It’s time for the winter wedding season to begin! This elegant and modern wedding was extra special for a few reasons — not only is the bride a long-time Boston wedding industry colleague and fabulous wedding planner, but this was one of the first events in the Boston Public Library’s brand new Boylston Hall. Paige and Chris added so many sweet personal touches, and really made their wedding day special for the two of them and all of their guests.

The wedding day started at the Fairmont Copley, and we didn’t need to stray far from Copley Square for any of the special events. Paige and Chris got ready inside the hotel, then met outside in the Square for their first look. We took advantage of the fountains, the city streets, and the wreath-covered Boston Public Library for some romantic photos of the bride and groom. We were then joined by the wedding part inside the Boston Public Library for formal photos of the whole group, and we had plenty of gorgeous places to choose from inside the historic building. The wedding ceremony was held in the Boston Public Library Courtyard, which was lined with candles, white pillars, and towering green florals while Paige and Chris said their “I do”s.

The wedding reception brought a special treat for guests and for us — it was held in the Boston Public Library’s brand new Boylston Hall. This was the first time we’ve seen the new space for an event, and it is a perfect addition to the Boston Public Library’s already gorgeous venue. Paige and Chris chose a modern and elegant color palette of black, white, and crystal, a perfect contrast to the Boylston Hall’s marbled floors and high ceilings. A few tall green and white centerpieces added a beautiful pop of color to the room, which otherwise stayed true to the modern black and white decor. The talented teams at Marc Hall Design, PEAK Event Services, RESERVE Modern Event Rental and ALPS Lighting executed Paige’s vision to perfection.

We loved the personal touches Paige and Chris added to their wedding celebration, including a surprise entrance under a baseball bat tunnel (Chris is a baseball fan), and a “cutting the pizza” in lieu of cutting the cake. Their wedding day was a true reflection of their unique relationship, and we were so happy to share this wonderful day with them.

Earlier this month the Boston wedding and event industry was introduced to a new venue. While the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum has been open for public forums for years, they are officially now available for social events. The JFK Library team along with their exclusive partners Gourmet Caterers hosted the launch party and we love that we were asked to capture the evening.

This breathtaking local is located at Columbia Point on the Boston Harbor with the city skyline as its backdrop. Guests were invited to cocktails in the Museum Pavilion. This nine-story glass atrium overlooking the harbor was set for a ceremony with floral design by Artistic Blossoms and furniture from Reserve Modern Event Rental. The Gilded Harps provided the music, hors d’oeuvres and food stations were provided by the Gourmet team that included a caviar station.

As the sun set, the celebration moved into Smith Hall which was designed for a reception immaculately with floral design by the team at Marc Hall Design, furniture from Reserve, lighting by Design Light and band provided by Entertainment Specialists.

We are so glad we had the opportunity to be part of this fantastic night and look forward to working in this stunning space in the future!

John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum – Boston’s Newest Wedding Venue – Launch Party Celebration with Gourmet Caterers – By Person + Killian Photography

We see a lot of beautiful things in our line of work; this Four Seasons Hotel Boston Wedding with Marc Hall Design is exquisite. The couple, Liz and Mike, wanted a beautiful affair that had an air of ease and intimacy. Starting the day in a suite at the Four Seasons, Liz was in full swing getting ready. Mike was likewise prepping in his room where friends and family popped by for a quick hello before he dressed to meet his bride.

With such a beautiful day, we headed over to the Boston Public Gardens to capture the First Look. Surrounded by the abundant greenery the gardens have to offer, we took this time to capture some formals before heading back to the hotel to wrap up the wedding party formals.

The Grand Ballroom was transformed with an archway full of gorgeous, lush blooms in shades of whites and creams for the ceremony. Liz’s brother officiated as the couple exchanged vows in the presence of their loved ones. After the ceremony, we made our way to the Aujourd’hui Room for cocktail hour while the Grand Ballroom underwent another transformation.

First to greet the guests was an escort card table in the round. A magnificent floral display of roses and orchids accented with candles. Between the lighting, linens and beautiful centerpieces, the reception space felt sophisticated with warm tones of creams, blushes and gold. As the evening progressed, it was clear that the couple and their guests was enjoying themselves. From the decident dessert display and fun photo booth to the packed dance floor, what’s not to love?

Thank you Liz and Mike for letting Person + Killian be a part of this beautiful day! As always a big thank you to Philip Deschamps for being an absolute joy to work with.

Ashley and Brian chose the Mandarin Oriental Boston for their recent destination wedding. The couple who live in Nevada hired local Boston designer  Eric Czerlonka of Czerlonka Event Design and Management to help bring their vision to life. The ceremony took place at The Cathedral of the Holy Cross followed by cocktail hour in the courtyard of the Mandarin. For the reception, the Oriental Ballroom was transformed by the talented team at the Mandarin, Eric and his team as well as the Marc Hall Design and Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design teams.

From Ashley and Brian – “Planning a destination wedding is as exciting as it is complex.  The single most important factor in its success is having expert and visionary people on your team who are trained in providing first class service at every entry point. The wedding day was chic and magical in every aspect, from the architectural flowers cascading on the tables to the modern décor.  With photos galore, we will always remember stopping traffic on Boylston Street for the perfect shot.  Sharing this most special day with our family and friends will hold a lifetime of memories.”

Eric worked with Ashley on helping to bring her vision to life for the reception. “Our goal was to create a room that was modern, sleek and sophisticated with a warm romantic feel.  We achieved this be setting the space with a combination of square mirrored tables and 36 foot long rectangular tables covered in custom silk linen.  The clean straight lines were softened with shades of white accents.  The room was was transformed by the magnificent contrasting tables installations created by Marc Hall Design and Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design lit the room perfectly bring all the pieces to life.”

Congratulations again Ashley and Brian and thank you for having us there to capture your beautiful destination wedding day here in New England! A big thank you as well do Donna and the team at the Mandarin, Eric and his team and to all of those who helped make this day so perfect for the newlyweds.

Andrea + Nolan’s beautiful Spring Winchester Country Club wedding took place this month, and Person + Killian Photography was thrilled to be there to capture it all!

The bride, Andrea, who got ready beforehand at the parents’ home nearby, was accompanied by seven bridesmaids, two flower girls, and a maid of honor, all excited to be apart of her wedding day. Her stunning Pnina Tornai dress from Kleinfeld Bridal, fit her perfectly, and was accessorized with a beautiful beaded belt around her waist. She lit up the room with her ecstatic smile and flawless hair and makeup. After the church ceremony, the guests then ventured to the Winchester Country Club, where we had the pleasure of taking their photos around the lush green Country Club grounds. The photos were then followed by a cocktail hour which took place under a beautiful tent. And the socializing and fun didn’t stop, as the cocktail hour ended and the reception at the club house ensued. The decor continued to stun everyone, every detail perfectly executed by the talented team at Marc Hall Design.  The reception was breathtakingly sophisticated, filled with brightly lit candles, custom white drapes, large mirrors, and gorgeous florals.

Andrea + Nolan continued to dance the night away with their friends and family, well into the after party. This Winchester Country Club Wedding was one of the highlights of our Spring so far, and we wish Andrea + Nolan all the best for the future!

Want to beautifully wrap luxury, elegance, and sophistication all up into one? Look no further because the talent of Czerlonka Event Design & Management and Marc Hall Design for Jenn and Michael’s wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Boston will be sure to wow.

Our sweet, head-over-heels in love couple, Jenn and Michael, pulled at everyone’s heartstrings during their beautiful traditional Jewish ceremony. The couple was joined under a Marc Hall custom-made birch chuppah bursting with cascading lush hydrangeas and orchids.

A softly sophisticated palate of ivory, cream, touches of blush, and silver and crystal accents of glamour transformed the Ritz ballroom into a simply dreamlike setting. From our gorgeous bride’s striking Marc Hall couture custom floor-length bouquet, to statement floral centerpieces, and a stunning 4-tiered cake of delicate floral piping, this wedding was one jaw-dropping beautiful detail after another.

A big thank you to Eric Czerlonka and Vanessa Michael and her team at the Ritz. Congratulations again Jenn and Michael. It was truly an honor documenting your special day and we wish you a lifetime full of love and happiness!

New York City couple Eliah and Jamie met while attending Harvard University. Their love for music brought them together as they traveled the world on a 2004 World Tour as members of The Harvard Krokodiloes.

Eliah and Jamie chose to come back to Boston to celebrate their wedding weekend starting with their rehearsal dinner at Elliot Hall on the Harvard University campus. The wedding ceremony and reception were held the following night on New Years Eve at the Harvard Club of Boston on Commonwealth Ave in the Back Bay.

“Supper with Jamie and Eliah” at Elliot Hall was just the beginning of two days of celebration filled with music. Of the nearly 250 friends and family, almost everyone had a part. Guests preformed original songs for the couple, Broadway hits, guitar and piano solos, duets and toasts throughout the evening. The rehearsal was truly a moving and memorable night that was just a preview of the spectacular wedding the next day.

After getting ready at the Harvard Club, Eliah and Jamie met up with their family and friends for some traditional wedding party photographs in the Massachusetts Room. The spacious warmly lit room and black and white checkered floor made for a great location (and a favorite space at the Club for Eliah).

Guests arrived for the ceremony to a spectacularly decorated Harvard Hall.  A custom birch chuppah by Marc Hall Design sat in the center of the room and was surrounded by chiavari chairs set up in the round with candle light throughout adding warmth of the space. The moving ceremony was filled with music including a quartet and a cappella by the Harvad Kroks who sang from the balcony.

When guests arrived back in Harvard Hall after cocktails in the Massachusetts Room, it had been transformed by Marc and his team. Topiaries topped each guest table and warmth was added with candle light and roaring fireplaces on each end of the hall. Following the newlyweds introduction, a lively hora got the room up on their feet.  Prior to dinner a prayer song was sung by the Krocks and included both Eliah and Jamie.

As soon as dinner concluded, the dancing kicked off with music by Nightshift Entertainment. When the clock struck midnight, Eliah took the stage to preform the classic Frank Sinatra song “New York, New York”. Just before the end of the song, confetti filled the air from the balconies. This was a surprise to guests who joined in the song and celebration.

Congratulations to Eliah and Jamie. We had such a wonderful time capturing your rehearsal dinner and wedding celebration! This was the perfect way to kick off a new year of weddings and events. A big thank you to Nicole Simeral of Simeral & Company for flawless planning and to Jennifer and her team at the Harvard Club of Boston for always being so great to work with. A very happy 2014 to all!

Back Bay Boston New Years Eve Wedding of Eliah and Jamie at the Harvard Club of Boston with Wedding Rehearsal at Harvard University and photographs by Person + Killian Photography

The Cape has always been the “happy place” for both Jessica + Jon. Jessica’s family summered on the Cape for her entire life, and Jon’s family has set their roots on the Cape for over 50 years! When it came time for the two to plan their wedding, choosing the Cape was an easy decision. We joined Jessica + Jon for a beautiful weekend at the Wychmere Beach Club, which included a traditional New England lobster bake, seaside photos, a classic church wedding ceremony, and an elegant black tie wedding reception with a contemporary urban twist.

The weekend started on Friday evening, with a classic lobster bake rehearsal dinner. A tent was installed on the Wychmere Beach Club’s private beach, overlooking the beautiful New England seaside. Customized games (which would make another appearance at the cocktail hour the following day!) were set up on the sand for guests to play and rustic wooden lanterns were set up along the boardwalk to light the way. Everyone enjoyed dinner, while Jessica + Jon heard special toasts from their closest family and friends. As soon as the sun set, the tent was lit up with sparkling strings of lights and a bonfire was roaring out on the beach for everyone to enjoy.

The next morning began the wedding day — Jessica and her bridesmaids got ready in the Wychmere Beach House’s bridal suite, while Jon and his groomsmen hung out in the Wychmere Cottage (sometimes called the “Groom Cottage” for weddings)! The bride’s bouquet was a gorgeous mix of greens, white roses, and deep red flowers — perfect for an early Autumn wedding. She chose a strapless, mermaid-cut Anna Maier gown, matched with sparkly Jimmy Choo shoes and a glittering silver hair piece. We left her bridal party inside to finish getting ready while we took Jessica out onto the beach for her first look with Jon!

The bride and groom had their first look on the boardwalk overlooking the Cape Cod beach. We braved the blustery wind to get some great shots of the happy couple along the beautiful beach before heading back inside. We took a few more romantic photos of Jessica + Jon inside the Wychmere before we were joined by the bridal party and family for formal photos. Following formals, the wedding party hopped a ride in a Cape Cod Trolley to the wedding ceremony while Jessica rode with her dad in a classic white Rolls Royce.

After the traditional wedding ceremony at the nearby Pilgrim Congregational, guests headed back to the Wychmere to await the big arrival of the happy newlyweds. Jessica + Jon made their grand entrance to cocktails on a sailboat, while everyone cheered them on from the dock! Some guests stayed outside to enjoy the seaside view and lawn games, while others moved inside for the hors d’oeuvres and raw bar in the Wychmere’s Hydrangea Room.

The elegant evening reception took place in the Harbor Room, named for the panoramic windows giving a perfect view of the Cape Cod harbor right outside. The tables were topped with silver linens, with accented pops of dark navy blue from the table name cards and ribbon-wrapped candy boxes on each place setting. The wooden beamed ceiling and silver chandeliers made the room elegant and contemporary, and the towering white floral centerpieces from Marc Hall Design were definite show-stoppers. Jessica + Jon’s custom “J&J” monogram was even projected onto the dance floor using lights.

We absolutely loved being a part of this traditional black tie Cape Cod wedding at the Wychmere Beach Club, especially knowing how special the Cape was for Jessica, Jon, and their families! Thank you to the fantastic group of vendors we got to work with, the entire team at the Wychmere, and Jessica + Jon for letting us be a part of your fabulous Cape Cod wedding day.

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.

We loved all the details of this beautiful tented summer wedding! The happy couple decided to have a wedding at home, surrounded by their closest friends and family. The entire event was planned and catered by the talented team at The Catered Affair and tented by Peterson Party Center – including a stunning ceremony tent, a cocktail tent, and a reception tent so exquisite it could have been a ballroom! We took advantage of the perfect summer weather and got some poolside photos with the bride, groom, and their family before the day’s events began.

The afternoon ceremony was held in a pale yellow and white tent on the property. The four open walls of the tent were draped with yellow linen, and the white ballroom chairs had soft yellow cushions to match. The aisle was lined with six towering custom made topiaries in sleek silver vases, and the front altar featured three large white panels with beautiful chains of soft yellow roses. A string quartet provided elegant background music for the romantic “I do”s.

Cocktail hour was set up in a round, open-sided tent in the backyard, and extended onto their beautiful stone patio. High and low cocktail tables were decorated with fun yellow and grey patterned linens, and topped with white and green floral arrangements. A fabulous raw bar was provided by The Catered Affair team, with large ice displays of shrimp and oysters for guests to enjoy before dinner.

The first thing you could see before entering the evening’s reception tent built over the tennis court was a stunning entrance way with greenery from top to bottom, designed by Marc Hall.  Once inside, the entrance space was lined with two long white tables displaying the escort cards and topped with beautiful arrangements of green ferns and white flowers. Two long mirrors and a stunning crystal chandelier made you forget you were in a tent altogether!

The reception tent itself was exquisite – the white fabric walls and ceilings were covered in soft pink and fuchsia lighting, and a custom white monogram was projected onto the dance floor surrounded by purple light. Patterned yellow linens were mixed with modern mirror-top tables, and paired with beautiful white ballroom chairs detailed with a textured back. A few large wing-back chairs and comfy white loveseats were interspersed throughout the tent, for a fun and eclectic atmosphere. The floral centerpieces featured soft white peonies with pops of bright yellow, large green ferns, and cascading white orchids. The tall arrangements were surrounded by smaller groups of white and yellow flowers, to really fill the table with color. The ceiling of the tent was hung with gorgeous crystal chandeliers, which provided a warm and glowing atmosphere for the night’s party.

Following the reception, the celebration moved back into the ceremony tent — which had been transformed into a fun and colorful after-party. The walls of yellow linen were replaced with a clear lining, and beautiful round chandeliers were hung over lounge area for guests to relax and enjoy the night. The tent popped with bright purple textured lighting and deep pink floral arrangements.

Everyone had a fantastic evening celebrating this day with the new bride and groom, and the newlyweds could not have been happier to be surrounded by all their friends, family, and loved ones for their one-of-a-kind summer wedding! Special thanks to the fantastic team at The Catered Affair for planning such a beautiful event. Congratulations to the happy couple!

It’s not every day we get to go to a party like this!

Guests had no idea what they were in for when the evening began, but they did know something unique was about to happen. The invitations asked guests to arrive at the Meadowbrook School in Weston at 5:30pm (with a note that said “Don’t be late”).

Daisy baskets and balloons adorned each table, and drink tickets were passed out to the guests as they arrived. A DJ was playing classic cliché party songs (like the conga) and a full buffet table was set (or so it appeared that way). There was just one thing – it was all for show, and this wasn’t the party!

After about 30 mins of cocktail hour it was time to let a night of surprises begin, starting with a grand entrance by Richard Simmons to kick things off! Richard and a flash mob of dancers (who had been posing as wait staff during cocktail hour) got the crowd going to Party Rock Anthem. When the song ended, he announced “Wait a minute you guys – this isn’t the party! Come on, follow me!”… The guests headed outside and were given small champagne bottles as they loaded up in vans for destination unknown.

The motorcade finally stopped on the runway at the Hanscom Air Force Base in Bedford. The cars pulled up to a hanger with a large custom tent alongside it. The tent was divided into several rooms, starting with a vibrant, colorful cocktail reception. Designer Marc Hall commented that “the design inspiration for the night was piloted by the passion the clients have for intense color”, and it definitely showed.

For this space, custom fabric treatments including the large lampshade over the bar, acrylic tables and caviar station, 5′ tall orange velvet diamond tufted banquettes and 5′ tall diamond shaped mirror vases we all custom made for the client. Every detail from the origami place cards to the color shirts and ties of the staff was hand picked to go with each color scheme adding to the wow factor of the design!

After cocktails, guests were led through a fabric lit blue corridor into the dining room. Draped fabric ceilings, dramatic lighting by PORT Lighting Systems, tables and chairs filled with even more custom decor and stunning floral arrangements took everyone’s breath away.

As dinner service was perfectly executed by the team at The Catered Affair (who also coordinated and produced the event), the guests enjoyed another surprise — a private concert performance by Partridge Family star David Cassidy! David was a big hit, especially when he sang “I Think I Love You”.  The night was still far from over!

A journey through another beautifully draped area of the tent led the party guests to their final destination for the evening which took place inside the airplane hanger itself.  Brand new white luxury pod seating with pearl banquettes and ottomans from PBD Events filled the space and popped against the black walls and flooring with purple and blue spot lighting by East Coast Lighting.

Once all the guests had made it in, it was time for the final surprise of the night to be unveiled – an actual Live Nation concert! A 60 foot tall section of fabric dropped to reveal a full scale stage. Behind the curtain – Bon Jovi!!! The band performed to perfection for 100+ guests and with so much energy in the room, the band even came back for a 15 minute encore! Everyone who was part of this unbelievable event had an amazing night to remember and we are so thrilled we were there to capture it all!
