Kim Kardashian paid a special tribute to her late father during her wedding ceremony in California on Saturday evening.
Attorney Robert Kardashian was very much in guests’ thoughts as the reality TV star exchanged vows with basketball player Kris Humphries at a private estate in Montecito thanks to a passage in the program at the lavish event.

The bride wrote, “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.”

The socialite’s stepfather, Bruce Jenner, walked Kardashian down the aisle as her sisters Khloe and Kourtney served as matron and maid of honor respectively. Younger siblings Kylie and Kendal Jenner and the groom’s sister Kaela were bridesmaids.

The bride wore a strapless, ivory Vera Wang gown, Guiseppe Zanotti shoes and a jewelled headpiece, according to Eonline.com reports, while the groom and his groomsmen all wore Ermenegildo Zegna.

The traditional Christian service began just after 6.30pm local time and lasted 30 minutes.

The 440 guests included Demi Lovato, Lindsay Lohan and former Spice Girls star Melanie Brown, who danced to music provided by Robin Thicke, DJ Cassidy and Earth, Wind & Fire.

The night wasn’t all perfect, according to Life & Style magazine – Stevie Wonder was supposed to perform as a surprise treat for the bride but he was a no-show.
