Baptism Day

For a while now we've been trying to figure out what to do as far as a baptism goes. We don't belong to a church, but we really felt it was important to have Megan baptized. When we got married, we hired a minister who came to our site to perform the ceremony. It felt like the right thing to do to contact him and see if he'd perform the baptism. When we called him, he said he often gets requests from couples he's married to baptize their children. With that, the decision was made to travel to his home church to have the ceremony performed. It would be a private service, on a Saturday morning.

Here are some photos from the service:

And more photos of Megan in her beautiful baptismal gown:

The dress was just beautiful. It's too bad there isn't reason to dress her up in it a few more times before she outgrows the dress.
