The Mark for Events Bar Mitzvah Photography

It's a dead young man's party. Who could ask for more? Everybody come and leave your tallis at the door! No disrespect meant to Oingo Boingo, but when we heard that Brandon's bar mitzvah would double as a Halloween party, we couldn't help but come up with every monster-sized pun we could think of. Brandon (who wore a traditional suit to the ceremony) converted into the walking dead for the Zombie-themed reception. In fact, everyone including his parents, their guests, and the staff at The Mark arrived in costume! Helping to set the spooktacular mood was Deb Parr of Amazing Grace Designs, who opted for skull centerpieces and black tapered candles over the more conventional party d├ęcor. Whether the impetus to host a costume party was purely based on timing, or a (clearly justified) excuse to dust off Dad's steam-punk general's jacket, we think it was a real treat for everyone involved!
