Rachel and Mark were looking for a rustic venue for their wedding that was out of the city and chose picturesque Stonewall Farm in Keene, New Hampshire. The town made for a perfect get away weekend for the couple and their guests.

The venue, an actual working organic farm in Southern New Hampshire, was incredibly scenic and did not call for too much embellishment. Instead, the bride and groom supplied DIY touches, that included the escort cards, favors and signs throughout the sprawling property.  Tones of violet and slate enhanced the rustic setting while keeping the proceedings fun and vibrant.

Following dinner we had the chance to spend a few minutes outside for some night photos with the couple. The post and beam barn, illuminated with a warm glow from within that provided the perfect backdrop.

Congratulations Rachel and Mark and thank you for being so wonderful to capture on your beautiful wedding day!

Summer wedding season is really starting to kick off, and what a beautiful weekend it was for Nicole and Ethan! After pre-wedding preparations at Nicole’s family home, the evening kicked off with a ceremony at St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Church. Once the couple said “I do”, it was off to the Ipswich Country Club to celebrate!

The clubhouse at the Ipswich Country Club provided the perfect setting for the evening cocktail reception and festivities. Windows surround the reception hall, ensuring a spectacular view of the estate–especially around sunset! The bride and groom chose decor that was both elegant and sophisticated, but still reflected their fun personalities. Ipswich’s own Dana Markos provided the breathtaking flowers for the event, adding elegance and a splash of color to the already perfect backdrop of the Country Club.

Congratulations to Nicole and Ethan and thank you for being so wonderful to work with!

Boston based couple, Rachel + Sean wanted a destination beach wedding and were elated when Sean’s uncle offered his beautiful seaside home in Darien, CT for the occasion. Rachel described their wedding as preppy, nautical and Nantucket inspired.

We had a blast capturing all of the fun events and details of the day including hand made signs that were placed throughout the property. Below are just some of our favorite images that we couldn’t wait to share.

The couple created “RRS Designs” for their wedding with DIY homemade letter press boxes and save-the-dates along with sailboat ornaments that went out to all their guests.

Rachel and Sean met and fell in love when they were both living in Washington D.C. So, when Sean found the ties with the capital building he knew they were the perfect fit for the wedding day.

After the first look, we took advantage of the beautiful property, taking photos on the beach, rolling hills and gardens with the bride, groom and their wedding party.

Rachel and Sean’s lemonade stand sign was one of our favorites and was accented by a buoy the couple had found for an extra pop of color.

The cocktail style reception took place on the patios of the home overlooking the infinity pool, lush floral gardens and ocean.

The couple loves maps and incorporated a map of Darien in both their save-the-dates and their sign in board.

Person + Killian Photography recently photographed the Rhode Island Wedding of Alice and Brian. Both the ceremony and reception took place at the couple’s home with the ceremony in their beautiful garden full of wildflowers and hydrangea covered chuppah.

We had a great time capturing the event that the bride and groom described as their “elegant summer cocktail celebration”. Below are just a handful of our favorite images from their wedding day.

Following the ceremony it was off to the tent for the cocktail hour and evening reception.

Congratulations to the newlyweds and thank you for reaching out to us to photograph your beautiful celebration.

Earlier this month, Person + Killian Photography had the pleasure of photographing a truly inspirational couple when they eloped in a Boston Public Garden wedding with three of their closest friends. Louisa and Jeroen met back in 2007 while doing relief work in Uganda. Louisa at the time was working for AVSI (a non-governmental organization with the Italian NGO) and Jeroen for the International Red Cross. Over the past few years they have traveled together doing what they love all over the world including spending time in Sudan and the Congo.

The bride and groom decided on the Boston Public Garden for their intimate ceremony as Louisa is here finishing her Masters in International Affairs. Recently, she took a trip to NYC to visit her bridesmaid on a 3-day, whirlwind shopping spree for her wedding dress.

The final look for the wedding day was a combination of her gorgeous dress from Reiss, fabulous blue pumps by Miu Miu and a necklace that she picked up in Africa. The matching wedding bands were custom made in Marblehead, MA. The finishing touch was her white orchid bouquet from Winston Flowers.

After a few formal photos, the newlyweds and their wedding party all grabbed their cell phones to share the exciting news that they just got married. Within a few minutes calls were made to family members all over the world (everywhere from Seattle, WA to Switzerland)!

From the Public Garden it was off to nearby Via Matta on Park Plazza for some hors’devours and a toast to the happy couple on a beautiful afternoon.

Louisa and Jeroen plan to continue their work together in Africa and Eastern Europe and will make Athens, Greece their home town. We wish them a world of happiness and are so touched that we had the opportunity to meet them, their wonderful friends and to capture their special day.

With summer drawing to a close, and fall just about upon us, Person + Killian Photography was very excited to have the opportunity to photograph a beautiful Rhode Island wedding  at the Castle Hill Inn this month. Christine and David, who live in New York, were referred to our studio by a friend, and from the moment we met them, we knew that their Newport wedding would be fabulous.

The seaside event, which took place at the Castle Hill Inn & Resort in Newport, was breathtaking. The ceremony took place outdoors, and we couldn’t have hoped for better weather!

Carrying bouquets designed by Stoneblossom Floral & Event Design, the bridesmaids wore dresses of deep purple, which were the perfect complement to the classic linen suits worn by the groomsmen.

As the day wore on, the celebration moved into the large, beautifully decorated tent. From the crisp, clean centerpieces to the brightly colored accent vases, each detail was flawlessly coordinated with the purple and green color palette.

Congratulations, Christine and David, and thank you for selecting Person + Killian Photography. We had a blast capturing your special day!

Recently, Person + Killian Photography had the chance to work at the Renaissance Golf Club for Julie and Phil’s wedding. From the first day that Jill met with the couple she was looking forward capturing their big day.

With the combination of a fabulous new venue, perfect weather for an outdoor ceremony, Julie’s gorgeous hair piece, polka-dot bridesmaids dresses (love them!), and atypical brown tuxedos for the guys, the day was full of great photo ops for the newlyweds.

Thank you to Julie and Phil for having P+K document your special day and to our dear friend Trish for sending this wonderful couple our way!
