Nicky's Vegas Surprise!

Nicky's Vegas Surprise!
"They're always so happy together," Hilton pal Jessica Meisels says of the newlyweds. "They just have chemistry."
Even by Las Vegas standards, it was clear that Aug. 13-15 was no ordinary weekend of club-hop-till-you-drop revelry. From a fully clothed Tara Reid leaping into the Palms casino pool to a stripper at a local club attempting to give Paris Hilton a lap dance (she demurred), Hollywood's reigning party posse – including Paris, her sister Nicky, pals Reid, Nicole Richie, Kimberly Stewart and Bijou Phillips, along with power couple Lindsay Lohan and Wilmer Valderrama – took Sin City by storm. And that was before the weekend's big capper: At 2:30 a.m. on Aug. 15, Nicky Hilton wed New York City money manager Todd Meister in an hour-long ceremony at the Vegas Wedding Chapel. "It was a beautiful, small wedding with an amazing energy," says pal Jeff Beacher, a Hard Rock Hotel entertainer who served as best man. "The two of them are very much in love."

Nearly as big a surprise as the wedding itself was the Hilton beneath the veil: not the publicity-basking Paris, 23, but Nicky, 20, who has long preferred to leave the limelight to her sister. Also turning heads is the fact that until their nuptials, Nicky, a handbag designer who will debut her new sportswear collection on Aug. 30, had never publicly mentioned Meister as her boyfriend.
