There's a line from Nicholas Sparks' book "A Walk to Remember" that goes, "First you will smile, and then you will cry — don't say you haven't been warned."
Keep that in mind as you take a look at the throwback pic Mandy Moore just posted.
The photo-of-a-photo is actually a souvenir Moore kept from the set of the 2002 big screen adaptation of Sparks' coming-of-age tearjerker.
It shows her — in the role of ailing Jamie — and her co-star Shane West — as Landon, aka every then-tween's idea of Mr. Right — on their wedding day.
And sure, that's worth a smile.
Until you remember that their I-dos were really just a prelude to — spoiler alert — the ultimate goodbye! Bring on those tears.
