Less than 24 hours after tying the knot in a star-studded ceremony in Bel Air, Paris shared an intimate look at the ceremony and reception, which served as just the first events in the couple’s multi-day wedding celebrations, which will continue into the weekend.
The official wedding images show Paris and Carter exchanging their vows – and then a kiss – at the altar, hitting the dancefloor with their celebrity guests.
Hilton went on to rock four different wedding gowns throughout the evening’s soiree.

And the Bride wore FOUR dresses! Paris looked sensation in three separate bridal outfits for the occasion, including her Oscar de la Renta gown, and a mini-wedding dress ensemble for the reception
The newlyweds celebrated with a host of A-list guests, including Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, Emma Roberts, and Ashley Benson.
After the photos were published, Paris, who had been engaged three times before Carter popped the question earlier this year, also opened up about the overwhelming emotion she felt during her wedding, writing on her website: ’I told [Carter] he couldn’t cry, because then I’d start crying and I would ruin my mascara before my walk.
‘Of course, he did cry, but I think I started crying first.’
Emotional: Paris later revealed that both she and husband Carter started crying before the wedding even began, writing, ‘Of course, he did cry, but I think I started crying first’
The blushing bride added: ‘It was a Cinderella moment and I knew I found my true love. I had a glam refresh after because if I walked the aisle with all that mascara running down my face, it would’ve been beyond.’
For the ceremony itself, Paris modeled an elegant long-sleeved lace dress designed by Oscar de la Renta, complete with a lengthy floral-embellished veil that trailed down along the floor as she walked down the aisle.
Reports claimed that the blushing bride had only decided on the dress late the night before, and that she had also changed the venue in the weeks leading up to the big event.

However, the gown was just the first of four that Paris went on to showcase throughout the evening; after the Oscar de la Renta number, she then changed into a beaded Pamella Roland design, followed by a tulle off-the-shoulder ballgown, before ending the night in a flirty mini dress, complete with a puff skirt.
Kardashian attended the event with Kimora Lee Simmons.
A wedding guest informed DailyMail.com that Kim and Kimora arrived via a secret entrance about 20 minutes before the wedding ceremony began.

Meanwhile, Paris revealed how pop singer Kim Petras sung her own hit Stars Are Blind for guests before the ceremony began, and then I Can’t Help Falling In Love With You as she walked down the aisle. Demi Lovato was on hand at the reception, singing I Will Always Love You as the first dance song
‘They were incredible. It brought so much emotion and love to the event,’ Paris said of Demi.

Mr. and Mrs. Hilton-Reum made their grand entrance into the reception party to cheers from their friends and family – before encouraging everyone to dance.
Paris – who got engaged to Carter in February – was a vision of beauty in her bridal gown which was made of mesh and covered in bright white floral appliques. It also featured a chic mock neckline and long sleeves.

Her bright blonde tresses were styled into a sleek bun, with her side bangs curled and left out to frame her face. Paris’ face was impeccably made up and she sported a classic French manicure.
Paris also revealed how they ended the night ‘dancing and raging’ to a DJ set with their friends and family. It was the best day and night of my life.
‘If I could do it all again I would in a heartbeat,’ she wrote.
‘I was incredibly happy being surrounded by so many loved ones and for everyone to be catching up and letting loose and celebrating.’
Ahead of their wedding, Paris had been proudly showing off her gigantic engagement ring, an emerald-cut diamond ring from Jean Dousset that was rumoured to have set Carter back an eye-watering $2million when he proposed in February.

The happy couple have been romantically involved since December of 2019, although they had known each other for over a decade.
Talking about their decision to get married, Paris said in February: ‘This past year with COVID has accelerated so many things. As someone who traveled constantly, I had a chance to stay home and reevaluate what was important to me. My relationship and the time I spent with Carter was a gift.’
Meanwhile, Carter said: ‘I have gotten the unique opportunity to get to know the real Paris on a daily basis just the two of us during these past 15 months and I couldn’t be more excited and lucky to have her as my future wife and partner.’
Paris wrote about this moment: ‘We made our grand entrance into the reception party, and had our first dance as Mr. and Mrs. Hilton-Reum’
Adding: ‘She shines with her kindness, work ethic, authenticity and her voice in making the world a better place and she will do the same as a future mother and wife.’
It was revealed this month by Page Six that Paris changed her wedding venue just one week before the big day.
It had previously been reported that the ceremony portion of the lavish-three day affair would be taking place at the Good Shepherd Church in Beverly Hills, however an invited guest divulged that plans had now changed.

‘It changed about a week or so ago. It’s changed several times. Originally, they were going to get married in the church, but they switched it about a week or so ago,’ a source told the publication.
In order to ensure maximum privacy, save the dates sent out in October had no disclosed location, and the new RSVPs — which were sent out on Wednesday November 3 — also had no addresses listed reportedly.
‘New email invitations went out [Wednesday] to confirm attendance, but there still aren’t any addresses [listed],’ the source said.

As the whole thing will be filmed for the upcoming Peacock series Paris In Love, the same source remarked ‘they will be filming to death.’
An insider had previously told the publication of the wedding plans: ‘They sent out the save-the-date. They didn’t include the location, but [the reception] is going to be at Barron’s house.’
It was also added that the first invitation ‘came in a blue box. It sort of looked like a Tiffany’s box.’
Paris’ late grandfather Barron’s sprawling Bel-Air mansion is 15,000 sq ft, and was owned by the hotel magnate for 60 years before it was sold to former Google CEO Eric Schmidt in May.
Reum — an entrepreneur — popped the question in February with a 15-20 carat engagement ring estimated to cost nearly $2M, following nearly a year-and-a-half of dating.
