Today’s post is a really special one. This past December we had the honor of celebrating sweet Lauren’s coming of age with her family and friends at her bat mitzvah. Lauren is an incredibly impressive young woman and took the responsibility of preparing for her ceremony very seriously. She was well read, well spoken and beautifully confident. Her Rabbi shared about what an amazing student she was and how seriously she took her lessons. It was clear that Lauren was proud of her heritage, and was thoughtful and confident in the meaning and purpose behind this event. It was an honor to share this with her and her family!
Lauren and her mother, Kim, with the help of Unforgettable Events, created a “winter wonderland” theme for the party on the evening following her ceremony. Snowflakes and icicles and flowing white fabric from floor to ceiling created an exquisite room that Kim and Lauren were shocked to see when they first walked in. After spending a year planning this special party, both Lauren and Kim were thrilled to see the vision come together perfectly. Kim was so proud, and Lauren was so excited to share this night with her greatest friends.
Lauren blew everyone away with her confidence and creativity while presenting her candle lighting ceremony. For each year of her life, Lauren asked a very significant person to come light a candle with her. She shared of her love and admiration for these people and how they’ve impacted her life. This young lady, I will declare here and now, will be a leader and a speaker one day. As a 12 year old young lady, she spoke with absolute assurance and poise and had the entire room clapping and laughing along with her.
I (Kristin) feel like Lauren’s mom Kim is now more than a client, but a friend. I was able to help her design Lauren’s invitations and day of stationery which made it possible for me to be a part of the excitement and designing and planning for the event. She allowed us to be more than just their photographers but actually invited us as guests. This is an amazing group of people and Paul and I grateful to know them!
Lauren’s album is being printed right now and we can’t wait to share that with her and her family. It will be an exquisite book to show off this exquisite young lady and this beautiful night!
