Southern New England Weddings magazine is an annual wedding magazine that provides inspiration for those looking to wed anywhere in Southern New England including: Rhode Island and Newport, Boston, Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, Coastal Connecticut and Eastern Massachusetts. We are delighted to see the real wedding of Simin and Nick in their most recent issue.

Simin & Nick – Milton, MA – by Stacey Marcus: When Simin Lee and Nicholas (Nick) Bodnar tied the knot in a beautiful backyard ceremony and reception at the bride’s parents’ home in Milton, Massachusetts, guests enjoyed the flavors of the couple’s Persian and Jewish heritages sprinkled with the sweetness of pure love. The couple originally met in Beijing at a Chinese immersion program in 2008 while undergraduate students at Harvard University. It wasn’t until they were both graduate students at Harvard Medical School that their love blossomed. “It was a nice time to start a relationship,” says Simin, who recalls studying for 12 hours straight an then cooking together or enjoying take-out.

The couple delighted in an inside joke about enchanting chocolate shop in Cambridge called L.A. Burdick Chocolates where girls huddle to drink hot chocolates and couples canoodle and share a little slice of romance. Simin and Nick said that they were not yet on “Burdick’s level” and never made it to the chocolate until Nick suggested they visit on a snowy night during the historic 2014 wicked winter. “It was a very sweet surprise when Nick dropped to one knee and proposed,” says Simin.

Family played a major role in the ceremony with a trio of officiants: Dr. Andrew Bodnar, father of the groom, and Fereydoun Nazem and William Lee, uncles of the bride. Simin’s father, Dr. Thomas Lee, gave a toast about how the couple’s sweet story illuminates the power of destiny. The breaking of the glass was particularly significant to Simin and Nick, who come from different cultural backgrounds and broke barriers to create a union of love, peace and understanding.

Hot off the press – The premier issue of Southern New England Weddings Destination Edition! We are thrilled one of the features is the Person + Killian Photography Cape Cod real wedding of Lauren & Alex.

Lauren and Alex Carabelli – 6.4.11 -Chatham, Massachusetts – by Celia Parsons for SNEW

Cape Cod weddings are known for casual seaside style, but Lauren and Alex Carabelli wanted to exchange their vows in black-tie elegance at their favorite beach destination. “I’ve always loved urban glamour, but we also love the Cape’s laid-back feel,” says Lauren, who has summered in Wellfleet since she was a child. She first brought the groom to the Cape while they were dating in college. “He fell in love with it the same way I did,” she says.

With two large families and an extensive group of mutual friends, the couple looked for a location that could accommodate all their guests without losing a sense of intimacy. They chose the Wequassett Resort and Golf Club in Chatham, overlooking Pleasant Bay, for it beauty and flexibility. “We wanted our wedding to be fancy, with everyone dressed up and looking great, but we didn’t want it to be traditional or formal,” says Lauren. “They [the resort] were very amenable to tailoring it to what we wanted.”

Unique touches made the ceremony meaningful. Aviator sunglasses, a trademark from the couple’s college days, were offered to guests from a basket signed, “You may be blinded by our love.” A close friend, ordained for the occasion, married the couple, while a “bridesman” and “groomsmaid” stood by at the altar.

Following a “no seashell, sand or lighthouse rule.” The couple drew inspiration from sea glass hues of blue and green for the reception. “It was a beach wedding without being too literal,” says Lauren. Sparkling chandeliers and stately arrangements of while calla lilies were a dramatic counterpoint to the coastal backdrop, while a menu of “lobster fillet of filet and lobster” were classic Cape Cod.

Throughout the evening, guests wrote well-wishes on Cape postcards and dropped them in a vintage blue suitcase, a nod to the Cape’s vacation vibe. For favors, hand-painted aprons from Blue Water Fish Rubbings of Chatham carried one of the groom’s favorite seafood recipes tucked into the pocket.

The weekend celebration also included a rehearsal dinner that the Wayside Inn in Chatham and a Sunday brunch and clambake at the Chequessett Yacht and Country Club in Wellfleet, both captured by wedding photographer Jill Person. “It was wonderful to spend three days with the couple and guests,” says Jill. “They all became so comfortable with the camera, which comes through in the photos.”

And photos weren’t the only tangible memory this couple walked away with. Naomi Raiselle of Generations Cinemastories was there to document their day on film, and collect comments on camera for the new couple. “Since friends brought the couple together, friends were the central focus of the wedding,” says Naomi. Everyone had comments to share about the couple, which will make the wedding film so meaningful and rich in the years to come.”

“We had the best time, with so many moments that were special in their own way,” says Lauren. “There are so many rules with weddings, but you can still have a wedding that is personal and speaks to you as a couple.”

This past September we received a call from the Editor of Southern New England Weddings. She wanted to know if Person + Killian Photography would photograph their fashion editorial for the Southern New England Weddings 2011 issue. On top of the excitement of doing the shoot itself, we found out we would be working in two great locations: The Hotel Commonwealth and Fenway Park.

The day started out at The Hotel Commonwealth where we photographed a couple of tablescapes designed by the fabulous David Handy of David Handy Events. For the second part of the day, P+K along with a fantastic entourage of stylists and magazine personnel moved to America’s Most Beloved Ballpark.
