Life Arts Center of Riverside: Sweet 16 Photograph: Alice in Wonderland: Lizette

“When I used to read fairy-tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one!”

And it was a fairy tale come true. Lizette’s cancelled Quinceañera due to Covid, became a beautiful Sweet 16 celebration. The theme was Alice in Wonderland. Her bedroom was decorated with characters from the book and her mom had beautiful Alice in Wonderland shoes and a bouquet specially made.

Lizette had a first look with her dad. He nervously waited for Lizette to touch his hand and to turn to see his little girl while Lizette’s mom and sister watched. They smiled, laughed and then emotions took over as they hugged. Lizette also had a very special photoshoot with her dog Coco, who smiled as she picked him up.

The solemnity of Mass included a reading by her father, thanks from her parents and a special blessing. Everyone that was accompanied her to church took a group photo with Lizette. A few photos with her friends and we went to celebrate to a beautifully decorated hall. Top hats, keys, cards, and tea cups were on every table along with blue flowers. The cake table was mesmerizing. It was a true Wonderland.

Mariachi played and a celebrity impersonator entertained during dinner.

Lizette danced with her dad to the song Sangre en mi Cuerpo, by Angela and Pedro Aguilar and she danced with her friends a waltz to Alice by Avril Lavigne.

It was an amazing celebration.
