A Masquerade Sweet Sixteen!

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!
