Fifty friends and family members attended the early evening dinner which was taped for broadcast on the bride-to-be's reality show.

But the emotional point of the evening came when Khloe's stepfather, Bruce Jenner, reduced the crowd to tears when he made a toast.

"With his long hair flowing, and with a glass of red wine in his hand, he made everyone cry when he said his one regret was that Khloe's father, the late Robert Kardashian, could not be there to see this," an eyewitness told

"Khloe, her sisters Kim and Kourtney and their mom Kris Jenner were all reduced to tears."

Robert Kardashian was a well-known attorney and famous as part of the O.J. Simpson "Dream Team."  He and Kris divorced in 1989 and she subsequently married Olympic hero Bruce Jenner.
