Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker Photos from the Italian Wedding

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are officially legally married. On May 15, a source confirmed the news to People after TMZ shared photos of the couple posing in front of a “Just Married” sign in wedding outfits in Santa Barbara, Calif.

According to People, they got married in front of a few close friends and family. “They had to get legally married first before their big Italian wedding, which is coming up very soon,” the source told People. “All the details are settled and the whole family, including all the children, are very excited.” On May 16, Kardashian and Barker both shared their black and white wedding photos via Instagram captioned, “Till death do us part.”

Lo and behold, the couple kicked off the festivities in Italy for their big wedding! Three days after their nuptials in California, Barker and Kardashian were photographed in Portofino. A few days later, the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan joined them. “Kourtney was very relaxed pre-wedding and in good spirits,” a source told E! News. “She’s just happy and so in love with Travis and not stressed about the details. They’re very excited to start this new chapter in their lives and make it even more official.”

The source continued, “Although she is already legally married to Travis, she is thrilled to finally have her fairy tale wedding and to see her friends and family see them exchange vows. The family will be heavily involved and all of their kids will be there and it was important to Kourtney and Travis that the kids were part of the ceremony.”

It was previously reported that the couple got married at One Love Marriage Chapel in Las Vegas in the early hours of April 4 after their appearance at the Grammy Awards. The ceremony lasted 30 minutes and an Elvis Presley impersonator was present. Notably lacking, however, was a proper marriage license.

“It is practice makes perfect.”

Following the reports, Kardashian shared photos from the spontaneous outing and clarified that the wedding was a practice run. “Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and some tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured into the only open chapel with an Elvis and are married (unlicensed),” she wrote. “It is practice makes perfect.” Barker also shared photos from the ceremony, writing, “What’s up in Vegas,” to which Kardashian replied, “Best night of my life.”

One Love Wedding Chapel owner Marty Frierson previously spoke to People about the headline-making ceremony. “I didn’t know who it was until they pulled over. I advertise like 24 hours, but they wanted to make sure I was still there. They paid and they asked for Elvis Presley, it was mandatory. I called back five minutes later and was like, ‘I got an Elvis,’ and they were there,” he said. “They came, got married, threw the bouquet down the aisle and danced to Elvis.”

Kardashian offered a preview of the evening during an April 6 appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” with her famous family. Responding to host Kimmel saying she got “fake married,” Kardashian said, “It’s not called a ‘fake marriage’. There was no possibility of getting a marriage license at that hour.” She pointed out that the couple intended to get married legally, but did not want to wait until morning to get the license. “We just did it anyway. It’s what’s in the heart. It’s just not legal.”

As you can imagine, several family members were in the know, including mom Kris Jenner and sister Khloé Kardashian, who took part in the ceremony via FaceTime. Kim Kardashian, on the other hand, said, “I was sleeping…She put it in the group chat like, ‘Oh, hey guys, by the way, I got married last night.’ I woke up to a million texts.”

The pair first met in 2006 when Barker was dating Paris Hilton, and Kim worked as her closet organizer and stylist. The Blink-182 drummer and the reality TV star have maintained a close friendship over the years, hanging out and having dinner on numerous occasions. They first sparked dating rumors in January 2021 and confirmed their romance on Instagram after Valentine’s Day. Shortly after, Barker had Kardashian’s first name tattooed on his chest.

After less than a year of dating, Barker proposed to Kardashian in October 2021 with an oversized oval engagement ring, surrounded by red roses and candles on the beach at the Rosewood Miramar Hotel in Montecito, California. Family members including Khloé, Kim and Kris joined the couple for an intimate dinner after the proposal.

Kardashian and Barker have made several public appearances in recent weeks. They attended the Oscars wearing matching all-black outfits on March 27, and Barker performed in the Academy band at the awards show. On April 3, Kardashian and Barker appeared at the Grammys in Las Vegas, showing their displays of affection on the red carpet and inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Before Barker, Kardashian dated model Younes Bendjima for three years. She and her ex Scott Disick also share three children: Mason, Penelope and Reign. Barker was previously married to Shanna Moakler, and the two have three children together: Atiana, Landon, and Alabama.
