Congratulations to Cayleigh on her Quinces celebration.
DJ Luna Entertainment had the pleasure to DJ and Emcee this important event for this sweet young lady. Everyone danced and had a great time sharing with family and friends.
Many of the guests had never been to a Quinces before so I was tasked with explaining a little bit of the history and meaning behind some of the traditions. This particular Quinceañera was not as traditional as some others we have done. Cayleigh decided to only do the Grand Entrance, the Shoe Ceremony, she got a gift from mon and dad and of course her first dance with dad. During the Shoe Ceremony I was telling guests how these was the first time the little girl gets to wear a pair of high heels… everyone laughed at that one. We coordinated on some background music to play at each of these activities that would help to enhance and set the mood.
During dinner mom and dad showed a movie they had prepared showcasing her little girl and how she has grown in these past 15 years. This video or slide show has become a very popular aspect of a quinces celebration. Whether a professionally shot video or a homemade slide show, the impact is just as powerful among friends and family who are watching. On a side not I would just suggest to parent not to include potentially embarrassing photos of the birthday girl no matter how cute you they think it is. Luckily we did not have that issue here.
Later that evening the Quinceañera thanked all attending and handed out a number of favors to special guests. Usually we see this done with the candle ceremony where each person she thanks would come up and light a candle, but like I said, she was not traditional, and it was a lot of fun doing it this way.
Quinces held at the Binks Forest Golf Club in Wellington Florida.
