Although “The Great Gatsby” took place on Long Island, Nicolette Torani and her family brought F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel to life in Brooklyn, New York.

On a warm summer evening, Nicolette celebrated her Great Gatsby-themed Sweet 16 at Garguilo’s Restaurant with the help of Hurricane Productions.

From the décor and dress to the cake, this event was all about classic 1920s flair but with a modern twist. Hurricane photographers captured portraits of Nicolette, her family, and her court – who were dressed in sleek, era-appropriate black, gold, and silver outfits – as well as solo shots of the birthday girl under Garguilo’s gorgeous outdoor gazebo.

MC Robert Padovano lead the entertainment team, keeping her friends and family on the dance floor throughout the night. To match Nicolette’s elegant red ballgown, lighting tech Nick Nittoli set up red and amber full ballroom uplighting, as well as twin totem uplighting and two 42″ screens displaying a custom animation based on the event’s theme.
