Briley & Mike {Married} Part 1

Briley and Mike. …

I don’t even know where to begin. I’ve been a bit of an emotional gushball the last few days and it’s because this beautiful bride who stars in this very blog post is not only my friend. Not only my great friend. But she is one of those people that lights up a room as soon as she walks in. She smiles and a stranger will gladly smile back (she pretty much just made their day).  She’s one of those people when you are friends with her, you just don’t.let.go! Needless to say..this sissy “writer” and photographer right here loves her VERY much! They are an easily loved couple.

Briley and Mike became home owners last year. On a very cold, very wet and VERY windy wedding day, this is where it started for us. In the snugness of their home.
