According to her rep, 24 year-old Wilkinson, who is expecting her first child with Baskett, walked down the aisle in front of approximately 500 guests at the Playboy mansion in Los Angeles's exclusive Holmby Hills, on Saturday (June 27).

For the wedding, Wilkinson wore a white dress and more than $100,000 worth of platinum and diamond jewelry by designer Michael Barin. The jewels included a pair of 4.25-carat platinum drop earrings ($47,000), a 2.5-carat platinum pendant ($33,700) and the 4.5-carat bracelet ($21,000).

The 26-year-old groom also wore white, as did the groomsmen, while the bridesmaids were decked out in lavender. The couple exchange vows on the mansion's front lawn, next to the famed wishing well.

According to Us Magazine, the guests who attended the nuptials were former boyfriend and Playboy founder Hugh Hefner and Wilkinson's roommates turned bridesmaids, Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt.

"I could not be more delighted," Hefner said. "This is one of the happiest days in one of the happiest places on Earth."

Hef was rumored to walk her down the aisle, but instead, Wilkinson's brother Colin did the honor.

"Watching Colin walk Kendra down the aisle was really emotional and beautiful," the bride's mom, Patty Wilkinson, told E!. "She looked breathtaking."

"I'm ready to marry the man of my dreams," Wilkinson told Us prior to the ceremony. "He's one in a million. I'm so lucky."
