple's first dance, and the legendary R&B band Earth, Wind and Fire.
