Nicole + Jaime • Bear Brook Valley Wedding • New Jersey Wedding Photographer


Nicole + Jaime had to wait 11 months longer to tie the knot. Their May 2020 wedding had to be postponed but that did not take away from their beautiful celebration! 

Their day could not have been more perfect! 
Although it was an early April, I was so excited that the weather allowed them to have an outdoor ceremony at Bear Brook Valley!
I couldn't get enough of all the gorgeous florals by Pink Dahlia Floral Design including Nicole's bouquet, welcome sign and their unique seating chart - all custom made by Kim and her husband!

Their ceremony was followed by an evening of dancing, eating, and celebrating the New Mr. & Mrs. Arias!!

How They Met
Nicole and Jaime met at work in March of 2017 and started dating in September 2017. Their first date was a hiking trip that ended with ice cream. Nicole was unaware it was a date until they pulled up to Cliffs - her favorite spot!

How He Proposed
"Jaime proposed the day after Valentines Day. We went to dinner at the Liberty House which we always said we wanted to try when we live in Jersey City but never got around to it. Our first kiss was on the walkway of the water with the city in the background and Jaime proposed with the same backdrop - the spot for our first and last."

Favorite Things To Do Together
"We love to do so much together! Our favorites would be hiking, take out with a good movie, and traveling. We also try to incorporate our dog in as much as we can! We got him together early on in our relationship and he has proven, together we can handle anything!"

Nicole about Jaime: "For starters, he has to be the funniest person I have ever met. I love that everything isn't so serious all the time and he makes me laugh more than anything else every day!
I also love the person he is, he is my support system, my cheerleader, my confidence, and my compass pointing and pushing me in the right direction."

Jaime about Nicole: "There are too many to name. But one important one is her personality. I am my real self when I am around her and don't have to worry about being any different. We are both so comfortable with one another that we love each other for our raw true selves."

One word to describe them as a couple: 
Unconditional <3

Congratulations to The Newlyweds!
