Just outside the city of Albuquerque and surrounded by nature, family and friends gathered as Siona and Nick exchanged vows and started their married life together in June. Siona and Nick found the perfect venue for them and their wedding weekend at the YWCA Piñon Canyon Center in Tijeras, New Mexico. Under a small and oh-so-sweet handmade sign "NJ + SB", they exchanged their vows in a clearing of juniper and southwest brush. After officially becoming husband and wife, it was time to begin the dancing and celebrating! As contra dancers they had a list of dances ready to go to bring their families and friends together immediately after their first dance. By the time the contra dancing was over everyone had worked up quite an appetite and were ready to dig into the fabulous roasted pig that the groom had proudly prepared himself.
The night continued with much more dancing and cake back in the lodge. A roaring bonfire was even built just outside the lodge. Everyone danced the night away, under the stars of the New Mexican sky as the celebration of Siona and Nick continued.
