Ahead of the April 2022 premiere of The Kardashians on Hulu, the Kar-Jenners inadvertently got the best show promotion they could when Kourtney Kardashian visited a wedding chapel in Las Vegas with her fiancé of a few months, Travis Barker.
News broke on April 5, 2022, that the PDA-loving couple swapped vows in the early morning hours of April 4 — following the Blink-182 drummer's performance at the Grammy Awards.
That "practice wedding" may not have been official, but the couple has since tied the knot.
The two swapped vows, for real this time, on Sunday, May 15, in front of Kourtney's grandmother May Jo Campbell, and Travis's father, Randy Barker.
It's rumored that Kourtney and Travis will have a third ceremony in Italy at some point in the future, but their May 15 wedding marks the first time that their union has been legalized.
After their latest ceremony made headlines, Distractify caught up with astrologer Lisa Stardust, who wrote Saturn Return Survival Guide, and who created The Astrology Deck, to discuss what was going on in the stars when Kravis wed.

Following their "practice wedding" on April 4, Kourtney and Travis officially tied the knot in Santa Barbara on Sunday, May 15. A source close to the newlyweds told TMZ that they obtained the necessary legal paperwork, meaning that they are legally married.
The couple reportedly exchanged vows on the steps of the downtown courthouse on Anacapa Street.
Only a few family members were in attendance, including Kourtney's grandmother and Travis's father. According to TMZ, additional witnesses include bodyguards and others to help keep spectators "at bay."
After saying "I do," Kourt and Travis rode away in a black lowrider convertible, which had a sign attached to the back that read "JUST MARRIED." So, yes, Kourtney and Travis are officially husband and wife.
Astrologer Lisa Stardust told Distractify that the pair got married "during Mercury Retrograde, and during the total Lunar eclipse." She also noted that Kourtney and Travis got engaged during another Mercury Retrograde.
"Mercury represents contrasts, so there could be something that goes awry down the road," Lisa added.
Though the Lunar eclipse isn't always an ideal time to walk down the aisle, Lisa said that one aspect of Travis's birth chart meant that their May 15 date was "destined to happen."
"He has a Scorpio sun, and it connects with the North Node of destiny in his chart," she explained. "The Eclipse was on his sun and the North Node of destiny. Basically, something big was destined to happen."
Now, this isn't the only time the pair will wed.
On May 15, People reported that #Kravis will have an official wedding ceremony in Italy sometime in the near future.
"They had to legally get married first ahead of their big Italian wedding, which is happening very soon," a source told People. "All the details are set and the whole family, including all the kids, are very excited."
Lisa had an explanation for the couple's decision to have three weddings.
"Mercury Retrograde has three parts to it, the pre-shadow, the actual retrograde and then the post-retrograde," the astrologer shared. "When you have mercury retrograde, you do things two or three times."
Kourtney and Travis had a "practice wedding" ceremony on April 4, 2022.
Although there was no marriage license involved, Kourt and Travis went to One Love Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas and sealed the deal on April 4 following the drummer's performance at the Grammy Awards on April 3, 2022, TMZ reported.
Travis and Kourtney reportedly walked into the wedding chapel at 1:30 a.m. on Monday, April 4, bringing their own photographer and security with them, TMZ reported. There, they said "I do" — with an Elvis impersonator presiding over the nuptials.
"There was a lot of that — kissing and hugging. They barely came up for air!" chapel owner Marty Frierson told People. "They just seemed totally in love."
Four people attended the ceremony, according to People. It's unclear whether production crew members for Hulu’s The Kardashians were present to document the event.
Kourtney and Travis got engaged in October 2021.
Travis popped the question on Oct. 17, surrounded by a romantic (and elaborate) flower arrangement and candles at the Rosewood Miramar Beach hotel in Montecito, Calif. The location is a place where Kourtney and Travis "have spent a lot of time together," and "is considered to be a very special and sacred place to them," a source told Entertainment Tonight.
"Kourtney and Travis really feel like they've found their perfect partner and match," the source said. "They can't wait for this next step in their journey as a couple and to spend the rest of their lives together."
The duo had been friends — even living in the same Calabasas gated community — for several years before becoming romantically involved. In February 2021, they became "Instagram official" and have since publicly shared their relationship.
