The countdown to the wedding of the week continues!
Khloe Kardashian and husband-to-be Lamar Odom celebrated their impending Sunday nuptials with family members at a rehearsal dinner Saturday at the Lobster, a beachfront restaurant in Santa Monica.
The evening's attendees including the bride's mom Kris Jenner, stepdad Bruce Jenner, sisters Kim
and Kourtney (along with Kourtney's boyfriend, Scott Disick), brother Robert Jr., and half-sisters Kylie and Kendall.
And given the Kardashians star in two E! reality TV shows – Keeping Up With the Kardashians
and the spin-off Kourtney & Khloé
Take Miami – it should come as no surprise who else
was there: camera crews and producers.
"Everyone was festive and happy, laughing, eating lobster, but there was an air of nervousness and excitement because of the build-up to the wedding," says a source, adding that Khloe and Lamar received many gifts.
"Khloe and Lamar were cute, they even wore matching colors: he wore a purple t-shirt and she wore a purple dress, a nod to the [Los Angeles] Lakers. And Bruce was great, giving Khloe an amazing, touching toast."
Prior to the dinner, there was a wedding rehearsal at the nearby Viceroy Hotel, where Khloe held her bachelorette party last week.
The restaurant wasn't closed down, so some other patrons "felt that their view of the ocean and just the general atmosphere was dominated by the party and the E! cameras," says a source. "But the majority got a kick out of it, and were pretty gleeful just watching the celebration and the whole thing unfold."
