Sydney's Bat Mitzvah - Temple Beth Shalom Needham + The Verve Natick
Miss Sydney has become a Bat Mitzvah ladies and gentleman. What an amazing day for all involved!!!
We started our morning at Temple Beth Shalom in Needham where Sydney's service was held. I had met the Oriel family before and have even photographed friends of theirs events, so I already knew they were a good time, and they were even more fun than I could have imagined. This little firecracker showed up with a broken leg, but not a broken spirit! She did not let that blinged out boot stop her from having the time of her life and It did not slow her down for a second on the dance floor. It is always so much fun to work with a kid who just loves to "turn it on", and that is Sydney all day long. She made sure to tell me when arriving that she "LOOOVEEES PICTURES"! Her siblings Alexa and Jake were the most adorable things ever and made sure to hop into as many pictures as possible.
The celebration for Miss Sydney and her amazing friends and family took place at The Verve in Natick. This is a fantastic venue with lots of character. It has a cool modern/retro lobby that makes for a good photo op. It also has a few cool spots such as an old school phone booth, some vintage barber chairs, and a few other hidden gems.
Johnny K from Pure Energy Entertainment and the rest of his team were on fire and kept the energy at peak level all night long. Lauren Loomis Brodie from Lauren Loomis Events delivered, as always, a fantastic room design. I would highly recommend both of these vendors for any event! The most important part of planning an event is creating the ultimate guest list...after that, a team that you trust to perform flawlessly so that you are able to sit back and be a guest at your own event!
