Paris Hilton finally got her very own ‘happily ever after’ love story that she had always dreamed of when she married Carter Reum in a star-studded affair in Los Angeles on Thursday.
As part of their lavish three-day celebration, the bride and groom loosened by renting out the famous Santa Monica Pier for a night of games, rides, and music on Friday.
The bride’s mother Kathy Hilton and sister Nicky Rothschild were among the star-studded family and friends who were spotted arriving for round two on the pier, which sits on the beach above the Pacific Ocean in the Santa Monica.

Paris and Carter’s rave-inspired outdoor celebration on Friday night was a great contrast to their elegant, polished wedding ceremony on Thursday.
The couple tied the knot at Paris’ late grandfather Barron Hilton’s sprawling Bel-Air estate.
She shared an intimate look at the ceremony and reception, which served as just the first events in the couple’s multi-day wedding celebrations, which will continue into the weekend.
She modeled four different wedding gowns while celebrating with a host of A-list guests, including Kim Kardashian, Nicole Richie, Emma Roberts, and Ashley Benson.

Kathy and Nicky were clearly emotional throughout the ceremony and into the reception, while Paris’ father Rick walked her down the aisle.
For the ceremony itself, Paris modeled an elegant long-sleeved lace dress designed by Oscar de la Renta, complete with a lengthy floral-embellished veil that trailed down along the floor as she walked down the aisle.
After the Oscar de la Renta number, she then changed into a beaded Pamella Roland design, followed by a tulle off-the-shoulder ballgown, before ending the night in a flirty mini dress, complete with a puff skirt.

‘They were incredible. It brought so much emotion and love to the event,’ Paris said of Demi and Kim.
Paris also revealed how they ended the night ‘dancing and raging’ to a DJ set with their friends and family. It was the best day and night of my life.

‘I was incredibly happy being surrounded by so many loved ones and for everyone to be catching up and letting loose and celebrating.’
Ahead of their wedding, Paris had been proudly showing off her gigantic engagement ring, an emerald-cut diamond ring from Jean Dousset that was rumoured to have set Carter back an eye-watering $2million when he proposed in February.
The happy couple have been romantically involved since December of 2019, although they had known each other for over a decade.

Her infamous sex tape, bitter break-ups, fleeting celeb flings and FOUR engagements: A look back at Paris Hilton’s wild love history
She may have finally found her prince charming in entrepreneur Carter Reum, but hopeless romantic Paris Hilton has had many false-starts on her road to wedded bliss. From a sex tape scandal, bitter break-ups, fleeting celebrity romances and a total of FOUR engagements, DailyMail.com takes a look back at the very extensive relationship history of the 40-year-old hotel heiress…
Chris Zylka – 2017-2018
Paris’s most recent proposal before finding love with Carter was with HBO actor Chris Zylka. The pair began dating in 2017, and he proposed just a year later on a Aspen, Colorado ski trip in January 2018. At the time Paris said of their romance: ‘My best friend & soulmate. Perfect for me in every way.’ They would break up a few months later.

Thomas Gross – 2016
The Simple Life star and businessman Thomas Gross – who is worth over $200million – dated for a year before they split up in April 2016. The pair met at the Cannes Film Festival in 2015, and were said to have immediately hit it off. She named him her ‘soulmate’ in an Instagram caption at the time and even took him as her date to sister Nicky Hilton’s wedding, but it wasn’t to be.
River Viiperi – 2012 – 2014
This Spanish model River Viiperi and Paris dated for two years – and the pair were often seen packing on the PDA while out partying. But the hotel heiress had moved on in 2014, and confirmed their breakup by kissing a mystery man on the beach in Malibu.

Afrojack – 2012
Paris was linked to Afrojack in 2012. Her reps denied reports that she had been dumped by the DJ, instead insisting that they were ‘best friends’ and ‘love and support each other very much.’
Cy Waits – 2010-2011
The reality star dated nightclub organizer Cy Waits for almost a year before they split in June 2011. Things went downhill for the couple when they were arrested in Las Vegas, with Cy getting busted for driving under the influence. He ended up losing his job as head of nightclub operations for Wynn and Encore in Vegas.

There was no love lost between Paris and The Hills star Doug Reinhardt. After a messy split, she told UsWeekly: ‘I am, like, so past that – I don’t even care! I don’t even remember that time in my life. I am over it! I just realized that I’m better off without him. So I ended it because I deserve something much better! He wasn’t right for me and I will eventually find somebody who loves me for who I am.’
Benji Madden – 2008
Before he was married to Cameron Diaz, Paris Hilton and Benji Madden dated for nine months. However, it wasn’t to be as she split from the Good Charlotte guitarist in November 2008. ‘She is saddened by the breakup but they’re just too different and they wanted different things in life,’ a source said at the time. ‘He was loyal and sweet but it was time to take a break.’

Paris Latsis – 2004-2005
Paris almost married her namesake Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis, a Greek socialite and shipping heir. They began dating in December 2004 and were engaged just eight months later. But the couple had called things off by September next year. She had famously complained that her 24 carat diamond – reportedly worth $4.7 million – was too heavy on her finger.

Nick Carter – 2004
The socialite and Backstreet Boys singer Nick were an item for seven months before eventually splitting in July 2004. He would later say some unkind things about Paris in autobiography, writing: ‘Paris was the worst person in the world for me to hook up with. [She] fed my worst impulses as far as partying.’ Paris would respond saying: ‘I don’t believe I was a negative influence on Nick…. I’m glad he got help for his problems and wish him all the best.’
Deryck Whibley – 2003
Sum 41 frontman Deryck Whibley and Paris Hilton were linked for a few months in 2003. Although they were spotted kissing on the party circuit in Los Angeles at the time, things between the pair fizzled out quickly.

Rick Salomon – 2001
Arguably one of her most famous exes, Paris and Rick’s relationship hit the headlines when the poker player leaked a sex tape of the two in 2004 years after they’d split. Paris later said she felt ‘so betrayed’ and recently claimed that the whole experience left her with PTSD. ‘It was my first real relationship. Eighteen. I was so in love with him and I wanted to make him happy,’ she said in her recent doc This Is Paris. ‘And I just remember him pulling out the camera. And he was kind of pressuring me into it. It was like being electronically raped.’
Edward Furlong – 2000
Paris confirmed her romance with the Terminator 2: Judgment Day star after rumors were swirling about an engagement and wedding. ‘No, we’re not married, but he is my boyfriend. We’ve been going steady together for about a month,’ she informed the New York Post in September 2000.

So, why IS Carter Reum such a catch? Meet the man who hopeless romantic Paris Hilton has FINALLY settled down with…
He has been credited as the man who has finally tamed the ultimate 2000s party icon Paris Hilton. So, why is Carter Reum such a catch? DailyMail.com takes a look into the life of the entrepreneur and venture capitalist that has stolen the heart of a hotel heiress…
He comes from a wealthy family, just like Paris
Carter’s father, the late tycoon W. Robert ‘Bob’ Reum, was the chairman, CEO and president of Chicago-based industrial firm Amsted Industries. The company is currently valued at $4billion, and Bob is said to have left behind $7million when he died in 2017 at the age of 74 and is also said to have had a significant property portfolio. Meanwhile, his sister Halle is married to Oliver Hammond, a scion of the extremely wealthy Annenberg family.
He’s an Ivy League graduate
Ivy League schools are considered to be the best in the country – and Carter received a B.A. in both Economics and Business/Managerial Economics from Columbia University in 2003, setting him on his road to success. His older brother Courtney and sister Halle also attended the same school.

He’s a well-respected entrepreneur
Carter’s net worth is estimated to be between $35million-$40 million, and while that is no match for Paris Hilton’s estimated $300million fortune – he has a promising career ahead. For the last four years in a row, he’s been recognized as one of Goldman Sachs’ Builders + Innovators Top 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneur. He and his brother Courtney Reum co-founded their investment company M13, named after the brightest star constellation, after selling their spirits company VEEV in 2016. M13 has invested in over 125 companies including names like Lyft, Pinterest, SpaceX, and more.
He’s a private person without any relationship baggage
Unlike Paris, Carter is certainly not known to be a player in the celebrity dating pool. In fact, little is known about his relationship history leading up to meeting the heiress. He has never been married and does not appear to carry any other significant relationship baggage. When the duo were first linked, Carter is said to have shut down his personal Instagram account to protect his privacy.

He’s media savvy and has appeared on reality TV in the past
While Carter may be a private person, he’s also a media-savvy commentator who knows how to handle his public image. He has appeared on the business reality competition show Hatched with his brother Courtney. In 2018, Carter and Courtney released a self-help book for aspiring and seasoned entrepreneurs titled Shortcut Your Startup.
He’s accepting of his partner’s ‘imperfections’
When asked about any of Paris’s annoying habits, Carter said rather diplomatically that her ‘creative mind’ doesn’t always make for a clean or organized house. ‘Yeah, I’m not the most organized person in the world,’ Paris agreed. But Carter reasoned: ‘Yeah, I don’t think we’re gonna change that. I think we’re just gonna have to accept that. If that’s the only reason you’re not perfect, could be way worse.’
