Recently, we had the pleasure of photographing a wonderful Boston Bar Mitzvah celebration. The weekend started with photos of Ben and his family at Temple Beth Sholom in Framingham, Massachusetts. After some family groupings on Bimah we got to take few casual shots with Ben while he ran through the rehearsal for his big day.

The next night it was off to the Hotel Marlowe in Cambridge for the reception where we captured Ben, his family and friends celebrating after a job well done. Guests were entertained by Kupah James of Klass Univeral Entertainment in this Basketball themed event that was designed by the ladies at SD Events of Newton, MA.

Mazel Tov to Ben and his family (including Ben’s mom – Mara Weiner – Owner of Allure Invitations) and thank you for having Person + Killian Photography be there to capture your weekend!

Sam’s Bar Mitzvah celebration started off the Wednesday with some family portraits at Temple Emanuel in Newton. On Saturday after the service, guests were taken on trolleys to Pine Brook Country Club in nearby Weston, MA.

For the kids, it was a rock and roll themed party filled with everything from an airbrush tattoo station to late night ice cream bar and even a dance floor with Sam’s name designed into it. Colors of black and red were interspersed throughout the decor, and electric guitars were seen everywhere from the sign in board to the top of the cake! The adults enjoyed cocktail hour in the Living Room followed by dinner in the Grill Room where they were entertained by a live jazz band for the remainder of the evening.

Mazel Tov to Sam and his wonderful family for trusting in Person + Killian Photography to capture these special events. Also, a big thank you to Hopple Popple for sending this great family our way and for creating such a fantastic event!

Event lighting and entertainment all coordinated by Hopple Popple.

Earlier this month, Person + Killian Photography had the pleasure of photographing both the morning and evening events of Nadav’s Bar Mitzvah celebration at The Charles Hotel. The day started with some family formal photos at Temple Shalom of Newton where we got a sneak peak of the days Kidush luncheon.

Later that evening it was off to The Charles Hotel in Cambridge where the ballroom was illuminated with blue and green intergalactic lighting that included fiber optic centerpieces and a wall that changed colors throughout the party. Guests were treated to a multitude of fun activities that included a 16 foot candy bar, popcorn station, photo and video booths and non-stop dancing from the awesome crew at Northern Lights Entertainment. Colorful necklaces, hats, boas, and sunglasses were passed out to all the guests for some fun, goofy pictures of this great celebration!

All of the days events were planned and designed by the fabulous team at Hopple Popple. Mazel Tov Nadav! It was a fantastic day and we were thrilled to capture it for you and your wonderful family.
