Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes marked their first wedding anniversary this weekend.

On Nov. 18, 2006, the couple married in front of 150 friends and family in an Italian castle, then hit the Maldives for a two-week honeymoon with baby daughter Suri – and by all accounts, their relationship has never been stronger.

“As big as (the wedding) was from the outside,” Cruise recently told Entertainment Tonight, “it was a very personal experience and something obviously I’ll never forget.”
