BAT MITZVAH - HELP!

We are planning a Bat Mitzvah for next year and need help.  If you have attended or planned a Mitzvah party, I would love recommendations for:

1) Possible venues in the East Bay

2) DJ recommendations (who specialize in Bat & Bar Mitzvahs)

3) Photographer

4) Videographer

5) If all else fails... a profession Event Planner (who specialize in Mitzvah events)

I highly recommend Barbara Butkus Photography (https://barbarabutkus.com). She photographed my daughter’s bat mitzvah ceremony and party. She was very respectful and unobtrusive during the ceremony and followed directions from the rabbi for where and when she could photograph. Her photos of the party were a wonderful blend of posed and candids. She has a great eye and outstanding technical skills.
