Back in 2011, we had the pleasure of photographing Colin’s Bar Mitzvah in Rockville. Colin is Nathaniel’s older brother, and we had a blast! About a year later, in 2012–a full three years early–we were hired to cover Nathaniel’s celebration. What a vote of confidence!

The big day finally came on May 2nd of this year, at the VisArts Center in Rockville. The event would take place in the the ballroom with two huge open glass windowed walls. The room was decorated with Nathaniel’s sports sensibilities, and places he has visited in his lifetime. Have you ever woken up with a sugar hangover? Well–There.. was.. candy.. everywhere!

The kids were entertained all night by the always amazing Unique Dreams Entertainment. The food, which was delicious, was supplied by Spilled Milk Catering, while Five 0 Air created custom airbrush t-shirts for everyone who asked (no, we didn’t get one; we were a little busy!), Capital DC Photos ran an exciting green-screen photobooth which was a big hit. And, working alongside us all evening was the film crew for Adora Creative, who makes some of the most amazing event and corporate films you could ask for!

At the end of the day, the event was a big success! We love Bar Mitzvah celebrations, check out the highlights below:
