However, the wedding was not official as the couple did not obtain a marriage license prior to the ceremony.

On May 15, the couple had an official wedding (after acquiring a license) held at a courthouse in downtown Santa Barbara, Calif. The ceremony was reportedly very intimate, with only Kardashian’s maternal grandmother, Mary Jo Campbell, and Barker’s father, Randy Barker, to witness the nuptials.

The reality star confirmed the wedding when she posted a slew of black-and-white photos on her official Instagram page with the caption: “Till death do us part.”

Less than a week after their official nuptials in Santa Barbara, the couple had a third wedding celebration, this time in Portofino, Italy. The event included multiday festivities, celebrity performances and 50 of their closest family and friends.
