Happy #TBT, y'all!
Ahhhh, the early aughts. A close cousin of the '90s, filled with bootleg jeans, questionable denim, and a whole lotta celebrity weddings. Tons of stars got married in the early 2000s (2006 was an especially popular year), and we're taking a look back at the highlights.
1. Toni Braxton and Keri Lewis
Before she was dating Birdman, Toni Braxton married Keri Lewis in 2001 and looked every part the aughts princess bride.
2. Benjamin Bratt and Talisa Soto
Can't leave Benjamin Bratt off this list! The former boyfriend of Julia Roberts married Talisa Soto in 2002, though there's really no reason to name drop the year. That super aughts skinny scarf says it all.
3. Marc Anthony and Dayanara Torres
Look how happy Marc Anthony is during his 2002 wedding to Miss Universe Dayanara Torres! That said: his satin tie, though.
4. Adam Sandler and Jackie Titone
Could this photo of Adam Sandler on his wedding day be anymore Adam Sandler-y? Answer: no. And could these spaghetti straps be anymore aughts? Answer: also, no.
5. Anne Heche and Coley Laffoon
Look, Anne Heche and her director husband are adorable, but we can all agree that the most aughts thing about this photo is the massive satin curtain lingering in the background?
6. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes
Doesn't get more classic than TomKat's circa 2006 wedding photo! These two got married in an Italian castle, and their entire wedding party was outfitted by Armani. The simple life.
7. Liv Tyler and Royston Langdon
Please note that Liv Tyler matched her pink satin shoes to her husband's tie. Such things were acceptably in 2003, don't question it.
8. Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban
OK, so 2006 kinda made up for the "outfit" Kid Rock chose to wear to his nuptials, because Nicole Kidman looked stunning in a Balenciaga dress during her wedding to Keith Urban. So dreamy.
9. Tori Spelling and Charlie Shanian
Tori Spelling's wedding look is actually pretty timeless (can't go wrong with lace!), but those cap sleeves are 100 percent saying, "Hey! We were made in 2004!"
10. Gavin Rossdale and Gwen Stefani
The year was 2002, a fabulous time when Blake Shelton was barely a glimmer in Gwen Stefani's eye. Also, a time where pink wedding dresses were totally in (though really, have they ever been out?).
11. Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi
Cutest. Aughts. Couple. Ever.
