It was truly an honor and a privilege to plan and produce the second Mitzvah celebration for this amazing family!  There are just some times that you really click with a client and throughout the process you develop a friendship.  That was the case with this sweet family.  Three years ago I worked with this family on their daughters Bat Mitzvah and now the youngest of the family, Daniel is celebrating his Bar Mitzvah!

We selected the InterContinental Hotel as the venue, which was perfect because many of the family members live not only out of state, but out of the country.  The Hotel would be home away from home while the family came to celebrate this special time.

Let me just talk about family for a moment.  The love that this family has for each other, and actively shows, makes my heart smile.  The siblings are each others biggest supporters and the connection between them is something that you can feel whenever you are around them.  The entire family – immediate and extended – share a love that just makes you feel happy to see it expressed!

The photos below, compliments of the always fabulous, Kristen Alexander, will tell the story for me, but I want to provide just a few details.  

Instead of a full-on theme for the celebration, a color palette was selected.  The honoree’s favorite Soccer team is Barcelona, so their team colors of burgundy, blue and yellow were the basis of the decor. 

For the Kiddush luncheon, we went with a palette of black and white striped linens, paired with yellow and white flowers.  It was a very crisp and clean look.

For the evening party, we paired a contemporary design concept with organic touches for a truly unique and elevated look.  Bringing the concepts and design together was the creative genius of JWilbur of EventScapes.  

One of my favorite parts of a Mitzvah is the candle lighting ceremony.  Hearing the honoree honor their family and friends is touching and inspiring. 

For this party, if you had a sweet-tooth, then you would have been in heaven.  After a delicious dinner, guests were invited out to the garden terrace for mini cupcakes, fresh made hot doughnuts with a variety of toppings and an ice cream bar.  

And if those sweets weren’t enough, then how about a candy buffet featuring Daniel’s favorite treats.

Guests received a commemorative T-shirt as a lasting reminder of the special occasion. 

Now that all of the kid’s in the family have celebrated their Mitzvah’s, we look forward to continued celebrations like weddings, with this wonderful family in the future.

Holiday Nuptials for Katelyn & Ross

Posted in Weddings tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:00 am by JBEvents

Getting married around the Holiday’s is such a special time especially when you have family traveling in from all over to join in the joyous occasion.  Such was the case for Katelyn and Ross.  Their ceremony was held at Holy Spirit Catholic Church with reception to follow at the InterContinental Hotel.  We were fortunate to have a great vendor-team to pull this beautiful wedding off.  There were so many special touches including the Bride’s grandmothers prayer-book being incorporated into her bouquet, a solo by the brides brother before she walked down the aisle, custom linens, a surprise Pie Bar in lieu of a Groom’s Cake as well as a special treat for all guests in the form of a late-night shot of “Elk’s Milk” which is a family tradition from the Groom’s side and dates back for generations.  The drink is a concoction of Orange Sherbet and Vodka.  I must admit, it was quite tasty.  Everything created such a wonderful celebration for two very special people and their amazing parents!

Everything about this wedding was beautiful so I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.  Special thanks go out to Shannon Belletti for providing the majority of the images below in addition to some taken by JBEvents Staff.
