The Udine Family celebrated David and Matthew’s B’nai Mitzvah on February 19, 2011 at Congregation Kol Tikvah in Parkland, Florida. The reception was held at the Boca Raton Resort and Club later that evening.
We are excited to share their ideas with our Mitzvah Market readers.
All photography was done by Domino Arts Photography.
The rest of the vendor information is at the bottom of the spotlight.

Below you can get a better look at Mom Stacey’s beautiful hunter green and navy beaded gown that had a low back from Zola Keller and Lexi’s iridescent purple gown from Mona’s Kids Clothing. The guys of the family look great in their matching purple velvet jackets dressed by Jonathan Reed in Coral Springs!

Not only can you read about the Udine’s celebration, but you can watch this video teaser about their event.
The theme was the “Luxe Life” and with the help of South Miami Event planner Sara Renee Lowell, Mom Stacey created a great club theme with cool white modern lounge furniture and draping.
Lucite chiavari chairs and linens called, Holy Moly created this elegant look
The beautiful white draping sectioned off different areas with white spandex on tables and chairs
The silver and black pillows in the lounge area added pop
We love this black and white dance floor
The centerpieces were lucite rods illuminated with LED lights that sat on a square mirror with additional vases and votive candles
A jumbotron was used to show the montage and the candle lighting videos. Instead of a traditional candle lighting ceremony, friends and family were asked to send their video production company a 30 second to 1 minute message for the boys which was edited and played for all the guests to see!
Matthew and David are not too big to be held by their mom
There was lots of dancing at this party for guests of all ages. The entertainers were the Hot Jam Dancers and Samba Dancers. This family really knows how to move!

No that is not one of the dancers that’s Mitzvah Mom Stacey…you go girl!

Here is another alternative to a Mitzvah cake. The family poses with their candle lighting display.
Ready for some dessert? The dessert bar was complete with Stone Cold ice cream mixing stations as well as a full candy bar for the adults and kids.
The boys’ Mitzvah Project was In Jacobs Shoes. It is an organization whose mission is to provide new and gently used shoes, school supplies and athletic equipment to economically disadvantaged youth. It was formed in loving memory of Jacob’s family, who are well respected members of the Udine’s community and temple.
Here is some advice from Mitzvah Mom Stacey:
“I survived the planning by taking one step at a time. I didn’t focus on the entire event. I took baby steps and it really worked. I kept the kids and my husband totally involved and it worked!”
