Jack’s tailgate-themed Bar Mitzvah celebration at B’nai Torah Congregation, planned by Linzi Events, was a perfect reflection of the young man so many family and friends came together to celebrate. His love of the University of Michigan football team was shown in every aspect of the party, from the decor from The Event Group to the favors from Designs by Chad and Jake . The Mitzvah was designed to recreate the excitement and energy of a packed football stadium, from the actual tailgate for the cocktail hour, to a tunnel entrance to the ballroom decked with bleachers, turf, and Michigan’s colors of maize and blue. DJ stations designed to look like broadcasting booths sat atop risers overlooking the ballroom-turned-stadium, where Dale McLean, announcer for the Miami Heat, was DJ and emcee. Goal posts featured video montages of Jack, clips from the University of Michigan and a personalized logo. Jack entered his stadium to cheers and the waving of pom poms, ushering the true start to the party filled with dancing and gourmet tailgating fare. Guests enjoyed dancers and entertainment, food passed by wait staff dressed as stadium vendors and video mapping that took the dance floor to the next level. Images by Neil Cohen Photography!
