The day you were born.
14 October 2012
The day we dedicated you to our dear Lord.
We decided a while ago that instead of having our little SJ christened or baptized in a church, we would have a dedication for her at home. This was a personal opinion as our pastor explained that a dedication was a more informal occasion where we dedicated her and promise to bring her up in a Christian home but that one day, she could make the decision to follow the Lord.
We chose a day that she would be of an interactive age and when her godmother, and our close family and friends could join us. My wonderful in-laws allowed us to use their beautiful seaside home as the venue – we have the small service upstairs and then invited guests to a light meal and to mingle downstairs.
I used to work for an Advertising and Events company and with many amazing eventing blogs as well as Pinterest, I put a few ideas together and planned the day myself. I have been blessed to work with great suppliers and vendors (all credited below) but the ladies at Glee Projects brought everything together for me. We played around with ideas and they put the final touches together and did all our printing – they made my life a whole lot easier.
The day was so beautiful and special, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Our little SJ, you are a blessing to us all sweet child… I think pictures speak 1000 words. Enjoy!
