A photo session in the sanctuary with the unique stained glass dome at Temple Emanu-El in Closter, New Jersey set the stage for Peri’s Bat Mitzvah weekend. Peri, her mom Lorin, dad John and siblings Jacob, Mara and Sam all gathered for a photo shoot with Sarah Merians before Peri’s candy-themed Mitzvah celebration at the Pearl River Hilton.
A custom-built neon colored bar, created and designed by Diana Gould, Ltd., was the focal point of the ballroom with our photos of Peri framing a wall of multi-colored candies. Candy lollipops served as escort cards with each guests’ table number displayed on the wrapper! And when it was time for the candle lighting and honoring all the people in Peri’s life, she lit floating candles sitting on top of glass tubes filled with-you guessed it-candy! Total Entertainment kept the party moving on the dance floor and Gerry Burns and the staff at the Pearl River Hilton made the Mitzvah celebration a night to remember. Mazel Tov, Peri!
