The super achiever and pretty Shanaia Barrido Celo turned 18 recently and was introduced to Iloilo society in an awesome Cinderella-themed celebration at Hotel del Rio’s grandiose Sunset Terrace Ballroom
The debut bash was excellently supervised by her dad Joemarie Celo, since her US-based mom Valerie was unable to attend for health reasons.
Joemarie saw to it that everything went perfectly well, from the to-die-for dinner and desserts to the speeches by loved ones and the celebrator’s close pals and classmates.
What made the night even more special are the eye-catching arrangements of pink roses, fuchsia celosias, light pink carnations, and green hydrangeas.
Shanaia’s royalty pumpkin carriage pulled by white horse and her stunning looks in an Alfie Desamparado gown was simply perfect for the event.
Her dad Joemarie and his high school classmate, Iloilo City Mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog, led the toast to the lovely debutante.
“I am extremely thankful and grateful on how Shanaia has grown up to be such a fine lady and responsible daughter and sister to her brothers Kevin and Andre, with an admirable sense of commitment to her studies and of course to us her family,” Joemarie said.
To our darling Shanaia, may all your dreams of happiness, good health and success come true!
