Baptism and Brunch

April 26, 2013


Jordi’s baptism mass was so beautiful. I’m a big baby when it comes to any type of ceremony! I cried when the other children were being baptized! After the ceremony our small party rushed home to dig into a platter of prosciutto, chorizo and a variety of cheeses and toasted our little blessing with sparkling prosecco. We then sat down for a proper brunch of lentil/veggie soup, kale waldorf salad, beef meatballs, pasta with homemade tomato sauce, warm ciabatta bread and lots of wine! Here are the pictures of the table arrangements. Enjoy!

    Hi Betty!
    I found your blog through Momagama. I loved reading your baptism entry. So beautiful! Your photos are stunning. What camera and lens do you use? I need a new one of both for pictures of my family/kids! 🙂
