This was my first time ever attending a Quincenera, and I must say, it did not disappoint! I have photographed at The Crystal Ballroom in Casalberry twice before, but haven't had the opportunity yet to visit one of their sister venues until now.  The Veranda, is located in MetroWest, hidden within a cluster of large brightly colored buildings, filled with hip restaurants and boutiques.  One may not ever notice that this venue exsisted within this area, making it a true hidden gem!

I adored meeting the Patel family and being apart of their daughter, Isabella's celebration.  Isabella wore a lavish light pink ballroom gown, with gorgeous lace details and rhinestones.  Her hair effortlessly fell past her shoulders in waves, with a trendy middle part.  Photographing her during portraits was a breeze, it came very easy to her. 

After her ceremony, her mother and father had the traditional changing of shoes, where they remove her flats and exchange them for heels, a symbol of womanhood.  

After that, Isabella changed into another dress and the party began.  The coolest part about the day was seeing the Samba dancers, they really got the party going!
