For the wedding, Christian’s whole family flew in from Germany, and I had many relatives that traveled from out of town also. It was the first time either of us have ever seen everyone at once. It was a joyous occasion for all. And it was more than just the wedding day. We had an entire four days of fun with everyone so it was absolutely perfect. Some of the things that really made our day special was the diversity that was represented at our wedding. Each of the readings at the ceremony were translated into German. At the reception, we played Arabic and American music. And before dinner, we had a short cultural prayers recited in three languages: English, German, and Arabic, representing each of our backgrounds and cultures. That was so special and unique.
