A beautiful Baptism and Vow renewal in the North End, Boston

So, normally Christian gets to write about our shoots and sneak peeks but I had to butt in this time.  Last Thursday was such an amazing and special day!  It isn't every day that you get to witness two lifetime milestones in the same day!!  These are the days that we step back in awe and count our blessings that we are able to do what we love and document the most beautiful times and moments in people's lives.  Edy and Rovena were already married, but wanted to renew their vows in the incredible St. Leonard's Church in the North End, as well as baptize their baby girl, Sophia.  Although the day started out a little bit windy, the sun was out and shining on this gorgeous couple as we walked around North Square, Christopher Columbus Park and the streets of the North End before the ceremony started.  The vow renewal was followed by Sophia getting her first sacrament.  As a mother, it was so emotional for me to witness both ceremonies, knowing that they will be able to look back and remember such a special shared day!  The black and white treatment on these images just lent to such a timeless and extraordinary day!  We are so honored that we were able to be a part of this family's lives and we hope that the images below bring it justice!  Congratulations to Edy, Rovena and Sophia and all of their family!  :)
