Real Wedding Moments

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

"At 2 a.m. Marc and I, along with our closest friends and family, were the last ones standing. Earlier I'd changed out of my wedding gown and into a shorter dress—I couldn't have performed the level of dance moves I wanted while wearing a gown. Marc and I love party favors, and had passed out mustaches for the guys and crowns for the ladies—I never took mine off! Before we left, we stopped for a moment to soak it all in—this photograph makes my heart go pitter-patter."

—Katie Kennedy, married May 9, 2009, in Los Angeles
