Carly + Josh's wedding day

Friday night my sister in law and now brother in law tied the knot by the light of a fall moon. It was such a beautiful day! Our day started with a bridesmaid's breakfast at First Watch then getting our hair done at the salon.
The forecast for the day was storms and rain, but the weather cleared up for pictures and in time to have the outdoor ceremony as planned. Just look at this family I'm a part of...they are all gorgeous.
My favorite detail from their wedding was this cute coffee truck that was parked just outside where they had the ceremony. The drinks were delicious and it was a fun backdrop for pictures.
My sweet husband officiated the wedding ceremony and did an amazing job and I was just excited that 1.) I didn't go into labor and 2.) That I fit in my bridesmaid's dress at 9 months pregnant.
The reception decor was perfect for fall. Pumpkins, gold and burlap touches and a fire in the fireplace.
I got this picture from someone's Instagram. I know it's fuzzy, but I just love it. So much warmth and happiness.
To top it off the day, Drew's Uncle and cousins created this moon backdrop to mirror a picture taken way back when of Drew's grandparents from a high school dance sitting under the moon together.
I was too busy stuffing my face with cupcakes and dancing to "Wobble, Baby" to take many more pictures, but it was a perfect night with so many sweet details.

Towards the end of the night Drew and I went outside and just stared up at the stars. We held hands and shed a few tears over Terry not being there in person with us, but I know my father in law was smiling down on us all and was proud that his family celebrated love in such a big way. I'm so thankful to be part of such an amazing family.

Everything about this wedding is gorgeous! The bride, the fireplace, the whole family! The coffee truck is such a genius idea. I'd be all about that hot cocoa. So happy that everything worked out wonderfully.

First off, you are the most gorgeous bridesmaid ever! Seriously, I wish I looked as good as you did in any of my bridesmaids photos, and I've never been anywhere close to pregnant. Pregnancy looks good on you, Allison!

Secondly, what a beautiful wedding! Drew's family are all ridiculous stunning (seriously, totally unfair!) and everybody looks so happy and in love. Absolutely amazing!

Thirdly, we're all thinking of you and Aiden (and Drew) during this time! Sending hugs and prayers your way!
