Carissa’s Quinceañera

Carissa’s Quinceañera was a lot of fun! By far the best birthday party I have ever been too! She wore a beautiful white princess style gown and her accent color was red..everyone had red! The Ballroom was decorated in red as well…and the whole party did a beautiful choreographed dance towards the end of the evening.

What is a Quinceañera?

One of the most important celebrations in Mexican culture is the tradition of the Quinceañera. This constitutes a ceremony on a girl’s fifteenth birthday to mark her passage to womanhood, to give thanks to God for his blessings, and to present a young woman to the community.

The young woman’s fifteenth birthday begins with a Misa de acción de gracias, or mass to give thanks for a completed childhood. The festejada, or adolescent woman celebrating the birthday, is seated at the foot of the church altar resplendent in an elaborate pink or white formal dress. The godparents have bestowed her with special gifts, often jewelry to accent the beautiful dress. Around the celebrant are seated her damaschambelanes (escorts).  (maids of honor) and and chambelanes (escorts).

Carrissa’s celebration begun with a ceremony, after the party took a limo to downtown to take some formal photos. Than the evening started with dinner and a Mariachi band, followed by a more formal Latin band and than finally a disc spinning DJ! Woo what a party. People went crazy over the yummy chocolate fountain and the amazing cake!

What a great party—-thank you for allowing me to be a part of it in such a special way! It was such a joy.

Enjoy the sneak peak!
