Equestrian Bat Mitzvah | Cleveland, Ohio

In Cleveland, I have photographed Mitzvahs with many unique themes. Amanda’s Equestrian-themed Bat Mitzvah celebration was something special.

Before her service, Amanda started her day with a portrait session at Temple Emanu El. Her smile and laugh was infectious. The service was lovely with a heart-felt speech from Amanda and special words from Mom and Dad. I love when I have the opportunity to photograph those moments!

The evening celebration was held at the Bertram Inn in Aurora. The ballroom sparkled with teal and purple decor. With Amanda’s love for horses in mind, the space had fabulous equestrian details designed by Whimzey Events . Horseshoe table cards greeted the guests at the entrance along with a special portrait of Amanda and her horse, Breezy. The kids’ tables had glittery horse and rider centerpieces while the adult tables had the adorable custom logo: Amanda’s Mane Event.

The party was filled with fun for the everyone. Rock the House rock it( of course!) with music, dancing and fun games for the kids. The photo booth was non-stop all with laughter especially with the addition of the equestrian-themed props. Particularly memorable, all the guests joined Amanda and her parents on the dance floor for the hora.

Amanda had a truly joyful celebration!
