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.

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.

And each was a little bit different … from funny to emotional to a little of both!

When friendship has been through the test of time, you can’t help but get emotional on their wedding day!
