A Saturday in Florence…

…Florence, Alabama that is. πŸ™‚

My cousin got married and it was gorgeous. I think I’ll let the photos do the talking, though. πŸ™‚

We arrived in Florence early to see some of the sites. This is Helen Keller’s birth place!

This is the water spout where Helen Keller had her first break through (her tutor spelled w-a-t-e-r on her hand while her hand was covered in water).

We ate lunch at this place in downtown Florence. It was completely amazing. Seriously, SO good! And the atmosphere was super cozy.

The pizza we split. Oh my gracious it was tasty! I loved it, but Christopher REALLY loved it. It’s his all time favorite pizza right now!

“Horsing around” in downtown Florence (sorry, couldn’t help myself :P)

After exploring Florence, we got all snazzied up for the weddin’!

Two of my beautiful sisters!

The ring bearers and flower girl (recognize that precious little girl? You should, she’s my niece Kenzie!)

Kelsey’s dad escorts her down the aisle

Nick reads his vows to Kelsey

Nick’s vows were so sweet that they had Kelsey in tears (and most of the audience too, haha!)


Just after the kiss πŸ™‚

Kenzie waiting for the party to start!

Us being silly at the reception

Nick and Kelsey’s first dance (notice that Kelsey changed into anΒ antiqueyΒ type dress for the reception!)

Christopher and I dancing. The photographer got several of us all dancing when we were bouncing up and down and being silly so whenever I see them, I’ll be sure to share! πŸ™‚

Us with the beautiful bride and groom!

It was a beautiful wedding and a beautiful day. So happy for them! They are in New York now and then after that are headed to Italy and then Egypt. πŸ™‚
