Kendra Wilkinson tied the knot with Hank Baskett on June 27, 2009 at the Playboy Mansion in Bel Air.

The 6:30 p.m. wedding took place on the sprawling lawn in front of 300 guests. The affair, rumored to have cost $1 million, was planned by Nicole Hirsty of Cobalt Events.

The ceremony site was covered in lavender and white flowers by LA Premier and included 5,000 roses, 1,200 orchids and 2,000 hydrangea blossoms.

Kendra’s brother, Colin, walked her down a white rose petal aisle.

She wore a strapless wedding dress by R. Mine Bridal Couture along with $100,000 of jewelry by Michael Barin.

Her bridesmaids, including Bridget Marquardt and Holly Madison, wore lavender dresses by R. Mine Bridal.

The groom wore a white tux by Sy Devore.

Hugh Hefner looked on from the second row with three of his girlfriends at his side.

The couple recited traditional vows in a non-denominational ceremony officiated by Chris Robinson.

Following the nuptials, a reception was held in a tent in the backyard.

The couple shared their first dance to “I Cross My Heart” by George Strait. Kendra shared a second dance with Hugh Hefner to “As Time Goes By” from “Casablanca.”

Playboy’s in-house caterer prepared a buffet style dinner of lobster, sushi and mini cheeseburgers.

For dessert, a strawberry and chocolate wedding cake by Fantasy Frostings was served with the couple’s mongram.

The newlyweds honeymooned at Jade Mountain Resort in St. Lucia.
