She holds on to her son's shoulder as they begin to sway back and forth. His new wife is standing at the edge of the dance floor. She, along with hundreds of friends and family, look on as Mrs. Beyl slowly rests her head on her son, her eyes filling with tears. The song playing overhead details a mother's prayer for her son's future spouse. And it went a little something like this,

"Wading pools and big boy tools

His busy hands at play

Somewhere other tiny hands

that will join his one day (...)

Light the path that she's begun

Give her faith, for she's the one

Who will grow into the woman

Who will stand beside my son"

Zoom in on me.

In the corner.

Hiding my face behind the camera because I may or may be crying thinking about my two month old baby boy.

Abby and Conrad’s families prayed for this day for a very long time. And in my humble opinion: it was perfect. The details were breathtaking. From the maroon bridesmaid dresses, to the blue thistle in the flower arrangements, to something borrowed wrapped around Abby’s bouquet, to the gasp-worthy veil... it’s safe to say that this wedding was one of a fall bride’s dreams. As an October bride myself, I must say I was a little jealous of the decor of the Beyl wedding.

Even more beautiful than the flowers and the dress was the giggling couple tying the knot. It didn't take long to recognize that Abby and Conrad are absolute best friends. Always joking around, always laughing with each other. As amazing as a big, gorgeous wedding may be, the real beauty is when you can look at the other person standing next to you and say, "Not only do I love you, but I actually really like you too!"

So here's to crisp Fall days, whimsical bouquets, Aunt Deb's wedding cake, rugged boots, and vintage rings. Here's to you, Abby and Conrad, and the beautiful future ahead of you!
