This Sunday, Kourtney Kardashian married Travis Barker in Portofino, Italy.
The bride wore a one-of-a-kind Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda lace and satin corset mini dress inspired by 1960s Italian lingerie, all accompanied by a sweeping veil. Hand embroidered into the headpiece were flowers inspired by the seaside town’s many Mediterranean gardens, as well as a depiction of the Virgin Mary. The religious iconography, based on one of Barker’s tattoos, is accompanied by text that reads “family loyalty respect.” She styled it with a pair of tulle gloves and lace pumps. “Designing my dresses with Domenico and Stefano has been a dream come true in every way,” Kardashian tells Vogue. Barker’s black double breasted suit was also designed by the Italian house.
The couple had noted fashion photographer, Ellen Von Unwerth, capture portraits of their nuptials.
The wedding took place at Villa Olivetta, a home on the idyllic estate of Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. The turn of the century dwelling includes a castellated lookout tower, terraces for al fresco dining, and sweeping views of the crystalline Mediterranean. On the hillside grounds are olive, eucalyptus, and cypress groves, romantic pathways, and fences made from natural knotted branches. As for the interiors? As one would expect, they make a stylish maximalist statement: Vogue’s editor at large Hamish Bowles compared the aesthetic to “Alice tumbling into the surreal Wonderland at the bottom of the rabbit hole” when he visited in 2005.
In attendance? Kardashian’s extended family—including sisters Kim, Khloé, Kendall, Kylie, children Mason, Penelope, and Reign, as well as mother Kris. Kim and Kylie’s eldest children, North and Stormi, respectively, also made the journey, as did Barker’s son Landon, daughter Alabama and step-daughter Atiana De La Hoya.
The Sunday nuptials were the pinnacle of a multi-day, Dolce Vita affair: the weekend kicked off on Friday with a welcome dinner at Ristorante Puny, followed by a Saturday afternoon boat trip.
Weeks prior, the couple attended a final fitting at the Dolce & Gabbana atelier in Milan, where they tried on their custom looks while Domenico Dolce looked on.
