    EXCLUSIVE: Get Kim's Wedding Viewing Kit

    When: Oct. 26, 2002

    Where: Riverbend Church in Austin, Texas

    On the List: Family, friends and Nick's 98 Degrees bandmates, who performed a song Nick wrote for Jessica called "My Everything."

    Can't Top This: It was a picture-perfect wedding for 250 of their nearest and dearest, coordinated by event planner to the stars Mindy Weiss. And after pledging their "I dos," the blushing bride and groom invited the rest of the world to join them at the altar.

    Jessica and Nick had achieved decent pop level fame on their own, but allowing MTV to capture their marriage for Newlyweds gave the couple a whole new level of notoriety. He played the straight guy to her lovable ditz, whether she was trying to figure out the origins of Chicken of the Sea or buffalo wings.

    And all was peachy until their love crashed, burned and proceeded to curse so many future reality TV relationships that boasted a camera-hungry couple, including Jon and Kate Gosselin, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown Carmen Electra and Dave Navarro, Shanna Moakler and Travis Baker, and Linda and Hulk Hogan

    But love is blind and bills need to be paid, so Nick gave the cameras another shot this year when he allowed TLC to document his recent island wedding to Vanessa Minnillo.

    Good luck kids, you're gonna need it!
