It took four engagements, but heiress and reality-TV icon Paris Hilton has finally made it down the aisle!
Paris married venture capitalist Carter Reum Thursday at her grandfather Baron Hilton’s former Bel Air, California, estate. The bride, who’s been documenting her journey to the aisle for her new Peacock reality series Paris in Love, wore a demure custom gown designed by Oscar de La Renta reminiscent of the gown Hollywood legend Grace Kelly wore when she married Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956 and the gown sister Nicky Hilton wore when she married banking heir James Rothschild in 2015.
“Yesterday was the big day: My Wedding. I finally got to kiss my Prince and begin the happily ever after I’ve been dreaming of since I was a little girl. It was a true fairytale wedding,” the newlywed wrote on her blog.
The couple took inspiration from a clock when selecting Nov. 11 as the date for the wedding. “11:11 has always been my favorite time of day,” Paris told Vogue. “It’s my reminder to make a wish and be open to miracles. This date is special to Carter and I — it represents our love story, which both of us knew was meant to be.”
The ceremony began with a performance by Kim Petras, who sang Paris’ Billboard Top 10 hit single “Stars Are Blind.”
Paris and her father walked down the aisle to “Can’t Help Falling in Love With You.” Demi Lovato, a recent guest on the Netflix show Cooking with Paris, performed “I Will Always Love You” for Paris and Carter’s first dance as husband and wife.
“The reception was everything I wanted… chic, cute and fun..,” Paris shared on her blog. “I got to dance with my dad, and Carter had the most amazing dance with his mom. We had five of the best and most sentimental speeches from Nicky talking about our childhood and Courtney [the groom’s brother] talking about the man Carter has become.”
The special day was witnessed by family and close friends, including many reality TV stars.
Among Paris’ bridesmaids were cousins Farrah Aldjufrie and Brooke Wiederhorn, daughters of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ co-stars Kyle and Kim Richards. (Both were also in attendance.)
Paris’ former ‘The Simple Life’ co-star Nicole Richie was on the guest list, as was Kim Kardashian, who once worked as Paris’ stylist and was recently a guest on ‘Cooking with Paris.’ Kimora Lee Simmons came as Kim Kardashian’s plus-one.
Also in attendance were Evan Ross and his wife Ashlee Simpson Ross, and Paula Abdul.
Even the mother of the bride is a reality TV veteran, with Kathy’s credits including host of I Want to Be a Hilton and “friend-of” on recent seasons of ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ with her younger sisters, Kyle and Kim. (Paula Abdul apparently sang at the wedding reception, as Paris’ mom Kathy danced behind her…as you do.)
Per People, Paris and Carter have two more wedding celebrations planned. Those parties and last night’s festivities will all be coming to your screens soon on ‘Paris in Love.’ New episodes of the 13-episode series air Thursdays on Peacock.
“Throughout the years, I was always searching for my partner,” Paris told Vogue. “Not only someone to share my dreams with but a man to build a future together. I was looking for my equal. Someone who wasn’t fascinated with ‘Paris Hilton’ but instead, someone who saw the real me and loved me for me. Someone who is loving and kind. Someone to be a father to my future children. I’m so proud of my love story with Carter, and even more excited that it’s just beginning.”
