It was the most lavish celebrity wedding of the year, but Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries are happy to report that all their expectations were met – and more!
"It was like we were in heaven," Kardashian tells this week's PEOPLE in a cover story with an exclusive wedding photo album.
Adds Humphries: "I'm going to remember how perfect it was."
According to wedding planner Sharon Sacks, the couple mixed tradition with over-the-top glamour at their Aug. 20 ceremony at a private Montecito, Calif., estate.
"Kim loves black and white and so does Kris," says Sacks. "They have this Hollywood royalty feeling and the black and white represented formality. But tradition was very important to them."
Wearing a custom-designed Vera Wang ball gown, Kardashian, 30, says she "felt like a princess." But, she adds, "Glam aside, that wasn’t our main goal. It was really about our family and each other.”
E! News will air a two-part special, Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event, on Oct. 9 and 10.
The new issue of PEOPLE, on newstands Friday, will feature exclusive personal photos from Kim's fairytale wedding.
