This was my second time working with Jeff and Marcy, the first being the Bar Mitzvah of their son Daniel, and this one, the Bat Mitzvah of their daughter Leah. It is no coincidence that both events were held at Kat Man Du in Trenton, New Jersey, as the venue is unique, fun, and offers a beautiful view of the Delaware river (besides doing a stellar job).
As was before, Marcy and Jeff were a pleasure to work with, and Leah was a pure delight. She was an up-beat kid who not only had some great ideas when it came to planning the Bat Mitzvah, but came ready to party (and so did her friends!) Leah’s friends were fun, danced non-stop, and participated in every game and activity with super-enthusiasm. The adults were all about it as well, and were dancing almost as much as the kids (although, as adults do, they stopped to eat and drink every so often). DJ Adam and Cameron did a great job keeping the music pumping, while the kids climbed on the stage doing line dances and dance routines and just bursting with energy. Our dancers Stephanie and Nate did an awesome job of keeping everyone involved, coordinating with the DJ, and making sure even the little kids got lots of the party giveaways.
It was also great working with photographer Mike Schwartz, and Michael – head honcho over at Kat Man Du – who is the utmost professional and runs a tight operation. Kat Man Du is an operating nightclub that offers it’s venue for afternoon affairs before club hours start. I think kids really like it’s fun atmosphere, which makes it a great venue for Bat Mitzvahs, Bar Mitzvahs and Sweet 16 parties alike. Thanks to Michael and your amazing team at Kat Man Du.
Last but certainly not least, thanks to Jeff and Marcy for being so much fun to work with, and really helping us to make this Bat Mitzvah a success.
And, of course, Mazel Tov to Leah. You and your friends rock!
