Suit: Wedding ad features girl, uncle

A New York teenager is suing a wedding hall and bridal shop for allegedly using pictures of her with an uncle in wedding advertisements.

Katelyn Aviles, 17, said The Sanz banquet hall and Margie's Bridal have been distributing fliers featuring a picture of her with her uncle, Anthony Cabrera, at her sweet 16 party, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

Aviles said the fliers gave the impression that she and her uncle were a couple preparing for marriage. She said her party was not held at The Sanz and she does not know how the businesses obtained the photograph.

The suit, which seeks unspecified damages, was filed Tuesday at the city Supreme Court.
