Throwback Thursday: Nick and Jessica's Wedding Edition

Jul 3 2014 - 11:40am

Before we gear up for Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson's wedding [1] this weekend, how about we go back, way back, to a much simpler time: 2002, to be exact. On October 26 of that year, Jessica tied the knot with her longtime love, 98 Degrees frontman Nick Lachey [2], in a traditional church ceremony in Austin, TX. Lucky for us, we were treated to special footage of the entire wedding [3] on an episode of their MTV reality show, Newlyweds, as well as on a DVD that was part of Jessica's 2004 rerelease of her album In This Skin. It goes without saying that Nick and Jessica's lavish wedding was a huge part of our collective consciousness as teenagers in the 2000s [4]; so even though they divorced four years later — and have both moved on and started families [5] — there's no reason we can't indulge ourselves in a little nostalgia and watch one of the most memorable celebrity couples of our time tying the knot. Happy Throwback Thursday!
