It was the most lavish celebrity wedding of the year, but Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are happy to report that all their expectations were met – and more!
“It was like we were in heaven,” Kardashian tells this week’s PEOPLE in a cover story with an exclusive wedding photo album.
Adds Humphries: “I’m going to remember how perfect it was.”
According to wedding planner Sharon Sacks, the couple mixed tradition with over-the-top glamour at their Aug. 20 ceremony at a private Montecito, Calif., estate.
