Kristen and I have been friends since we were Brownie Girl Scouts. We've grown up together, sharing secrets and struggles and triumphs. We've traveled, camped, and survived middle school together; we played varsity lacrosse together in high school, and we made sure to catch up every Christmas when we were each back in our hometown of Matthews, NC, every year after. It was during one of these visits home that I first met Brittany, and I knew - just in that few hours - that she was perfect for Kristen. They light each other up, get each other intuitively, and their relationship brings joy to everyone around them.

I can't express how honored and happy I was to be able to witness their New York City wedding! Kristen and Brittany got married in my new hometown of NYC in September at city hall and I was thrilled to photograph it (more photos below!), and today, I'm so happy to celebrate with them again at their second wedding celebration in North Carolina!
