Besides the fact that I had the hardest time wrapping my head around this whole day, it was totally wonderful! The reason? Ivy (lexi’s mom) is my oldest friend since we were 8 years old. We were at eachothers Bat Mitzvahs about 100 years ago, went to camp together for 6 years, a teen tour across america together, were roommates for a year in Long Beach, in eachothers wedding parties, had babies a year apart, all those milestones and memories. And her daughter getting Bat Mitzvah’d was almost too much to comprehend! But she did, and Ivy asked me to take photos which I was more than happy to do. Get comfy, it’s a lot of pictures!
The Bat Mitzvah girl herself. Didn’t she look lovely?
Just to clarify, Ivy & Jon have been divorced for a few years now but everyone really got along great on Lexi’s special day. Lexi’s theme was candy. Temple Avodah in Oceanside. They don’t allow photography during the ceremony so I came before to take a few photos and then met them at the party. Lexi’s step-family. I’m sure (if you are a blog stalker) that you’ll remember Ivy & Steve’s wedding.
A quick shout out to Warehouse 5 in Barnum Island for an amazing venue and party! I highly recommend them for your next event.
