Person + Killian was thrilled to be able to photograph a destination Bar Mitzvah with Rafanelli Events in gorgeous Palm Beach, Florida!

The Bar Mitzvah took place at The Mar-a-Lago Club and was transformed into “Club Cole at Hotel CK” for the event. We had some time with the family to utilize the beautiful property for some formal photographs before heading into the Gold and White Ballroom for the traditional Havdala service.

Cocktail hour was held at the Poolside Casino and included motivators who took on the rolls of security guards, a pit boss lifeguard and shot girls who interacted with the crowd. An iPad sign-in-board was set up next to the Paparazzi photo shoot where guests could take home the photos at the end of the night.

Following the cocktail reception, guests were welcomed into the main ballroom “Club Cole”. The reception kicked off with the Hora, followed by a night of dancing and celebration. Before the night ended, the guests were treated to the surprise headliner of the night – a concert by Sean Kingston. After the concert, Cole and his family had a chance to spend some time with Sean Kingston and Donald Trump (owner of the Mar-a-Lago) for some one on one time and some photographs.

We would like to send a special thanks to Cole and his family for being so wonderful and to the team at Rafanelli Events for this great opportunity to photograph this gorgeous event!
