Asking Michael and John to describe the inspiration for their recent summer wedding at Boston’s InterContinental Hotel, the couple replied: “We wanted a contemporary wedding that was elegant, unique, non-traditional and unconventional”. Their joyous ceremony and reception certainly held true to their vision, and we were delighted to be present to document it all.

It was a beautiful summer day and we were thrilled to be able to take photos just across the street in the Rose Kennedy Greenway  under the Echelman sculpture. At the start of the ceremony, guests were treated to an a cappella performance from Overboard, while Michael and John snuck to the altar for a surprise entrance. Combined with the emotional vows and two more performances by Overboard, the ballroom was filled with laughter, happy tears and celebration.

Details of the day were impeccably coordinated, from the lighting design of Suzanne B. Lowell, the elegant fresh floral displays from Columbine Floral Design; even the tiniest accents, such as the personalized monograms on the grooms’ cuffs on their Tom James suits, were not overlooked. The wedding day colors of purple and gray were included in custom welcome bags that gave the guests a taste of Boston.

For the reception, the dance floor was easy to fill with Michael and John leading the way for a night of celebration. Congratulations Michael and John! Thank you to Paul, Nicolette and their team at the InterContinental and to planner and coordinator Rocky Iudiciani for being so fantastic to work with on this beautiful day.

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!

Melissa and Julie had the perfect day for their summer wedding in Marion, MA. Both the outdoor ceremony and tented reception were held on the grounds of Melissa’s parents New England home. When we asked the brides to describe the look and feel of their wedding they said they wanted the ocean-side celebration to be both intimate and inviting for the guests.

Tented Wedding Reception

The ceremony was located in one of the beautiful gardens surrounded by stone wall and trellis.The natural beauty of the area provided the perfect backdrop for the vows followed by a few formal photos with the wedding party.

For cocktail hour, guests relaxed outside atop the hill overlooking the tent and water. We used this time for a few more photos of the newlyweds down on the dock and private beach.

Last weekend Person + Killian Photography had the pleasure of photographing the Liberty Hotel Boston wedding of Lisa & Beth. Not only are Lisa & Beth two of the sweetest people, but they have the most adorable children as well. It was certainly an honor to spend the day with all of them and document such a beautiful and loving couple and their family.

The intimate affair took place at The Liberty Hotel Boston and the couple chose black, white & fuchsia as their color inspiration. They also incorporated skeleton keys and brocade details throughout the wedding. Both brides looked stunning in wedding gowns custom designed by Daniel Faucher, and everyone enjoyed celebrating the night away with this great couple and their family.

A big thank you to Lisa and Beth for trusting Person + Killian Photography to be a part of this special day.
