Kourtney Kardashian was fully prepared to tie the knot with Travis Barker at their Las Vegas chapel ceremony over the weekend, but couldn’t, due to one major issue: they couldn’t find any place open to get a marriage license. While appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wednesday (April 6) night, the 42-year-old Poosh founder said she and Barker, 46, would have been legally married if they could have obtained a license in the early morning hours on Monday in Sin City.
“Kourt, I think you’re the Kardashian of the week this week because you went ahead and got fake married,” host Jimmy Kimmel joked to his guest, who visited with sisters Kim Kardashian, Khloé Kardashian and Kendall Jenner, plus mom Kris Jenner.
“It’s not called ‘fake married!'” Kourtney exclaimed. “There was no possibility to get a marriage license at that hour.”
“Isn’t everything 24/7 there?” Kim, 41, interjected, to which Kourtney said, “That’s what I thought. I’m like, are you guys lying? We asked five times. What do we have to do to make this happen? It was 2 a.m. and they were like, ‘It opens at 8 o’clock.” She added, “We just did it anyway. It’s what’s in the heart.”

The update came on the same day The Kardashians star posted a carousel of photos from the ceremony on Instagram and confirmed that she and Barker did not obtain a license to marry at One Love Wedding Chapel. “Found these in my camera roll,” Kourtney wrote beside the candid shots, which showed the couple in matching leather jackets and sunglasses. “Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, 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),” she continued. “Practice makes perfect.”
The Blink-182 drummer also shared photos on his Instagram from their visit, writing, “What happens in Vegas.”
A source told People on yesterday that “They had a great time in Las Vegas. The wedding was a cute last-minute celebration of their love. It wasn’t planned and they didn’t have a marriage license. It was Travis’ idea and Kourtney was excited. They are planning a small wedding for later this year. This was a fun practice run.”
Kourtney and Barker had specifically requested the Elvis Presley impersonator because it was “very important” for them to have “the Vegas experience.”
“They had a good time,” the source added, noting that it all happened within about 30 minutes. “Elvis performed the ceremony. They showed a lot of love and had a lot of fun.”
