Michelle Farber and her amazing team at M. Studio Events are well-known for their creative parties and event branding. Recently they planned and executed an unforgettable Great Gatsby themed Bat Mitzvah for the Yormack family at Oheka Castle in West Hills, New York. This sophisticated celebration evoked the splendor of the roaring twenties, but still kept it modern and chic. Michelle used the Bat Mitzvah girl’s initials of “S.B.Y.” and created The Great @SBY.
The photographer was the Ira Rosen Studio.
