The DiPietra Bat Mitzvah Family Spotlight


The DiPietra family of New York City celebrated daughter Sarah’s Bat Mitzvah on November 15, 2014, at Temple Congregation Ansche Chesed in New York City and a reception at Elevate Event Lounge in Yorktown Heights, New York.

This New York City girl was looking for a fun party that was not in her hometown and she found the perfect spot!

Pictured L-R: Dad Lenny, Brother Ezra, Bat Mitzvah girl Sarah, Sister Yael and Mom Nicole.


The photography was from Double Image Event Productions and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the end of the spotlight.





The family worked with By Invitation Only Designs on the invitation.

Since the Bat Mitzvah girl wanted a party outside of her hometown of New York City, Elevate Event Lounge was selected as it was a short bus ride to Westchester County. Marie Eliseo, the event coordinator, helped Mom Nicole with every detail.

 Some advice from Mom Nicole:
“Start early! Get your venue booked; get your DJ, photographer and other vendors. Work closely with your planner, and listen to what your child wants to do. The staff at Elevate and Double Image Event were very accommodating and helped us every step of the way. We called one day inquiring where to get a good sign-in board made and he asked what we were looking for and told us to send him the photo and he would just take care of it. Also we asked him if we could add more activities for the kids to do, he gave us a few ideas and we chose a few that Sarah wanted and all were enjoyed by our guests!”
