The occasion, along with a few of the attendees, has been talked about by one of the wedding photographers.

17 years ago, in a magnificent wedding held in a Rome castle, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise exchanged vows. Jennifer Lopez, David and Victoria Beckham, Will and Jada Pinkett-Smith, and other celebrities attended the event, which had a price tag of over $3 million.

Photographer Robert Evans talked recently about what it was like to be a part of an occasion this unforgettable.

In an interview , Evans discussed his experience meeting Tom Cruise. “When I met him for the first time, he was very excited to meet me,” he said. “It was around the time he was kinda getting the bad press for the couch-jumping thing. But he was super-nice. He was like: ‘I’m so happy to meet you! When I saw your book, I was like: That’s my guy! That’s my guy!’ He was excited about it. I’m meeting Tom Cruise for the first time, this is within the first minute of us meeting, and I was like … ‘Thank you?’ I’m not great with compliments.”

Evans shared he covered two days of events before the actual wedding, and that there were around 150 people invited. When discussing the couple itself, he said, “It seemed very real and natural to me. They just seemed like they were having a great time and they were in love. Obviously I’m not thinking about that [while I’m working], but you are observing and you see it. But then the pictures reflect it. I guess they’re actors; they could have been faking it. But I just go there and do my job and shoot what I see.”
