When you become part of a couple you often get the benefit of adding friends to your inner circle through your partner. That is the case with Chris and Ellen. Chris and my husband, Charles, are "brothers from another mother." It's quite a wonderful relationship they have and I've really enjoyed getting to know Chris, mostly from afar, as Charles and I moved to the West Coast less than a year after we started dating. Through Chris, I've had the opportunity to get to know his wife Ellen and, two years ago, Charles was the best man at their wedding. I was not the official photographer, but as the wife of one of the wedding party, I had a lot of time on my hands so I brought my camera. I had a lot of fun snapping pictures of the two of them at such a picturesque location, the Rosemont Manor in Berryville, Virginia.
