Sammy’s Bat Mitzvah ~ Congregation Sinai & Four Points Sheraton

I photographed Sammy’s family and her rehearsal at Congregation Sinai in the morning. The festivities for the evening started off with toasts and cocktails in a party room with close family at Four Points Sheraton. Sammy’s theme was Snap, Brush, Flow because she loves photography, art & dance. They had a photo booth, Caricature FlissART and of course an awesome dance party complete with a surprise dance performance to really bring all of Sammy’s favorite things to the party. Their event was in the Grand Ballroom and they did such an amazing job decorating. They had a light blue and white color scheme for the candy, balloons & table linens with little pops of coral brought in with the flowers. It was a gorgeous design! Once again, Energy Productions, had the party rockin’ all night long! Their DJ set up is like nothing I’ve ever seen. Check out Sammy’s highlight slideshow with video clips here or below:
