Congratulations to these two beautiful brides!

The rain didn't dampen this wedding day one bit. In fact, we don't think it would have been the same without it!

The story of how these stunning brides met, their proposals, and pretty much every detail about these two ladies is nothing short of amazing

Jen and Mo met on a popular dating website. For the record, Jen messaged Mo first because she liked Mo's smile and her espoused love of theme parties. Mo responded because she thought Jen was cute and was intrigued by her wit and charm.

Their first date was at Nellie's Sports Bar. Mo was 40 minutes late, and Jen wore a hideous red hoodie. While waiting for Mo to arrive, Jen warned her that the bar was filled with dogs that night. Worried that she was about to meet a judgey jerk, Mo was relieved when she arrived and saw that Nellie's had partnered with the Washington Humane Society to sponsor a pet adoption night at the bar.

Their proposal story is also totally adorable

On one of their first dates, Jen surprised Mo with a picnic dinner and a movie on the National Mall. That movie was The Goonies, one of Jen's all time favorites. Seeing that Mo liked the movie, too, Jen knew they could continue in the relationship. Flash forward three years later to July 2015: while on the West Coast to visit Mo's sister and family, and on their way to Portland for a wedding, Jen convinced Mo to take a day trip to visit Astoria and Cannon Beach, Oregon -- two locations featured prominently in the film.

They visited The Goonies House, the jail (now turned film museum), Mo's Restaurant, Cannon Beach, and Ecola State Park. At the last stop, Jen took Mo to a bench overlooking the Pacific Ocean and played for her a slideshow with their favorite song, "I Want to Dance With Somebody". Jen told Mo she wanted to dance with her for the rest of their lives and asked Mo to marry her. Mo said YES!

 

Mo and Jen selected the Supreme Court of the United States for their first look Jen + Mo: Wedding PREVIEW | Photos from the HartyJen + Mo: Wedding PREVIEW | Photos from the HartyPhotos from the Harty ı Wedding, Event, & Lifestyle Photography ı www.photosfromtheharty.com Jen + Mo: Wedding PREVIEW | Photos from the HartyJen + Mo: Wedding PREVIEW | Photos from the HartyPhotos from the Harty ı Wedding, Event, & Lifestyle Photography ı www.photosfromtheharty.com

Not only was their first look meaningful because of the location, but their wedding parties surprised them with a double rainbow of umbrellas! 

We lined them up while the brides were taking some photographs at the top of the stairs, so when they turned around to head back to the limo, they were greeted with a little ray of sunshine!
