Gavin Nicholas Martino

Great Grand~ Pop Armando
Dom & Carrie (Momma & Papa)
Nonna & Pop Pop

The baby was all smiles ... dressed in a beautiful Irish Linen Christening Gown and ready for the big day .
We arrived bearing food for the party afterwords .. some great antipasti and a few items for nibbling.. .the Prosecco was chilling as so apparently was Gavin... not a peep out of him as we passed him around for hugs and kisses and lots of pictures. His big brother Finn was very excited too ! lots of people in his house and a big party was in the making !
We drove to the beautiful church of St. Thomas in Glen Mills and gathered around Father Pete as he talked and joked with us .. it was a wonderful ceremony ... a ceremony that celebrated a new life and a new beginning . As Father Pete held up the baby and sang .. little Gavin smiled .. not one bit afraid !
We were all so proud & happy to be together for this very special day !

  1. The older I get the more firm I am in my opinion that it is all about family and friends and what a beautiful family you have! A beautiful family with a GREAT photographer! :) Love the pic of Gavin with Fr. Pete. St. Thomas is my daughter's parish and my husband and I have attended mass there. It is a lovely parish. Congrats on your beautiful grandson!
