Mitzvah Inspire: Black and White Ball Theme

Danto Photography located in Los Angeles, California, recently shot a Bat Mitzvah in Michigan that we couldn’t wait to share.

The venue was the Lafayette Grande Banquet Facility in Pontiac, Michigan, which embodied the party’s theme, Izzy’s Black and White Ball. Guests were asked to dress in black and white.

Bat Mitzvah girl Izzy created her own version of a Bat Mitzvah ceremony having all the women in her extended family join her in the Havdalah service, one of many special moments.
