More than two years ago, in 2016, Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter became engaged.
Over the weekend, these two lovebirds finally tied the knot.
But the Kardashian-Jenner clan was decidedly absent.
Congratulations are in order for Brody Jenner and for his new wife, Kaitlynn Carter!
The two tied the knot in Nihi, Sumba Island, which is a luxury island resort that’s about 250 miles east of Bali, Indonesia.
The ceremony took place on Saturday, June 2.
No one really expected the Kardashians themselves to show up.
Awkwardly, Brody’s sisters, Kylie and Kendall, weren’t there.
Most significantly, Caitlyn Jenner did not attend her own son’s wedding.
The absence of Kylie and Kendall is not really a surprise … because, as we noted last week, they didn’t even RSVP.
Brody admitted as much when speaking to People, saying: “My two little sisters, we never even heard from them.”
Of course, that might be because he’s the sort of person who doesn’t mind being frank with news outlets about family drama.
“They never even RSVP’d I don’t think.”
That’s not shocking — after all, Brody didn’t even know that Kylie was pregnant.
“We sent them an invite but we just never heard anything back.”
He sounded resigned about it.
“Well, they’ll be missed.”
But he really would have liked to see them.
“I would have loved to have had them there.”
Brody’s father, Caitlyn Jenner, was also not in attendance.
Though we discussed rumors that it was Cait’s girlfriend who kept her from the nuptials, Brody had previously said that Cait couldn’t come because of a prior “business opportunity.”
As it turns out, Cait was in Vienne, Austria on Friday night to attend the LIFE+ Solidarity Gala. And yes, gal pal Sophia Hutchins was with her.
On Saturday, the day of the wedding, Cait and Sophia were at the Life Ball, held in Vienne’s City Hall.
It was the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the annual charity event, which raises funds for HIV and AIDS projects.
You know, normally we’d take a harsh tone towards a parent missing their own child’s wedding.
After all, Caitlyn is rich and can afford to miss opportunities. And it’s not as though she disapproves of the union or of Kaitlynn.
But apparently Cait had been locked into these plans for months.
This is why you don’t schedule your wedding at the last minute.
And you know what else?
If a close member of your family is one of the most famous members of the LGBT+ community on the entire planet … maybe you shouldn’t schedule your wedding for the first weekend of Pride Month.
It’s not really a surprise that Cait had plans, now is it?
We will say that Kendall and Kylie don’t have an excuse like Cait’s.
They’re Brody’s siblings, they’re also super rich. And they didn’t even RSVP.
(Don’t say that Kylie had to be with her baby — Stormi has a father and a grandmother and a bunch of aunts and also nannies)
But, as we implied earlier, we cannot help but wonder if Brody’s penchant for speaking to the media about his family and family drama — without consulting anyone — played a role in that.
Things haven’t always been rosy for this family. Maybe Brody’s half-sisters aren’t ready to move on.
