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.

Southern New England Weddings magazine Real Wedding feature of Simin and Nick with Simeral & Co.

We could not have asked for a more perfect summer day for Christina and Jay’s Cape Cod wedding. We started off at the home of the parents of the bride in Falmouth, MA that was transformed for the occasion. It was extra special to the couple as Christina’s parents celebrated their wedding day in the same location years ago.

Christina and her bridesmaids got ready on the property while Jay and his groomsmen were just across the street. Following the first look on the balcony overlooking the ocean, we headed down to the beach and around the property with the couple. The back yard made for the perfect location for formal photographs with the family and wedding party before heading to the church.

Following the ceremony, guests headed to the home for cocktails on the lawn as the sun set over the ocean.  It could not have been a more beautiful evening. Dinner and dancing took place in the tent with flowers and decor designed by Domenic Cambia and lighting by Suzanne B. Lowell. New York City based band The Stingers kept Christina, Jay and their guests on the dance floor all evening.

Congratulations again to Christina and Jay! We can not thank you enough for having us there to capture your wedding day. A big thank you to Deb Welch of Studio 9 for sending this amazing couple our way and to coordinator Lynne Enos for helping make the day so special for the newlyweds and their family.

The Tented New England Summer Cape Cod Wedding of Christina and Jay – Photographs by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

On a warm September evening, we were thrilled to join Simin +  Nick at the bride’s family home to see their wedding inspiration come to life. The couples vision for their wedding was elegant, magical and romantic. An evening that has the look and feel of a Midsummer Night’s Dream, complete with a lush garden setting, twinkling lights and a star-filled sky.

With a beautiful blend of Persian and Jewish heritages, Simin and Nick had a sweet and touching ceremony. Simin’s family’s backyard magically transformed into soft palate of blush, ivory, and green creating an elegant backdrop for this gorgeous couple! An enchanting Sperry Tent was beautifully transformed by the incredible teams at Winston Flowers, Rentals Unlimited, and Simeral & Co. Guests enjoyed the live music of Sultans of Swing, including a beautiful rendition of the classic Ella Fitzgerald number, “Love is Here to Stay”, as Simin + Nick’s first dance. This beautiful couple celebrated their special day surrounded by loving family and friends. 

Congratulations to Simin + Nick and thank you for putting your trust in us to document this extraordinary celebration of love!

Meghan and Chris live in Austin, Texas. So, they booked Person + Killian Photography over the phone.  Lauren and Meghan hit it off from their first conversation.  Finding the right Boston photographer was important to Meghan. Because the couple was getting married at Fort Adams in Rhode Island, they wanted someone who is creative and could take advantage of this beautiful and unique Newport venue.

Two days before their wedding Megan and Chris made the trip to our Newbury Street office in Boston so we could finally meet.  The minute they came into our studio, it felt as if we had know them for years.  We could not wait to be a part of their wedding! Below are a handful of the many amazing moments from their beautiful Newport wedding.

Thank you Meghan and Chris for trusting Person + Killian Photography to document this important day and braving the bitter cold so we could capture these images for you!
