Laura and Mike wanted to capture a winter wonderland for their January wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. Little did they know they would have an actual snow filled day from start to finish. Because this was a destination wedding for the couple who live in DC, almost all of their guests were already staying in the hotel. This meant everyone could enjoy watching the snow from the comfort of the beautiful hotel as it fell in Copley Square. We were beyond thrilled when Laura asked us to take her and Mike outside for some photos of the two of them. We even headed back out with the wedding party who were all great sports so that we could capture some fun shots with the group and it was well worth it!

Laura and Mike chose to incorporate the gold throughout the venue and mix in blush tones for their color pallet. In addition, everything including the flowers, styles, food, venue was inspired by Laura’s love of France. The traditional Jewish ceremony took place in the Oval Room under a gorgeous chuppah designed by Lotus Floral Events and lit perfectly by Suzanne B. Lowell and her team at Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design.

Following the ceremony, guests continued the celebration into the night in the ballroom. Planner and coordinator Janie Haas and her team at  Janie Haas Events created the perfect look for Laura and Mike.  From Janie: “Instead of using whites and silvers on the round tables, we opted to use a heavy gorgeous silvery green/gray embroidered fabric on the round tables which were accented with creamy flowers with high white branches. While the fast falling snow outside cooperated with the look that we were trying to achieve inside, our goal was to bring the feeling of romance and dreaminess into the ballroom. Suzanne’s lighting was magical as it lit crystals in both the centerpieces and the stage.”

Congratulations Laura and Mike. We are absolutely thrilled to have had the chance to start off 2017 with such a fantastic group! A big thank you to Alice Fay and her team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza and to Janie, Maria and the team at Janie Haas Events!

Fairmont Copley Hotel Winter Wedding with Janie Haas Events by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662 – [email protected] / [email protected]

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of working with Jen and Adam for their State Room Boston Wedding. The team at Janie Haas Events worked with the couple to create the perfect day that was exactly what the couple had asked for “a rustic, whimsical classic look that is also fun and very us.”

The couple both got ready in their suites just across the street from the State Room at the Ames Boston Hotel. For the first look and photos with the wedding party, we headed around the corner to Post Office Square (one of our favorite spots in Downtown Boston to photograph). Before heading into 60 State Street, we had some time for a few more photographs of the couple on the back patio overlooking Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. The traditional Jewish ceremony took place in the Cityside Room of the State Room under a custom branch chuppah accented with cream rose petals and pillar candles in large hurricane vases.

Jen and Adam wanted to bring the outdoors inside for their wedding reception which was a big reason they chose the Great Room at the State Room Boston. In addition to the floor to ceiling windows, the couple added bistro lights that were strung from the balcony across the dance floor. Wooden farm tables were mixed with rounds topped in cream linen. Classic tall arrangements paired perfectly with the candlelight, succulent plants, a variety of cream and green flowers and driftwood.

From Janie Haas: “Jennie wanted the organic beauty of nature brought into the urban setting of the State Room. Jennie had a specific lighting vision in mind that we had never before done at the State Room due to the challenge of no rigging points on the high ceiling. Alexandra Bombard from ALPS was a genius! She found the perfect way to create a canopy over the dance floor with Bistro lights and it changed the entire ambiance of the space. The light canopy brought down the ceiling height which, in turn, made the space feel so warm, elegant and cozy.”

We can not say enough about how much fun it was to work with Jen and Adam and are so thankful they chose to have us capture their beautiful wedding day this summer. A big congratulations to the newlyweds and thank you as always to Erica and her team at the State Room and to Janie Haas, Maria Simpson and their team at Janie Haas Events for introducing us to such a wonderful couple.

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of working with Emily and her family for her Boston based, New York City themed Bat Mitzvah. We loved capturing this beautiful, fun and energetic day at Granite Links Golf Club.

From Stephanie Stark of Janie Haas Events – Planner and Coordinator for Emily’s big celebration: “When I first met back with Emily and her Mother and Grandmother back in 2014 (yes! 2 full years before the Bat Mitzvah), I knew we were going to have a lot of fun creating a fun, energetic and over the top celebration. Their expectation from Day One was to be unique, outside the box and provide an experience their guests would never forget. As I got to know Emily and her interests, I  learned that Emily is very social, she has TONS of close friends, she LOVES to dance and loves spending time in her favorite place – NYC!

They first approached me with the idea of a NYC theme, we wanted to think outside the “cliché NYC theme” box and try to shake it up a bit by introducing nods to the neighborhoods of NYC. As guests arrived, they were greeted with a larger than life NYC scape, including a giant billboard featuring Emily’s name and a collage of photos, the Statue of Liberty, NYC skyscrapers and even the Freedom Tower. Kids enjoyed their cocktail hour in a fun and urban setting, reminiscent of Brooklyn / Lower Manhattan, complete with a graffiti bar, graffiti trash can cocktail tables, graffiti artists and a couple fun street games.

The ballroom space, where guests spent the bulk of the night eating, drinking and dancing the night away gleamed and sparkled like the finest nightclub in Upper Manhattan. Siagel Productions kept the guests dancing all night long, the DJ spinning from the top of a 5ft gold mirror riser! For dinner, we themed the stations to reflect various NYC neighborhoods – We had a fabulous Chinatown Station, a plentiful Meat Packing District station and a delicious Little Italy themed food station. The adult dining tables were adorned with the most gorgeous vibrant color flowers, provided by Raymond Felton and Jimmy Guzman of Marc Hall Designs. The kids sat in fun cabana style lounges and serpentine tables provided by Art of the Event.

There were 3 event logos that were created especially for Emily and the logos were EVERYWHERE, from custom lounge pillows, to stickers on Asian to go boxes, to decals on table tops and everywhere in between. We capped off the night with an elaborate dessert display, themed the nines, provided by Sweet Indulgence from Cranston, RI. As guests left their NYC experience, they loaded up goodie bags with every imaginable sweet treat.

From soup to nuts, no details were overlooked. We had the BEST experience working with these clients and felt honored to bring this vision and experience, two years in the making, to life with the help of an amazing team of Boston’s Top vendors.”

Mazel Tov to Emily and her family!  A big thank you to Sara and her wonderful team at Granite Links for being wonderful to work with and to to Stephanie, Diana and the team at Janie Haas Events for introducing us to this wonderful family and giving Emily the day she had been dreaming of!

Boston Bat Mitzvah at Granite Links Golf Club planned and coordinated by Janie Haas Events – Photography by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116, 617.236.1662 – [email protected] / [email protected]

In 2012 we photographed the Bat Mitzvah of Danielle and were thrilled when her family asked us back to capture the celebration for her little brother Liam. Liam’s Bar Mitzvah celebration was held earlier this month in the Grand Ballroom of the Taj Boston Hotel. All of the event design and planning was coordinated by talented team at Janie Haas Events. We asked lead planner Stephanie to share with us some of the inspiration behind this modern, colorful and fun sneaker themed event.

“When I first sat and met with Ronit and Liam, I could tell we were going to have a lot of fun! Liam was very enthusiastic about being involved with planning of his Bar Mitzvah celebration, but beyond requesting a really cool and unique party, the specifics were unknown. I knew he wanted clubby lounge seating and loved the color orange!  During a meeting with their DJ, Kupah James, we sat together and talked about sneakers the entire meeting. When I was able to steal Liam’s attention and get him to focus on the planning agenda, I asked him if he liked the idea of subtle sneaker theme and he became quite excited. He and I started drawing potential logos at the dining room table, the idea being to create his name out of a shoelace. We took a preliminary sketch to the very talented Michael from Prop Factory, who really brought the logo to life and the rest sort of spiraled into an awesome décor concept.

From there, I tried to merge the idea of clubby and cool with sneakers and decided to pitch the idea of an elite shoe launch ambiance, which was very well received. Liam provided me with a list of his top 15 favorite sneakers, ranging from attainable to impossible to locate. Michael from the Prop Factory managed to find every pair on his list! A rare pair of Jordan 6 Retro “Cigar” sneakers appeared in a custom made acrylic box for guests to sign, while another 15 pairs hung from display truss flanking the DJ booth, provided by Frost Production and PBD Events. Liam changed into a pair of Yeezy Boost 350’s for the dancing portion of the night, while his sister, Danielle rocked a pair of Chanel Sneaker Wedges! Sneakers appeared subtly in every detail, from the step and repeat backdrop to the table top graphics on the kids tables, to footprints leading from the ballroom doors to the balcony stairs, to the card box which was made out of Nike shoe boxes. One of the kids’ activities was a custom Nike Elite branding station where the kids designed their own authentic Nike Elite socks to take home. Who would have thought this all started with some sketching at the dining room table . . .?”

Mazal Tov to Liam and his wonderful family! We can not thank you enough for having us back to once again photograph such a special day for all of you. A big thank you to Stephanie, Diana and the team at Janie Haas Events for a perfect evening!

Boston in the summer is a wonderful time for a wedding! We love working with Janie Haas Events, and we were thrilled to join them at the InterContinental Hotel Boston for Jill and Ben’s wedding. Their classic Jewish wedding had a refined, glamorous feel, while maintaining high energy throughout the evening.

Taking advantage of the warm weather, the couple decided to have their first look and formals outdoors, in the parks and historical areas nearby, such as near the Boston Tea Party Museum and the Rose Kennedy Greenway, which really helped to catch the flavor of the city. Jill and Ben were joined by members of their wedding party for some joyful and traditional photographs to commemorate the day. Indoors, the spaces at the InterContinental Hotel were expertly embellished with fresh flowers in tones of white, silver, and blue by Michael O’Brien of Winston Flowers.

An intimate Ketubah signing, led into a traditional wedding attended by friends and family, under a beautiful floral chuppah. Following the guests being engaged in a wonderfully enthusiastic Hora to open the dance floor, the bride and groom requested their fellow alumni to join them for some quick and fun group photographs showing their university pride!

Congratulations Jill and Ben! Thank you as always to Janie and Maria of Janie Haas Events, and Paul Melino and his team at the InterContinental Hotel for their expertise and a wonderfully organized evening.

When the team at Janie Haas Events asked us to be the photographers for Abigail’s upcoming Bat Mitzvah at The Revere Hotel’s Space 57, we knew it would be fun, modern and whimsical. When the day came for the celebration, we walked into a space transformed into a  Bat Mitzvah In Wonderland. We asked planner Stephanie Stark to describe the inspiration behind the event and here is what she had to say:

“… I keep a “Mitzvah Inspiration” folder in my office and collect ideas that I tuck away for future reference. I had been holding onto this idea of a Wonderland theme event for a couple of years and waited to find the right child for this theme. Then along came Abigail. Her mother, Patricia, described her as “all girl, 100% estrogen” who wanted a fun, creative and unique theme for her Bat Mitzvah. I pitched some of the ideas I had for a Wonderland theme to Abigail and her mother- hanging chairs from the ceiling, mad hatter tea party with vintage china, a cool black and white patterned dance floor, oversized everything .. and they both LOVED the idea. I learned, after blindly pitching the idea, that Abigail’s mother used to read the book written by Lewis Carroll to Abigail as a child and that they both loved the eccentricity and whimsy of the novel. It was the perfect opportunity for us all to let our creative juices flow. Patricia brought many ideas to the table herself- like the use of many of the novel’s quotes throughout the décor. It was important to her that there be a message behind everything and not just flashy décor. With my amazing designer at Art of the Event, Elizabeth Holden, my inspired lighting designer, Suzanne Lowell and many other participants and visionaries, the event you see before came to life with adventure and excitement around every corner.”

Mazel Tov to Abigail and her family and a thank you to the amazing team at Janie Haas Events for thinking of us to capture this beautiful celebration!

When we asked Lindsey to describe her beautiful Four Seasons Boston wedding day, she said “romantic, classic, elegant, with a modern flair!“. This stunning wedding was all that and more, with the beautiful backdrop of the Four Seasons Boston, gorgeous floral arrangements from Marc Hall Designs, and the impeccable design and planning of the team at Janie Haas Events.

We started the day with Lindsey and her bridesmaids in the rooms of the Four Seasons Boston. After the final touches of hair and makeup, we photographed the bride getting buttoned into her gown — a classic white strapless dress with a silver beaded belt designed by Monique L’hullier. The bridesmaid’s deep blue dresses added a great pop of color, matched with pearl earrings and necklaces for the ladies. The attendant’s bouquets from Marc Hall Designs was soft and modern, an arrangement of mostly white flowers with accents of bright orange and yellow. The bride carried a modern twist on a classic bouquet made of white rose petals.

Lindsey and Luis had their first look on the steps of the Four Season’s grand staircase, before heading outside to get some shots of the happy bride and groom in the Boston Public Garden! We headed back inside to the Four Seasons Boston to get the rest of the formal shots with the wedding party, close friends, and family.Four Seasons Boston Wedding Photography LL 004Four Seasons Boston Wedding Photography LL 005Four Seasons Boston Wedding Photography LL 006Four Seasons Boston Wedding Photography LL 007Four Seasons Boston Wedding Photography LL 008Four Seasons Boston Wedding Photography LL 009

Before beginning the ceremony in the Four Seasons Boston’s Governor’s Room, the bride and groom signed their Ketubah — a traditional Jewish marriage document — surrounded by friends and family. The elegant ballroom ceremony that followed was absolutely breathtaking, a classic white Chuppah stood in front of a wall of white flowers where Lindsey and Luis would exchange their vows. The back of the aisle was accented by a white and green floral arrangement, with flowers pouring out onto the floor as the wedding party processed down the aisle. Lindsey and Luis said their “I do”s in an inter-faith ceremony, mixing both Jewish and Catholic traditions from both sides of their families.

Guests enjoyed cocktails in the Aujourd’hui room, which featured a stunning display of customized ice sculptures. Drinks were served on one side of the ice bar, with a delicious raw bar displayed on the other side. The Foyer space outside of the Grand Ballroom was warmly lit with candles, and featured a set of four classic white lily centerpieces displayed on intricate white pedestals lit with a splash of purple color.Four Seasons Boston Wedding Photography LL 015

The Four Season’s Grand Ballroom wedding reception was romantic and elegant. Classic round dining tables with traditional champagne linens were mixed with long communal mirror-top tables, each surrounded by white chiavari ballroom chairs. The long tables were topped with a mix of low white florals, while taller arrangements on each of the dining rounds were accented with pin spot lighting from Suzanne B Lowell. We also loved the textured blue and purple lighting on the dance floor, giving the ballroom a great pop of color. Large white candles in varying crystal holders gave the room a warm and intimate glow, and curved white banquettes in each corner of the room gave this traditionally elegant wedding reception a modern twist.

In addition to the beautiful August weather we have had this summer, we have had the pleasure of capturing the wedding day for some amazing couples including Noelle + Joey! For their wedding day, they chose the always beautiful Boston Harbor Hotel to celebrate. Noelle along with her parents and bridesmaids got ready in their Back Bay residence with breathtaking views of Boston while Joey and the guys got ready back at the Hotel.

Following the ceremony at Boston’s Cathedral of the Holy Cross, we headed to the Boston Harbor Hotel for formal photos. Noelle loves bright pops of color and because she wanted her wedding to have a softer color palate, she found a way to sneak in some color for some photographs under the Rotunda with several giant balloons in bright pink, orange and yellow! Before heading to the reception, we had the opportunity to take a few more photographs at the Admiral’s Suite with roof-deck overlooking both all of downtown Boston and Boston Harbor while the was setting over the city just before sunset with the couple and their families.

The reception kicked off in the Wharf Room with the music of Night Shift and a first dance that had everybody on their feet cheering for Noelle + Joey. We asked both the couple as well as planner Janie Haas of Janie Haas Events to describe the inspirations behind this beautiful event and here is what they had to say:

From Noelle + Joey: “We wanted a soft, romantic, clean, fresh, flirty and modern Boston wedding. Most importantly we wanted the day to be fun and festive!”

We asked Janie Haas to describe the inspiration behind the design and style of the day: “After our first meeting with Noelle and Joey, I asked her to email me adjectives and phrases that would best define her vision. These are the phrases that she sent back to me: fresh, sophisticated, classically elegant, luxurious, vintage and” like a deconstructed fairytale!”  I must admit that, until we got further along in the planning, I wasn’t sure exactly how we were going to pull this off until I realized that Noelle’s fairytale wedding would be a direct reflection of Noelle who was a lot like Grace Kelly and also a lot of fun!! Using sleek mirrored tables with glass vases, orchids and candles  in conjunction with soft, ivory circle linens with luscious, full blush toned floral arrangements was just the right mix of fresh, sophisticated and elegant. The black dance floor, along with white draping and exquisite lighting finished off the room and the end result was truly magical.

While many brides and grooms are nervous on their wedding day, this beautiful couple was completely relaxed and full of fun. Noelle took pictures under the arch of the Boston Harbor Hotel with giant hot colored helium balloons which she then gave to little children who were watching with their parents. She also changed from her gorgeous wedding gown into a fabulous little party dress once the night kicked in and guests were in full party mode. As always, Nightshift kept everyone on the dance floor until the very end when late night snacks were given to all of the guests. It was a fairytale wedding, even for those of us working! Everyone had a blast!”

Thank you to Janie Haas Events – Janie and Maria and to Michael and the team of the Boston Harbor Hotel for being so wonderful to work with!  A big Congratulations to Noelle + Joey and thank you for having us there to capture your special day for you, your family and friends!

Claudine and Chris celebrated their beautiful Four Seasons Boston Wedding in downtown Boston. The top of the grand staircase was the perfect location for the bride and groom to have their first look. Following the first look, we headed across the street for some photographs with the couple and the wedding party outside in the Public Garden. It was a short walk over to the Arlington Street Church for the ceremony. Two stunning floral arrangements were created for the church, which stood on either side of the couple as they said their “I do”s.

The reception at the Four Seasons was warm and elegant, with colors of white, champagne, and blush. The white floral centerpieces of various styles and heights were highlighted on each table with pin-spot lighting, and soft metallic linens covered the tables. For an extra pop of color, each table had several gold mercury candle holders with ivory votives.  The couple’s custom monogram appeared throughout the event on everything including the menu cards, cake and the personalized ice sculpture. Custom lighting projected the monogram onto the center of the dance floor with a champagne texture. At dinner, guests enjoyed the signature Mojitos and Apple Martinis from the ice luge bar.

Thank you Claudine and Chris, and congratulations on a beautiful wedding day!

For newlyweds Jessica and Andrew, the planning started off perfectly when the then bride-to-be found her Kenneth Pool dress at last years local Brides Against Breast Cancer event. From there, all of the perfect details for their spring wedding at the Royal Sonesta, Cambridge fell right into place with the guidance of Janie Haas Event Consulting and the Royal Sonesta team.

Jess’s vision and inspiration were a combination of a Frank Sinatra classic 1950’s feel and pink blush cherry blossom branches with gun-metal gray accents that were incorporated throughout the wedding day.

The the initial first look took place on one of the outdoor patios overlooking the Charles River and Boston Skyline followed by some wedding party and family photos in several locations throughout the hotel.

After all of the formal photos, it was off to sign the Ketubah prior to the ballroom ceremony that took the guests breath away when they saw the gorgeous chuppah created with real cherry blossom branches and bark by the team at Winston Flowers with lighting by Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design.

After cocktail hour, the celebration continued for 250 guests as they made their way back into the ballroom for the reception. Jess and Andrew alongside their friends and family celebrated until the early hours of the morning with the continuous entertainment of Beantown.

Congratulations Jessica and Andrew and thank you for choosing Person + Killian Photography to capture your beautiful wedding day!

Person + Killian always love an opportunity to photograph at The Liberty Hotel in Boston. Recently, we had the chance to once again take advange of this great setting for Rachel and Mason’s wedding.

Rachel’s bridesmaids wore spiced wine dresses while Mason, his groomsmen and groomswoman had matching ties and purple Chucks to accent their charcoal suits. In keeping with the fall color scheme, the couple had burnt orange linens, and fall inspired apothecary jars for centerpieces for their reception.

All of the vendors for this event were coordinated by Janie Haas Events. Thank you Janie for sending this wonderful couple our way. Rachel and Mason were great to work with, and we really had a blast capturing their special day!
