In 2009, at age 12, Leah Slepian had already visited Israel with her family and completed her Bat Mitzvah ceremony there. While it was an amazing trip, and she had worked hard to meet the challenges it entailed a year earlier than is customary in the U.S., there was one thing she missed out on: celebrating that accomplishment with all of her friends and relatives. On May 22, 2010, shortly after her 13th birthday, that situation was rectified. With the help of planner Sharon Fisher of It’s My Party, Inc., Leah’s parents threw their daughter a fantastic “Club Leah” themed Bat Mitzvah/birthday celebration unlike anything Atlanta had seen before! They selected one of the city’s newer venues, Ventanas, for a transformation into Club Leah, and it was decorated for the night with lots of bright colors and some tie-dye accents, with undercurrents of recurring purple and black. One of the most eye-catching and memorable elements of the decor was very rare tie-dye roses that Tony Conway and Amy Saltzman of A Legendary Event actually imported from Amsterdam for the bat mitzvah. “All the funky elements that they went above and beyond for made all the difference,” Fisher said. “It was very cool, very different and edgy; it was exactly what they wanted.” Images by Wittmayer Photographers!
