Even before their wedding, Cruise and Holmes' relationship was the center of much media attention after the Rock of Ages star famously declared his love for Holmes while jumping on a couch on The Oprah Winfrey Show.

This was the first marriage for Holmes, 33, and the third for Cruise, who turns 50 on Tuesday. He was previously married to Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman, with whom he has two children, Isabella, 19, and Connor, 17.
