Sami’s Bat Mitzvah | Temple Sinai | Heinz History Center


Sami’s Opening Night was quite the affair! You see Sami is wild about performing. She sings, she dances, and she’s an actress. This beautiful young lady does it all!

Her perfect day began early in the morning with a few pre-service portraits at Temple Sinai. Her parents and grandparents all gathered to be apart of the photo session. When the service began, Sami’s beautiful voice took over. I tell you when Sami sang her haftarah it sounded as if a nightingale had flown into the sanctuary to serenade everyone. Never have I heard a young girl with such an amazing voice!

In the evening it was on to the Heinz History Center for Sami’s Opening Night! The party had a red carpet theme. Guests were greated at the door by the paparazzi. Swanky Hollywood cocktails (Shirley Temples) were available for the kids. Guests were also invited to enjoy the displays on the ground floor of the History Center. And you could even take a ride on the Racer roller coaster car from Kennywood. Sami and her parents enjoyed a ride!

After the cocktail hour guests were escorted upstairs to the main ball room. It was decorated in true red carpet fashion. Black, red, and silver splashed over the entire room. It felt as if you were walking into the Academy Awards. Well at least that’s what it felt like to me! Friends and family were entertained by the amazing musical stylings of Miss Kelli Burns. Sami and her friends sang and danced their socks off. And every time music from the Broadway play Hamilton was played, the crowd went nuts. And the boys from Nate Sherer Video were on hand to capture it all. It was a fabulous party to say the least!

Thank you Jennifer and Dave for choosing me to capture your beautiful daughter becoming a Bat Mitzvah. I loved being apart of her special day!
