Since the Kentucky Derby is tomorrow, it only seems appropriate to share this riding themed bat mitzvah! I’d like to say I planned that out months in advance, but we’ll just go with it’s fate ;) Margot’s day was so wonderful to be a part of – she is a very accomplished young woman with a huge passion for horses. Simcha’s Events pulled out all the stops to make this day one to remember!
I got a few of these silly faces throughout the day :)
So many hugs and smiles throughout the day – one of our favorite things to capture around here!
I know everyone probably gets nervous standing up there in front of the congregation, but Margot never let it get to her. And she has a beautiful singing voice to beat!
My favorite part of the service here:
Finished! Heading over to the kiddush setup…
…and some more hugs to congratulate our girl!
I was super excited about shooting the evening portion of this one – I finally got to shoot at the new Wild Carrot event space! Love the vibe they have going there.
The horse doodle contest was such a unique touch and fun activity!
Here comes all the miniature horses for the tables ;)
Yes, this is a bull-riding setup you’re seeing. Everyone, teens and adults, had a good time with this later on!
A few tasty snacks from 23 City Blocks catering!
Time for some dance competitions.
Some very impressive moves!
And let’s officially welcome in the mitzvah! Just a little shy :)
So to get this group photo, I had to climb up in the custom dj booth…totally worth it but I was way up high, and heights make me just a little nervous ha!
Mom even got in on the action, even though ahead of time she swore she wouldn’t…love it!
Judge Margot picking the winners of the contest…
The airbrush sweatshirts were such an awesome favor :)
Thank you so much to the whole Epstein family for having me a as a part of your day…it was perfect! – Meredith
