When we met Lexi, our Bat Mitzvah Guest of Honor (GOH), she had a specific vision in mind for her special day. This spunky teen knew exactly what she wanted from the dress she designed herself all the way to her custom shoes and everything in between.
We knew it had to be elegant and chic, but she also wanted a little touch L.A. From the Santa Monica Pier to the glam red carpet and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, we needed to incorporate all these great elements into the design.
We went over to Galaxy Productions to discuss our thoughts and those of our GOH. Of course, video mapping was an option to reflect great images of the California landmarks, but we opted for using new massive state-of-the-art LED panels which were positioned perfectly in our teen lounge area to showcase the best west coast shots. Stanchions and custom pillows then made the space ideal for any VIP.
Our color palette was hot pink, silver, and white, so we chose white tables and topped them with gorgeous centerpieces filled with hot pink cotton candy roses and white hydrangeas. We then draped the Kol Tikvah ballroom in white and wrapped the dance floor with a custom logo. Just Bars signature silver wave bar was added to compliment and complete the look.
The synagogue lobby was transformed into a red-carpet movie premier straight out of Hollywood. Our family members were each honored by their own stars inspired by the world’s most famous sidewalk. Giant silver laser cut letters with our GOH’s name stood up against a hedge wall where guests had a photo op with the paparazzi. Lastly, facades from famous locations such as “In-N-Out Burger” and “NOBU” were displayed above VIP Caterers’ insane menu of party favorites during the cocktail hour.
Once inside, Pure Energy Entertainment took the stage. Emcee Marcelo and his dancers captured the energy on the dance floor while Aaron and Juan from VMA Studios, and Jason from JC Video Productions captured all the star-studded moments and memories. Christine Newburg was sure to capture all the expressions in her hand drawn caricatures. VIP Caterers, of course, captured every taste bud with a selection of four entrees before their signature dessert parade.
Upon exiting, all guests were treated to more desserts, a candy bar, specialty grilled cheese sandwiches and truffle fries, and more SWAG.
Partying like a Rock Star always make a STYLED event!
Mazel Tov again to Lexi and her family!
