Jaime and Rachel’s Clifton/Morenci Wedding

Jaime and Rachel wanted to make sure their wedding day was a day they would never forget. So they took things to the next level. Not only did they become Mr. and Mrs., but their sweet newborn girl was baptized and Jaime was confirmed! It was all such a beautiful day full of sentimental moments, sweet family, and the cutest baby girl!

Jaime and Rachel are high school sweethearts and have the most fun relationship! Jaime took Rachel on a surprise trip to San Diego. She had no idea where they were headed until they were nearly there! Rachel had her hopes and suspicions that something was up when they went to dinner on the dock, seated in a gazebo decorated with flowers and fairy lights. But then they finished dinner and headed back to their hotel, and she figured that maybe this wasn’t the proposal night after all. Once they got to the parking lot, Jaime went around and opened Rachel’s door and pulled out the ring box! Rachel said, “Of course I cried and said yes and we did our little happy dance that we do for all the good things that happen to us.” The next day they went to Disneyland where Jaime told her that he’d planned on proposing there but got too excited that he couldn’t wait any longer! I LOVE it!

Their wedding day in Clifton was absolutely beautiful! Warm, soft breeze, golden light. It was awesome! They started the day in their homes getting ready, and then met at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church for the wedding. That church is beautiful! I loved the stone exterior! All of Rachel’s details were exquisite! I LOVED her bouquet handle. So elegant!

Are you ready for the little Miss?! She’s adorable!!

Rachel’s cousin is a Deacon in the Catholic Church and was able to assist in the wedding! So many special layers to this day!

Completely and utterly smitten!

These two are so gorgeous together!

I walked into the Morenci Club to get the reception decor shots and was blown away. The chandelier was a gift from Rachel’s parents for the wedding, and for her to hang in her home someday. It was so elegant and gorgeous!

Neither Jaime nor Rachel are big cake fans…so they decided to minimize the cake and go for donuts instead! Because who doesn’t like donuts?! It was so cute!

For their cocktail hour, they had a mariachi band come and play! They went table to table and took requests, and I could have stayed there all night listening (I stayed extra as it was just to hear them play for cocktail hour, they were so good)!!

Jaime and Rachel, thank you so much for inviting me into such a special day for your family. Jaime, your poses were perfect and your humor kept me cracking up! Rachel, your calmness was amazing! Such a stunning, happy, friendly bride!! I loved getting to meet your sweet baby and your amazing family! I can’t wait to see how Laylah grows!

    Really?! That’s awesome. Such a tiny town to have connections in. Definitely worth a visit! The mine is fascinating, Chase Creek historical district is super cool, the bighorn sheep on the hills are fun, and it’s such a cool corner of the state!
