Even though Blair and Jon now live out in Washington DC, these two Boston natives decided to come back home for their beautiful Boston Public Library Wedding!

We were excited to be able to photograph not only the wedding day itself, but the rehearsal dinner the night before on the Rooftop of the Taj Boston.

The next day we met up with both Blair and Jon at the lovely Fairmont Copley Plaza and then made the short walk across the street to the Boston Public Library, in the heart of downtown Boston’s Copley Square. At the center of the Library itself is a gorgeous outdoor Courtyard, lined with summer greens and flowers. Blair and Jon decided to have their ceremony out here, and the late summer weather held out perfectly for them. The reception took place inside the Library, with dinner being served in the stunning Bates Hall, and dancing taking place in the more intimate Abbey Room.

Because the Boston Public Library is already such an ornately decorated space in its architecture alone, Blair and Jon wanted to keep their decor simple, elegant and romantic. They added tones of white, cream, and champagne to compliment the space, rather than compete with it. Overall they wanted their entire wedding to be classic and traditional, so that “30 years from now, we would still love it!”.

Congratulations Blair and Jon, and thank you for being so fantastic to work with!

Praise from the Bride – Person + Killian photographed both my wedding and rehearsal dinner, and the pictures are amazing!!!! I received the first “teaser” while on my honeymoon, and literally started jumping up and down with excitement. Once the wedding is over, the photos are the only real memories/proof that you have that it really happened, and Lauren Killian captured the entire weekend perfectly. Aside from the pictures, the experience of working with Lauren was also amazing. She was so professional and made me feel comfortable throughout the weekend, which to me was priceless (she even helped take my veil out!) While I am sure there are plenty of great photographers in the area, working with Person + Killian is a guarantee for fabulous pictures and a calming presence on a day where those are the two things you want more than anything!
