I recently traveled to the eastern side of Massachusetts to photograph Marlee’s Bat Mitzvah celebration, first at Temple Sinai in Sharon and later at the Thorny Lea Golf Club in Brockton for a rockin’ party. Here are some photos from the day…
Everyone most certainly had directions to the reception, the bus led a convoy of sorts away from the temple.
Just inside the golf club’s entryway was a wooden chair that guests could sign instead of a guestbook. (I thought that was a pretty cool idea.)
The DJs handed out differently colored socks for the kids to wear to make dancing and sliding around the floor easier.
While I’m sure Marlee’s grandfather was enjoying the party, I caught him wistfully watching the golfers.
Marlee and her parents came out into the lobby briefly and I caught this shot through the slats of the chair her friends and family signed.
Each guest was handed a smooth stone to be placed into this bowl as an alternative to a candlelighting ceremony.
It was also Marlee’s grandfather’s birthday, who was surprised with his own little cake (which he really enjoyed).
Marlee hung out with her friends and played with some of the many balloons on the steps of the golf club after the main festivities were over.
