{Pictures} My Baby's Dedication

I recieved the pictures from Dean's dedication the other day and wanted to post a few of my favorites! {All pictures taken by Lori Leigh Photography}

This is one of my favorite pictures from that day {me and my boy just before his dedication service started}. I love this baby more than words can do justice and am so, so, so blessed that the Lord chose me to be his mother.

The dedication itself took place on a covered outdoor patio at The Rushes. Chairs were set up for our guests to view the service, and we were able to stand in a place where the beautiful golf course was our backdrop. Reverend James Watson performed the dedication. He also married my husband and I two years ago and baptized me when I was 10!

Some of my family watching the service.

Jack couldn't stop talking during the service so his daddy had to have a little chat with him in the corner - haha. Love him!

Dean and his amazing Daddy.

After the service, everyone moved inside to a small private room for a breakfast buffet. I had a little table set up with Dean's picture, his cake, invitation, etc.

His first bible from Mommom & Pop.

Bo and I wanted to include a few yummy cocktails to compliment the breakfast buffet. Mimosas and Bloody Marys it was!

The waitresses buttlered them around the room for everyone to enjoy.

I loved this cake! An old church friend who is a very talented pastry chef made it for me. Not only did it perfectly coordinate with the invitation and coordinating items I made, but it was delicious! I added the cake topper for a little extra flare :-}

A little slice of heaven....vanilla bavarian with a fresh berry filling.

Each table held a centerpiece that I made along with a tented menu listing all of the eats for the day.

Family & friends enjoying their brunch!
