The Berman family from Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania, celebrated their daughter Natalie’s Bat Mitzvah on September 7, 2013.
The reception took place at Green Valley Country Club also in Lafayette Hill, Pennsylvania.
This party was sophisticated, fun and a perfect way for family and friends to celebrate “A Night With Natalie.”
Pictured L-R: Brother Evan, Bat Mitzvah girl Natalie, Dad Stuart, Mom Leslie and Sister Lindsey.
The photographer was Lafayette Hill Studios and the rest of the vendors are listed at the end of the spotlight.
The hot pink invitation suite was created by Two Paper Dolls.
This family has lots of style and looked picture perfect in their hot pink and black party clothes. Mom Leslie’s cocktail dress is from Gabrielle and Bat Mitzvah girl Natalie and sister Lindsey’s dresses are from G Lizzy. Brother Evan and Dad Stuart looked handsome in their suits from Boyds Philadelphia.
As guests arrived, they were greeted by a window cling which read, “A Night with Natalie.”

Party planner Stacey Kesselman provided the t-shirt favors and drawstring bags.
For her Mitzvah Project, Natalie walked in The National Kidney Foundation’s annual Philadelphia Kidney Walk. She asked friends and family to sponsor her for this walk and ended up raising over $7000! Natalie also volunteered her time as a greeter at the Philadelphia Kidney Ball in March of 2013 and hopes to do that annually.
Natalie created a bracelet honoring the National Kidney Foundation and gave them out at the reception to help raise awareness about kidney disease
Ready to walk for a great cause!
Some advice from Mom Leslie:
“It doesn’t hurt to start early so that you can feel somewhat relaxed towards the end! Staying organized is key and then as you get really close, sit back, relax and enjoy every minute…seriously!!!”
