Memories Of Jennifer Aniston's First Wedding Will Give You Major Early '00s Feels — PHOTO
It's a big day for fans of Jennifer Aniston, Justin Theroux, weddings, and love. According to reports, Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux married in a secret wedding. The beyond adorable couple have been engaged for just shy of three years now, so if they did indeed finally said "I do," then it is worth freaking out over. (Bustle has reached out to Aniston and Theroux's reps, but has not yet heard back.) The pictures from Theroux and Aniston's big day are starting to trickle in and they are just as stylish as you would expect any event hosted by style icon Aniston would be. I have to say, though: looking at the new pictures has me feeling serious nostalgia for Aniston's first wedding. Her marriage to Brad Pitt didn't last, but the wedding will live on in the hearts of everyone who is obsessed with late '90s/early '00s pop culture.
Aniston's first wedding was a much larger affair. It was 2000, so intimate weddings weren't super "in" at the time. According to Celebrity Bride Guide, Aniston's wedding to Pitt took place in Malibu, and there were 200 guests in attendance. As for the dress, Aniston went for a frock that would stand the test of time — and, sure enough, her stunning gown was a glass-beaded Lawrence Steele number that will never stop being breathtaking. In fact, anyone who was obsessed with Aniston in the early '00s (which should basically be everyone) has to remember the gown. If not, here is a quick refresher:
Totally stunning, right? Even in the retro black-and-white of the photo, it's clear the dress was killer. Aniston's first nuptials were a traditional affair. Among the 200 guests were famous faces like Cameron Diaz, Courteney Cox, and Edward Norton (hey, Pitt's film Fight Club came out in 1999, so it makes sense). The whole wedding had a zen feeling, but it was also part-rock concert.
There were several musical performances and they too were '00s-tastic. There were fireworks set to the tunes of Jeff Buckley, Radiohead, and Garbage. Meanwhile, Melissa Etheridge performed, because Aniston is a boss.
The wedding produced one of the most popular celebrity couples of all time, and as much fun as it is to look back on the duo, it is clear Aniston has moved on just by looking at the low-key, private ceremony she and Theroux had. Pitt and Aniston's big day is definitely one for the history books, but Aniston's latest nuptials are just as special — they had muppet wedding cake toppers, after all!
Congrats to Jen and Justin!
