desert pool party bachelorette

From Pura Soul Photography “Meredith and her best friends hit Scottsdale, Arizona for a long weekend of celebration and relaxation. Decked out in matching sarongs (a gift from the bride), the group of friends from childhood and college traveled from New York City to Arizona. The Saguaro Hotel was host for a sun-filled desert bachelorette party to celebrate the future Mrs. The desert heat, the cool drinks, warm breeze, cacti, beach balls, and palm trees set the scene for this gorgeous bride-to-be!”

From the bride-to-be Meredith – “I wanted this bachelorette party to not just be a celebration of me but also a fun get away for my friends, and really a celebration of our friendship. The Saguaro Hotel was everything I could have hoped for and more. We were a giant group and basically had the place to ourselves! Not only was it super girly with hot pink and orange details everywhere but it had a chic southwest vibe.”

Meredith – “I wanted to just relax, have girl time, and drink some margaritas and that is exactly what we did. It meant to much to me to have all of my favorite girls in one place. To make it even better, one of my friends who is a photographer (Pura Soul Photography) dropped in and did a full on photoshoot around the pool. The weekend went by so fast, and having these photos really gives me something concrete to hold onto from the weekend.

The Saguaro was so stylish with its retro architecture and decor. The bright, tropical pool lounge and garden was the perfect backdrop for a photoshoot. We felt as if we were living in a Slim Aaron’s photograph each day as we relaxed around the pool and beach balls that were supposed to stay in the pool ended up in the air!”

Meredith ordered cactus bags from Etsy and filled them with Kate Spade slippers, tequila/margarita ingredients, a sarong, and a sweet hand-written thank you note and according to Meredith,”the Mexican street food inspired poolside menu was delicious!”
