Sophie’s Bat Mitzvah ~ Congregation Beth Israel Ner Tamid & Harry and Rose Samson Jewish Community Center

The day before Sophie’s Bat Mitzvah I came to capture her rehearsal at Congregation Beth Israel Ner Tamid. We also captured some great family portraits. Sophie’s party took place the next night at the Harry & Rose Samson Family Jewish Community Center. The Daniel M. Soref Community Hall looked fabulous all decked out with Sophie’s music theme. The family did such an impressive job with all the details! A-Z Entertainment was amazing and kept the dance floor packed all night! It was definitely a very fun night and everyone had a great time! I highly recommend A-Z Entertainment! Check out Sophie’s mixed media slideshow with lots of fun video clips here or below:

The room looked amazing!

I love the idea of the backstage passes on lanyards instead of table assignment cards.
