Last, but not least…it’s time to party!
We’ve so enjoyed sharing Erica and Josh’s wedding day with you – if you’ve missed any part of their day, take a moment and check out her bridal portraits, the getting ready. the ceremony, the bride and groom portraits/bridal party pictures, and the rustic wedding reception decor.
Baby L was a trooper at the reception! She hung in there with the “big kids” and had a blast.
It just doesn’t get any cuter than this! I was amazed that she fell asleep a little later in her car seat and slept through all the music and noise. She truly is the laid-back sweet joy that her mom and dad described.
Josh and Erica had their first dance, and he was all smiles.
I loved how it seemed like they only saw each other throughout the whole first dance.
Erica’s father was beaming with joy…
And Josh’s mother was full of emotional happiness…
Their cake fit their burlap and rustic theme so well – and the monogram on top was a personalized touch.
Cake smash? Yep, he went for it!
And he’s very lucky he has a wife who is a good sport… 😉 He gave us the signature Josh thumbs-up, and she giggled.
Their friends and family toasted their wedding…
And each was a little bit different … from funny to emotional to a little of both!
Erica’s maid of honor kept us laughing…
But also brought sweet tears…
When friendship has been through the test of time, you can’t help but get emotional on their wedding day!
Finally, it was time to dance the night away…
And show off some new wedding bling!
Of course, compete with the thumbs up. 🙂
And all the guests had a blast kicking up their heels!
From line dances to slow songs, everyone filled the dance floor.
It was such a joyful reception, with so much excitement and love celebrating the couple.
As the night came to a close, we photographed Erica and Josh by their “getaway car” …
Which was decorated and ready to roll!
Congratulations, Erica and Josh! May you have as much joy in your wedding as you did on your wedding day – and may you always be surrounded by family and friends with love and celebration!
