A Caring Couple, Santa Fe Summer Wedding: Gina & Max

My first meeting with Gina and Max felt like catching with old friends even though we had just met. These two were just that friendly! We talked about the details of their upcoming wedding, but we also talked about their love for running, and dogs, and each other! 

Their wedding day was similarly pleasant. The guests began arriving to Hyde Memorial State Park and Gina and her girl friends unhurriedly migrated to the dressing room to sip cold tequila, chat, take a few photos and put on Gina's amazing wedding dress. The guests were able to get drinks and walk around the gorgeous mountain venue set high in the pines above Santa Fe, NM. When it was time for the ceremony, people gathered around Gina and Max while they read each other their promises instead of vows. These two made some really sweet promises to each other surrounded by loving family and friends. Afterwards, the couple made a margarita for each guest as a way of greeting and thanking them for attending.

A beautiful New Mexican dinner spread from Ana Luisa in Santa Fe was served and accompanied by speeches from two close friends. Dancing was kicked off with a classic line dance called la marcha. Gina and Max chose to have guests donate to the Española Animal Shelter instead of giving them gifts. 

To see the love and care these two bring, not only to each other, but to the world, was a special thing for me to be a part of on their wedding day.
