Islamorada Florida in the Keys....

A great little place!!
Pines and Palms in Islamorada Florida.

It just seemed like old Florida, the Florida I knew growing up in the 50's and 60's, before Disney.

Amanda enjoying the hammock.

The plants are so beautiful so tropical...

Not very busy this time of year..

This guy was taking pictures, I'm sure they turn out beautiful.

We did some of this.

We didn't do this but we could have if we wanted to!!

Have a great week!!
First day of school here.  My girls are in college at UCF!!
Katie and Emily have a great day!

Ryan and Nicole's Islamarada Florida wedding!

My Amanda went to middle and high school with Nicole.
They have been good friends for about 16 years.
Lots of dance classes together.
Being on the high school dance team.
Amanda doesn't have any stories to tell about their school days.
At least that's what she says.
Her lips are sealed...

It was a beautiful day and a beautiful place.

Here are Nicole's nieces serving water on the beach right before the service.
What a great idea!!

Just look at the beautiful setting.
The weather was perfect.
The sun setting behind the building, so there was shade on the ceremony.

The priest heading on over to get ready...

The flowers are simply beautiful..

Sweet faces all around..

Looking for the bride....

Big smiles all around...

Look at these handsome men..

Lots of happy people waiting for the bride..

Waiting patiently...

Beautiful sister, maid of honor.....

New sister in law and sister...

Here he is!!! 

Here she comes!!


Here are Amanda and Nicole..
Pretty ladies!!
Open bar!!
Waa Hoo!!

This is Kathy, the mother of the bride.
I'm sorry I didn't get any nice photo's of her at the ceremony.

Meet Doris, she has been Kathy's friend for a long time.

For some crazy reason blogger will not let me remove pictures, so here they are again!!

This is Amanda's high school friend Brittney.
Another beautiful lady!!
Thank you Brittney for being so nice to us!!

It was a wonderful day!!
