Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker had their hearts set on getting married in an ancient monastery in Portofino, Italy. However, their plans were soon dashed when the couple realized the Catholic Church was off-limits due to their strict regulations. Kardashian and Barker shared their struggles in their Hulu special, “Till Death Do Us Part Kourtney & Travis,” where they gave fans a behind-the-scenes look at their wedding planning process.
The couple revealed that they wanted to recreate the iconic 1991 Guns ‘n Roses music video for “November Rain.” Unfortunately, their plans were quickly thwarted when they realized the Catholic Church would not allow them to use their facilities without proper documentation or a one-year Catholic course.
Thankfully, the couple’s friend, Domenico Dolce, came to their rescue by recreating a church on his sprawling property in Portofino. The process involved a helicopter dropping parts for a piano over several days.
Kardashian and Barker shared that they trusted Domenico to carry out their vision and create an authentic experience for them. The couple revealed that while they let some details go, they just wanted to get married and did not care about the minor details.
The Portofino wedding was the third one that Kardashian and Barker had in roughly two months. They previously tied the knot in Las Vegas in early April and had a Santa Barbara courthouse ceremony in mid-May.
Despite their initial setback, the couple’s dream wedding came to fruition, thanks to their creativity and the help of their friends. The couple’s wedding special is available for streaming on Hulu for fans who want an exclusive look at the lavish event.
