On Saturday I arrived to the Oviatt Penthouse in Los Angeles where the beautiful birthday girl Sally was finishing up the final touches to her Old Hollywood theme soiree! The penthouse was gorgeously decorated in the classic 1920’s era. With everyone all dolled up they were sure to have a great night!
The beautiful birthday girl Sally!
And her awesome family!
As her guests arrived they were served fancy champagne!
The desert table was filled with yummy sweets & cool classic candies like pop rocks & sugar babies!
Sally’s son was overseas & wasn’t able to make it to the party so they surprised her with a video phone call! Such a sweet moment!
Her husband made a nice speech & dedicated “Lady in Red” to his beautiful wife!
These are the moments that I live for!
Birthday gifts! Can you say Bling! Bling!!!!
We were serenaded by Rudy G y los Hi-Tones! They were hitting us with the classics all night long! Soooo AWESOME!!!
It don’t mean a thing if it aint got that swing!
LA's City Lights!
Thank you Sally for allowing me to be a part of this special night! Special thanks to Diane Carter for being my second shooter!
