Stefanie Diamond Photography located in Bergen County, New Jersey, recently sent us a Bat Mitzvah she photographed for a girl who loves Emojis.
This Bat Mitzvah girl speaks in Emojis 😍❤️ so picking her theme was easy! Hannah also wanted an intimate setting to share her special day with family and friends and found the perfect place, her backyard.
Friends and family all pitched in to set up, cook and bake for this special family.
Hannah's elegant layered organza gown was custom made by Zoe Ltd.
The entire family coordinated their party look perfectly by wearing shades of pink, purple and grey
Her footwear choice was NOT BASIC (the name of the sneakers) by Sam Edelman (http://www.mitzvahmarket.com/mitzvah-ideas/themes/hannahs-emoji-themed-bat-mitzvah/)

Food and Dessert
From Mom Nadine: “Hannah kept requesting my cooking: Can we have Greek salad? Salmon? Pizza? So I thought, why not?! When friends and family heard we were taking it on ourselves they insisted they contribute and the offers came pouring in! I could never have accomplished this on my own, I feel very lucky to know that we have friends that love our family so much.
