Princess Maxima & Prince Willem-Alexander's Wedding: A Look Back (PHOTOS)

Once upon a time, in a land not too far away (read: The Netherlands), Prince Willem-Alexander took Argentine investment banker Maxima Zorreguieta's hand in marriage. It was February 2, 2002 and the pair married first in a civil ceremony in the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam and then in a religious ceremony at the Nieuwe Kerk church in front of 1,500 guests. And in true, regal fashion, the royal couple took an ornate carriage across town to get from one part of the wedding to the other.

Join us in our nuptial nostalgia as we take a look back at the wedding of Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima.
