I couldn’t be more honored and grateful to have documented this absolutely amazing Bar Mitzvah story about David and his incredible family! Choosing a destination Bar Mitzvah celebration at The Cove at The Atlantis resort in the Bahamas was a unique and super special opportunity for their friends and family to celebrate life in all it’s glory.
David read from the Torah with help from Joel Cohen and Rebecca Keren at Door to Door Tutoring. Then, after a beautiful service and luncheon at the iconic New York Union Club, it was wheels up and sunshine and shark tanks at the one and only Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.
Cataclysmic late afternoon lighting storms didn’t stop David from rockin’ his portrait session where we captured him in the resort’s breath-taking surroundings.
The nightclub CRUSH was just about the most insanely awesome party space one could imagine. The game room blew away every possible concept of what a 13 year old could enjoy – a full-blown video column with dozens of lcd panels projected video games controlled by Captain-Kirk-esque command chairs straight out of the USS Enterprise.
The weekend culminated in a massive dance party of epic proportions at CRUSH nightclub – DJ’d by Hector Velasquez and MC’d by Dave Waterman of Total Entertainment. The Total Entertainment team went above and beyond and served double-duty as counselors by day and dancers by night. Though the real VIP trophy goes to David and his family who showed us what it means to celebrate one of life’s great milestones.
Allison Gage and Lani Frenchman and their amazing team at Plan Great Events produced the event to pull off a herculean achievement in event coordination. What an amazing weekend. Thank you Lance, Diane, Daniel and David for a truly unforgettable weekend. Mazel Tov!!!
