1. TOM & KATIE
Their wedding ceremony
After famously debuting their romance in Rome in April 2005, it was only fitting that Cruise, 44, and Holmes, 28, would return to Italy to marry in true fairytale fashion. Their Nov. 18 nuptials, held at a 15th century castle in Bracciano, Italy, lived up to all the hype, with 150 guests (including Will Smith, Brooke Shields and Victoria Beckham), 400 feet of crinoline and tulle (in Holmes's Armani wedding gown), and a dramatic fireworks display to cap things off.
