I only get to cover mitzvahs about once every couple of years, but it’s always a big production and loads of fun, and Sharla’s bat mitzvah celebration at the Marriott North may have topped them all. I got to know her family more than most due to my extensive work on her photo & video presentation with her mother Idrienne, and the video was a big hit. But it was only the beginning. In addition to the traditional moments, the “Masquerade Ball”-themed party also included a quick ballroom dancing lesson, Sharla’s sister doing a surprise “Wizard of Oz” bit, Bubbles & Pickles the clowns getting the party revved up, lots of masks and “Phantom of the Opera” music, great food by Great Cooks & Company and nonstop dancing courtesy of DJ Tim Fuller. It was fun to work with photographer Sue Huffer again, and big thanks to the Marriott’s Robyn Sweet for the referral. Congratulations, Sharla!
