The One with the Parisian Bat Mitzvah

Saturday night I worked at a Parisian-themed bat mitzvah!

So this photo has a funny story...

I was attempting to get a picture of the LA skyline like I like to do when I drive by it on my way to these parties and the second I lifted up my new ginormous camera a police-man flew by on his motorcycle. But the funny/not so funny thing was he was LOOKING RIGHT AT ME AND SMILING FROM EAR TO EAR! My heart dropped into my stomach and I thought for sure I was going to be pulled over for reckless driving or something. But I didn't. Thanking my lucky stars.

I got to the event in Beverly Hills and set up all my stuff.

40 pages prepped and ready to go - just pass me the pictures, glue, and Thickers!

The guests weren't scheduled to arrive for another hour or so, so I walked around and admired the decor.

Whoa. Just, whoa.

The dance floor.

The taboo candy bar.

For lounging.

Here is the hallway with all the vendors.

Sumo suits!

There were four different photography booths. This one took pics and turned them into magazine covers or Andy Warhol style images.

I used the ladies room before the event started and loved that they had free gum/breath mints at the exit. How generous :)

Swanky.

Cindy was working with the photo vendor that printed my photos so we took a few "test" shots:

A few hours later, the bat mitzvah girl had an album documenting the night! (Name blurred on purpose).

Best story of the night - I met a celebrity (Marcia Cross), but since I don't watch the show she stars in (Desperate Housewives) I didn't even know it until after the fact! She came over to the table I was scrapping at and I asked if she wanted to write a note for the girls' scrapbook and she did and we just chit chatted about who knows what. I wonder if she thought my nonchalantness was rude? I hope not! I'm just ignorant! Thanks Cindy for pointing out that I met a celebrity - now I just need to get wit' it!
