Guests stared in awe upon entering the magnificent ballroom for Sarah’s quinceinera Saturday night. The Marriott Harbor Beach resort playing host to the party, made the perfect location to host this beautiful evening.
The night began with yet another south Florida rain pouring down forcing the cocktail hour, prior to the party, to move in doors. While waiting anxiously for the evening to begin, guests were entertained with music and beverages. The Grand Ballroom was decorated with a Halloween feel as ripped clothes and flickering chandeliers hung from the roof. The spooky affect leading guests into a night they would never forget.

The traditional quince kicking off with the “Gururra” or changing of the shoes. The Gururra is one of the most popular Quince traditions and symbolizes the young girl transforming into a women as her father replaces her flat shoe with a heel. Following the changing of the shoes Sarah and her father made their way to the center of the dance floor to take part in their father-daughter dance.
