The image that captured it, and the story that made it the most memorable moment for 10 real brides.

"As I neared the altar my parents both gave me a hug and a kiss, and Robb came down the steps to meet me. I remember being seized by a strange, sudden shyness toward the handsome man walking up to me. But then I looked at his face and saw his smile and the joy in his eyes, and knew I had absolutely no doubts about marrying him. This photograph makes us both nostalgic for the loveliness of that day—we wish we could live it all over again."
—Meghan Anderson, married in Wheaton, IL
