On a warm September evening, we were thrilled to join Simin +  Nick at the bride’s family home to see their wedding inspiration come to life. The couples vision for their wedding was elegant, magical and romantic. An evening that has the look and feel of a Midsummer Night’s Dream, complete with a lush garden setting, twinkling lights and a star-filled sky.

With a beautiful blend of Persian and Jewish heritages, Simin and Nick had a sweet and touching ceremony. Simin’s family’s backyard magically transformed into soft palate of blush, ivory, and green creating an elegant backdrop for this gorgeous couple! An enchanting Sperry Tent was beautifully transformed by the incredible teams at Winston Flowers, Rentals Unlimited, and Simeral & Co. Guests enjoyed the live music of Sultans of Swing, including a beautiful rendition of the classic Ella Fitzgerald number, “Love is Here to Stay”, as Simin + Nick’s first dance. This beautiful couple celebrated their special day surrounded by loving family and friends. 

Congratulations to Simin + Nick and thank you for putting your trust in us to document this extraordinary celebration of love!

It could not have been a more gorgeous weekend for Sarah + Tyler’s Little Compton, RI wedding! The entire celebration took place at the bride’s family home, from the morning preparation to the tented wedding reception in the evening.  Little Compton is a seaside town known for its sprawling acres of farmland beautiful stonewalls and sandy beaches. The wedding was located on Chace Point a private peninsula with its own private beach.The bride and groom chose to keep the bridal party very small, each of them had only their sister by their side throughout the day. The two beautiful bridesmaids wore lace dresses and all of the ladies carried classic white floral bouquets.

The late afternoon ceremony took place outside, and the weather could not have been better! An outdoor cocktail reception followed the I Do’s, before everyone moved inside the tent to kick off the party. The evening reception was held under a beautiful white sailcloth tent, overlooking the ocean and Rhode Island seaside. A mix of gray linen tables, wood, and mirror-tops made for a really unique and contemporary reception. Lots of candle light made the tent glow as the sun started to set, and kept this beautiful affair feeling really warm and intimate throughout the night. We asked the bride and groom to describe their vision and inspiration for their wedding day, and here’s what they had to say!

We have designed our wedding with the setting at the forefront of our mind. Little Compton, and particularly our wedding venue, is a unique and special place with the stonewall wooden fence, lush greenery, gray rock beach, and sprawling ocean. Our wedding colors fit that setting with neutral tones of gray, green, white, and brown. Our wedding style also fits the setting… and us! We would describe it as classic and elegant, with contemporary touches. We will have candles and reflective mirrors on tables, specially designed orbs hanging from the tent ceiling, lanterns and shepherd hooks throughout the property, and fire pits between the tent and the water. 

We were so happy to have been able to share this wedding weekend with such a wonderful couple. Congratulations Sarah + Tyler and thank you for choosing us to document such an important event!!!

Laura & Newt had a beautiful wedding at a private home north of Boston and Person + Killian Photography was honored to be there. Thank you for choosing us to document this unforgettable New England wedding.

“After a traditional church wedding, we chose the bride’s parents’ home for our reception because we couldn’t imagine anywhere more special or more beautiful to celebrate our marriage. It was important to us that our reception be a true reflection or ourselves; our style, interest, and values”.

” Our vision for the wedding was very traditional New England, reflected in the wedding Party’s attire of navy blazers, penny loafers (san socks) and Marblehead green pants (representation of the groom’s hometown) for the gentlemen; and navy and light blue dresses for the ladies paired with classic pearl strands. The color scheme of Navy and Marblehead green was complemented by pink flowers, and some pink and light blue accents. Our love for sailing was subtly represented by the beautiful Sperry tent crafted from sail cloth, the carrick bend knot napkin rings tied by the groom, and the Carrick bend knot letterpressed into our handmade invitations and duplicated on our programs.”

“We were lucky to have the talents of our family & friends to make our wedding unique and special- a talented uncle provided music for cocktail hour, and very talented friends created beautiful paper products. True to our values, we ensured that all the food served was ethically and locally produced, and we chose to donate to a local food pantry in lieu of favors. In addition to our personalized style, the emphasis on the party was for all our guests to have fun!”

It’s not every day that Person + Killian Photography is asked to photograph a beach party and lobster bake on a private island. Well, this time we had the opportunity for Jaclyn and Trevor’s pre-nuptial wedding weekend bash.

The day started when we hopped on a boat at the Chatham Bars Inn on a perfect Friday morning and headed out on a 20 min boat ride to Strong Island. Upon arrival, all guests were greeted at the boathouse with refreshing Island Rum Punch.

After making our way across the island to the beach, totes were given out that had everything necessary for the perfect day including towels, sun screen, mist spray and more. For the next couple of hours, guests partied it up complete with a raw bar, water sports, boats full of iced cold beverages and even a DJ spinning from a tiki boat in the water!

From there it was off to the spa tent before heading over to the lobster bake. The remainder of the afternoon was complete with an authentic reggae band, Mojitos and even the signature “Wedded Bliss” cocktail.

Check back soon for Part II of the weekend – Jaclyn and Trevor’s wedding day
