Stephen S. Wise Temple + Luxe Bat Mitzvah Photography
You can take the New Yorker out of New York, but you can't… well, you know the saying! Even 3,000 miles away from the City That Never Sleeps, Julie and Brian made sure their eldest daughter Amanda celebrated her Bat Mitzvah with all the cosmopolitan flair of a Big Apple soirée. After the service at Stephen S. Wise Temple, family and friends made their way to the Luxe Hotel on Sunset Boulevard, where Cindy Hassle of SRO Events transformed the venue into a scene straight out of Carrie Bradshaw's wildest fantasies! The theme, “Amanda in the City," was expertly woven into every aspect of the evening: Crystal chandeliers and magnificent sparkling vases were the dazzling centerpieces to the pink, black, and white accented tables and the walls were covered in bright lights in the shapes of some of NYC's most recognizable landmarks. But the real treat was the 12 foot high Virtual Backdrop provided by Spotlight LA. It spanned the entire wall behind the stage and featured a custom NYC themed video from and custom décor artwork (courtesy of yours truly)! Even the candle lighting ceremony possessed the essence of big city drama as Amanda and her sisters, Edina and Scarlet, made their way around the room to “share the light" with her family and friends. By the time they were finished, the warm glow of nearly 100 candles were reflected in the eyes of all, and none shone more brightly than Amanda's extremely proud parents.
