The image that captured it, and the story that made it the most memorable moment for 13 real brides.

"We probably looked nervous and awkward in the portraits we'd taken before the ceremony, we assumed, so during the reception, as guests were eating dinner, Peter noticed the sun was about to set and said, 'Let's find Charlotte [our photographer] and go out to the meadow!' This meant we'd have a chance to catch the 'magic hour' of light and get more natural-looking shots. I'm so grateful that Peter created this moment for us—it was so quiet and relaxed, even though this big, wonderful party was going on just behind us."

—Sarah, married July 3 in Philadelphia
