Paris Hilton is a married woman.
The hotel heiress said ‘I do’ to her entrepreneur beau Carter Reum on Thursday evening in a lavish ceremony held at her late grandfather’s Bel-Air estate, according to E! News.
A source also told the outlet that ‘Paris selected her dress late last night’ and that ‘there is a lot of love and support surrounding both Carter and Paris.’
Paris and Carter, both 40, announced they were engaged in February after more than a year of dating.

Talking about their decision to get married, Paris said in February: ‘This past year with COVID has accelerated so many things. As someone who traveled constantly, I had a chance to stay home and reevaluate what was important to me. My relationship and the time I spent with Carter was a gift.’
Meanwhile, Carter said: ‘I have gotten the unique opportunity to get to know the real Paris on a daily basis just the two of us during these past 15 months and I couldn’t be more excited and lucky to have her as my future wife and partner.’
Adding: ‘She shines with her kindness, work ethic, authenticity and her voice in making the world a better place and she will do the same as a future mother and wife.’

It was revealed this month by Page Six that Paris changed her wedding venue just one week before the big day.
It had previously been reported that the ceremony portion of the lavish-three day affair would be taking place at the Good Shepherd Church in Beverly Hills, however an invited guest divulged that plans had now changed.
‘It changed about a week or so ago. It’s changed several times. Originally, they were going to get married in the church, but they switched it about a week or so ago,’ a source told the publication.
In order to ensure maximum privacy, save the dates sent out in October had no disclosed location, and the new RSVPs — which were sent out on Wednesday November 3 — also had no addresses listed reportedly.

Secret location: The couple were engaged on a private island this February
‘New email invitations went out [Wednesday] to confirm attendance, but there still aren’t any addresses [listed],’ the source said.
As the whole thing will be filmed for the upcoming Peacock series Paris In Love, the same source remarked ‘they will be filming to death.’
An insider had previously told the publication of the wedding plans: ‘They sent out the save-the-date. They didn’t include the location, but [the reception] is going to be at Barron’s house.’
It was also added that the first invitation ‘came in a blue box. It sort of looked like a Tiffany’s box.’
Paris’ late grandfather Barron’s sprawling Bel-Air mansion is 15,000 sq ft, and was owned by the hotel magnate for 60 years before it was sold to former Google CEO Eric Schmidt in May.
It also served as the backdrop for a then 19-year-old Hilton’s 2000 Vanity Fair photoshoot shot by David LaChapelle.

Of planning the nuptials, The Cooking With Paris star previously told Extra: ‘It’s been the most exciting and romantic time in my life — I just can’t wait for the wedding. It’s stressful planning it.’
And during that September chat her mom Kathy Hilton had accidentally disclosed that the lavish three-day affair would include a carnival.
A source had confirmed her brief slip up as they shared ‘There will be three parties — including a carnival-themed bash at Santa Monica Pier,’ and also an ‘out-of-towners dinner.’
Reum — an entrepreneur and venture capitalist — popped the question in February with a 15-20 carat engagement ring estimated to cost nearly $2M, following nearly a year-and-a-half of dating.
According to sources she has an eye-popping $60,000 wedding registry through luxury store Geary’s Beverly Hills.
Barron died aged 91 in 2019 at his Los Angeles home and left almost all of his fortune to a charitable foundation named after his famous hotelier father, but surviving family members which include grandchildren Paris and Nicky will have still got millions.

The Conrad N. Hilton Foundation inherited about 97 percent of Barron Hilton’s estate.
The foundation expected to grow its endowment from $2.9 billion to $6.3 billion, DailyMail.com reported at the time.
Founded in 1944 by Conrad Hilton, the man who founded the Hilton hotel empire, the foundation ‘provide[s] funds to nonprofit organizations working to improve the lives of individuals living in poverty and experiencing disadvantage throughout the world.’
According to its web site, the charity gives to Catholic sisters, disaster relief and recovery, foster youth, homelessness, hospitality workforce development, safe water, and young children affected by HIV and AIDS.
Hilton’s family said he died of natural causes. He transformed Hilton into the industry’s top brand during his 30 years as its chief executive.
The Blackstone Group bought the international chain’s 2,800 hotels – including its famed Waldorf-Astoria – for $26billion in 2007.
‘The Hilton family mourns the loss of a remarkable man,’ said Steven M. Hilton, his son and chairman of the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, said in a statement.

‘He lived a life of great adventure and exceptional accomplishment.’
An avid pilot who served as a Navy photographer during World War II, Hilton didn’t begin working for his father’s company until 1951, after he’d made his own fortune in orange juice products, an oil company and an aircraft-leasing business.
Hilton also founded the Los Angeles Chargers in the AFL and oversaw the AFL-NFL merger.
William Barron Hilton was born in Dallas in 1927 to Conrad N. Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels, and Mary Adelaide Barron.
Hilton challenged his father’s will – arguing the foundation’s shares of Conrad Hilton’s fortune that were being used to help Catholic nuns could leave the company open to a hostile takeover- in a 10-year legal battle that ended in a settlement.
‘It was a very painful decade,’ Hilton told USA Today in 1995.
‘Hilton vs. the nuns was not the best public relations move.’
Hilton’s wife, Marilyn Hawley Hilton, died in 2004.

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.

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.

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

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.’

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.’
