Who: golfer Tiger Woods and Swedish model Elin Nordegren

When: October 5, 2004

Where: The Sandy Lane Resort on St. James, Barbados

The Ceremony: A November 2003 proposal in the sultry climate of a South African game preserve led to a reported $1.5 million dollar sunset wedding on the island of Barbados, where the groom guaranteed an exchange of vows far from the prying eyes of the paparazzi by renting all two hundred rooms of the luxurious Sandy Lane Resort, known as a haven for vacationing celebrities since 1961. Over 120 guests, including sports legends Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley witnessed the hilltop ceremony in a covered pagoda adorned with 10,000 crimson and black roses.

The Dress: The public was afforded only a fleeting glimpse of the bride and groom in their wedding attire. The Swedish model wore a white, sleeveless floor-length gown with a scooped neck, while the groom donned a tan suit.

The Reception: As a performance from Hootie and The Blowfish echoed in the tent erected on The Green Monkey golf course, champagne flowed freely as guests dined on caviar and blackened Scottish salmon, shrimp cocktail, flying fish, macaroni pie, and a four-tiered wedding cake. The festivities were capped off with fireworks that illuminated the sky over the St. James coast.

The Honeymoon: The newly betrothed spent their first night as husband and wife aboard the aptly-christened yacht "Privacy" before spending the first leg of their honeymoon diving in the cobalt waters of the Caribbean.
