The couple's nuptials - which took place on Saturday (20.08.11) in a ceremony in Montecito, California - are said to have been "awkward" because of TV cameras filming for a two-night special entitled 'Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event'.
A friend told Us Weekly the groom's family "mostly looked appalled by the entire thing".
The guest added: "Everybody felt awkward, like it was all for the cameras and more like a TV show than a wedding."
But another insider said: "This is our version of the Royal Wedding!"
There were also happier moments for the basketball player's brood when they "cheered when Kim and Kris were pronounced husband and wife."
The 30-year-old reality TV star wore an ivory Vera Wang gown at the ceremony, which lasted half and hour, while Kris donned an Ermenegildo Zegna tuxedo with a white jacket and tie.
The newlyweds jetted off to Capri in Italy on Monday (22.08.11) for a short honeymoon.
