A celestial quinceañera will definitely leave you starry-eyed. The sky is the limit with this theme. It is quite the star-studded affair! There’s just something about a celestial event that is out of this world and perfect for the nature or astrology lover.
Our cover shoot was beautifully captured by Caitlin Alohilani Photography. As recently featured on People magazine for shooting Christina Anstead’s of Flip or Flop party, Caitlin is known for her storytelling approach. Her photos gave us a glimpse of how the venue beautifully tied into the theme of the events. Sometimes simple and elegant is best.
Alisha J Designs is no stranger to unique and fun themes. Her work has been seen on the My Dream Quiceañera show, Fleurtopia with La Fleur, for Youtubers Ok Baby, and activations at the Langham Huntington Pasadena, etc. She paired celestial motifs with indigo blue and metallic silver for that ethereal feel. She was inspired by the beauty of the constellation. Did you see the celestial theme concha party favors by La Llorona Bakes that adorned Alisha’s gorgeous tabletop setting? Elegant Designs Specialty Linens provided the most beautiful Indigo Dupione Silcara linen to bring elegance at its finest for the table.
Our venue, The Sheraton Los Angeles San Gabriel, was crowned the Jewel of the San Gabriel Valley. This AAA 4 Diamond Rated, the hotel was the perfect blend of modern sophistication. For the stylish quinceañera, the marble paired with the individual suspended glass globes from above makes for a party that was written in the stars.
GLAUDI designer Johana Hernandez who was Nominated by PEOPLE magazine en Español in 2014 as “25 most powerful woman” and Latina Magazine “30 favorite stars under 30” was honored for her success as a hardworking and inspiring designer. She is the youngest Latina business owner in Beverly Hills and the only Latina in Paris Fashion week. What an inspiration to young Latinas.
She designed Lupillo Rivera’s daughter Lupita’s and Rosie Rivera’s daughters’ quinceañera dresses that went viral. GLAUDI XV Couture- “Lori” is a celestial blue satin ball gown with hand-beaded embroidery and adorned with crystals to give you that perfect sparkle! This design can be styled off the shoulder or on the shoulder with a stunning satin ball gown skirt and corset for a fitted bodice. Overall it is the perfect dress to dance the night away!
Our MUA Cole Saad drew inspiration for her makeup & hair look from the striking blue gown, elegant table decor, and of course the silver moon and sky backdrop. She wanted to create a look that displayed her youth but also the fact that she is becoming a young woman. She used a semi-matte Airbrush Foundation for youthful, radiant, flawless skin as my canvas. She wanted some drama on the eyes, to add to the sophistication of her gown. She opted for a semi smokey, neutral brown lid, with a subtle pop of navy smudged into her lower lash line. The pop of navy was a fun way to keep the look youthful and interesting. She paired this with soft pink cheeks & lips to complete the look.
Paper Garden Xoxo fabricated the most stunning silver moon and clouds backdrop. It created an illusion that our quinceañera was floating amongst the moon and the clouds. It was a stunning, artistic, celestial masterpiece sure to wow your guests.
Our all-star team of vendors painted a night under the stars. Aim high. Shoot for the stars and watch visions come to life.
Thank you to everyone who was a part of this day!
