Abby and Josh's engagement session was one of my very favorites last year. At that point, they weren't planning on getting married until some time in 2011. I was so surprised and happy when Abby texted me a few months ago to ask if I had a date in July open :)
Josh and Abby said their vows in front of a small group of family and close friends at the chapel in Tanglewood Park on a perfect Friday afternoon. The ceremony was so beautiful and heartfelt, the reception was lighthearted and fun, and I know that Josh and Abby are so completely happy to be married. Enjoy the images!

Abby and her girls got ready in the loft at the Tanglewood Barn.
Isn't she beautiful?
I love this shot of Josh helping his brother, Sam, get ready for the ceremony.
We snapped a few shots of Josh with his best man and a couple of his sisters right before the ceremony. I think they were more nervous than he was!
Josh was sneaking glances at Abby during the whole ceremony. So cute!
At one point during the ceremony, Josh and Abby's parents were invited up to pray for the couple. This was such a powerful moment.
I love the bare feet after the foot washing part of the ceremony.
A quiet moment between the newlyweds before rounds of hugs for the family.
Abby and Josh had scoped out some good spots in Tanglewood for romantics the week before the wedding. We had great locations and beautiful afternoon light... this was one of the best parts of the day in my opinion :)
This photo cracks me up. Love it!
See what I mean about the afternoon light? I love the golden glow coming off Abby's dress.
This tiny bridal party made the "formal" pictures so easy!
A sweet moment between Josh, Abby, and Josh's grandpa.
Josh surprised Abby by performing a song he wrote for her. I love her face in this image. She is so completely happy.
There was a lot of swing dancing going on during this reception. So much fun!
Abby and Josh... you guys are great. I am so glad I got to celebrate with you!
