One of the most important celebrations in Hispanic culture is the tradition of the quinceañera, a ceremony on a girl’s fifteenth birthday, marking her passage to womanhood and presenting her to the community. Emma wanted to celebrate this part of her Hispanic culture, but her parents needed to be convinced. After preparing and presenting her very persuasive PowerPoint presentation, her parents agreed. They knew they would need help, so they called us.
Emma is a girl who knows exactly what she wants. It was important to her to incorporate some of the traditional quinceañera rituals, while at the same time, creating an event that was modern and elegant…just like Emma. The color pink and tiaras were our design inspirations, so we channeled our inner princesses to make all of Emma’s wishes come true.
After the traditional mass at Our Lady of the Lake Parish in Lake Oswego, the guests made their way to the Multnomah Athletic Club for a stunning reception. We transformed the entrance to the ballroom to befit our princess and her royal court.
The décor on the tables and around the room were a stunning mix of fabulous pink floral with touches of bling to complete the fantasy.
Some of the traditional rituals were the dance of the royal court, the changing of the shoes ceremony and the lighting of the 15 candles to honor Emma’s family and friends.
We were so pleased to help the Valderrama family with this very special life event. It was such a memorable celebration and a night that Emma will never forget.
