I’ve been to and photographed my fair share of Bar/Bat Mitzvahs but it’s always fun to see how creative a family get’s while planning the mitzvah and the little special touches that make each Bar and Bat Mitzvahs different. There was certainly a lot of creative planning for Ian’s Bar Mitzvah at the Raleigh-Durham General Aviation Terminal, at RDU. It was a wonderful open space, with lots of natural light and very friendly staff. All the details of the Bar Mitzvah were carefully planned and helped to create a fun atmosphere… especially for the kids! Some other special touches the family put on their Bar Mitzvah was the cake (theme was traveling around the USA) and Ian is a hockey player so they turned a hockey stick into a candle holder for the candle lighting ceremony. Very cool details! Evan Pike Photography was also providing the green screen photo booth for the party! As you can tell by the photos, the kids were dancing and having a wonderful time all night. Of course I also had a wonderful time photographing the Bar Mitzvah and helping the family celebrate with my photography! Mazel Tov Ian!
