New York  - 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. Maya’s father, lawyer Thomas J Henry, and her mother Azteca, hired the services of New York social event planner David Monn and a team of 150 event planners to organize the party at the purpose-built venue. Attended by 600 guests, the event went off without a hitch, with the birthday girl expressing her joy at how well the party had gone - and how grateful she was that her parents were able to organize such an incredible bash for her. 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.’

Maya posted pictures from the event on her Instagram of herself with Pitbull, family friend Nick and Patrick thanking them for their services. She wrote: ‘Thank you @nickjonas for performing at my party thank you @rolando_santana and @ports1961womenswear for my dresses and also thank you @patrickta for the make-up!’ According to one Instagram user, who claimed to be working at the party, the family arrived in a police escort with nine Rolls Royces. Accompanying a video of Pitbull performing, Rileyromz wrote: ‘I was helping at a millionaire event last night. Lawyer got #Pitbull and #NickJonas for 15 years old daughter’s birthday party.  ‘Family came in police escort with nine Rolls Royces. Gourmet food everywhere. Unbelievable. But I saw famous people in person!’ Meanwhile Maya’s uncle Chris Crawford wrote on his Instagram page, alongside an image of Maya, her parents and her grandparents: ‘My beautiful mother, niece, sister, and brother-in-law as the cake was rolled out for my niece’s quinceanera. Was such a beautiful night and a total blast!’ 

Chris also shared an image of himself posing alongside Indiana Pacers center Ian Mahinmi, who shared his own picture of himself and the birthday girl on Instagram, wishing Maya a very happy birthday. But while to many, the party was incredibly star-studded, Maya, who has more than 18,000 followers on Instagram, is no stranger to spending time with high-profile celebrities. 

She frequently posts photographs of herself with stars including One Direction, Justin Timberlake, Justin Bieber, and even Hillary Clinton - whom she has met on more than one occasion, most recently at a campaign event in New York, where she hung out both with the presidential candidate, and with Katy Perry, who performed at the rally. 

Maya, who campaigns for Hillary Clinton for ‘Teens for Hillary’, shared several images from the event on her Instagram account, in which she was seen posing for selfies with Katy and Hillary, while sporting one of the politician’s T-shirts. 

Her Instagram account also documents other aspects of her incredibly lavish lifestyle, including luxury vacations, trips in private jets, and even intimate dinners at home in her family’s sprawling mansion. 

Maya, who is a high school freshman, is a regular on the Texas Tennis Championship circuit. Her father said: ‘Maya is a smart, driven, outstanding young woman. She has already worked so hard to get where she is with her studies, tennis and activism. 

‘Her mother and I wanted to give her an unforgettable night to mark her transition into young adulthood. We are so excited to see what the future holds for Maya.’ Thomas runs his own personal injury law firm, which is based out of Texas but serves clients across the country, employing more than 60 attorneys.
