Chris+Mike | Wedding | Bristol RI

We spent a lovely warm day in August celebrating two people we love.  Mike and Chris are good friends of ours and when it was time for them to plan their wedding we offered to shoot the wedding as a gift.  We started the day off getting ready at a friends house.  It was a rare treat to shoot the getting ready together.  Usually Andrew and I split up at that time.

It was a perfect treat since it was so hot!
