The SEMERARO-LAZAROFF WEDDING — at last!
Jennifer Lazaroff and Kenneth Semeraro were joyously wed on June 23, 2022, after a two-year Covid postponement! The wedding was officiated by the Reverend Sunil Chandy of Christ Church, Westerly, at St. James Episcopal Church, Glastonbury. The dinner reception followed at St. Clements Castle in Portland, on a perfect day of blue skies overlooking the Connecticut River.
Jennifer grew up in Glastonbury, the daughter of Victoria Ascherman, a church cantor and music teacher, and Bruce Lazaroff, a computer programmer. She graduated from the University of Hartford as an accomplished illustrator, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts and master’s degrees, and later completed a teaching certificate and a master’s in technology education. Jennifer has taught art in the Hartford public school system for ten years, and this September she will become Primary Visual Arts Teacher at Greater Path Academy, a magnet high school in Manchester.
Ken grew up in New York City, the son of Richard Semeraro Sr., Associate General Counsel and Director of Labor Relations at New York University for over thirty-five years, and Dana Stambaugh Semeraro, an arts administrator, having worked at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Grey Art Gallery at NYU, and Henri-Burton French Antiques in Greenwich. They moved to Mystic upon Richard’s retirement in 2004. Ken graduated from Grace Church School in New York City, and after serving in the Army he got his Bachelor of Science and master’s degrees from the University of New Haven. He then graduated from Case Western Reserve Law School and became an Attorney with the Brown Jacobson law firm in Norwich earlier this year.
The newly-weds had a week’s get-away of R&R in the Dominican Republic and are currently living in Manchester.
