Carlyle Catering
The Erica Levy Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight

Erica Levy and her family from Marlboro, New Jersey celebrated her Bat Mitzvah service and reception on June 18, 2011 at Courtyard on Main in Freehold, New Jersey.

Erica wanted a pink and green color palette and a candy theme and she got it both along with a great tag line, “AmErica Runs On Candy!”

All photography was done by Picture Us Perfect and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom of the spotlight.

Here’s some advice from Mom Lori:

“I didn’t let anything stress me out, because in the end everything always gets done. I also let others with more experience help me with things that they knew better. We knew someone who was good at the candle lighting poems and she helped Erica write hers.”
