Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker Will Host a Larger, More Formal Wedding This Year

Following their unofficial Las Vegas elopement on April 4, Kardashian shared pictures from the intimate ceremony—and hinted that this small celebration was "practice" for the party to come.

Just two days after making their way from the Grammys to a chapel in Las Vegas, Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker are sharing more intimate details (and photos!) from their elopement. On Instagram, Kardashian posted a slideshow of photos that documented the pair's impromptu marriage ceremony. Though she mentioned that that they didn't secure a marriage license ahead of the "nuptials"—which means they aren't legally husband and wife (yet!)—she did hint that a formal ceremony is in the works. "Found these in my camera roll," the reality star wrote in her caption. "Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2 am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license). Practice makes perfect." Practice for a larger wedding, perhaps?

These images revealed other key details about this celebration, too: The pair dressed in matching leather jackets during the proceedings; Kardashian held onto a bouquet of roses; and an Elvis Presley impersonator officiated the I dos. "It was a total joke and something fun for them to do. They were out at Delilah on Sunday night after the Grammys and had a few drinks and decided it would be funny to go to a chapel and get 'married,'" an insider told E! News. "They had a little too much fun in Vegas and thought it would be hilarious."

While the pair had the time of their lives celebrating, they are planning to formally exchange vows sometime in 2022. "Travis and Kourtney are planning to legally get married this year," the source added. "They have been focusing on having a baby, but their plan is to tie the knot before the end of the year." The bride-to-be has been "really relaxed" throughout the planning process alongside Barker, but she is leaning on her mother for support to bring the big day to life.

The moment they walk down the aisle in front of a crowd will be also be meaningful for the pair, since they didn't tell anyone about their plans to unofficially elope in Las Vegas until right before the service; the chapel owner mentioned that there were just four people in attendance. "It was totally impulse," a source revealed to Us Weekly. "They had had such an amazing night and thought it would be fun." Though a family affair is in the works, the insider noted that it was "a special night just for the two of them."
