It’s Chat and Tell Time!
Here’s what parents Lou and Kelli had to say about Skyler’s Bat Mitzvah Celebration!
Little did I know that when I DJ’d Shaun Sperling’s Bar Mitzvah on 3-14-92, that I’d meet and fall in love with his older sister Kelli, and almost 26 years later, our youngest daughter would be celebrating her Bat Mitzvah! So we’d like to reflect on the team we assembled, to turn our vision into reality.
Of course we knew that our Personalities Inc family would be up ready to rock out Skyler’s party, just like they did for our older daughter Mackenzi. This time around we chose the Highland Park Community House to host the party, and Lance Gustafson and his crew to transform this historic building into a beautiful modern lounge. Gold was our accent color, and Freelance Studios created signage, brought in couches, and added the perfect accents to personalize the space. Completing the look involved getting stunning table coverings from Windy City Linen, LED illuminated Hi-Boys & Bars from Larry Neiman, and having Jerry Carlson and his staff managing the flow of everything from setup through strike.
Being a “Big Kid” myself, we went with 4 hours of dessert, and 2.5 hours of heavy passed appetizers. So THANK YOU to Josh Kaplan & Gail Fradin of Josh’s On The Square for the DELICIOUS FOOD all night, to Mitch Dicker for the Cotton candy machine, and Bill Feldgreber & Maria Feldgreber for the yummy BLIZZARDS!
Aliza Sperling & GQ Promotions, Inc. were brought on board for our hoodies right after we worked together at the Viper Alley Showcase. She’s great, and knows how to get the job done right! Stefanie Penner designed our invites, and everything printed. Priscilla Celeste did the girls hair, and Alexa Michalek did their makeup. Jeff Goldstein and his Xpress Video Productions crew captured both Mitzvahs for us, and also produced amazing concept videos for us as well! And we’re able to share our vision with you thanks to our friend and photographer, Tell Draper. We couldn’t have asked for more. #Thankful #blessed
xoxo Lou & Kelli Loiben
