Rachel’s Bat Mitzvah last weekend was a blast!
Here’s a sampling of some of my favorite photos:
the day began bright and early with some family portraits at temple Emanu-El in Oak Park.
could this family be any cuter? 😉
the evening party was held at Hotel Baronette. They decorated the ballroom with life-size renditions of many popular magazines – re-imagined, of course, starring the bat mitzvah girl! Such a fun, creative theme!
now – get ready to be IMPRESSED! this is artwork by Rachel that was displayed around the foyer. LOVE these! I would totally hang them in my house. And she is only 13! amazing.
a few more shots of Rachel….
and we can’t forget her adorable sisters!
here’s dad giving a speech…
quite possible my new all-time favorite hora shot. ever.
someone certainly enjoyed all the glowing goodies handed out by the always fabulous Star Trax MCs 😉
Congratulations Rachel! And congrats to mom and dad for raising such a lovely and accomplished young lady!
Those paintings are superb!! What a talented girl- and what an awesome party!!
