Long before Mariah Carey's surprise nuptials to Nick Cannon at her Bahamian estate on April 30, 2008, the pop star, then 23, wed music exec Tommy Mottola, 43, during a lavish (approx. $500,000) ceremony at St. Thomas Episcopal Church and reception at the Metropolitan Club in New York City on June 5, 1993.
Bride Carey wore a Vera Wang gown with a 27-foot-long-train and Princess Diana-style tiara and was flanked by 50 flower girls (in stark contrast to the mini-wedding dress she wore to her Halloween party in 2005, see left). Their 300 guests included the likes of Barbra Streisand, Bruce Springsteen and Ozzy Osbourne. Although the couple divorced in 1998, Mariah managed to recycle her dress for the 2005 video "We Belong Together." Hmmm, did she also then give it a serious hem-job for that costume party?
