Sparkly Sweet B’nai Mitzvah at Vuka North

Oh I’ve been waiting for this b’nai mitzvah for months and months. Ava and Samantha are first cousins, have grown up together, and celebrated their mitzvah together. I loved watching their slideshow during their party at Vuka North; you could literally watch them grow up together through the many photos their parents have taken since birth. These girlies are best friends.

We met early in the morning at Temple Beth Shalom for their portraits before their ceremony. Both girls wore sweet white dresses, and were just so darn cute on the bema together. I had to include a photo of the chair they set for Samantha’s mom–sadly, she passed away a couple of years ago, but she would be so proud of the beautiful young lady Samantha is. (I confess it was really hard not to cry during the slideshow.)

Vuka North was PACKED with friends and family that evening; over 200 people came to celebrate! Ava and Samantha arrived with their families beforehand to capture some fun portraits, and we had a blast. Their decor was so epic! Sparkly sparkly everything! Disco balls, glittery backdrops for fun photos, balloons draped on everything. It was so pretty, and reflected their friendship so well (“AS” was their logo on everything). Guests enjoyed hair tinsel treats, a photo booth with props, delicious Mediterranean food and were sporting custom sweatshirts by the end of the night. This was a wild, energetic party, and I was exhausted by night’s end. What a wonderful, satisfying feeling. What a pleasure it was to meet these two amazing families. Mazel tov, Ava and Samantha! You make quite the team!! XOXO
