Jordan Rice and Jessica Moreland both became widowed in their 20s, ABC News reports. But they found love again after mutual friends suggested that they meet because both had experienced overwhelming heartache at such a young age.

"Jordan and I talked about this the first time we met -- never feeling like we could be excited about a person again," said Jessica, now 30.

"We knew we would meet someone, but it would never be the same, and nothing could reach the pinnacle that it was before."

But on June 22, they married in a simple ceremony in Baltimore that friends say even included the families of their late spouses and brought all to tears.
