Boston Weddings and Events Person + Killian Photography Wedding Season Custom USB Flash Drives

While still looking back on the 2019 wedding and event season (and incredible decade of events), it’s also exciting looking forward to the upcoming year ahead. This time of year it’s all about gearing up for the 2020 season with new couples and destinations. In addition to working at some of our favorite wedding and event venues in Boston and Cape Cod this year, we’ll also be traveling to several new places ranging from Portland, Maine to the Catskills of New York.

The next couple of weeks will be filled with website updates, equipment cleaning and getting organized for the wedding and events that lie ahead. A big thank you to USB Memory Direct for partnering with us in the new year and creating new custom flash drives for 2020!

Boston Weddings and Events - Person + Killian Photography Wedding Season Custom Wooden USB Flash Drives


Boston Weddings and Events – Gearing up for the 2020 Season with new custom wholesale flash drives by USB Memory Direct made for Person + Killian Photography

“On Tuesday, April 24, 2018, Boston Planner’s Dining Club launched at Catalyst Restaurant in Cambridge. Founded by Tammy Golson of Tammy Golson Events and Sarah Glick of Brilliant Event Planning, Boston Planners Dining Club is a private group of some of Boston’s best wedding planners. The mission of The Boston Planners Dining Club is to foster community and camaraderie among wedding planners in Boston, while experiencing venues and vendors’ talents and services first hand.

Catalyst Restaurant not only showcased their gorgeous event space, but also delighted guests with an impressive menu created by Chef William Kovel. Marc Hall Design brought Spring to Boston with their bright florals inspired by Fete Collection’s watercolor design. This design was featured on the custom bar by PBD Events, as well as on the hand-stitched menus that Fete created. The live music by Speechless was the perfect soundtrack for the evening and Party Rental Ltd provided all of the rentals. The entire evening was captured by Jill Person of Person + Killian Photography and George Horemiotis of SH Videography.” – Boston Magazine

“As we enlisted the team of Boston wedding professionals for our first Boston Planners Dining Club,  we encouraged each team member to create something they were genuinely excited about. We challenged them to think big, be creative and deliver something never before seen, that would impress our seasoned and esteemed wedding planning colleagues. It was a collaborative process inspired by the original watercolor design Fete Collection created for the menu cards. Marc Hall Design pulled the oranges and yellows from this pattern for the floral design on the tables and Party by Design replicated this watercolor design and created our bespoke bar.

With accents of orange, a nod to the juxtapose of the spring we’ve had in New England, the big blooms were beautifully offset with accents of gray introduced in the linen napkins and smokey chargers. An underlined urban vibe was built by the use of industrial tables topped with white plexiglass and black flatware. The frosted votives were paired with the vellum overlay of the menus, which were hand-stitched with orange thread. The tiny gold salt and pepper shakers were a sweet compliment to the gorgeous gold on the hand-painted place cards marking each guest’s seat at our long dramatically long table.” – Tammy Golson of Tammy Golson Events and Sarah Glick of Brilliant Event Planning

A big thank you to Tammy and Sarah for including Person + Killian in such a special evening and to Sara and William Kovel and their entire team at Catalyst!

We always love photographing events that support a good cause. Art beCause is a wonderful organization whose mission is to educate the public on breast cancer causes and prevention, and we were honored to have photographed their 2017 Art beCause Celebrity Fashion Show.

This year’s annual event was hosted at the beautiful Wellesley Country Club, and featured delicious hors d’oeuvres, a fundraising live auction, and a lively fashion show starring some of our very own Boston celebrities!

Emcees Gretta Monahan and Robert Verdi kept the crowd entertained all night, with help from Kiss 108’s DJ Rich DiMare mixing the tunes. The Art beCause Celebrity Fashion show featured some of Boston’s top news anchors, TV hosts, and radio personalities including 7News Meteorologist Chris Lambert and Miss Massachusetts Julia Scaparotti. Also walking in the fashion show were four models who were breast cancer survivors, showing just how important the work of Art beCause is! All of the money raised at this event is used to fund research and awareness for the prevention of breast cancer.

We were honored to be a part of this wonderful event, and to help share the message of Art beCause’s important work. Special thanks to Joanie Freidman and Art beCause for having us!

What do you get when you mix a gorgeous Boston event venue, stunning black and metallic decor, delicious food, industry friends, and four of the top event rental companies in Boston? The official industry launch of PEAK Event Services — which we had the pleasure of photographing last week at The Castle at Park Plaza.

Four well known rental companies in Boston have joined forces to create one fabulous event rental company. Rentals Unlimited, Peterson Party Center, Table Toppers of Newton, and RESERVE Modern Event Rental have just launched as the brand new PEAK Event Services. With all of these spectacular companies under one name, you know the official industry launch was going to be an event to remember!

Suzanne B Lowell and her lighting crew worked alongside the PEAK team to transform The Castle at Park Plaza into an elegant black and metallic oasis, with golden chairs and tables, metallic lounge furniture, and a perfect black dance floor underneath a suspended illusion tent made of lights. Candles flickered, disco lights sparkled, and everyone was ready to party.

We joined 700 of the industry’s finest to celebrate this exciting company launch, complete with hors d’oeuvres and food stations from Gourmet Catering and special food stations from Lydia Shire, Ostra and Boston Chops. Music from Entertainment Specialists’ DJ Mike Amado and Boston Funk and disco band Booty Vortex added the perfect touch to the lively atmosphere.

We are so proud of our industry colleagues for this exciting new venture, and very thankful to be given the opportunity to photograph such a spectacular event. A special thank you to PEAK Event Services and congratulations on the official launch!

Hearing the story of Kari and Evan, you can’t help but think it was always meant to be.  This white and gold ballroom wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza has an air of kismet and sophistication that was absolutely beautiful. From a humble blind date set up between two mutual friends, and some perseverance on Evan’s behalf, this is one tight-knit group (we even shot Kari’s sisters wedding back in 2014).

This September wedding began in the bridal suite where the women were gathered getting ready and sharing stories and bubbly. The bride wore a strapless Isabelle Armstrong gown with a sweetheart neckline.  Her bouquet, a white, slightly-asymmetrical bouquet full of textural flowers, completed the look. The men wore Armani Collezioni tuxes with bowties to complement the shimmering floor-length gold dresses the ladies were wearing.

It was important to the couple to be able to spend some dedicated time capturing photos. We carved out a nice block of time in the afternoon prior to the ceremony so that we could accomplish these wonderful shots. The couple opted to have their First Look just out front of the Fairmont Copley. Taking advantage of the historic backdrop Copley Square has to offer, we visited the steps of the Boston Public Library and the Trinity Church taking pictures as we went.

The couple worked with the collaborative team of Carol Silverston – The Original Touch and Jodi Raphael Events.  With the bride’s keen eye, she described the wedding as having “a romantic elegance with a slightly modern twist… to incorporate many different textures within the decor and a wide variety of flower types to add dimension, with touches of shine, mirrors, and candles to emulate a clean and sophisticated look”. We love shooting what this masterful team accomplished.

A custom built chuppah anchored the Oval Room where the traditional Jewish ceremony took place. Warm lighting and glowing candles set the romantic tone of the evening ahead.  A white runner accented with rose petals lead to the wedding canopy. It was draped in flowing fabric and a dense layer of flowers.

Before the guests entered the reception space, the couple took a moment to peek at Ballroom and squeeze in a quick turn on the dance floor. From the white and gold five-tiered wedding cake to the classic lounge furniture and white monogrammed dance floor, the space was full of romantic elegance.

As the night progressed from dinner and toasts to dancing and dessert, we loved every second of capturing this day! Thank you to the couple and their family for having Person + Killian capture another special day for their family. A special thank you to the team of vendors orchestrating this beautiful day. It’s always a pleasure to work with Tracey Gavin at the Fairmont Copley, Carol Silverston, Jodi Raphael and their teams!
