From the entertainment by Pitbull and Nick Jonas, to the services of a celebrity make-up artist, to the $6 million price tag, this was no ordinary 15th birthday celebration.
Texan teen Maya Henry’s Quinceañera was, in fact, more extraordinary than almost any other birthday party thrown for a girl her age. Held across a 55,000 square foot space in San Antonio, which was decorated with 30-foot tall cherry trees in full blossom, walls of roses, fountains, a ‘garden room’ and a ballroom with butterflies suspended from the ceiling, the lavish setting of the birthday bash was really just the beginning of the decadence.
The birthday girl herself was wearing a bespoke Rolando Santana dress and make-up by Patrick Ta, who has also worked with the Kardashians, and her photographer was Donna Newman, who has also worked with Matt Damon and First Lady Michelle Obama.

Delivering her verdict on the party, she said: ‘It was an amazing night, one I will never forget. I am so thankful to everyone who attended and to my amazing parents, who literally made my dreams come true.’
