Love is patient…sometimes in life our paths may cross but it’s not until God’s plan comes into focus that we realize we were meant to be together. This is true for Mikala and Jay. The couple were childhood friends, but went on to lead separate lives for many years, until seeing one another again at a friend’s birthday party. And that simple reconnection redefined their lives. The bride, a native to the Southwest, returned with her groom to celebrate their Spanish style wedding with family here in Santa Fe. It was definitely a family affair, not only the guests but the participants. Mikala’s two sons walked her down the aisle, and Jay’s niece and nephew stood with him at the altar while the bride’s father performed the ceremony. And true to spring in Santa Fe, we experienced every flavor of weather on this blessed day!
