I Love the Wedding Planner

5th March

Just watched one of my favourite movies of all time, “The Wedding Planner.” It’s funny because clients always ask me is my job really like Jennifer Lopez’s (Mary) in the movie. Recently, I had an experience with a client that really made me feel like it was. Does anyone remember the scene in the movie where Mary reassures Fran that Steve is her true love and that she needs to go ahead with the wedding? I had a bar mitzvah client, who called me the night before her son’s bar mitzvah and she began to panic and starting second guessing all of the decisions that she had made and started to ask so many what if questions, what if the guests leave to early? what if my make up appointment runs to late?

Kline Bar Mitzvah Part II

20th January

Wow! What an amazing party, thanks to The Thompson Hotel, Justin and the Magen Boys, DMS, Eclipse, Mysterion, Decor and More, Joel Nadel and Tiny Tim Donuts for helping to make Jack’s Bar Mitzvah a huge success.

Some highlights from last night’s Bar Mitzvah; Mysterion entertained the kids downstairs with a live mentalist/hypnotist show, while the adults enjoyed the stunning views of Toronto’s skyline from the Rooftop at The Thompson Hotel. Do you remember as a child how much you loved to pop bubble wrap, can you imagine a dance floor that is filled with bubble wrap and the kids stomping all over it? We did it last night, so much fun! Not to mention the tribute video where the Bar Mitzvah boy Jack pre-recorded and sang “Man in the Mirror” while the guests enjoyed his life in pictures.

My Son’s Bar Mitzvah

20th November

My son’s bar mitzvah luncheon, I loved everything about it!! His theme was trees, as his mitzvah project was donating trees to Camp Ramah in Canada. We used apples and branches as the decor and we did a flower placing ceremony in lieu of a candlelighting. We asked guests of honour to rise and place a flower on the branches of the centrepieces. At the end Maxwell asked a representative from each table to place a flower, it was so beautiful and inclusive so that everyone felt special.
