Stella's Bat Mitzvah // Bank Street Events [Stamford, CT]

The Frankel family is quite possibly the sweetest family in existence. Ronelle reached out to me about hiring me and the team about Stella's upcoming Bat Mitzvah. She booked us within a few hours haha. Then we met up a couple months later and really hit it off. I couldn't WAIT for the day to come. Everyone looked gorgeous, and I was finally able to see the inside of Bank Street Events in person. What a beautiful venue! Right in the heart of downtown Stamford, you totally forget where you are when you step inside.

We started off with some portraits before guests arrived.

The Frankels and their cousins have been posing like this for 3 years. Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahPortraits Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahPortraits How cute is this decor? The thing I love at Mitzvahs is the amount of thought and effort that goes into really personalizing the decor. It's amazing!

When we met, I suggest to the Frankels that Stella sing "The Climb" by Miley Cyrus. She ended up choosing that song, and she killed it! :) Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony Stella's Bat MitzvahStella's Bat MitzvahCeremony
