Rosa's cousin, Angelina, has just gotten engaged! As she shares her fantasy for the perfect wedding with the Santos family over dinner, the grim-faced groom arrives with some news: he has received a promotion that will take him out of the country. Angelina is disappointed; she had wanted a wedding with her family, in town. Maya proclaims that they can host the wedding at their house, and have everything ready in just two days! Though stunned by this, Rosa and Santiago agree to help, and the countdown begins. Abuela is baking Mexican wedding cookies for the reception, Santiago is playing guitar and singing, Rosa is sewing the dress, Miguel is giving the toast, and Maya has been given a great honor: to hold the 13 gold coins for the ceremony known as Las Arras. As always seems to happen at weddings, many things start to go wrong. Paco has eaten all the cookies for the reception, Santiago has lost his voice, and the wedding dress is mangled in a faulty sewing machine. The Santos family is devastated. But Maya won't let them lose heart and is determined to help them fix everything before the wedding. It seems everything is going according to plan again, until Maya realizes she has lost the gold coins for Las Arras! Certain they were lost in the dough for the cookies, Maya and Miguel hop into action. They break open or eat many of the baked cookies... to no avail. At the ceremony, Maya tries to tell Angelina that she doesn't have the 13th coin... until Paco arrives, clutching the lost coin, and hands it off to Maya! Angelina and Pedro are thrilled by their meaningful wedding, all thanks to Maya and family.
