Misty-eyed? Us too. Moments like these—a mother seeing her daughter, ready in her wedding dress, just minutes away from walking down the aisle—are born of a lifetime of love, of washing off scraped knees, and drying tears, and celebrating every triumph no matter how small.

In honor of Mother's Day (it's Sunday!) we've assembled some of our favorite wedding moments shared between the bride, the groom, and their proud mamas. Grab a box of Kleenex: These quick kisses, quiet moments, and reassuring—albeit tearful—smiles are going to tug on your heartstrings.
