The wedding planning continues as Paris and her mom check out a potential venue for the ceremony. In the episode, which began streaming on Nov. 25, 2021, according to Peacock, Paris picks up her mom, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kathy Hilton, and they head to a church with a family connection. 

They pull up to a nearby church that’s been the location of multiple Hilton family funerals and one star-studded wedding with a Marilyn Monroe connection. Paris parks her pink, personalized Bentley and they attempt to enter the church. Alas, the doors are locked. 

So Kathy takes a few snapshots of Paris twirling in a white dress on the church steps to send to Carter. Then the two leave, disappointed they didn’t get to speak with anyone about it being the setting for yet another Hilton wedding. 

Paris Hilton tells her mom she doesn’t want a church wedding

Despite visiting the church with her mom Paris doesn’t want to get married there. She has only sad memories of the church, specifically her grandparents’ funerals. But she doesn’t want to hurt her mom’s feelings. 

So Paris calls her younger sister, Nicky Hilton Rothschild, to talk it over. Nicky advises the former Simple Life star that she has to take control of the planning process to make her dream wedding happen. If she doesn’t want the ceremony in a church she should make that clear to her mom. 

Following the pep talk from Nicky, Paris gets on the phone with her mom. She tells her she’d rather not get married in the church they visited. Admittedly a little disappointed her longtime dream won’t come true, Kathy reluctantly accepts the decision.

When the subject of wedding venues comes up Paris always goes back to Brooklawn. Once the home of her grandparents, the Bel-Air, Calif. estate holds many fond memories. She remembers spending holidays there and having a goat in the backyard. 

However, there’s a problem. The Hilton family sold the 15,000-square foot Brooklawn Estate in May 2021, according to Los Angeles Times. Luckily, Paris knows the new owners. She asked if she could get married there and they agreed. 

Later, Paris reminisced on happy times while giving Carter a tour of the grounds. Then a tearful Kathy showed up. She explained the last time she’d been there she’d said goodbye to Barron Hilton. 

At this point in the series, Paris has a dress and a date (she and Carter previously decided on Nov. 11, 2021.).Watch Paris in Love Season 1 on Peacock with new episodes dropping every Thursday.
