Real New England Weddings: Lauren Deysher & Paul Gojkovich

Married January 2, 2010 at Middlesex School, Concord, Four Seasons Boston.

WHEN A BLIZZARD BLEW into town the weekend of her impending nuptials, Lauren got the chills — the good kind, that is. “It was a winter wonderland,” she says. It wasn’t the first time she’d been pleasantly surprised, however: To propose, Paul showed up unexpectedly at her New York City apartment, then whisked her off for a bash with family and friends.

Lauren always knew where they’d marry: at the Memorial Chapel at Concord’s Middlesex School, her alma mater. Though the snowfall posed minor problems (“A few limos couldn’t make it up the hill,” the bride says), the ceremony and black-tie reception went off without a hitch — and the wintry scenery was enough to give everyone goose bumps.
