As your tree matures it should become more symmetrical. Pruning will encourage new growth but pruning the very top of the tree is not a good idea. Juvenile trees often look lopsided but eventually they straighten up and grow right. Just be a little more patient with your weeping will and it will turn into a beautiful specimen.
