I cannot for the life of me believe that I haven’t shared this kick-ass shoot before on the blog. This is the magic that happens when you get a few genius boss ladies together!

Have you ever wanted to have the BEST birthday party ever with your girlfriends? Does a pool party sound fun? How about a vintage cabana inspired birthday party during the summer poolside? YES?! You could even turn these ideas into graduation party ideas or a house warming or bachelorette!! I mean seriously you can’t go wrong here. Your friends would never stop talking about it. I know I wouldn’t.

The mastermind behind this genius is Chelsea of Illumination Events Studio and she absolutely rocks! (I mean I even hired her as my day of wedding coordinator she’s so awesome!!) When Chelsea asked if I’d like to participate in a vintage cabana styled birthday party & she showed me her inspiration I jumped up and down with excitement. If you’re planning any type of event, party, or wedding and need some help with inspiration, planning, bringing the whole thing together then she’s your woman. So many other amazing vendors came together for this birthday party shoot as well!!

So let’s start off with the venue. A cool pool of course!! This happens to be at Bandit’s Ridge  in Louisa, VA. Not too far of a drive from Richmond, it’s set out in the country so you could definitely play your music as loud as you would like and laugh the day away.

These lovely ladies were perfectly styled all day by Megan of Sweet Sauce. I’ve worked with her several times and she is just amazing and has the perfect eye for fashion and accessories. She’s perfect to work with to help you style your own closet, curate a new wardrobe, or of course to work with you on a specific project…like your senior pictures!! These beautiful women are wearing outfits from fab’rik of Carytown and they look smashing! Hair and makeup was perfectly done and attended to by Elle Style Studio.
