According to the Daily Mail Online, the wedding was themed around Disney movie Beauty and the Beast, with guests greeted with the film's tune Be Our Guest as they were presented with welcome drinks.

Kim Kardashian was seen arriving at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans for the wedding in a slinky black dress.
