With her family name tied to football, it was only fitting Brittny Gastineau made the big catch at Kim Kardashian’s wedding.
The estranged daughter of former NFL star Mark Gastineau grabbed Kim’s bouquet, which is traditionally a sign as to who will be the next bride.
The childhood friend of Kim’s told Entertainment Tonight: “I had a little talk with her when she was going to throw the bouquet. I said, ‘Listen, you and I have been best friends the longest. I’d better catch this bouquet.’ And she looks at me and she winks at me.”
Many of the guests guessed it was fixed that Brittny would catch the bouquet, and playfully jeered her triumph.
Brittny — who was rumored to be dating Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps last year — observed Kim had caught her sister Khloe’s bouquet at her wedding to Lamar Odom last year, adding: “When a Kardashian throws a bouquet, it’s lucky.”
Brittny also revealed some details from the lavish nuptials, which was attended by 440 guests and saw Kim wear three different Vera Wang dresses and jewelry worth a reported $6 million.
“My favorite moment was when Bruce was walking her down the aisle and I just looked at her and I knew that this is finally here, this day that you’ve always wanted, and you met a great guy.
“Who would ever think that she would meet a guy named Kris with a K? That’s when you know it’s meant to be.”
As we previously reported, Hollywood was out in full force for the affair. Eva Longoria, Mario Lopez, Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough, George Lopez, Sugar Ray Leonard, Lindsay Lohan with mom Dina, and Ciara were all there, dressed in black or white, per Kim’s instructions.
The wedding and reception were taped for a two-part E! special airing in October; Keeping Up With the Kardashians airs Sundays at 10/9c on E!
The couple is currently enjoying a quickie honeymoon in Capri, as Kim is due to present at MTV’s Video Music Awards back in Los Angeles on Sunday.
