Kim Kardashian On Her Wedding: It Was Like 'Heaven'

Kim Kardashian has opened up about her dream wedding to New Jersey Nets star Kris Humphries.

The beautiful bride graces the cover of People magazine’s September 5 issue — adorned with a $2.5 million diamond headpiece, but conspicuously missing her groom – and dishes on her lavish ceremony inside the pages of the mag.

“It was like we were in heaven,” Kim, 30, told People of the August 20 wedding, while Kris added he will always remember how “perfect” it was.

Despite the over-the-top ceremony — attended by over 400 guests and filmed for a TV special — Kim said glamor was not the couple’s “main goal.”

“It was really about our family and each other,” she said.

Jen Garcia, People magazine’s assistant editor, stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday to reveal behind-the-scenes details of their upcoming issue, which boasts exclusive wedding photos.

“We sorted through thousands of pictures,” Jen told Kit Hoover and guest co-host Arsenio Hall of how the mag chose the cover photo.

”…Looking for ones that didn’t have Kris?” Arsenio joked, questioning the magazine’s choice to feature a solo shot of Kim.

“That’s not true!” Jen said.

“You see Kris… in a bush!” Arsenio laughed, pointing to a small inset photo that appears on the cover.

“It’s all about the bride. We wanted her,” Jen said, defending the magazine (which paid $1.5 million for rights to the event photographs). “It’s her day, we wanted her on the cover.

“[Kris] has got a little height on her,” she added. “It’s kind of tough to get them in the [same] shot.”

Jen told Kit and Arsenio that fans will see plenty pictures of Kris inside the magazine’s pages, and added that the newlyweds “want kids.”

“I think we’re gonna see little KKs running around soon — I’d say probably within a year,” she said. “They want a big family for sure.”
