Benjamin’s Bar Mitzvah – Massachusetts Horticultural Society

Ben’s Bar Mitzvah was an absolute blast!  He is a truly great kid and a fantastic hockey player.  Both the service and the celebration were held at the Massachusetts Horticultural Society in the Gardens at Elm Bank.  The gardens were a gorgeous setting for family portraits.  And the inside was transformed into a hockey lover’s paradise!  Here are some of my favorite images from the day.


Spring was just beginning in the Gardens at Elm Bank.  It was a beautiful (if a bit windy) early spring day.  And Ben was a real trooper during the formal photos.  He has a great smile and a quiet, yet confident manor.

The service was held in a tent on the property.  Ben did a great job!  There is so much work that goes into preparing for your Bar Mitzvah.  And you could see just how much the Rabbi respected Ben’s hard work and enjoyed working with him.

The celebration space was totally over the top.  The room was decked in Ben’s Briuns-esq logo.  The specialty white dance floor was turned into a hockey rink.  And each kid had their own cubby to stash their things…just like you would at the rink!  I also loved the hockey puck place cards.

There was no shortage of fun things for guests.  The DJ’s played all sorts of games.  There was a specialty game room with air hockey and foosball.  And of course, plenty of dancing..


Of course, the kids weren’t the only ones having fun!  After a fabulous hora, it didn’t take long for the adults to take over the dance floor and show them how it was done.
