You cannot help but smile when seeing this beautiful young girl celebrate her quinceañera! We had an absolute blast shooting her special day and it's hard to believe she is only turning 15! After mass at St. Francis Xavier Church, Frances and her damas boarded a party bus to the Phoenix Country Club and celebrate her birthday in style.
Fran had an early peek into the ballroom to see every girl's fantasy party. Victoria, Brenda, & Ashley from the Victoria Canada event planning team did a phenomenal job pulling together Frances' dream quinceañera, complete with a candy bar and custom bags! Creative Occasions did stunning centerpieces with huge, white hydrangeas, dripping with crystals in turquoise vases striped with rhinestones. The ballroom glowed with the elegant white and silver linens and pops of turquoise.
Frances' parents were beaming with pride as they saw their daughter waltz with her Court of Honor and do a surprise dance with her girlfriends! Next was the traditional crowning and changing of the shoe. By the time she was dancing with her father, guests were reaching for their tissues. For Frances and her friends, there was a buffet brimming with all their favorite foods. The dance floor was filled with all of Fran's family and friends all night, and we're pretty certain they had a fantastic time. We absolutely love the last photo, Fran looks like a princess surrounded in tulle, after her long ball :)
We LOVE working with creative and flawless vendors like Victoria Canada & Creative Occasions and enjoyed every last minute we spent with the Hansen family. They should be so proud of their charming daughter and the young woman she is becoming! (Also, they own the one and only Rito's downtown-if you haven't gone, you need to go immediately and try their burritos-yum!!)
Happy quinceañera Frances!
