**Florida Re-cap & Lots of Photos!**

Not a lot of words today, just LOTS of photos :) I was very happy with how most of my pictures came out using my new camera. I especially loved the ones in the natural light; I think I still have a lot to learn when it comes to indoor photography..but like I said, it's just for fun and to document life events. I'm not planning on going pro or anything like that.

My handsome guy after rriving at our hotel.. You can tell he already looks thrilled about the camera lol.

The pool at our hotel, nothing special and we didn't really get to spend that much time there anyway.

Such a hottie<3

My cousin's aunt & uncle's house where the ceremony was held..

My cousin, Alyssa and her boyfriend, Dennis.

My cousin and his two brothers. Their mom and dad are seated just in front of them.

With this ring...

The youngest daughter of the bride. 

My other cousin's daughter, Angelia. She's the cutest, however, she wasn't feeling too good that day :(

The oldest of the three boys with his niece :)

The Bride and Groom.


The "wedding party" :)

Angelia's mom and dad, my cousin and his fiancee.

More group shots including baby Kaidence, the son of the bride and groom..

Funny candid of my uncle as my cousin was dropping a bowl of fruit..

On the verge of a meltdown!

Absolutely loving the next generation of cousins.



Had to get in a few of us, too ;)

On the drive home, we saw a sign for a 'Manatee Viewing Center'. I'm a sucker for manatees, so while S was snoozing in the passenger seat, I took a little detour. 

Those four little bumps in the water are manatees!

That's it! 

I hope you all enjoyed the photos of our trip to Florida. Like I said, I'm not claiming to be a photographer by any means, but I do enjoy taking pictures. I also was not the primary photographer at the wedding, they did have a professional (that's why in a lot of the pictures, everyone was looking off somewhere else!) I hope to get a lot more use out of my new camera and soon!

Side note: As I started adding photos to this post, I decided it didn't do them justice to not be edited a bit. All photos posted here have been edited by me :)

You took great pictures, Kelly! First of all, congratulations to the newlyweds! They make a sweet couple. The sceneries look lovely! I love your shot of the sky and palm trees by the hotel pool and the manatee watch area. I’m sure that you loved your trip in Florida. I hope to see more photos of your adventures next time.
