Quinceañera, or simply Quince, is the celebration of a girl’s fifteenth birthday in Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Central and South American traditions. This birthday is celebrated differently from any other birthday, as it marks the transition from childhood to young womanhood. In Mexico, the birthday girl, known as the Quinceañera, is made-up with elegantmakeup. Traditionally, this would be the first time she was to wear makeup, wear high heels, and be allowed to date, however this is usually no longer the case. The Quinceañera is also expected to wear a formal evening dress. Traditionally, the dress worn by the Quinceañera to this event is an evening ball gown (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quincea%C3%B1era).
Ana Victoria’s Quinceañera was held in Denver, Colorado at Sacred Heart Catholic Church. We had a lot of fun capturing the days’ events and wanted to show a sneak peak before we finished editing the rest of the pictures. Hope you like them!
