Sweetest Celebrations! - Baptism & 1st Birthday Party in Sonoma

September 07, 2015

Today I'm sharing a first birthday/baptism party from wayyyy back in May!  It's been hiding for too long, so I'm excited to share :)

Sal and Kina are two amazing friends of mine that I've known since middle school, and their love story is one that all hopeless romantics would swoon over.  Their romantic relationship began in high school, and over the years it's proved to be so much more than puppy love.  They seem to be stronger and more in love with each passing day... it's truly inspiring!  They welcomed their son, Sal Jr., in 2014 and he's complimented their family to the fullest.  For little Sal's first birthday, Sal and Kina wanted to celebrate in a big way, and decided that baptizing him with all of their loved ones surrounding them would be the best way to do it!

With heartfelt help from family, they set up an amazingly beautiful day with no detail left undone.  Amazing homemade Mexican food, a beautiful dessert and gift table, a games area, and decorations that fit the theme just perfectly.  My favorite part of it all was watching Little Sal being pulled in a decorated Radio Flyer to the priest, as everyone blew bubbles and played music for him...  he smiled non-stop and had such a great time!

It was such an honor to be a part of this special day, and brings me such joy to see my friends so happy and complete.  Thanks again Sal and Kina for having me!! xoxo
