It’s been 17 years of photographing weddings full-time. To this day, there is no bigger honor than being asked by friends in the Boston wedding industry to capture their personal milestone events. The wedding of Kaitlin and Jonathan was no exception. We have had the pleasure of working with Kaitlin and her twin sister Kelby many times over the years when they worked with their extraordinary mom Lynne (Lynne Enos Events). So many industry legends whom I have looked up to for many years came out to celebrate this amazing couple.

The Boston fall wedding took place on a gorgeous November day at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Before the first look with Jonathan, Kaitlin had a first look with her parents and bridesmaids in their suite. We spent the next couple of hours taking photographs of Kaitlin, Jon and their wedding party as the sun set and the harbor-side lights came on in the picture perfect setting.

The wedding ceremony took place in the North Atlantic room in the hotel and was exactly what Kaitlin had envisioned – a warm and romantic setting filled with candles, white orchards and a string quartet from Music Management. Linda Matzkin and Abby Gordon (284 Wedding and Events) were on site as guests but also to make sure the events of the day went off without a hitch.

The combined talents of Boston wedding royalty (all close family friends of the couple) created the perfect reception look for the couple in the Wharf Room – Domenic Cambio’s flowers (Domenic Cambio Studios), Suzanne Lowell (SBL Lighting), Danny Parker (Tommy Wholesale), Honey Palakavong (Lotus Floral Events) and Ted Daniels (Boston Harbor Hotel). Chris Cole and the Kahootz Band kept people on the dance floor all night. In addition to Kaitlin loving lots of color, she also loves Christmas. One of the highlights of the night was when Kahootz surprised everyone by playing one of Kaitlin’s favorite Christmas songs and Suzanne and the SBL Lighting team added to the excitement with confetti canons that went off over the dance floor creating an unforgettable moment in the night (and a great photo op)!

A big congratulations to Kaitlin and Jonathan and to the entire team that helped make the wedding of their dreams come to fruition!!!

Boston Fall Wedding of Kaitlin and Jonathan by Person + Killian Photography

It was a gorgeously sunny fall day in Boston (and the last day of the year before the clocks turned back). Blue skies above, blue waters out on the Boston Seaport, and two wonderful people ready to say “I do”.

This Boston Harbor Hotel wedding gave us everything we need on a stunning fall day. We loved the deep, rich colors of forest green and navy blue from the wedding party, paired with simple white bouquets. The waterfront right outside the Boston Harbor hotel made for the perfect backdrop for Catherine and James’ first look, and for portraits with the whole family. The warm fall light was just unbeatable, especially as it poured in through the Boston Harbor Hotel’s classic outdoor archway.

It was a short trip around the corner and over the bridge to Our Lady of Good Voyage for the wedding ceremony. Catherine and James were wed in a full Catholic Mass, as the last bits of the evening sun illuminated the stained glass above the altar. Following the ceremony, it was back to the Boston Harbor Hotel for the celebration to begin! We swapped sunlight for candlelight, as the Wharf Room was lit up by candelabra chandeliers and table-top tea candles. Before ending the night, we had to take the newlyweds back out to the waterfront for just a few more photos. The dark water and sparkling city lights beyond made for the perfect ending to this perfect fall wedding day.

Big thank you’s to Catherine and James, and to Ted Daniels and his entire team at the Boston Harbor Hotel!

The summer days are waning, but they aren’t gone yet! The bride for this gorgeous summer Boston wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel described the inspiration as “enchanted forest”. An abundance of greenery, soft white flowers, and gold details made this a lush and luxurious celebration to remember.

Becca and Dan’s Boston wedding is what we affectionately like to call a “Jewish(ish)” wedding. Much of the wedding ceremony took from Becca’s Jewish roots — with a traditional Ketubah signing and vows under a chuppah. The Rabbi made everyone in the room feel included by explaining all of the prayers, blessings, and traditions as Becca and Dan became husband and wife. At the reception, guests participated in a Motzi (blessing of the bread and wine), traditional Hora, and a Krenzel dance for the parents of the bride. This is a celebration of parents who have just seen their last child get married! Dan and his family’s Irish roots were celebrated with a traditional Irish song and dance for all the guests to enjoy on the dance floor.

The Boston Harbor Hotel made for a perfect venue for this celebration. The colors of green, white, and seafoam were a perfect match for the Boston waterfront right outside, and gold detailing throughout the decor added a stunning touch of elegance. We loved being a part of this gorgeous Boston wedding celebration — special thanks to Becca and Dan, to Jodi Raphael and her entire team, and to Michael and everyone at the Boston Harbor Hotel!

For a summer wedding in Boston there is nothing quite like being out on Boston Harbor. Victoria and Yoni, affectionately referred to by friends and family as “Yontoria”, chose the Boston Harbor Hotel for their wedding celebration. They took full advantage of the gorgeous indoor spaces as well as the Boston Harbor right outside for all aspects of their wedding day.

From getting ready in the hotel suites to the wedding ceremony in the ballroom, there were so many places for celebration.  The waterfront, the boats, and of course the classic grand archway were all perfect places for formal photos of the family and romantic photos of the bride and groom.

Throughout the entire day, what stood out more than anything else was Victoria and Yoni’s fun-loving spirits, and their joy at being able to celebrate with their friends and family. It was a day full of love and laughter, and we were so thankful to be there to capture it all.

Special thank you to to Ted Daniels and his team at the Boston Harbor Hotel, to Jodi Raphael of Jodi Raphael Events, and of course to Victoria and Yoni! Mazel Tov!

The 2019 event season has officially started! Our first event of the year was the grand opening reception of the 30th Annual Boston Wine Festival — including the VIP pre-reception with a very special group of winemakers and the who’s who of Boston. The event, held at the Boston Harbor Hotel was founded by their Executive Chef Daniel Bruce.

The VIP festivities began in the brand new 4,800 square foot John Adams Presidential Suite with sweeping views of the Boston Harbor.  Guests enjoyed a welcome toast from Chef Daniel Bruce himself, as well as from Managing Director & General Manager of the Boston Harbor Hotel Stephen Johnston. Special guests included top winemaker Anthony Hamilton Russell (all the way from South Africa) and NBC Boston’s TV presenter and local DJ Colton Bradford. And of course, there was wine! The main celebration took place in the hotel’s newly renovated Wharf Room where nearly 400 guests were able to sample over 50 varieties of wine featured in this year’s festival, expertly paired with Chef’s own culinary creations.

We could not have thought of a better way to start off the new year, and are looking forward to a fantastic year of weddings and events in 2019! A very special thank you to the whole team at the Boston Harbor Hotel for having us there to capture the evening.

A classic blue and white wedding on the Boston seaside gets a fun twist with gold detailing and colorful pops of pink. This Boston Harbor Hotel summer wedding was the perfect mix of nautical elegance and summer fun, making for a truly unique and special day of celebration. All of the day’s events took place at the Boston Harbor Hotel — starting in the Hotel’s Admiral Suite where Courtney and her bridal party got ready. Both the bride and groom had gorgeous views of the city, the Greenway, and the Boston Harbor below while they prepared for the day.

We took Courtney and Brian outside to the waterfront for their first look, and stayed out for some formal photos of the couple around the Hotel and in front of the beautiful Boston Harbor. We were joined by the wedding party for group formals on the waterfront, their light blue dresses and navy blue suits matched perfectly with the seaside vibes of the Boston Harbor Hotel. We took Courtney and Brian across the street to the Rose Kennedy Greenway for a few more formal photos outside before heading back to the Boston Harbor Hotel to begin the ceremony.

The ceremony was held in the Boston Harbor Hotel Wharf Room, which was accented with gold and white chairs, white drapes, and pink summer flowers. The couple incorporated a few elements of Jewish tradition into their ceremony, with a gorgeous white floral Chuppah overlooking the Harbor right outside. Guests moved to the Wharf Foyer for cocktails following the ceremony, while the Wharf Room was transformed for the evening reception. The venue’s existing blue and white color scheme was accented by white linens, navy blue menu cards and gold and soft white lounge seating. The room was lit with gentle pink uplighting and accented with bright pink summer bouquets and a few shimmers of gold for a really unique twist on a classic color palette. As the sun began to set we headed outside for a few more photographs of Courtney and Brian along the beautiful waterfront, then it was back into the party to celebrate all night with family and friends.

Special thanks to Jodi and her team at Jodi Raphael Events and to Ted Daniels and his wonderful team at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Congratulations Courtney and Brian!
