“Como Una flor, tanto amor, me diste tu…” With these words of Selena in her song “Como una Flor” emcee and toast master Angel Nunez welcomed Jasmin Marin and her entourage at the Lion’s Den, where family, friends and invited guests gathered to celebrate the fifteenth birthday (quinceaños) of San Pedro’ newest quinceañera. Jasmin was accompanied by eight maids of honor and her main chaperon was Cousin Josh Marin.
Jasmin was escorted into the reception hall by her parents Mirza and Arely Marin. Two madrinas (Godmothers) were there to share in her joy, Ruth Marin and Aracelie Ritchie who presented Jasmin with her offfcial quinceñera ring. After a blessing and very interesting remarks by Pastor Marvin Gomez, her madrina presented her with a crown and her dad removed her childhood shoe and presented her with her high heels symbolizing her readiness to commence socializing. It was also Arely, her dad, who proudly walked her around the reception hall presenting her daughter into society.
Jasmine and her friends presented a wonderful surprise dance to the delight of her invited guests, and afterwords it was DJ Fast of Skynet Productions that was in charge keeping the music alive while the ecstatic teenagers kept the dance hall in a most lively mood. A wonderful party for a wonderful quinceañera, Yasmin Marin, who was officially welcome in the society of adults. Congratulations to a lovely San Pedrana and a wonderful family that hosted a most wonderful fiesta for this princess.
