I loved their sign that hung over the altar for the wedding ceremony – “I love you to the moon and back!”

Their unity sand was made from burlap and mason jars – very rustic, and quite perfect for their day.

The pew hangers carried the mason jar theme with shepherd’s hooks…

And sweet sprays of baby’s breath.

Another sign invited guests to mix and mingle in their seating by picking a seat – not a side.

Family and friends are so important to Erica and Josh, and so it’s no wonder that they had two flower girls and three ring bearers!

Each had a different job…

And their last ring bearer carried a very special sign…

And then it was time!

Erica and her father were all smiles down the aisle!

Josh was anxiously awaiting Erica at the altar, and her father gave her a quick kiss before they joined hands.

Josh was excited, and ready to get the show on the road!

He snuck a kiss before the end of the ceremony while her maid of honor made sure her train was all straight. 🙂
