Brody Jenner got married and the Kardashian-Jenners didn’t bother coming


Brody Jenner and Kaitlynn Carter got married over the weekend in Indonesia. Brody and Kaitlynn gave People Magazine the exclusive photos, which you can see here. It’s a lovely shot. Kaitlynn is wearing a simple cream-colored dress with what looks like a silk organza overlay. It has embroidery on the bodice that extends on to the sheer sleeve and the veil looks like maybe it is the same organza as the dress. She looked beautiful and Brody complimented her well in a simple tan suit.

Brody Jenner wed longtime girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter in a stunning ocean-view ceremony Saturday at Nihi Sumba, a resort on Sumba Island, off the coast of Indonesia, PEOPLE can exclusively confirm.

Jenner’s brother Brandon and mom Linda Thompson looked on as the former Hills star exchanged vows with his influencer fiancée.

The ceremony and reception culminated four days of festivities on the breathtaking isle, including horse races on the beach and a white party where the intimate guest list of 50 close friends and family danced the night away.

As you can read, not very many of Brody’s family members were there. His mom, Linda Thomson, and brother Brandon made it but his father Caitlyn and his two younger half-sisters, Kylie and Kendall, were not there. Just for continuity sake, it doesn’t sound like his older sister Cassandra Marino or older brother Burt Jenner were there either but I guess that didn’t bother Brody as much.

Obviously, the missing attendee that stands out the most is Caitlyn. Since she is supposedly thrilled for Brody and Kaitlynn and not only attended Kaitlynn’s bridal shower but plans to throw a big shindig for the couple at a later date, what was so very important she had to miss the wedding? A fundraiser in Austria, apparently:

Well, last night Caitlyn was with friend Sofia Hutchins in Vienna, Austria. The reality star attended the LIFE+ Solidarity Gala on Friday night ahead of Saturday night’s Life Ball at City Hall in Vienna, Austria. The Life Ball, an annual charity event raising funds for HIV & AIDS projects, was celebrating its 25th anniversary at Vienna’s City Hall.

It’s a worthy cause, certainly, but one that likely would have accepted a check in lieu of an appearance, I think. The truth is, Brody and Kaitlynn were probably better off with just the people who did attend. But still, it had to hurt. For what it’s worth, Kaitlynn’s family has been supportive of the couple as has Brody’s mom. In the end, you know who has your back and that’s who you lean on. I wish Brody and Kaitlynn a long and happy life together. And I wish Caitlyn would take a long, hard look at her priorities someday.

    eh indonesia is a sh*thole very far away…

    • Mariposa says:

      Ummm….what?! I am in Indonesia, and I hope you are joking!

      • Runcmc says:

        I think it’s a joke about Caitlyn’s political views. She’s a republican trump supporter, and that sounds like something he’d say (so, she would possibly condone/agree with)

      • me! says:

        nggak… not joking lah
        indonesians don’t respect banci.

    • betsyd says:

      Far away depends on where you start. Far away from New England, but I’ve made the trek to Indonesia twice and plan to do it again once my daughter is older. Beautiful place with vibrant cultures.

  2. Loopy says:

    Caitlyn is probably the one who accepted a fat cheque to attend.

    • LadyT says:

      Yep. She skipped the wedding for a check, not a cause.

    • Bridget says:

      Isn’t that the Life Ball’s thing? They pay some high profile-ish person to attend?

    • Jag says:

      She had said that she couldn’t attend his wedding due to a lucrative moneymaking opportunity, so I agree with you. Perhaps she had already spent the money or would have to pay more had she not attended? She knew when he was getting married, didn’t she? She’s awful.

  3. Elisabeth says:

    what is brody famous for (no sarcasm) besides being Caitlin’s son?

  4. Runcmc says:

    This is pretty crappy. You hit the nail on the head- Caitlin’s priorities are incomprehensible. This is a slightly classed-up version of Thomas Markle…

    Also if Brody’s new wife takes his name she will be Kaitlynn Jenner. Weird.

    • anika says:

      YES! That name would be so weird!!!

    • Peeking in says:

      I was thinking the same thing about the names. Why would Caitlyn choose a name that so closely resembles her son’s long time girlfriend’s name? Weird.

    • still_sarah says:

      Question : how much notice did Caitlyn Jenner or anyone else have for the wedding? If it was a last minute thing, then okay. But if Caitlyn J. had months of notice or even a year, she should have been there.

    • Chinoiserie says:

      Did Bruce change his name to Caitlyn inspired by his son’s girlfriend Kaitlyn? They were together since 2013 and moved together soon after acorrding to the article so it was serious and it was after that Caitlyn made the name change right? It just weird to copy a name like that, even if they were not married yet she was a future family member.

  5. RBC says:

    Let’s see if Kendal and Kylie attend the party Caitlyn throws for their brother’s wedding. Still don’t get how Caitlyn could skip her son’s wedding.

    • Jessica says:

      What I don’t understand is this: kaitlyn has been on the scene since 2013. Bruce transitioned to Caitlin in 2015….. why would you chose the name of your son’s gf?

  6. Tanesha86 says:

    This is pretty sad, Caitlyn should’ve been there for her son. Family should come before a fundraiser no matter how noble the cause

    • minx says:

      Caitlyn was an indifferent parent when the boys were younger, and remains so.

      • still_sarah says:

        I think so. As Bruce, Jenner was not very involved in his children’s lives I heard. Too bad.

    • boredblond says:

      I’m guessing if E had decided this was worth covering and provided big $ and cameras, they all would’ve shown up as one big happy family

  7. lobstah says:

    I love their job titles: former Hills star (him) and an “influencer” – must be nice!

    • Esmom says:

      I laughed at “influencer.” My almost-college age sons and I keep talking about possible majors and careers for them. Funny that becoming an influencer has not (yet) come up, lol!

  8. Chaine says:

    I bet he could have gotten Kendall and Kylie there if he paid them an appearance fee or agree to allow them to film footage for their reality show…

  9. Daisyfly says:

    So his half-sisters didn’t show up to their brother’s wedding?

    They went on that shitshow with Rob and Chyna but not a private wedding for Brody?

    If you wanted to know whether they’d do something for their family if it wasn’t on camera, now you know.

  10. Beth says:

    They’re definitely not a loving family. I thought Kendall was closer to the Jenners than she was to the Kardashians

  11. MousieBrown says:

    Excluding his parent, they may not even have been invited.

    I think it’s a lot to ask people to go that far away for your wedding, especially when you’re not really involved with each other.

    • minx says:

      Supposedly they were invited. And these girls will go to the opening of an envelope, so distance isn’t the issue.

    • CatFoodJunkie says:

      It’s a lot to ask for people without private jets and an abundance of free time.

  12. Lucy says:

    Quite frankly, he’s better off. Congrats to him and Kaitlynn!

  13. kyle says:

    Burt was there with his young son – at least according to his Instagram. And I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that Cassandra (Casey) had a baby a couple of months ago, so that likely explains her absence.

    From Linda Thompson’s IG posts and comments over the years, it seems as though she and Caitlyn’s first wife made an effort to raise their children as siblings and they seem to have a good relationship amongst the four of them. You see them popping up from time to time on Linda’s IG during the holidays and other family events.

    • minx says:

      Yes. Chrystie Jenner and Linda are friends and co-parented all their kids.

    • Reef says:

      Really confirms what a terrible parent Caitlyn was to her non-Kris kids. Sheesh. Kudos to those mothers. That’s not an easy thing to do. Says a lot about them that they made that effort when their ex-wife was a POS.

      • Amelie says:

        I mean it doesn’t seem like Caitlyn did any better with her Kardashian step-kids. I guess she has a relationship with Kylie and Kendall as their dad but all the K step-kids are estranged from her because of her memoir and the stuff she included about Kris. Now that Kris and Caitlyn are divorced, she has nothing to do with them. Like she did with her previous relationships/bio kids.

    • Bridget says:

      Google the Kardashian-Jenner Christmas cards. You can see that they started with blending both families, and then over time there’s an abrupt shift to just Kris’s kids.

  14. SJhere says:

    This entire group of people should all accept that they are all a giant hot mess of goofy idiots. I await the day that none of the Kardashians, Jenners, exs, current partners, kids, maids, lawyers, makeup and hair teams all drop outta sight.
    Seacrest should be taxed and jailed for inflicting these humans on America.
    Ugh! Attention seeking and deeply overpaid, every one of them.

  15. BearcatLawyer says:

    I think there is a far more logical reason why Caitlyn skipped out on the wedding:

    Indonesia has been considering much stricter national anti-LGBTI laws for a few years now. If I were Caitlyn, I would not risk a trip there. If I were Brody and wanted my father in my wedding, I would not have booked the ceremony there.

    • Silent Star says:

      Indonesian anti-LGBTQ laws and attitudes are a good reason for Caitlin not to go. I hadn’t thought of that earlier.

  16. InPurgatory says:

    I must admit I find the whole destination wedding concept OTTin a way if it involves an expectation that all your friends and family devote an entire week for your wedding, burn half their vacation days, put their lives on complete hold and spend a fortune in the process. It’s pretty narcissistic.

    So while some of these don’t apply to Caitlyn……..they do still apply in one degree or another to everyone who didn’t attend so I’m not Judging anyones choice not to attend. The Indonesians attitude to LGBTQ can’t be ignored here.

  17. Cas says:

    wow will she be called Kaitlynn Jenner, I wonder

  18. Yes Doubtful says:

    There is no excuse for Caityln not to attend, but unfortunately he’s probably better off. I don’t think they’ve ever had a good relationship.

  19. Ann says:

    I don’t mean to come across as ageist at all, but Caitlyn Jenner is nearing 70. Don’t you think she’d want to spend more time with her kids? She lamented about missing their childhoods in her book and yet blowing off your son’s wedding for an appearance fee? Bruce was an absentee father to his non-Kardhashian children and now Caitlyn claims she is going to make up for all that. When exactly is that going to happen? The clock is ticking…

    • brutalethyl says:

      Good. Let it tick. Caitlyn Jenner hasn’t done anything more for the world than Bruce Jenner did. I don’t wish death upon anyone, but I won’t miss this one or really any of the Kardashian/Jenner trash. Good riddance, I say.

  20. brooksie says:

    I can imagine why the Jenner kids hold a lot of resentment towards Caitlyn/the Kardashians. Bruce was portrayed as this all-star, loving father on Keeping Up with the Kardashians (until the divorce). It would sting for sure to be one of his other kids.
