The reason I am writing in English (even though my first language is Serbian and would hopefully contain less grammatical mistakes :-)....) is so my husband can understand what am I writing behind his back, since my little blogger sofa is behind his desk.

And I had my perfect New York fairy tale. One of those true New York stories. Our wedding was Saturday after hurricane Sandy. His flight to NY was even canceled at one point. He and his mom were flying in from the UK, his dad from Spain, my parents from Bosnia, one of my best friends from Chicago and the best photographer ever from Croatia. JFK was closed for at least two days and La Guardia under the water.
Believe it or not at the end EVERYTHING was PERFECT. I can certainly say that was the happiest day of my life. I HAD SO MUCH FUN, which up to the wedding day I thought was impossible. I always had in mind one of those traditional balkan weddings (which is soooooo much fun if it's not your own :-).....) where you have at least 300 people that you couldn't care less about and a bunch of ridiculous traditions.....don't get me wrong, ridiculous traditions like everywhere else, but being a Balkan girl in NY marrying a Spanish guy gave me an amazing excuse to pick and choose the best of all. You can just imagine the wedding planner at Penthouse 808 when I told her I am not going to have bridesmaids :-).
I guess after the storm, canceled flight, no electricity at NY City Hall where we supposed to get our marriage certificate, both of us let it all go and decided to enjoy our day. Even if I could do it all over again, I would not change any single detail.
