The Yeezus rapper staged a ruse, inviting approximately 50 family members and friends to San Francisco's AT&T Park for what he billed as a surprise party for Kim's 33rd birthday. What guests didn't know was that Kanye was staging an engagement of epic proportions that included a 50-piece orchestra and a jumbotron that read, "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" Oh, and a ginormous ring for the mother of his child.
Photos and video have since surfaced all over the Internet, revealing candid moments and the attendees. But there were some surprise guests — and even more surprising no-shows.
The 'In' Crowd
Jaden Smith: The "Karate Kid" was seen reveling in the moment, alongside Kardashian baby sister and rumored girlfriend Kylie Jenner. In one widely shared video, Smith is actually caught running on the field clutching his head, dancing away to one of Kanye's tracks.
Chad Hurley: Kimye really do have friends in high places. The co-founder of YouTube was among those present and reportedly shot the first footage of the engagement from the dugout. Hurley seems to have edited and uploaded the video using his new app, "MixBit," because he tweeted, "So this happened last night. Congrats Kim & Kanye!"

Lorraine Schwartz: While Kanye is said to have been heavily involved in the design of the rock, the woman behind the 15-carat diamond ring was invited to witness the special moment. Schwartz posted several Instagrams of the event, calling it a "#geniusproposal" and adding the hashtag "#ifthiswastheproposalicantwaitforthewedding."
Another key player in the epic proposal, and an obvious invited guest, was the CEO of the San Francisco Giants. Kris Jenner publicly thanked Baer for the venue via Twitter saying, "Thank you for an amazing night Larry Baer ...GRAND SLAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Other notable guests included Pussycat Dolls founder and friend-to-the-Kardashians Robin Antin; Kim K's BFF Jonathan Cheban; "Girls Gone Wild" creator Joe Francis; designer Rachel Roy; Kris Jenner's cousin CiCi Bussey; the contributing fashion editor for Vogue Italia, Rushka Bergman; and stylist Simone Harouche.
The 'Out' Crowd
Bruce and sons Brody and Brandon Jenner: The Jenner family patriarch was clearly missing in action. Bruce recently announced his separation from wife Kris Jenner after 22 years of marriage, and claimed to have been invited but said he couldn't attend. Brody and Brandon, the newest faces on the "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" series, also missed the event.
Lamar Odom: The former Laker has been making headlines recently for all the wrong reasons, including his reportedly rocky marriage with wife Khloe Kardashian. So was he just not invited? Odom told TMZ he was, but had "something to do."
The Carters: Of the 50 guests invited to witness Kimye's big day, fans could be forgiven for expecting to see Ye's Throne partner, Jay Z, and his wife Beyoncé. They were no-shows, though, as was good pal Rihanna. (Also, the Roc affiliates have yet to publicly congratulate the couple.)
Other guests we're just not sure attended are Kourtney Kardashian's longtime boyfriend Scott Disick or "KUWTK" executive producer and E! host Ryan Seacrest.
