I am so thrilled to be ushering in the 2018 season with William’s red and silver themed bar mitzvah! Last Friday evening, I joined the Kurlander family as they kicked off William’s bar mitzvah festivities. We began with family photos and Torah readings at Beth-El Zedeck just before the evening service. William is a natural in front of the lens and can he rock a red bow tie or what? Gotta love a guy with style!
On Saturday, I arrived to the Renaissance Hotel early to snag some detail shots and get a few more family photos before the real party began. Adults enjoyed a cocktail hour with hor d’oeuvres while the younger crowd hung out in the banquet room, taking full advantage of the green screen photobooth and snack station. Soon it was time for the blessing of the wine and bread, followed by a welcome by William’s parents. After the dinner plates were cleared, guests enjoyed a slideshow featuring highlights and fond memories of William’s 13 years. Next came the Hora (my favorite part of any bar mitzvah!) where four strong men hoised William into the air as all his friends and family danced around him. The remainder of the evening was filled with plenty of desserts, dancing and good tunes provided by the awesome DJ Tim Fuller. You couldn’t ask for a better celebration!
To the Kurlander family, I can’t thank you enough for asking me to capture this incredible event! I thoroughly enjoyed working with each and every one of you. And congratulations William on your outstanding accomplishment!
