  Unplanned and last minute, Kourtney posted photos from the ceremony on her Instagram. With her photos, she wrote: “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.” 

  Whether it is family vacations or huge milestones, the couple seems to have thrived throughout this past year. Take a trip down memory lane of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s relationship that led to their unofficial wedding.
