Paola's Quinceañera!

I want to dedicate this blog entry to la familia Marquez. This family has decided to continue the Quinceañera tradition here with us at the Sheraton Cerritos.

What’s a Quinceañera? Most of us think it is just a fiesta… but I want to share the actual meaning of this special event with you. The Quinceañera tradition dates back to more than 600 years to the Aztec and Mayan cultures who celebrated when a young girl became eligible to marry, have children, and take on the responsibilities of a woman in the community. Eventually, the Spaniards were influenced by this tradition, and a Catholic connection emerged.  

I remember cuando cumpli 15 años, I did not want to have a Quinceañera because I thought I was too cool for that! Now that I am older and wiser (jajaja) I regret it… I don’t have fotos or a memory of that special day. So I definitely encourage young señoritas to celebrate that special day whether it’s in your backyard or at a beautiful hotel… like the Sheraton Cerritos!

Paola, thank you for letting us to be a part of your special day…I hope we made it extra especial para ti y tu familia! Gracias!

Special Thanks<3
Ever since I was 8 years old, and I saw Sheraton Cerritos Hotel I went in and looked around. I loved it so much, and I always dreamed of having my quince there. Now that it passed, I look back and have WONDERFUL memories of a special day of my life in the most amazing Hotel I dreamed of having it in. It couldn't have been any better! Thanks to all my family, friends, and the banquet staffs, especially Yasmine Carreno for bringing more joy into my life and helping make such an unforgettble memory for me (:
