Rich Wilkerson Jr., a 30-year-old pastor from North Miamiwas a sight for sore eyes. He performed the ceremony. Apparently both stars said their own vows sweetly and Kris Jenner cried during the ceremony. Awww.
There were plenty of famous faces and family members in attendance like John Legend, who performed “All of Me” at the reception. Guests sat around marble tables for the performance and extravagant dinner, after receiving seating instructions on fancy stationery.

Well, everything went according to plan except a few notable guests were absent like Kim's brother Rob. He was in Europe for the festivities, but TMZ reports that he jetted back to L.A. before attending the nuptials after a family fight of some sort. Yikes.
And, Beyonce and Jay Z didn't show up after Jay was supposedly confirmed for the wedding and his wife was a “maybe.” Bey did wish the newlyweds well on Instagram saying, “Wishing you a lifetime of unconditional love. God bless your beautiful family.” However she has been criticized by a lot of fans. Stay tuned!
