Kourtney Kardashian's Wedding Dresses
The bride wore numerous Dolce & Gabbana looks during her Italian wedding weekend, starting with a sheer maroon bodycon arrival dress paired with a fuzzy wrap around her shoulders. She was later photographed wearing an archival bustier-style black mini dress with an image of Mother Mary on the front, which she accessorized with black gloves and a sheer black veil lined with blue lace trim.
For the wedding ceremony, the bride donned a one-of-a-kind silk lace and satin mini dress—but the standout detail was her dramatic hand-embroidered veil. The brand's Instagram page revealed that the headpiece, which featured a large depiction of the Virgin Mary and the words "family loyalty respect," was inspired by one of Barker's tattoos. She completed the look with white gloves and white lace pumps. The groom, for his part, wore a bespoke double-breasted jacket with peaked lapels and classic trousers in superfine Italian black wool with tuxedo details in black silk satin.
Following the ceremony, Kardashian changed into a black lace mini reception dress with matching black lace gloves and stockings.
A few days before the Italian fête, the couple were legally married at a Santa Barbara courthouse in front of an intimate group of guests, including Kardashian's grandmother Mary Jo "MJ" Campbell and Barker's father, Randy Barker. The bride donned a vintage-inspired white mini dress with an embellishment on the bodice, and she wrapped a long white veil around her head. Barker kept his look simple with a black-on-black outfit.

Kravis' nearest and dearest traveled to Portofino, Italy, for the most recent nuptials. The weekend-long festivities kicked off with a welcome dinner on Friday, where guests enjoyed a classic Italian menu with handmade pasta, seafood, and coffee parfaits. The couple was spotted lounging on a boat and soaking up the sun ahead of the event kickoff.
The groom's daughter, Alabama, shared a series of Instagram Stories that gave a glimpse into the after-party, where guests danced to music from Beyoncé, the Jackson 5, and Barker's own band Blink-182. The couple's close friend, Machine Gun Kelly, reportedly sang a song to the newlyweds while his fiancée Megan Fox looked on. Also in attendance were the Kardashian kids, including Kourtney's three children with ex Scott Disick, along with her nieces and nephews.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's Las Vegas Elopement
Prior to their official ceremonies, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker first got married around 2:00 a.m. on Monday, April 4 in a Las Vegas chapel, shortly after the drummer performed at the Grammy Awards. The duo opted to have an Elvis impersonator preside over the ultra-private nuptials, which was deemed as a "practice" run since they didn't have a marriage license. Kardashian shared a slideshow of photos from the microceremony on Instagram, writing, "Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license). Practice makes perfect."
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker's Engagement
In October 2021, Barker proposed at sunset in Montecito, California, preparing a voluminous display of red roses likely installed by Kardashian family florist Jeff Leatham. (Montecito continues to make headlines as celebs like Oprah, Ariana Grande and Meghan Markle are residents in this exclusive enclave of Coastal California.) Following his declaration of love, Barker arranged a private dinner with their family members and close friends. "Forever," they each commented on social media.
A few days after the proposal, Kardashian shared a few intimate snapshots from Barker's proposal. "I woke up all night thinking it was a dream," she wrote.
This was the first Kardashian family wedding since Kim Kardashian's nuptials to Kanye West in 2014. Here's what to know about Kourtney's engagement ring and the couple's relationship.
Kourtney Kardashian's Engagement Ring Details
The rocker popped the question with a massive oval engagement ring, which Kendall Jenner and Kim both admired. Kourtney Kardashian's engagement ring was designed by celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz (also the go-to Kardashian family jeweler), and her bauble is estimated to hover at around $1 million in value. The piece, according to several experts, is at least 10 carats in size. "The ring looks to be a large solitaire oval diamond ring with a pavé band," notes Lily Raven of Corvo Jewelry. "The main stone looks to be at least 10 carats. The setting might be a delicate hidden halo, but I'd guess it's a discreet prong setting… to allow the stone to be the main star."
"It's a beautiful hybrid between classic and modern styles, blending the two in a bold way," says Kamal Patel of KAMAL. "There seems to be a hidden halo setting or a pave around the Oval."
Lindsey Scoggins of Lindsey Scoggins Studio says the diamond is displayed within a classic, four-prong setting. "It appears to be a very delicate pave band," she explains. "This type of ring is for a couple who focuses on quality and what kind of investment they are making in a significant heirloom. The center diamond gets all the attention so it should be very well cut to really sparkle."

The eldest Kardashian sister is one of many celebs to wear an oval engagement ring, joining the likes of celebs like Blake Lively and Hailey Bieber. "Elongated stones have been trending for a while and have a way of elegantly lengthening the finger," muses Scoggins. "Women are getting more familiar with different cuts thanks to social media and the massive amounts of digital information now, so fancy cuts like ovals and emeralds are more popular than ever."
"As of late, simplicity is key," Raven says. "Tidy and neat elements are making a comeback. There's a restraint involved in style and design these days that allows for the details to be the star. Classic gold hoops, simple bands and traditional chains are the new go-to. In other words, accessorizing is an art best-served-chic." Shop Kardashian engagement ring lookalikes below.
Inside Kourtney and Travis' Romance
Kardashian and Barker sparked engagement rumors for quite some time within their one year of dating. "They are head over heels and never experienced love like this," a source told E! News early in their relationship. "Kourtney is the happiest. Travis adores her and treats her so well. It's very different than her other relationships and all positive."
"Kourtney and Travis have talked about marriage," another insider told the same network. "It was an instant connection and bond ever since they became romantically involved… They are in it for the long haul."
Prior to Barker, Kardashian notably dated Scott Disick, with whom she co-parents three children, Mason, Penelope and Reign. The couple ultimately went their separate ways due to Disick's addiction issues, which was a big topic on the final season of the smash E! reality show. Kourtney was also briefly linked to Justin Bieber and Younes Bendjima.
Barker is a dad of three, including his daughter Alabama Barker, 15, son Landon Barker, 17, as well as his stepdaughter Atiana De La Hoya, 22. He has been married twice, first to Melissa Kennedy and Shanna Moakler. His split from his second wife was temporarily put on hold in 2008 when Barker was in a private plane crash. He and DJ AM Goldstein (who later died from an overdose) were the only survivors, while four others, including two pilots, perished.
Prior to the engagement revelation, Barker was coy about his evolving relationship status with Kardashian in interviews. "I mean, it's everywhere," he told Men's Health in a May 2021 interview. The couple shares a longtime friendship. They first met in 2006 back when Barker dated Paris Hilton.
