Landen's Baptism | Ancient Spanish Monastery

 

Landen's baptism took place at the Ancient Spanish Monastery in Miami. Landen is definitely an outdoorsy kinda boy, so being cooped up inside made him a little upset. I can't blame him though - as beautiful as the chapel is, Landen knew the light outside would be perfect for pictures.

After the ceremony and a few family portraits, I followed the family back to their home for a gorgeous dinner outside celebrating Landen's baptism. Michelle planned a beautiful evening under bistro lights complete with wildflowers and mason jar sweets, and I even got to try my FIRST EVER tres leches cake. Wonder if I can hire her to plan my own birthday party?

I had so much fun celebrating with Landen and his family - can't wait for his second birthday! (ok, I'm pretty excited about the paella and Michelle's sweets, too)
