This elegant summer wedding at the Four Seasons Boston was described by the bride as “formal fun”. Floral designer Carol Silverston went above and beyond with the gorgeous flowers and elegant decor, while the bride and groom’s infectious laughter and fun demeanor kept the energy of the entire day light and carefree.

Lauren and Ian both started their day in the Four Seasons Boston getting ready, before meeting on the hotel’s Grand Staircase for their first look. We took a short walk across the street to the Boston Public Garden for some photos with the couple before heading back to the Four Seasons for group pictures with the entire wedding party. For this traditional Jewish wedding, Lauren and Ian had a Ketubah signing before beginning the wedding ceremony. Lauren’s uncle officiated both ceremonies, keeping the bride and groom (and all of their guests) laughing and smiling the entire time. The wedding ceremony was held in the Four Seasons Governors Room under an elegant white Chuppah, where Lauren and Ian officially became husband and wife.

The Four Seasons Boston Ballroom was transformed by Carol Silverston and her team for the evening reception. Colors of classic white and dark blue were used throughout the day’s events, from the bridesmaid’s dresses through the cocktail hour decor, and this theme was continued into the evening. Carol used a beautiful mix of white linens, crystal chairs, modern glass-top tables, and white floral centerpieces with accents of dark blue in the Ballroom. An all-white dance floor and silver accents really made this event pop, and Lauren and Ian were blown away when they walked in for the first time.

Beyond the gorgeous decor, what really stood out about this wedding was the smiles and laughter that filled the entire day. Lauren and Ian performed a choreographed dance to kick off the reception (after only one night of practice) and guests packed the dance floor non-stop for the rest of the night. We were so happy to be here to celebrate this wonderful couple, special thanks to Lauren and Ian, Philip Deschamps and his team at the Four Seasons, and to Carol Silverston!

This summer seaside Belle Mer wedding came to us by way of the talented Carol Silverston of The Original Touch. In coordination with Jodi Raphael of Jodi Raphael Events, this team brought their A-game for NYC based couple Liz and Nick for their wedding day in Rhode Island.

Liz and Nick took full advantage of the elegant beauty of the Belle Mer — adding glitz and pops of summer color to this already amazing wedding venue. The wedding day started next door at Gurney’s Newport Hotel and Spa where the couple got ready with their wedding party. After the bride and groom had their first look at Belle Mer in front of the ivy wall,  we met up with the wedding party for formals with the stunning ocean backdrop.

As guests arrived at the Belle Mer, they passed through a custom entryway created by Carol, Jodi and their team. The white walkway, drapes, and tall floral arrangements looked out over the Belle Mer Lawn, ocean, and Newport bridge and served as a spot for guests to pose for photos and enjoy the gorgeous views. The wedding ceremony took place on the water, where Liz and Nick said their I do’s under the floral chuppah.

Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails on the lawn before moving into the Belle Mer’s Water Salon for the reception. The modern white space was accentuated with mirror-top tables, shimmering silver linens, and a mix of classic white and colorful pink, red, and purple floral arrangements. Guests packed the dance floor all evening long, and were even treated to a surprise fireworks show out on the waterfront after dinner. For Liz and Nick, what they wanted more than anything was to give their guests a fun and memorable night of celebration, and this beautiful summer Belle Mer wedding certainly delivered.

Special thanks to Carol, Jodi, Tahleen and the rest of their team as well as Ashly and her team at the Belle Mer. And of course a big thank you to Liz and Nick for letting us be a part of your wedding day!

Victoria and George are the kind of couple whose love and happiness radiates through the entire room. The two married in a beautiful fall wedding at the Four Seasons Boston, surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones. The entire celebration was elegant, romantic, and a perfect reflection of these two sparkling personalities.

The couple and their wedding parties started the day getting ready inside the Four Seasons Boston, with Victoria and George exchanging wedding gifts and cards before the whirlwind of the day began. The couple chose to have a first look and photo session before the traditional Catholic wedding ceremony, but they still wanted to preserve that feeling of the bride walking down the aisle. They asked their wedding party to help out, by lining the Four Seasons stairway with George waiting at the bottom. Victoria was walked down the stairs on her father’s arm, for a beautiful and intimate first look moment that was truly unique to the couple.

After the first look, we headed outside with the entire wedding party for some pre-ceremony photos. We could not have asked for a more perfect day — the sun was shining and the beautiful greenery and sparkling pond made a perfect backdrop for photos. Victoria and George said their “I do”s in a beautiful ceremony in St. Cecilia Parish, then it was time to head back to the Four Seasons Boston for the evening reception.

The couple chose an elegant color palette of soft blush and gold that matched perfectly with the Four Seasons Boston Ballroom, which included pops of dark pink and metallic sprinkled throughout the room. The arrangements featured flowers in white, blush, and pink with golden candle-holders adding a pop to the decor. Victoria and George lit up the room as they celebrated their special day surrounded by friends and family, ending the night with toasts, laughter, and dancing.

A big thank you to Jodi Raphael and her team and Philip Deschamps at the Four Seasons Boston for creating the perfect day for Victoria and George!

Just launched is the 2017 edition of Bliss Celebrataions magazine and we are excited to see the Fairmont Copley Plaza wedding of Kari and Evan grace the pages of this beautiful publication.

Thank you to Carol Silverston (The Original Touch) and Jodi Raphael (Jodi Raphael Events) and their teams for creating this stunning look and for always being a joy to work with!

“Modern Magnetism – A clean color palette of white and gold creates a feeling of refined glamour in the swanky hotel ballroom at The Fairmont Copley Plaza in Boston.

Kari had always loved the pure elegance of an all-white wedding with the richness of added gold accents. She knew this sophisticated combination was exactly what she wanted and so the planning began. Venue selection was simple since she fell in love instantly with the gilded, old-world architecture of the ballroom at The Fairmont Copley Plaza and knew it could be juxtaposed with modern décor. The combined talents of Jodi Raphael Events and Carol Silverston brought Kari’s vision to life. Long mirrored tables were adorned with pure white flora and glistening candles. Round tables surrounded by Lucite chairs were decorated with cascading orchids in tall crystal vases. Jodi and Carol were both amazing to work with. I had a distinct look and high expectations for how the décor would turn out and the result was flawless,” gushed Kari.”

Person + Killian Photography Real Wedding Feature in Bliss Celebrations magazine – The Fairmont Copley Plaza wedding of Kari + Evan

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!

Shelley and Spencer wanted a riverfront Boston wedding that would truly capture the essence of this beautiful city. The Royal Sonesta Boston, with it’s scenic views of the famed Charles River was the perfect venue to grant that wish. We were thrilled to join the couple and their guests for their celebration!

Before the ceremony, the couple decided to have a moment to themselves. This touching moment took place outside, down by the Charles. Shelley looked stunning and elegant in her James Clifford lace gown. The scenic Boston city skyline was a breathtaking backdrop for their formal portraits. Taking advantage of the sunny and warm weather, the couple were joined by the wedding party for some formal and fun photo opportunities.

Under an intricate floral chuppah, featuring mixed fresh flowers and draping vines, Shelley and Spencer were wed  in a traditional and moving Jewish ceremony.

The Grand Ballroom was aglow in candle light, illuminating the modern floral touches and elegant stemware that sparkled throughout the room. With romantic twinkle lights setting the mood, the newlyweds had their first dance, before their guests joined in with an enthusiastic Hora!

Thank you to Jim Arnello, his talented team at the Royal Sonesta, and Carol Silverston of the Original Touch for coordinating this gorgeous event. Congratulations and Mazel Tov Shelley and Spencer!

When you combine the beautiful spaces and top notch service at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston with the designs of Carol Silverston, it is sure to be a spectacular celebration. We recently had the pleasure of capturing a surprise 60th birthday celebration – “0 to 60 in a flash”. Carol and her team at the Original touch as well as the team of Jodi Raphael Events created the perfect atmosphere for the guest of honor and 80+ friends and family.

The Entryway to the ballroom was filled with blue balloons and an ice sculpture of a classic race car and a mix of black, white and silver geometric linen. The theme was carried into the ballroom with a custom Porsche bar, 2 black, white and silver sitting lounges with sleek modern designs. The blue leather tables were topped with a combination of cascading white floral arrangements and crystal candle holders.

Below are some of the images of this gorgeous celebration. A big thank you to Philip and the team at the Four Seasons for always being so wonderful to work with and to Carol, Jodi and their team for having us there to capture such a beautiful celebration for this sweet and fun family.

Four Seasons Hotel Boston Event Photography | 60th Birthday Celebration with Carol Silverston – Photography by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street, Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

This holiday season we had the pleasure of photographing the Royal Sonesta Boston winter wedding of Emily and Marc. Following their first look in hotel, we headed outside for photos of the couple along the Charles River. Even in the winter, the view of the city  makes for a picture perfect backdrop overlooking the Boston skyline.

After spending some time with the couple and their wedding party, we headed back inside the Royal Sonesta for the fun and emotional Ketubah signing followed by their traditional Jewish ceremony. The Ballroom was transformed into the perfect and intimate setting by Carol Silverston’s lighting, decor and florals.

When we asked the couple what was important to them on their wedding day they mentioned laughter, celebration and excitement with their closest family and friends as the most important elements of the day. That was exactly the day they had from the getting ready through the end of the evening. Emily chose the color gold as the focal point for the decor, and their beautiful reception was glowing with warm lighting, gold linens and candles, and a sense of holiday spirit. The couple shared their first dance and an energetic hora before enjoying heartfelt toasts and an evening celebration of dancing with their friends and family.

As always, a big thank you to the fantastic team at the Royal Sonesta and to Carol Silverston, Jodi Raphael and their team for always creating such a beautiful atmosphere for us to capture. Congratulations Emily and Marc and thank you for being so fun to work with throughout your beautiful wedding day!

Royal Sonesta Boston Winter Wedding with Florals, Design and Decor by Carol Silverston– Photographed by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

We were so excited when we got the phone call from Lindsay + Greg for this wedding — we had worked with Lindsay’s family a few years ago, and we could not wait to reconnect for another wonderful event! This time around it was a gorgeous summer wedding at the Boston Public Library, and we had a blast celebrating with this fun and adorable couple.

We started the weekend at the rehearsal dinner Friday night, which took place at the Downtown Harvard Club of Boston. The dinner had a fun, seaside flair with classic white and blue decor, and beautiful floral centerpieces featuring seashells, starfish, and natural drift wood by Carol Silverston. We rejoined the bride and groom the next morning where everyone got ready at the beautiful Fairmont Copley Plaza right in the heart of Copley Square. Once they were ready to go we made the short walk across the street to the Boston Public Library.

The afternoon ceremony took place out in the stunning Boston Public Library Courtyard, which features lush summer greenery and a beautiful fountain right in the center. The bride and groom decided not to see each other before the walk down the aisle, and we loved seeing Greg’s face when he finally saw his bride! After the I Do’s, which took place under a gorgeous Chuppah, we took the newlyweds inside for some family formals on the Boston Public Library’s grand staircase. While the rest of the guests and bridal party enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, we took Lindsay and Greg around the library for photos of just the two of them.

The evening reception took place in the Library’s Guastavino Room, which was transformed with modern mirror-top tables, white and silver linens, and a mix of black and clear chairs around each. Carol Silverston of The Original Touch created the beautiful decor and floral designs, which included  mixes of towering white and pink arrangements on each table for a wonderful pop of color. A patterned wash of cool blue and purple light gave the room a bright and colorful glow, which looked amazing on the black dance floor.

The bride and groom had so much fun and it was contagious throughout the night! Guests enjoyed their first dance (concluding with a fast choreographed portion that got everyone cheering), as well as toasts from friends and family before hitting the dance floor, packing into the photo booth, and having an absolute blast with the happy couple. The after party moved into the Boston Public Library’s Map Room and Cafe, that included a ping pong table, corn hole and giant Jenga.

We could not have been happier to share this day with Lindsay, Greg, and their wonderful families. Special thanks to the entire Catered Affair Team at the Boston Public Library, as well as Carol Silverston, Jodi Raphael and their team for such a wonderful event.

Alexandra and Christopher were an all-around adorable couple, and their beautiful Four Seasons Hotel Boston Wedding was elegant, traditional, celebratory, and — most of all — fun!

Alex wore a stunning strapless wedding gown and carried a bouquet of classic white flowers included roses, peonies, and long white calla lilies all bundled together with lace from her mother’s vail. Her bridal party carried simple white rose bouquets and wore elegant navy blue dresses to perfectly compliment the bride! Alex + Chris had their “first look” at the top of the Four Seasons Hotel Boston grand staircase, and the groom’s expression upon seeing his bride for the first time was one in a million. We took some quick photos with Alex + Chris on the elegant staircase, before heading across the street to the Boston Public Garden for some outdoor Photos.

When we came back to the Four Seasons, we were met by Alex + Chris’ closest friends and family to do all of their formal wedding photography. The bride and groom chose to do all of their formal photos before the wedding ceremony, so they would be able to join their guests at cocktail hour following the wedding! We finished up the family photos, Alex + Chris’ signed their Ketubah (a traditional Jewish wedding document), and it was time for the ceremony. Alex + Chris said their “I dos” underneath a stunning white Chuppah in the Four Seasons Boston’s Governor’s Room. The Chuppah was adorned with white orchids, and two large white rose arrangements stood on either side of the aisle.

The bride and groom got a sneak-peek of the ballroom before the reception began — it was beautiful with classic white ballroom chairs and a mix of white and silver linens. The tables featured a blend of low white rose floral arrangements, and tall centerpieces with a gorgeous pop of red flowers to accent the room. The ballrooms natural color was accented with soft candlelight that gave the space a warm, intimate glow.

We were so thrilled to share this day with a truly wonderful bride and groom — thank you for being so happy, easy-going, and fun! Special thanks to Philip Deschamps at the Four Seasons Hotel Boston, Carol Silverston -The Original Touch and Jodi Raphael Events  for a truly beautiful event. Congratulations Alex + Chris!

Sarah + John’s beautifully classic Four Seasons Hotel Boston wedding combined traditional Boston elegance with a touch of fun summer flair for a really special and unforgettable evening. With the design and floral expertise of Carol Silverston of The Original Touch and the immaculate coordination of the Four Seasons Boston’s Philip Deschamps, each detail was stunning, fun, and perfectly executed!

Sarah + John combined classic wedding colors of white, gold, and pearl with fun pops of navy throughout their design and decor. Sarah wore a beautiful asymmetrical wedding gown paired with navy blue  heels and a soft white bouquet.

We did the couple’s first look on the Four Seasons elegant grand staircase, followed by a few quick photographs of the smiling bride and groom inside the hotel. From there we headed across the street for some wedding formals in the Boston Public Garden. The weather was perfect for a summer wedding, and we had plenty of time to get pictures of the whole wedding party in the Garden as well as some romantic summer shots of Sarah + John alone prior to the ceremony.

The traditional Catholic wedding ceremony took place at the historic Cathedral of the Holy Cross in downtown Boston — one of our favorite Boston wedding ceremony venues. Following the vows, it was back to the Four Seasons  for cocktails in the ballroom foyer. The wedding reception in the ballroom was fresh, summery, and elegant, with bright white linens and beautiful pearl-colored ballroom chairs. The clear glass charger plates were lined with a touch of gold, and the floral centerpieces mixed classic white blossoms with pops of green, pink, and purple. Sarah + John had two wedding cakes — a classic and elegant tiered cake topped with white roses for the couple, and a fun golf-themed cake just for the groom. Overall it was a beautiful summer Four Seasons Hotel Boston wedding, and we loved being able to share it with the happy newlyweds and their family.

Special thanks to Carol Silverston and Philip Deschamps for always being so wonderful to work with! Congratulations Sarah + John!!

It’s not often we get to photograph an entire Mitzvah celebration — morning service and all — but this past Sunday afternoon Jacob’s Bar Mitzvah was a welcome exception!

Person + Killian Photography had a great time with Jacob and his whole family at this event, which began at the Congregation Kehillath Israel in Brookline with a tradition morning service, followed by a reception luncheon at the temple. Everything ran smoothly and looked gorgeous thanks to Carol Silverston and Jodi Raphael Events who did all of the planning and floral design for the celebration. After a short afternoon break, the evening dinner party kicked off a few hours later at Bella Luna Restaurant in Jamaica Plain.  Klass Universal Entertainment kept kids dancing all night!

Thanks to Jacob and the whole family for a great day, and for letting Person + Killian be a part of it! Below are some of the highlights from Jacob’s big day:

Ceremony and Luncheon Reception Venue: Congregation Kehillath Israel in Brookline; Event coordination, decor and florals by Carol Silverston; Additional Event Coordination by Jodi Raphael Events; Catering: Catering by Andrew; Evening Reception: Bella Luna Restaurant in Jamaica Plain; Reception Entertainment: Klass Universal Entertainment
