Gabrielle's Stratus Lounge BirthdayEvery birthday counts. Yet a 21st birthday is special because it signifies a major turning point in a young adult’s life. This milestone should be celebrated. For Gabrielle Coben, her  21st birthday bash at the Stratus Lounge in Philadelphia was indeed a beautiful celebration. J&J Studios was there to capture every moment of Gabrielle’s lounge birthday party.

Planning Gabrielle’s Birthday Celebration

This year Gabrielle had her heart set on throwing an epic party to bring in her 21st birthday with all of her friends and family. After all, this was the year where she would be welcomed into adulthood and would finally be legal! So she decided to host her party at the Stratus Rooftop Lounge.


When Philadelphia shut down in late March due to the coronavirus Gabrielle was sure that her party would be canceled.  However, Gabrielle decided to hold on to her reservation. When everything opened up in June she was informed that she would still be able to host her party at the lounge. 


Gabrielle was ecstatic and wanted to throw an event where her friends and family could have lots of fun and could forget about their worries for a while.  Coben sent out invitations to just a small group of family and friends.
