Category archives: State Room Boston Weddings

You don’t have to pick just one style when it comes to planning your wedding day. More and more often, couples are mixing different themes and looks to make their wedding celebration perfectly unique to their vision. You might think that “traditional” and “modern” wouldn’t work together, but we love seeing how brides and grooms are taking their favorite elements from different styles and blending them together. This is exactly how bride Erika described her vision for her wedding day — “a blend of modern with traditional elements”.

Erika and her groom Jimmy started their wedding day at The Langham Boston. The ladies got prepped and pampered in bright and colorful floral robes before changing into their dresses — a strapless sweetheart gown for Erika and champagne bridesmaid dresses for her bridal party. It was a quick walk across the street to Post Office Square where Erika and Jimmy met for their first look. We took some formal photos of the entire wedding party and some solo shots with just the bride and groom at Post Office Square before hopping in a trolley and driving to the Seaport area for photos overlooking the Boston Harbor and city skyline. Then it was back onto the trolley and off to the State Room for the wedding to begin.

For a wedding mixing both traditional and modern elements, the State Room Boston was the perfect fit. Erika and Jimmy’s wedding ceremony was held in the Great Room, which featured classic white draping, towering floral arrangements on mirror pedestals, and of course the unbeatable view of the city below. Following the ceremony, guests moved upstairs to the mezzanine for cocktails while the Great Room was transformed for dinner and dancing. The couple chose a soft color palette of blushes, gold, and ivory — champagne linens, gold and white chiavaris and gold-accented charger plates and flatware added a touch of traditional elegance to the decor. Classic white floral arrangements were mixed with modern vases filled with submerged flowers — a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary styles. A custom set of “E & J” lights lit  up the dance floor, with a modern lounge set nearby for guests to relax.

Special thanks to the entire team at the State Room Boston and to Erika and Jimmy for letting us be a part of their gorgeous spring wedding — we had a blast!

It was a beautiful day in Boston for this winter wedding — sunny, bright, with just a little bit of snow still lining the city streets. Bride and groom Lindsey and Sal are no strangers to the Boston social and event industry, Lindsey works at a local salon and has plenty of experience with brides on their big day and Sal owns a rental company. Their classic winter wedding at the State Room Boston was elegant, modern, and a perfect reflection of the beautiful winter season.

Lindsey and Sal prepped for the wedding day at the nearby Langham Hotel. They wanted to keep their wedding party intimate, with only Lindsey’s best friend and salon co-worker serving as bridesmaid and Sal’s business partner and best friend filling the role of groomsman. The couple met in the lobby of the Langham for their first look, before being whisked away in an antique white car from Le Limo. Both Lindsey and Sal love and own antique cars, so even though the drive wasn’t very long to the State Room Boston it was important that the car be incorporated into their wedding day!

After arriving at the State Room Boston, we went straight up to the Great Room on the 33rd floor for some formal photos with the couple. Lindsey and Sal’s beloved bulldog Bruin unfortunately couldn’t be at the wedding, but he was featured in their engagement photos leading up to the Great Room, as well as on the menus, place cards, and as a cut-out inside the photo booth. The wedding ceremony at the State Room Boston was officiated by Sal’s aunt, and the couple said their “I dos” overlooking the gorgeous snowy streets of Boston below.

While guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, the Great Room was transformed into a gorgeous winter wedding reception. The couple chose a color palette of classic white — perfect for the season — with white linens, towering white floral arrangements, crystal chiavari chairs with white cushions, and a soft seating area of modern white furniture just off the dance floor. Lindsey changed into a second dress after dinner, with a sleeker skirt perfect for dancing. After the cake cutting and a few toast, this happy newlywed couple celebrated the night away surrounded by friends, family, and loved ones.

Thank you to Lindsey and Sal for being such a joy to work with, and to the entire team at the State Room Boston for this fabulous winter wedding celebration!

Lindsey and Pat’s journey to the altar began on Boston’s waterfront, when Pat popped the question to Lindsey on a walk along the Boston Harbor. Their State Room Boston wedding brought them full circle, right back to the same spot on the Harborwalk but now as husband and wife!

The soon-to-be newlyweds started their day at the Ames Hotel in Boston’s historic downtown, just steps from Faneuil Hall and the Old State House. Once the full wedding party was ready to go, we journeyed to the Holy Name Parish in West Roxbury for Lindsey and Pat to say their “I do”s. The couple become husband and wife in a full Catholic mass ceremony surrounded by family, friends, and loved ones. After the ceremony we took Lindsey and Pat back to a very special place — the exact spot on the seaport where Pat had proposed. We took some beautiful photos of the new husband and wife along the Boston waterfront, then met up with the rest of the wedding party in Post Office Square for some formals with the whole group.

The evening celebration took place high above the city at the gorgeous State Room Boston. Lindsey and Pat’s vision for their wedding was glamorous and chic, capturing the spirit of a big city wedding. Overlooking the sunny skies and blue water of the seaport below, this State Room Boston wedding was everything they had dreamed of. The decor was clean and elegant, with colors of white, black and pops of gold throughout the room. White floral arrangements stood tall on each table in clear crystal vases, and the floor-to-ceiling windows gave the guests an unbeatable view of the spectacular city. An evening of delicious food, heartfelt toasts, and an energetic dance floor kept this celebration going all night, and we were so thrilled to be there to capture it all.

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.

The Downtown Boston State Room Wedding of Jen and Adam by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662 – [email protected] and [email protected]

This sophisticated summer State Room wedding is beautiful from top to bottom. Margarita and Steve wanted a traditional classic wedding that encompassed their style with some fun cultural highlights while showcasing the city they love. Working at the State Room, or any Longwood Venue, means there will be no shortage of scenery; the panoramic views, twenty foot ceilings and centralized location makes it quintessentially modern & chic.

We began this sunny summer day at the Intercontinental Hotel where loved ones traveled from far and wide to join the happy couple on their wedding weekend. Preparations for the day were underway and the bride and her family were enjoying some quality time in the bridal suite.  The ladies donned purple floor length gowns accented with bouquets hydrangea and roses in whites and creams. 

Margarita’s dress is a Peter Langner Couture from L’elite Bridal in Boston and was paired with some amazing Christian Louboutin shoes. Her bouquet was filled with roses and phalaenopsis orchids. When it all comes together, beautiful is an understatement!

The First Look is often one of the most exciting and highly anticipated parts of the wedding day. We get caught up in the moment nearly every time and Margarita & Steve’s was as sweet as they come.  We took this time to capture some quiet moments and then grabbed the bridal party for some formals before heading over for the ceremony.  

The Cathedral of the Holy Cross sits in the heart of Boston where the traditional catholic ceremony took place. Friends and family gathered as the couple exchanged vows in one of the oldest churches in the country.

As the guests headed to the State Room, we took this time to get some shots of the newlyweds at some of their favorite spots in Boston. Tia’s is where this couple met so we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to sneak a quick visit in before we went over to the State Room. Joining their cocktail hour, the happy couple got to enjoy cocktails and conversations with guests as a traditional Mariachi Band played creating a festive atmosphere.

The Great Room at the State Room feels like you are on top of the world with unparalleled views but Margarita and Steve still made it feel intimate. There are so many lovely details in this wedding – we could go on and on. From the monogram dance floor to the 5-tiered cake, the entire space was transformed. The gorgeous tablescapes with linens, chargers and, of course, the stunning flower arrangements. The centerpieces were an eclectic mix of different orchids paired with hydrangea in whites and creams;  the pinspot lighting on them almost made them look like they were floating. Everyone enjoyed an evening of toasts, dinner and dancing….tons of dancing!  The fabulous maracas that they gave as a favor got plenty of use.

Congratulations again Margarita and Steve! We loved being a part of your beautiful day and hope you love the highlights as much as we do!

Recently, we had the pleasure of photographing the State Room Boston summer wedding of Stephanie and David.  From the bride – “We are Boston. It is where we met (Scholar’s) and where we live (Southie). We wanted a personal wedding that was true to us and asked our close friend to marry us.” With sweeping views of the city, the State Room was the perfect location to showcase their beloved home town.

After getting ready at the nearby Langham Hotel, we walked across the street to picturesque Post Office Square. Waiting for the bride for their first look alongside Dave was their beloved dog Manny (who made an appearance at their engagement sessions earlier this year). Steph also wanted to incorporate her love for the color pink and went with a soft pink and grey color pallet for the day. As a surprise, the parents of the bride had the pink taxi from the Langham to drive the bride over to State Street.

The ceremony and reception took place in the Great Room where guests watched the sunset over the Boston Harbor as they enjoyed dinner and heartfelt toasts. Joey Scott and the Connection had the room dancing and celebrating for the rest of the evening. Congratulations Steph and Dave and thank you for being such a pleasure to work with on your beautiful day! Also a big thank you to the always amazing team at State Room Boston.

The State Room is an incredibly photogenic venue, and we were thrilled to return there to photograph the downtown Boston wedding of Stacey and Evan. These newlyweds love Boston, and wanted a wedding that encapsulated all the beautiful and unique experiences the city has to offer. From getting ready at the stately Ames Boston Hotel to first look and formal photographs in Post Office Square, Stacey and Evan’s wedding really embodied the flavor of the city (literally, with favors from the famously creative South End Blackbird Doughnuts, and cupcakes from Wicked Good Cupcakes!). The couple had a beautiful traditional Jewish ceremony, with a floral chuppah and panoramic views of the historic Boston waterfront.

Stacey described it best: “We  met and fell in love in Boston and we wanted our wedding to reflect our love for each other and the city! We tried to incorporate that into all aspects of our wedding – from the clock tower on the table numbers, to the local doughnut favors (our favorite to take a trip to on the weekend mornings!). We really wanted our wedding to be fun and casual to balance out the elegant space. We added touches that felt very “us” – such as incorporating our sports rivalries into the kipot for the ceremony and passing out popcorn right as guests arrived (we are food fanatics and wanted everyone to start eating from the start!). The view from the State Room is unparalleled and we wanted to make that the focus of the space, so we kept the lighting simple and natural to bring the city lights in. Our colors of blush and silver highlighted the space, without overpowering it.”

Congratulations Stacey and Evan! Thank you for choosing Person + Killian to be a part of your celebration!

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of photographing Sarah and Jake’s winter wedding in Boston. We started the day with the couple getting ready at the Intercontinental Hotel. Sarah got ready with her bridesmaids and family before her first look with Jake. It was a beautiful clear day in the city, and we were able to take formal photos outside, on Boston’s historic waterfront, just steps outside the Intercontinental.

The couple’s traditional catholic ceremony was at the Sacred Heart Church. The church was transformed, adorned in gorgeous ivory and green flowers from Madison Floral, and the sunlight shining through the stained glass windows made it that much more special. After the ceremony, the couple took a classic Boston trolly over to The State Room Boston where they met their guests and were introduced as “Mr. & Mrs. Clapton” for the first time.

The State Room is absolutely stunning at night, with unmatched views of the Boston harbor and city lights. Sarah and Jake chose to have their reception in the Great Room, which has the most spectacular view of Boston’s skyline through their panoramic glass windows. Their guests experienced the beautiful views and watched as Sarah and Jake shared their first dance. Everyone enjoyed toasts, cake and music from the Eturnity Band as they celebrated into the night.

Thank you to the entire team at The State Room Boston, and congratulations Sarah and Jake!

The State Room Boston Winter Wedding of Sarah and Jake by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

If you’ve ever had the chance to attend an event at The State Room Boston in the evening, when you can see the busy city streets lit up from 33 stories above it all, you know it’s absolutely breathtaking. Photographing the Boston State Room Wedding of Lindsay + Bradley was exactly that, magical and romantic with a classic Boston feel.

Lindsay got ready at the luxurious and historic Langham Hotel, where she also had her  joyous first look with the groom. The rain cleared just in time to take formals in the beautiful misty afternoon, so we headed to Post Office Square with the couple and our cameras to capture special moments with Lindsay, Bradley and their families.

The ceremony and reception were at the State Room and the evening was radiant with a sense of traditional elegance and classic Boston charm. Guests were floored by the most spectacular view of Boston’s skyline through a panoramic glass wall 20 ft high and 120 ft across. Gorgeous, soft and elegant ivory and green florals graced the table tops in varying centerpieces from Sean at La Folie Fleur. Everyone enjoyed toasts, cake, laughter and fun as the couple and their guests danced into the late night.

Thank you to the entire team at the State Room Boston for another flawless event, and congratulations Lindsay + Bradley!

When Liz and Rob were looking for their perfect Boston wedding venue, they wanted a location that really showcased the beauty of the city. Their summer wedding at the State Room gave their guests an unforgettable night in Boston with one of the best views in the entire city.

The bride and groom both got ready at the nearby Langham Hotel and the first look took place in Boston’s beautiful Post Office Square just across the street. Before heading to the State Room for the ceremony we spent some time taking photos of the couple with their wedding party in the beautiful surroundings before the short walk over to State Street.

The late afternoon wedding ceremony took place in the State Room Boston’s Great Room, overlooking the city 33 stories below. Liz and Rob said their “I do”s underneath a traditional wedding Chuppah, interwoven with beautiful white and purple flowers. After the ceremony, guests moved upstairs to enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres while the Great Room was transformed for the reception.

The Great Room was lit with a wash of purple uplights and tables were topped with a mix of short and tall floral arrangements in various shades of purple and green. Guests enjoyed an energetic Hora, toasts, and parent dances, as well as the gorgeous view of the sunset (followed by a spectacular supermoon) through the State Room’s floor-to-ceiling windows. The dance floor was packed all night as friends and family celebrated with this wonderful couple.

Thank you to the team at the State Room Boston, and to Liz, Rob and their families for being so great to work with. Congratulations Liz and Rob!

Alyssa + Dan first met at Boston University where they were both a part of the track team. Seven years later, their summer wedding at the State Room Boston showcased their love, their alma mater, and the city that they call home!

The bride and groom started the day getting ready at the Langham Hotel in Downtown Boston. Daniel surprised Alyssa with a fun gift — a custom pair of white Nike running shoes with purple accents to match their wedding colors. The shoes even had their wedding date and wedding hashtag printed on the back! They decided not to see each other before the wedding, so we went straight to Boston University’s beautiful Marsh Chapel to start the ceremony. Because both Alyssa + Daniel are Boston University alum, this historic BU wedding chapel was the perfect location for their afternoon wedding ceremony. Following the ceremony, we stayed around the chapel to capture formals with the couple’s family and wedding party and took advantage of the beautiful Boston University campus before heading to the State Room Boston to start the celebration. We made a quick stop en route to the State Room at Boston’s Post Office Square for some photos with Alyssa + Dan before joining the rest of the guests at the cocktail hour.

The evening reception took place in the State Room Boston’s Harborside Ballroom, 33 stories high above Boston’s bustling downtown. The panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows made for a stunning view of the Boston harbor and city below, and the couple chose colors of white and ivory with fun lavender and dark purple accents for their decor. They described their wedding day inspiration as “modern city” — clean and chic. Following a first dance, toasts, and a traditional cake cutting, guests packed the dance floor to celebrate with this wonderful couple!

A very special thank you to the entire State Room Boston team for another flawless event. Congratulations Alyssa + Dan on your beautiful Boston wedding day!

Earlier this month we had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Katelyn and Kevin who wed near their house in South Boston. Before the ceremony, Katelyn and the bridesmaids got ready at her parents house in Canton while Kevin and the groomsmen got ready at their home just blocks from the church.

Following their beautiful afternoon ceremony, the wedding party boarded a trolly and headed to Post Office Square in Downtown Boston for formal photographs. PO Square is one of our favorite locations to photograph in the city and is located just around the corner from the State Room Boston where the reception was held. Before the newlyweds joined cocktail hour, we took a moment for a few more photographs on State Street overlooking the Old State House.

While guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the balcony they took in the view of the city as the sun started to set. The always gorgeous view was extra spectacular as the rare super moon shined bright in the background throughout the evening celebration. After dinner, Sweet Tooth and the Sugarbabies opened the dance floor and kept the party going throughout the night.

Congratulations Katelyn and Kevin, thank you for having us there to capture your beautiful and fun wedding celebration and thank you to the team at the State Room for always being so wonderful work with!
