Barbra Streisand and James Brolin's Wedding

Who: singer/actress Barbra Streisand and actor James Brolin

When: July 1, 1998

Where: The couple were united in matrimony in an evening ceremony held at the bride's Malibu mansion.

The Ceremony: Exactly two years to the day since their first date, the iconic singer took the arm of her son as she began her descent down a staircase festooned with crimson roses, greenery and ribbons of lace, walking in time to the strains of "The Wedding March" and "The Four Horsemen of The Apocalypse" until she reached her intended, who stood in the living room of her Malibu mansion, transformed for the day by Designs By David into a virtual indoor garden filled with lillies of the valley, gardenias, stephanotis and 4,000 roses. One hundred and five guests, including John Travolta and his wife Kelly Preston and Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson witnessed the fifteen minute, traditional Jewish ceremony.

The Dress: Conjuring up images of Edwardian romance, American designer Donna Karan created a low-cut, crystal encrusted wedding gown paired with a 15-ft. veil, which was attached to a halo of white blossoms that rested lightly upon the bride's upswept hair. To further enhance the look of a bygone era, the bride wore a pearl and diamond choker.

Crowns of white roses interspersed with greenery graced the heads of the two young bridesmaids, who each wore matching pale pink dresses with tulle skirts. The rose theme was continued with blushing pink rose wrist corsages and hoop wreaths composed of pink roses, ivy and ribbon. A hoop wreath was also carried by the groom's young daughter, who acted as ring bearer. Molly Brolin was garbed in a floor-length white dress with a delicate purple flower print. The groom's granddaughter, who served as the flower girl, wore a knee-length. long-sleeved pink dress paired with white stockings and shoes.

The Reception: Pink water lilies and illuminated candles drifted on the surface of a swimming pool reflecting the figures of guests as they made their way to a 2,800 sq. ft. tent, where soft-shell crabs, porcine ravioli and slices of a four-tiered wedding cake embellished with sugar roses was served on 18th century Sevres porcelain plates. Later, the bride's voice echoed on the grounds as the performance-shy singer serenaded her new husband with two love songs.

The Honeymoon: Not straying far from home, the newlyweds decided to make a short excursion to the Channel Islands near Santa Barbara.
