A handful of reality show cameras and production crew may have surrounded them, but Lamar Odom insists his wedding to Khloe Kardashian was real, despite reports that it was a non-binding ceremony.

“It’s crazy how perception works in America when you’re looking at things from the outside,” Odom, 29, told reporters at a press conference at the Lakers media day Wednesday.

Odom, who tied the knot with the 24-year-old reality TV star on Sunday after a one-month courtship, didn’t want to talk about the wedding and appeared annoyed with questions focusing on the ceremony, though he did say that “anybody that was there will tell you that it was a beautiful event and it was real.”

Those who weren’t able to attend will get to see the wedding on a special episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which will air Nov. 8 at 9 p.m. on E!, the network announced.

As for the newlyweds’ honeymoon, the couple will have to postpone their trip. Odom will be joining his teammates at training camp on Wednesday, with the preseason beginning Oct. 7 in a game against the Golden State Warriors.
