(Scroll down for video) A young woman with Down syndrome had her dream “wedding” where she was dressed like any bride at her wedding day.

Like every woman, 25-year-old Ricchina Di Joseph of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, always dreamed of having the perfect wedding.

However, she is not your typical 25-year-old woman. Joseph was born with Down syndrome, but that did not stop her loving mother from giving the young woman her dream “wedding.”

Joseph was given a birthday to remember when her mother arranged for her to have a wedding-themed party.

From wedding invitations to a limo, a three-tier cake and stunning wedding dress, Joseph looked like a beautiful bride, as she danced the night away with family and friends.

A photographer captured the special moments of Joseph’s big day, from having her hair styled to sharing her first dance with her mother.

Although there was no groom, the wedding party was a dream come true for the young woman, and a joy for the rest of the family as well.
