Garrett’s Really Rockin' Bar Mitzvah Bash

Posted on June 24, 2008

As far South Florida Mitzvahs go, this was one of the grandest affairs I have ever had the pleasure of photographing! It all began with Garrett’s pre-shoot at his family’s home, where we captured some great shots of him playing soccer, basketball as well as some nice portraits. The theme of his Bar Mitzvah was “blue”, so everything was adjusted to have a blue cast or some sort of blue in each photo. Check out the first 3 photos below to see the "blue."

Garrett’s ceremony on the morning of 6/7/08 was at Temple Beth El in Boca Raton, but the main event was later that day at the site of the Old School Square in Delray Beach where an enormous 8,000 square foot tent was erected to house the party for the several hundred lucky guests invited to attend. All the guests wore white, except Garrett’s mom, who shimmered in a glamorous off the shoulder gown.

The décor was ultra-modern, all white with cool blue lighting that gave everything inside the tent a blue glow. A sumptuous buffet with several different stations, an ice-cream cart, and a delectable candy table kept the guests satiated all evening long. Linzi Etzion, mitzvah planner extraordinaire, masterfully coordinated all aspects of the event. As always, Linzi was a delight to work with and did an incredible job pulling everything together for this ultra-elaborate party.

A highlight of the evening was when the popular dance troop “Live in Color” took center stage and performed a number featuring Garrett! All the kids, as well as the adults, were thrilled with this performance!

All in all, this was an amazingly artsy and creative and totally fun South Florida Bar Mitzvah that I was privileged to have the opportunity to photograph along with my second photographer on the job, Albert. We both had a great time and thank Linzi Etzion and the Schwartz’s for the opportunity to be a part of such a terrific event.

Fun, fun, fun!


Let's not forget the sweets!
