On August 20, 2011, Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries exchanged vows in a lavish ceremony at a private estate in Montecito, California. The four-hour wedding special, Kim’s Fairytale Wedding, aired on E! just three weeks later. However, the fairy tale was short-lived, as the couple’s marriage lasted only 72 days before Kardashian filed for divorce on October 31, citing irreconcilable differences.
The whirlwind romance began in December 2010, when the couple first met at a basketball game. Humphries proposed to Kardashian in May 2011, and the couple was married just five months later. Kardashian wore a custom-made Vera Wang gown for the ceremony, which was attended by over 400 guests, including Ryan Seacrest, Eva Longoria, and Demi Lovato.
Despite the grandeur of the wedding, the marriage was short-lived. Kardashian cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the divorce, and Humphries requested an annulment on the grounds of fraud. The divorce proceedings were highly publicized, and the couple eventually reached a settlement in April 2013.
Kardashian has since moved on and is now married to Kanye West. The couple has four children together. Humphries, meanwhile, is currently engaged to Hayley Bendel.
Kardashian and Humphries’ marriage was brief, but it was certainly memorable. The couple’s 72-day union is still one of the most talked-about celebrity marriages in recent memory.
