When it comes to baptisms there are a lot of thoughts to consider such as; who you want baptizing your baby, where you want to get them baptized, who you want to be there for the event, etc. My husband and I got married in a quaint chapel in Beaver Creek, Colorado on September 21, 2013, by a fabulous pastor named Mark. When we got married we had decided that we wanted to baptize our children in the church we were married in to make it that much more meaningful. Three years after we said ‘I do’ we welcomed our little baby girl, Brooklyn Ann into the world on September 15th, 2016. We had her baptized in the Beaver Creek Chapel with a small ceremony that included our immediate family and a few close friends. Pastor Mark and his amazing wife made the event very special by having the chapel decor be festive for the Christmas holiday, providing Brooklyn a certificate of her baptism, giving her the baptism towel we used to dry her forehead and a baptismal candle that was lit in honor of her special day. Pastor Mark spoke about our wedding ceremony three years prior and how meaningful it was for him to be able to marry us that day and then also baptize our baby years later. It was an absolutely amazing event! For those of you deciding what to do for a baptism, I would definitely consider having it at the same place you got married, by the same person who married you, to have an extra memorable baptism.
* Baptism gowns can be expensive, and I found Brookyln’s baptism dress and hat (combo) for only $24 at Dillard’s! It has adorable roses down the gown and I just added the fur vest from another outfit I bought at Dillard’s since it was a cold, snowy day.
As for my Merlot-colored dress, it is available at Nordstrom– it runs true to size and is elegant, sophisticated, and classy!
