NO MESS. NO FUSS.
I thought it would last a while until this day…
We waited for spring so we could schedule baby Luca’s baptism because we wanted to enjoy the nice weather. He was born in November and we didn’t want to rush with this event. He was too small and it was too cold, also.
So, we set it in April and we decided to have a small ceremony with family only. I always felt that this ceremony should be more private, especially for the baby, because he always gets nervous when there’s too many people around him.
And for us it was even better this way because we could really enjoy the event. And most important, baby Luca would have been really tired after a long day at a restaurant filled with people and music. The baptism itself is already too much for a baby, in my opinion.
We wanted Casin Monastery for the baptism. We know that the ceremony is very special and unique there. Moreover, everything si really well organised, there were seats for the guests and the priest guided us every step through the baptism so everything would be perfect. What I noticed in other churches is that there are no rules and it gets growded near the church font. We wanted to avoid that.
The ceremony was very touching. Although baby Luca cried a bit much, everything turned out perfect. The priest was kind enough to respect our wish and not sink him into the water, he only splashed a little on his head.
Of course that for such an important event I had to take care of my hair and make-up and I want to tell you a bit about that. I took care of both by myself, because I didn’t have the time and the mood to go anywhere. And my friend, the curling wand, is always there when I need it.
So I chose some loose curls for my hair and for make-up I wanted something discreet but a little bit more than an everyday make-up. I added a black eyeliner, some false lashes and a nude lipstick.
The eyeliner elongates the eyes and the false lashes accentuates them and looks very well in pics.
