Wedding photos of the famous

Wedding photos of the famous - Just like the rest of us, celebrities worry about the details of their wedding day. But unlike the average bride and groom, cost usually isn't an issue for A-listers. From intimate private ceremonies to lavish receptions marred by helicopter flyovers, here's a look at the memories made and marriages launched -- for better or worse -- when these 25 famous couples tied the knot.
Michelle & Barack Obama Wedding date: Oct. 3, 1992 The Obama wedding was a study in contrasts. The bride wore white silk, while some guests dressed in traditional African garb. The reception was at the South Shore Cultural Center, at one time a country club that excluded blacks and Jews. And the traditional Christian ceremony was officiated by a pastor who was later lambasted by the religious right: the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
George W. & Laura Bush Wedding date: Nov. 5, 1977 While many couples supersize every detail of their nuptials, the future president and first lady kept things small. The 75 guests who attended the Bush wedding received handprinted invitations, and the couple didn't fret one bit about coordinating the attire of the bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls or ring bearers. There weren't any.
Jackie & John F. Kennedy Wedding date: Sept. 12, 1953 Extravagance marked the wedding of the senator and the debutante in Newport, R.I. The bouffant skirt of Jackie's bridal gown was embellished with more than 50 yards of flounces. The wedding cake stood four feet high. And the reception at Hammersmith Farm, the 300-acre oceanfront estate owned by the bride's stepfather, had a guest list of 1,200.
Elvis & Priscilla Presley Wedding date: May 1, 1967 Although he was nicknamed the King, Elvis failed to give his bride the royal treatment on their wedding day. The small ceremony in a second-floor suite at the Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas lasted less than 10 minutes and was immediately followed by a press conference. Many of the 100 guests who attended the breakfast reception were members of the press.
Prince Charles & Lady Diana Wedding date: July 29, 1981 Talk about wedding jitters. Prince Charles and Lady Diana stumbled over their marriage vows before a crowd of 3,500 in St. Paul's Cathedral. Outside, another 600,000 lined the streets of London to catch a glimpse of the couple. But that was nothing compared to the worldwide audience viewing the wedding: an estimated 750 million.
Catherine Zeta-Jones & Michael Douglas Wedding date: November 18, 2000 While New York's Plaza Hotel has seen its share of celebrity weddings, few have required the tight security of the Zeta-Jones-Douglas nuptials. Privacy wasn't the issue -- money was. The couple had promised an exclusive to OK! magazine for a cool 1 million pounds. To protect their assets, the couple insisted guests show a special hologrammed invitation to gain entry, and private photographs were forbidden.
Liza Minnelli & David Gest Wedding date: March 16, 2002 The best man was Michael Jackson, the maid of honor Liz Taylor, and Tony Bennett -- backed by a 60-piece orchestra -- serenaded the newlyweds in an extravaganza that Forbes ranked as the most expensive celebrity wedding at $3.5 million. Proof that money can't buy you love: The couple divorced the following year.
Chelsea Clinton & Marc Mezvinsky Wedding date: July 31, 2010 The tiny Hudson Valley village of Rhinebeck, N.Y. (pop. 2,800) swelled with the influx of guests, reporters and gawkers -- and was designated a no-fly zone -- for the summer nuptials of Bill and Hillary's only child. The interfaith wedding included a rabbi, a minister and elements from both traditions. The bride wore Vera Wang, the groom wore a yarmulke and prayer shawl, and the wedding cake was gluten-free.
Wayne Rooney & Coleen McLoughlin Wedding date: June 12, 2008 Picture the Italian Riviera. A ceremony in a room strewn with white rose petals in a 17th-century palace. A reception in a former medieval abbey overlooking the sea. Boxes filled with butterflies to be released by guests. When the Manchester United soccer star married his childhood sweetheart, it was a fairy-tale moment -- and a far cry from his more pedestrian proposal at a BP gas station.
Vanisha Mittal & Amit Bhatia Wedding date: June 22, 2004 There's extravagance -- and then there's the wedding of heiress Mittal and banker Bhatia. Six days. A thousand guests. A reported $1.5 million spent on wine alone. Fireworks over the Eiffel Tower. The Palace of Versailles just one of several breathtaking backdrops. All paid for by the bride's father, billionaire steel tycoon Lakshmi Mittal. With a price tag somewhere between $60 million and $78 million, you can't touch this.
Rupert Murdoch & Wendi Deng Wedding date: June 25, 1999 Many of the 82 guests boarding The Morning Glory thought they were simply attending a party for Murdoch and his girlfriend. Instead, they were privy to a wedding ceremony in New York Harbor on the private yacht hired for the occasion. The media mogul made the TV executive wife No. 3, just 17 days after finalizing his divorce from wife No. 2.
Nicole Kidman & Keith Urban Wedding date: June 25, 2006 Aussies Nicole and Keith opted for a restrained traditional candlelight church ceremony when they tied the knot in Sydney. The bride arrived in a white vintage Rolls-Royce, attended by her sister as maid of honor and her daughter as flower girl. But the couple cut loose at the passion-themed black-tie reception where they were joined by fellow Aussies Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Rupert Murdoch.
Tiger Woods & Elin Nordegren Wedding date: Oct. 5, 2004 When Tiger married Elin at the posh Sandy Lane Resort in Barbados, he not only rented out the entire hotel to ensure their privacy but also booked the Caribbean island's only helicopter company to prevent media flyovers. The sunset wedding ceremony took place in a white pagoda, with Michael Jordan, Bill Gates and Oprah among the approximately 150 guests.
Elton John & David Furnish Wedding date: December 21, 2005 On the first day same-sex unions were legal in England and Wales, 700 gay couples were joined in civil partnership. But only one pair had a reception for 700 guests that included Ringo Starr, Victoria Beckham, Donatella Versace and Claudia Schiffer. The stars came out for the union of Sir Elton and his longtime partner to celebrate beneath two huge white tents on the grounds of the couple's Old Windsor mansion.
Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston Wedding date: July 29, 2000 They had candles made of brown sugar imported from Thailand, and matching blond highlights for the bride and groom. Brad and Jen's wedding at a Malibu mansion was heartbreakingly romantic, yet the couple called it quits five years later
Donald & Melania Trump Wedding date: Jan. 22, 2005 Some weddings are memorable due to venue, guests or expense. In the case of the Trump nuptials, the dress took on a life of its own. Worn by Melania on the cover of the February 2005 issue of Vogue, the 50-pound strapless Dior gown had 1,500 crystal rhinestones and pearls, nearly 300 feet of material, a 16-foot train, and was so wide the bride had to sit on a bench during the wedding supper.
Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries Wedding date: Aug. 20, 2011 Filmed for the two-part E! special, "Kim's Fairytale Wedding", the union of the NBA player and the reality star included three custom-made Vera Wang gowns and a mandated dress code: Guests had to wear black or white to match the themed reception. A catered dinner and a multi-tiered chocolate-vanilla swirl cake couldn't take away the bad taste of a marriage that lasted only 72 days.
Andre Agassi & Brooke Shields Wedding date: April 19, 1997 Actress Brooke Shields married her tennis player heartthrob in a candlelit chapel in Monterey, Calif. Yet problems put a damper on their relationship. Just 10 days shy of their second anniversary, he filed for divorce.
Larry King & Shawn Southwick Wedding date: Sept. 5, 1997 Two days before his wedding to Southwick, King ended up in the hospital with chest pains. Facing a scheduled angioplasty, he nevertheless married her in his UCLA Medical Center hospital room at dawn wearing a hospital gown. After his release, the couple restated their vows in a November ceremony in a Beverly Hills garden. The Mormon-Jewish wedding included 60 guests, but this time around the bride wore the gown.
Tony Romo & Candice Crawford Wedding date: May 28, 2011 When the Dallas Cowboys quarterback married the younger sister of "Gossip Girl" star Chace Crawford, celebrity wedding planner Todd Fiscus knew there'd be plenty of football players to feed. Short ribs, pizza and other "man food" satisfied former player Troy Aikman and team owner Jerry Jones.
Tom Brady & Gisele B√ľndchen Wedding date: Feb. 26, 2009 The New England Patriots quarterback and his supermodel bride knew exactly what they wanted in a wedding: a simple day meant for them rather than hundreds of guests. Married privately at a Catholic church in Santa Monica, Calif., the couple invited only their parents and Brady's 18-month-old son from a previous relationship
Nick Swisher & JoAnna Garcia Wedding date: Dec. 11, 2010 TV actress JoAnna Garcia married Yankees outfielder Nick Swisher in a romantic evening ceremony at the Breakers Hotel and Resort in Palm Beach, Fla. The wedding party included Reba McEntire, Jamie-Lynn Sigler and Lance Bass, but all eyes were on the stunning couple -- she in a Monique Lhuillier gown, he in a Burberry London tux.
Carmelo Anthony & LaLa Vazquez Wedding date: July 10, 2010 Red -- the groom's favorite color -- dominated the nuptials of the NBA star and the former MTV VJ, from the hundreds of thousands of imported red roses and hydrangeas decorating the NYC venue to the red patent-leather canopy bed in the party space. Even the five-tier cake was red velvet, covered in red fondant, red sugar flowers, and highlighted with an edible 22-karat gold monogram
Roger Federer & Miroslava Vavrinec Wedding date: April 11, 2009 Federer married his public relations manager -- a former WTA player -- shortly after announcing the couple was expecting their first child. So her Oscar de la Renta empire dress did double duty, stylishly downplaying her five-month baby bump while matching the elegance of his three-piece Tom Ford suit.
Madonna & Guy Ritchie Wedding date: Dec. 22, 2000 On a grand staircase in the great hall of a 19th-century castle in the Scottish Highlands, Madonna made her dramatic entrance wearing an ivory silk gown, diamond tiara and 37-carat diamond cross custom-designed by this company. Guy's attire included a jacket and a kilt featuring his ancestral Mackintosh clan tartan. Staying true to the dictates of custom, underneath he went commando.
