Whenever the weekend comes around it is very exciting for many reasons… I get a break from school and work and get to hang out and just relax with my family and friends. This weekend was a bit more special because my mom was getting married. All of our family members were either flying in or coming into town and whenever the family gets together it’s always a good time. On Friday during the day time the whole family went out to brunch, it was very special because for some of my aunts, it was their first time visiting the United States so they got to catch up with their siblings and nieces and nephews. Later on that day I played tour-guide and took them all around NYC. Being that one of my aunts is an architect and the other a shopaholic, being in downtown, new york was perfect. After all of the shopping, my cousin and I took our favorite aunt out to Pergola. She loved the place and the dynamic of it, she instantly fell in love with the music and it was her first time smoking hookah. On Saturday morning things were more intense since it was the day of the wedding. Nonetheless the ceremony was beautiful, when I first saw my mom walk into the church I couldn’t contain my tears of joy; she looked so beautiful and happy just like a princess in a Disney movie. After the ceremony ended we all went to the venue where the second half of the wedding was taken place. It was such a great time to have my whole family and my mother’s husband family there together. We made endless toast to the newly weds, danced all night and we even did the mannequin challenge! This weekend was exceptional and I was so overjoyed at how perfect everything came out to be, from the flower decorations, to the live bands, to the bridesmaids dresses etc. This is a weekend that my family and I will talk about forever.
