"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the unique, loving and spiritual Baby Blessing Ceremony you performed for our “Kai." It was absolutely perfect.  I will always remember it and cherish it in my memories and in my heart!   He was transfixed by you – it was glorious.  I loved how you gave us the beautiful meaning of his name as well. Wonderful. You  are AWESOME! "~Char

"Vince officiated the most beautiful baby blessing for our daughter. He really took the time to get to know our little family and make the ceremony so personal and beautiful. Our whole family couldn't stop talking about what a wonderful ceremony it was. Our daughter is so blessed in that she has 11 grandparents and Vince managed to incorporate every single one of them. Please feel free to contact me for an additional reference. Thank you Vince, if we're blessed with another child we will be calling you again."

With grateful hearts,  Jenny, Joey

Baby Blessings 

A baby blessing is a wonderful ceremony to celebrate a new life. The ceremony honors the life of a baby and is a time for prayerful intentions for a good life with blessings for the journey. The ceremony also invites the  parents to offer their pledge of support and love. Family and friends gather around the baby to welcome the new child onto this planet and honor him or her with all that she or he will contribute to the wider world around them.
