Zach’s Bar Mitzvah At Ultimate GaGa

Zach’s Bar Mitzvah At Ultimate GaGa


Zach celebrated his Bar Mitzvah service and party on January 7, 2012 at Ultimate GaGa in Syosset, New York.

Although this family had previously celebrated their daughter’s Bat Mitzvah with a black tie affair, for Zach they wanted something completely different that would match his personality.

They went with a very laid back affair with casual attire. Zach told his friends to wear their “coolest kicks” and all the kids showed up in sneakers!

Simon Elliot Events was the photographer and the rest of the vendor information is listed at the bottom of the spotlight.

Some advice from two-time Mitzvah Mom Dana:
“This was my second affair. Two years ago my daughter wanted a black tie extravaganza for which she could dress like a princess. We did that and really focused on what she wanted. We had photos of her all over the room, a runway to go with her fashion theme and bright pink sweatshirts. This time around Zach wanted a completely casual affair. We totally switched gears and went that route. As much as I would have liked to have worn another gown, I remembered that this event was for him. I wore my jeans! Keep your child in mind at all times when planning. I know both kids will never forget their special day.”
