The chapel where Karl and Jasmine wed overlooks the Sea of Cortez, and the bride reportedly requested fireworks for the occasion.

Following the reception, Karl and Jasmine’s festivities will continue on Sunday when guests will attend a Studio 54-themed disco party. 

While the couple’s costumes remain a secret, the pair are said to have splashed out on the shindig, even hiring a bongo drum player to arrive on horseback just as Jade Jagger did in 1977. 

Event bump-in: Six rows of six white chairs were also lined up outside of the chapel at the One&Only Palmilla resort ahead of the 4.30pm wedding rehearsal on Friday

All three children attended Karl and Jasmine’s wedding on Saturday.
