Sweet William was baptized at St. John’s Greek Orthodox in late September. You might remember this beautiful church and family from when William’s sister, Sophia was baptized. She is now an adorable 2.5 year old with beautiful long golden locks! You’ll see her throughout this post.
I am in the midst of studying for midterms, doing assignments, preparing for presentations and writing research papers. That’s what I get for taking four masters’ classes in one semester.
Selah is a biblical word used often in the Psalms to mean interlude or pause. As the clock nears noon and I’m getting hungry, I decided to take a selah from studying to look through photos from William’s Baptism that took place a week and a half ago. I found this little treasure and just had to share.
You might recognize Ben from his 2009 and 2010 family photo shoots. He is the oldest kid and only son of the fun Strober family and he recently married his beautiful bride Alexis. I had the honor of capturing the moments of their tropical rehearsal dinner which took place in Melbourne, FL on the back porch of the Crowne Plaza. It was so pretty outside and such a fun rehearsal dinner with plenty of food, dancing, toasts and laughs to go around.
Congratulations Alexis and Ben! Thanks for letting me be a part of the weekend.
Jessica guessed it . . . the mystery behind the mask and feathers are my mother, Dutchess Ruia and my father Duke Joe of the Krewe of Venus. Which is basically one of many fun, social clubs in Tampa. They are serving on the court this year so a few of us attended their coronation ball in January. Enjoy these few photos from the colorful Fire and Ice Event.
You might remember Queen Morgan from her Queen’s Ball . . . she’s presiding over the Krewe another year.
I believe that these are the proud grandparents of the queen.
