On Saturday, June 27, Kendra Wilkinson and football star Hank Baskett became only the second couple to ever get married on the grounds of the famed Playboy Mansion.

Obviously, Kendra's former boyfriend — and employer — Hugh Hefner was the first to say "I do" at the Holmby Hills, Calif., estate, and given their history it only seemed fitting that Hugh open his palatial home up for the blessed event.

Hugh was accompanied by his three girlfriends: Kristina and Karissa Shannon, and Crystal Harris. In Kendra's lavender-dressed bridesmaid party were the two other Girls Next Door, ex-roommates and fellow ex-girlfriends of Hugh: Holly Madison and Brigitte Marquadt.

"Kendra looked great," one attendee tells OK! "She was all about smiles. Before the wedding ceremony, she was giggling and laughing."

The bride who recently announced that she's expecting her first child, was already beginning to show through her white wedding dress, which was off the shoulder and had a very long train. "It so big and long," says the source. "Kendra had to have a few woman carry it for her."


And of course it was an emotional day for everyone. "Kendra started crying when she was walking up the aisle," the source says. "She saw Hank and everyone. But Hank's mom was crying more."

The 23-year-old blonde bride must have felt a little nervous while at the altar — She messed up while saying her vows to Hank, and had to say them a couple of times.

The ceremony itself took place on the Mansion's front lawn, with everything from the tents to the lights decked out in white.

To get to the reception, guest had to pass through the house and out to the pool, which is the more traditional party spot for the seemingly continuous bashes at the legendary home.
