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

"I was feeling anxious about the rain, because I'd planned to have an outdoor wedding. But when I looked out the window and saw some friends scurrying across the wet dirt road, making their way to the ceremony, I remembered that no amount of rain could change the fact that I was marrying my best friend. I couldn't help but smile."

—Michele, married September 26 in Chattahoochee Hills, GA
