limit a second date with jquery datepicker

I am using jquery datepicker for a "from" and "to" date.
I am trying to limit the "to" date to 7 business days (9 actual days) after the from date.
User should be able to pick any date after 2days in the future and then the "to" date would be any date from that date up to 9 days out.

I tried this and it works as long as the from date is the first available date, but fails after that.
  $(function() {
    $( "#from" ).datepicker({
      defaultDate: "+2d",
      minDate: "+2d",
      changeMonth: true,
      beforeShowDay: $.datepicker.noWeekends,
      onClose: function( selectedDate ) {
        $( "#to" ).datepicker( "option", "minDate", selectedDate );
      }
    });
   
    $( "#to" ).datepicker({
          defaultDate: "+2d",
      maxDate: "1w +4d",
      changeMonth: true,
      beforeShowDay: $.datepicker.noWeekends,
      onClose: function( selectedDate ) {
        $( "#from" ).datepicker( "option", "maxDate", selectedDate );
      }
    });
  });

I don't know how to get the "from" date and add "1w +4d" to it.

Thanks for any help
