Alondra can sometimes feel like she has a double life - one part completely different from other teens, the other just like them.
When I imagine my Wish…
Alondra had never experienced a big birthday party and
always dreamed of having a Quinceañera! Unfortunately, she was unable to
celebrate when she turned fifteen so when asked what her one true Wish was, she
wanted a Sweet Sixteen Party in a Quinceañera fashion!
Planning the big day…
She took great joy in planning her masquerade themed party.
The invitations were sent out, the venue was selected, and most importantly the
dress was perfect! With the help of her Wish Granters and the Make-A-Wish New
Mexico team, she was sure to have a magical day!
A masquerade celebration…
The celebration began with professional hair dos and
makeovers by Axis Salon Spa for Alondra and her mom. Her stunning turquoise
ball gown from Bebelex Boutique was paired with a hand crafted tiara to match!
From there she met her court and family at the Duck Pond to have professional
pictures taken by Patrick Trujillo so the memories can last forever! They were
all whisked off to the UNM Golf Course in a stretch limo to enjoy the evening that was beautifully decorated by Pop Balloons! Alondra
celebrated with the traditional Quinceañera shoe ceremony and a special dance
with her older brother. Everyone joined them on the dance floor while DJ Daniel
Guzman played her favorite songs!
Thank you to all of our Sponsors for making this once-in-a-lifetime
wish happen for Alondra!
