Mitzvah Monday is back and today, I'm giving Jacob a hearty MAZEL TOV!
I love shooting at synagogues from St. Paul to Minneapolis and everywhere in between because the architecture, the lighting and the vibes are all so different, yet feel the same ... and this time, I got to venture to Mount Zion in St. Paul to celebrate with Jacob and his family!
The oldest of four kids, Jacob handled the morning with a mature grace, taking his younger siblings under his wing at various times. It was so great to see and I loved working with his family to create some traditional yet fun portraits.
For the party on Saturday night, the celebration continued at the Great Hall in downtown St. Paul - a venue that turned a great space into a "light up the night" theme - all the glow in the dark touches that Jacob's mom Melissa put together were so fun! Level11 kept the party moving and the best part? Kids danced and received raffle tickets for the best moves ... at the end of the night, all raffle tickets were put into a giant box and the winner went home with a hoverboard! INSANITY INSUED! So crazy and fun!
Mazel Tov to Jacob and his family for such a beautiful event - I can't wait to work with you all again soon! XO!
