Curio Studios is dedicated to capturing your life’s milestones and important moments. This time, we helped to commemorate the Greek baptism of John and Stephanie’s daughter, Victoria.
The ceremony took place at the beautiful Greek Orthodox Church of St. Irene Chrisovalantou in Toronto. Each step of the Greek baptism process is enriched with symbolism and meaning, from the entrance into the church to the blessing of the child. After the child is given her name during the ceremony, she is baptized naked by the priest: first with Holy Water and then she is anointed with oil. The child is then clothed with new garments as a symbol of her new life after the baptism. The entire ritual is an expression of God’s love for His children and is an extremely significant moment in each child’s life.
Following the baptism, a celebratory dinner was held at The Forth. The restaurant and cake was decorated with balloons and SugarPop Rentals set up an incredible candy bar that was a huge hit with the kids. The theme of the occasion was the balloons, which was inspired from the movie “Up”. The balloon symbolizes not only travel and an expansion of a person’s horizons but also the bright future Victoria has ahead of her.
It was such a privilege to be a witness to Victoria’s baptism and to be able to celebrate with the entire family the start of a child’s new life.
