We were honored and beyond excited to collaborate with Maya on her Quinceañera.

Quinceañera is the celebration of a girl's 15th birthday. It has cultural roots in Latin and Spanish countries. 

Maya envisioned all guests in black and white attire and she in red. We were immediately in love with the theme and built out the story from that direction.

Our first step was to secure a venue that would reflect Maya's vision. A venue with a mysterious vibe . At The Wooly Private we uncovered the perfect secret spot.

Maya greeted her guests upon arrival in white dress.

Through an unmarked back entrance Maya made her REVEAL.... her first introduction into society as a women.

Maya floated through a secret door onto the stage in a beautiful RED dress. She remained the sprinkle of red in a room of black and white.

Following the REVEAL. Maya's grandparents graced her with a bouquet of red roses. The petals of the flowers are a representation of sweetness and the stems of the roses represent her strength.

Changing of the shoe. Maya's father, Akir, replaced May's shoes with a pair of heels. The pair of heels is a symbol of Maya's growth and responsibility.
