Though Logan was given just weeks to live, the couple, from Jeannette, Pennsylvania, about 40 minutes from Pittsburgh, plans to honor him as their best man.

The pictures show a sweet, young boy, deeply loved by his family. His mother, Christine, spoke to CNN.

“Me and Sean wanted to have a nice wedding next July,” she said. “There’s no way I can get married and not have Logan in our family photos.” And certainly, Logan will shine in his fine wedding suit. With 120 to 130 wedding guests, there will be plenty to celebrate.
