An inspired idea. The first photo from Kourtney Kardashian‘s wedding to Travis Barker in Italy on Sunday, May 22, showed off the massive image of the Virgin Mary on her veil — an idea straight from the groom’s head.
The Poosh founder, 43, worked with Dolce & Gabbana for all of her wedding weekend looks, including her bridal attire. “Designing my dresses with Domenico [Dolce] and
Stefano [Gabbana] has been a dream come true in every way,” Kardashian told Vogue in an interview published hours after she said “I do.”
Her custom Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda minidress was made of satin and lace and inspired by vintage lingerie. The tiny dress was paired with full-length, sheer white gloves and lace pumps, allowing the massive veil to be the focal point of her wedding look.

The long, sheer fabric featured a large image of the Virgin Mary embroidered in the center, which was based on one of Barker’s skull
tattoos, Vogue reports.
The headdress was hand embroidered and incorporated Mediterranean flowers as well as some simple text: “Family, Loyalty, Respect.”
The body art is on the top of the drummer’s head, and he got the ink when he was a teenager. “Well I got the Virgin Mary tattooed on my foreman when I was 18, 19, and I was brought up Catholic,” he told Vice in 2015. “I definitely pray; I believe in God.
I definitely think I was blessed, and I’m here for a reason after being the only survivor of a plane crash. So I’m not at church every day and I’m not pushing religion on people. But I believe in God and I pray and my kids pray.”
