About 20 miles north of the hustle and bustle of Boston sits the Tupper Manor; a gorgeous estate with elegant halls, stunning architecture, and sprawling green lawns. For Miami-based couple Molly and Andrew, the Tupper Manor was the perfect place to celebrate their northeast roots.

We were sent this wonderful couple from our friend Edna Dratch Parker, who is also a family friend of the bride. Edna and coordinator Kasie Blanchette (owners of EFD Creative) assembled an absolute A-team for this summer wedding. The team was made up almost entirely of Boston Wedding Group members — including invites, flowers, cake, venue, planning, hair, makeup, rental, photo and video!

Molly and Andrew put their absolute trust in us and all of their wedding team. They chose details of white, peach, and soft pink to complement the elegance of the Tupper Manor and the summer season. They even let us take them outside in a 100 degree heat wave for some stunning first look photos and wedding party formals. Molly and Andrew were easy-going and fun-loving; and that energy translated to the entire wedding day. From the sunny late afternoon wedding ceremony to the evening reception — even Molly’s sister jumped in and sang a song with the band that got everyone up out of their seats and onto the dance floor!

Huge thank you to Edna, Kasie at EFD Creative for sending this wonderful couple our way. And special thanks to Molly and Andrew for a beautiful and memorable wedding day full of love and laughter!

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of photographing the Fairmont Copley Plaza Boston wedding of Natalie and John. The bride chose a beautiful fall color scheme with a focus on eggplant and ivory hues.

The traditional Catholic Mass took place in Brighton. The bride chose florals that would compliment the eggplant floor-length bridesmaids dresses and had purple and white flowers lining the aisle. After the ceremony the guests headed back to The Fairmont Copley Plaza for cocktails in the Venetian Room to celebrate with the newlyweds.

For the reception, guests moved into the beautiful Oval Room. Following the first dance, dinner and father daughter dance, the Groom’s Lebanese cultural traditional of  the money dance brought guests to their feet to open the dance floor during the mother son dance. Boston based band Kahootz kept everyone on their feet for the rest of the celebration.

Thank you to the Fairmont team for always being so great to work with and a big thank you and congratulations to Natalie and John for being to wonderful and fun to capture throughout their wedding day! Fairmont Copley Plaza Fall Wedding NJ 001

Last weekend, we had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Melissa and Bill at the beautiful Taj Boston in the city’s Back Bay!

The wedding ceremony took place at the Marsh Chapel, on the campus of Boston University. The chapel had special significance to Melissa and Bill as they got engaged in the Chapel’s outdoor courtyard. Melissa carried a beautiful bouquet of soft pink peonies as she walked down the aisle, for a perfect pop of spring color. After the ceremony, we stayed on the campus for some pictures around the chapel with friends and family before heading to the Taj Boston to start the party.

Melissa and Bill wanted their wedding to have the feeling of classic “Boston”. The dining room (overlooking the Public Garden and Newbury Street) at the Taj was the perfect venue for an elegant, romantic Boston wedding. The room was warm and intimate with golden champagne linens, and multi-toned pink peonies filling the centerpieces. Even their white wedding cake was covered in the soft pink flowers, adding a great splash of color to the Taj Boston ballroom. We loved the couple’s puzzle guest book where friends and family left messages on the back of puzzle pieces for Melissa and Bill. The front of the puzzle was their favorite photo from their engagement session.

Everyone was so happy to be celebrating this great couple, thank you to the newlyweds for letting us be a part of your special day.

Boston has always been a special place for Shannon & Terry. Their very first date was at a Red Sox game, and when it came time to propose Terry popped the question on Swan Pond in the Boston Public Garden!  So it only made sense that they would have a destination wedding in Boston to celebrate their love for each other, and for this wonderful city.

We joined Shannon before the wedding as she got ready at The Harvard Club of Boston, before heading out to St. William’s Church in Tewksbury, MA for the ceremony. Shannon’s bridesmaids wore dark navy blue dresses with bright pink heels for a fun pop of color. Even Shannon herself switched between 3 different shoe styles throughout the day — two sparkly pink pairs of Kate Spades and a hot pink pair of boots for outdoor shots! After the ceremony we braved the cold and returned to Boston to get some photos in the Boston Public Garden, then headed back to the Harvard Club to start the party.

The wedding reception was a beautiful winter wonderland theme, with lots of white and silver accents throughout the decor — perfect for this time of year. Most of the wedding guests had traveled from out of town to celebrate this destination wedding in Boston with Shannon & Terry, and it was a perfect ending to a real Boston love story!

Congratulations Shannon & Terry, thank you for letting us be a part of your beautiful wedding celebration!

Local event rental company Peterson Party Center loves showcasing the talent of all the Boston vendors they get to work with! Every month, they select a team of Boston wedding professionals to put together a gorgeous table — their “Table of the Month”, which we were thrilled to be able to photograph.

This December, event planner Edna Dratch-Parker of EFD Creative teamed with Jeri Solomon Floral Design and Megan Chapin Calligraphy to put together this picturesque winter-themed table! The designers were able to browse Peterson’s new showroom and use anything they wanted to create their masterpiece.

This table combined deep red linens with festive chargers for a bold, elegant look. Snowflake details on each place setting and a towering ice-inspired centerpiece tied together the winter theme, perfect for the month of December. “I was going for a classic and elegant holiday theme with a bit of sparkle!” – Edna

Thank you to Peterson Party Center and all the talented Boston wedding professionals who helped put this table together, we love being able to photograph your stunning work!

Kerry and Kurt live in China so they got a chance to stop by the Person + Killian studio when they were in town choosing all their vendors for their Hampshire House Boston wedding! They had a busy weekend of meetings and found the time to meet with us! On the referral of their wedding planner Edna Dratch-Parker (EFD Creative – Event Planning & Design), they came to our office and Lauren instantly loved them. Both seemed to be easy going, full of expression and obviously in love! They were so enjoyable to meet and we knew they would be a pleasure to work with.

The small intimate wedding was held at the lovely Hampshire House on Boston’s Beacon Hill and the couple chose a snowflake theme. They incorporated blue, ice and silver throughout the elegant affair.

A big thank you to Edna for being so fantastic to work with. You certainly put together a beautiful affair and we were honored to be a part of it! Congratulations to Kerry & Kurt and thank you for trusting P+K to document this important day!

* This post is filed under Boston wedding venues and Photographers. A winter Wedding at the Hampshire house Boston photographed by Person + Killian Photography.

Person + Killian Photography had the opportunity to once again photograph a wedding at the Boston Public Library for the wedding of Becky and Ari. The BPL, once a hidden jewel, is now the site of some of Boston’s most magnificent weddings thanks to the team at The Catered Affair. This was certainly the case for the newlyweds who utilized the picturesque space for all of the festivities of their day including formal photos atop the grand marble staircase.

The ceremony took place in the Courtyard Restaurant where Becky and Ari exchanged vows (along with lots of smiles and laughter) under the beautiful chuppah designed by Jeri Solomon Floral Designs.  From there it was cocktails in both the Map Room and the courtyard.

The festivities continued for the reception, which took place in the library’s Popular Reading Room. The couple and their guests wined, dined and danced the night away to the live performances from Java Jive. A couple of the guests even got involved with the band. One guest played a few songs on the trumpet and later in the evening there was a spectacular song performance from a family member that left everyone in awe.

Congratulations Becky and Ari! We had a fantastic time capturing your day that was full of wonderful moments throughout.
