Even though they faced off in rugby matches at opposing universities, Jaime and Chelsie didn’t officially meet until Jaime was interning with Chelsie’s brother, and he invited all of the interns to a Fourth of July party. “Since then, we’ve looked back at rugby pictures and found ones of us tackling each other well before we even knew each other!” exclaims Chelsie.
Visiting the city of Moab in Utah on President’s Day weekend had been an annual tradition for the lovebirds, but on this particular trip, Jaime strangely kept crashing her mountain bike … “I was beginning to wonder what was up with her when we stopped along the trail for some snacks. Jaime asked me to marry her for about the 100th time, but this time, she pulled out a ring!” says Chelsie. “I was genuinely surprised because, although we had talked about getting married a lot, I had no idea she had been working with a local shop to make a ring. I started working with a company right away to order her ring and was able to give it to her a few months later on a backpacking trip in the Wind River Range!”
For their engagement photos, they worked with photographer Jennifer Morgan and met at a popular spot overlooking the Horsetooth Reservoir in Fort Collins in Colorado. With the wind whipping, they climbed cliffs and snuggled against red rocks for a truly epic engagement shoot.
