When I met with Bri’s parents to help plan her Bat Mitzvah, I was ecstatic to meet a family with a knack for coordination. Throughout the process, it was evident the love and pride they felt for their daughter and it certainly showed on the night of her ceremony and reception.
Bri’s Bat Mitzvah theme was “Broadway Bound” and with that came decadent Broadway-themed centerpieces with Playbills as tables numbers and VIP pass escort cards for guests to wear. The night began with cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while guests awaited the arrival of the guest-of-honor, who had no idea what to expect upon arrival. Unbeknownst to Bri, her parents had planned for her to be the celebrity of the night, so when she arrived she was shocked as she was greeted with a red carpet, adoring fans and paparazzi flashes. Afterward guests were ushered into the theater where Bri and her parents were announced on stage in true celebrity fashion. The guests watched a video prepared by Bri’s father and the candle lighting ceremony began immediately after, with Bri’s closest family and friends joining her on stage to light each of her 13 candles. Guests enjoyed dinner, dancing and a photo booth for the rest of the night and to top it all off: an ice cream sundae buffet! It was truly a memorable event captured by the talented Tod Margolis.
I was not a part of the coordination for her ceremony earlier that day but wanted to include the pictures to show you what a wonderful family with whom I had the pleasure of working.
A special thank you to the following vendors that helped make this event a success…
