Kardashian, 43, and Barker, 46, were joined by their friends and loved ones for a personalized dinner to celebrate their love ahead of their nuptials.

"They have a special menu with Italian wine, hand-made trofie al pesto pasta, sea bass and coffee parfaits," the source says of their meal. "The menu is decorated with a heart."

For the dinner, Kardashian wore a sexy red structured bodysuit with a sheer skirt and a matching fur stole by Dolce & Gabbana. Her groom wore a black tweed jacket with classic tailored pants, also by Dolce & Gabbana.

Located on the coast of northern Italy just southeast of the city of Genoa, Portofino is certainly a picture-perfect wedding location. Not only does the castle boast breathtaking views of Portofino bay and the Mediterranean Sea, it's also rich in history.

Castello Brown was a military stronghold dating all the way back to 1425, according to the venue's website. In the eighteenth century, the castle fell under French rule, and Napoleon Bonaparte even guarded the structure with his troops in an effort to ward off British ships passing through.

Ahead of their legal ceremony, Kardashian and Barker had a "practice wedding" after the Grammy Awards in Las Vegas last month. The ceremony took place at around 2 a.m. local time at One Love Wedding Chapel, complete with an Elvis Presley impersonator who officiated the ceremony.

Kardashian and Barker did not obtain a marriage license, and Kourtney clarified a few days later that it wasn't a legal marriage.

"Once upon a time in a land far, far away (Las Vegas) at 2am, after an epic night and a little tequila, a queen and her handsome king ventured out to the only open chapel with an Elvis and got married (with no license)," she captioned a series of PDA-filled photos. "Practice makes perfect."
