Last night I arrived back to Dubai from a very spontaneous trip to Chicago.
We were invited to a wedding, however since I didn't have any vacation planned I was almost 100% certain we weren't gonna be able to attend the festivities.
But last minute (a day before to be exact) I got my last minute vacation time, approved. We quickly packed our bags and booked our tickets to Chicago for the next day. Also a quick trip to Dubai Mall for some last minute wedding shopping.
The 3-day wedding celebrations were absolutely fantastic. It was the best wedding I've ever attended and we were so spoilt!
First night was a "Meet the family" event. Very causal autumn theme where we met most of the guests at the grooms parents house.
Second night was the "Black and White" night when we were taken on a cruise through the river of Chicago and admired all the beautiful architecture the city had to offer. Stunning! After the boat ride we went to a luxurious restaurant where they served unlimited oysters and champagne together with other outstanding nibbles. There was also Shisha on the terrace so we felt right at home.
Third night was the wedding event, which of course started with the ceremony followed by a cocktail hour on a rooftop terrace (it was COLD). We were then seated for dinner and it was just a stunning venue! Amazing food and even better company throughout the night.
We then stayed in Chicago for 2 more days before heading back to Dubai. Successful trip 😍
