We were thrilled to be back at the State Room Boston for the gorgeous wedding of Sarah and Mark — the couple mixed classic, modern colors of black and white with fun pops of purple for their spring wedding.

We joined Sarah at the nearby Millennium Hotel to get the day started. We photographed Sarah and her bridesmaids in the lobby of the Millennium while we waited for Mark for the first look. The beautiful red furniture and natural wooden walls of the lounge in the Millennium Hotel was the perfect setting for a romantic and intimate first look. After the first look, we spent some time taking formal portraits with their wedding party in the lobby of the hotel before starting the walk over to the State Room.

Faneuil Hall was the perfect backdrop for some classic Boston photos of Sarah and Mark. We took advantage of the beautiful spring day in Boston, and got some great photographs with the wedding party outside of Quincy Market before continuing our walk next door to the State Room.

The wedding ceremony took place high above downtown Boston in the State Room’s Great Room, overlooking the beautiful Boston waterfront and city below. The hallway leading into the Great Room was customized with a gallery of personal images of the couple and their family for guests to enjoy as they walked into the ceremony. Floral arrangements of purple and white orchids flanked either side of the altar, and guests sat in classic chiavari ballroom chairs to watch Sarah and Mark say their “I do”s.

While guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the upper level of the Great Room, the ceremony space was transformed for the evening reception. White linens were paired with classic chocolate brown chairs for a clean and modern look, and bright purple floral centerpieces gave each and every table a wonderful pop of color. As the sun started to set over the city, the walls lit up with a beautiful wash of purple uplighting and the votive candles on the tabletops added to the warm glow. Following their first dance, toasts and dinner, the dance floor was opened and guests celebrated alongside the newlyweds.

Special thank you to Sarah and Mark for including us in your beautiful wedding day, and for being so much fun to work with. Congratulations!

We always love seeing what’s new and trendy each wedding season. As we kick off this new year of Boston weddings in 2014, we were happy to pay a visit to the State Room Boston where Rentals Unlimited was showcasing some of their newest items.

Rentals Unlimited put together three wedding tables for us to photograph in the State Room Boston’s stunning Great Room, 33 stories above downtown Boston. Each of the designs featured clean colors of black, white and silver and ranged from chic and modern to classic and elegant. The first table was a long, rectangular mirror-top with clear mirage chairs. A mix of black goblets and classic crystal was paired with white chargers, black and shell napkins, all accented with black candle pillers.

The second table design was a traditional round with shimmering white linen. A mix of classic crystal and opaque white goblets were paired with silver-lined chargers for a modern twist, and the black vase and white orchid centerpiece added a wonderful pop of contrast. The final combination featured a textured silver and white linen and a beautiful shimmery silver charger plate. The clean, simple colors all worked so wonderfully together and each design was unique, modern, and elegant.

Below are a few images from the day that we wanted to share for some #WeddingWednesday inspiration!

We aren’t ready for summer to be over quite yet! We were so happy to be celebrating another beautiful wedding at the State Room Boston with Amanda + Greg. They chose classic colors of black, white, and cobalt blue for an elegant and colorful wedding day, and added a fun pop of purple with some gorgeous arrangements from Winston Flowers.

Amanda looked absolutely stunning in a lace Monique Lhullier wedding gown, accented perfectly by her bridesmaid’s dresses in a deep blue. All the ladies wore sparkly silver heels and carried summer arrangements of white, blue, and purple flowers tied with blue and white ribbons. Greg went with a classic black 3-piece suit, while his groomsmen accented their black jackets with blue vests and ties to match the bridal party. The ladies got ready at the nearby Marriot Long Wharf, so we took advantage of the perfect sunny day to get some bridal party shots out on Boston Harbor before heading to the State Room.

The wedding ceremony took place in the State Room’s Great Room, 33 stories high above downtown Boston. The room was set with classic dark ballroom chairs, and two stunning blue and purple arrangements from Winston Flowers stood on either side of the clean white altar. Following the “I do”s, we took the newlyweds out into downtown Boston to get some city wedding shots in the historic Quincy Market.

When we returned, the Great Room had been transformed into a beautiful summer wedding reception. Each white table had a pop of fun color, with a mix of high and low floral centerpieces in colors of bright purple, blue, and green. The unique square wedding cake was accented with blue ribbons on each tier, and covered in cobalt blue flowers and petals. Guests cheered as Amanda + Greg entered the Great Room for their first dance, and everyone enjoyed dinner, dancing, and toasts before the party really got going.

Once the sun set, the State Room was lit up with beautiful blue and purple up lights that filled the room with color, and the dance floor was open for guests to party all night! We had such a blast sharing this beautiful summer wedding day with Amanda + Greg, thank you both for being so fun and easy to work with!

We had so much fun capturing this beautiful wedding day with Jen and Greg — the bride looked beautiful, the weather could not have been better, and everyone was so happy to be together celebrating this amazing couple. The bride and groom chose the State Room Boston as their wedding venue, perched high above the heart of downtown Boston at 60 State Street with a spectacular view of the city from 33 stories up!

The happy couple and bridal party got ready for the day in the nearby Hilton Boston Downtown. Jen + Greg chose colors of gold, white, and soft blush as their wedding inspiration, and you could see it right away in Jen’s beautiful bouquet. She carried an arrangement of white calla lilies and soft pink roses, and her bridesmaids matched perfectly in summery pink dresses. The bride and groom had their traditional “first look” in one of the Hilton suites before heading out to the trolley.

We took advantage of the perfect August weather and made the quick trip to the nearby Post Office Square in downtown Boston for some formal wedding photography. We got some great pictures of Jen, Greg and their wedding party outside in the sunshine before hopping back in the trolley to the State Room Boston.

The wedding ceremony took place in the State Room Boston’s Great Room, with beautiful black ballroom chairs, two gorgeous floral arrangements on either side of the altar, and an aisle lined with pink rose petals. The Great Room’s floor-to-ceiling windows provided the perfect backdrop as the happy couple said their “I do”s.

After the ceremony, guests enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres upstairs on the Mezzanine while the Great Room was transformed for the evening wedding reception. The tables were topped with shimmery champagne linens paired with towering white and pink floral centerpieces.

As the sun started to set, the view of the city skyline became even more spectacular outside. The newlyweds’ closest friends and family gave heartfelt toasts, while an impromptu fireworks show from the city below filled the sky with amazing fireworks! Jen told us that the exact same thing happened at her Bat Mitzvah years earlier, so the firework display was extra special for her.

After dinner, toasts, and parent dances, the dance floor was opened up for all the guests to enjoy — and they certainly did! We could tell that everyone was so happy to be enjoying this day with Jen and Greg, and the fun and energetic atmosphere lasted late into the night. A big thank you to the newlyweds for being so fun and easy to work with, and to all their friends and family for including us in this wonderful day. Congratulations Jen + Greg!

Winter was in the air at Jenn + Mike’s beautiful State Room Boston wedding. Look closely and you’ll find snowflakes everywhere in this wedding — and not just from the snow outside that Jenn was hoping for! The little winter details popped up on everything from the invitations to the bridesmaid’s earrings to the bride’s bouquet.

After getting ready at the InterContinental Boston and their first look, Jenn and Mike braved the snow outside to get some adorable pictures together before heading over to the State Room.

The ceremony took place in the State Room’s Harborside Room. Crystal snowflakes hung from the ceremony arch, and dangled from the floral arrangements and candles and white hydrangeas lined the isle. Following the ceremony, guests moved to the Cityside Room for cocktails. The room was beautifully decorated with white linens, pink and purple floral arrangements, and Boston themed escort cards featuring different T stops around the city.

While guests enjoyed cocktails, the Harborside Room was transformed into a beautiful winter reception space featuring gorgeous blue linens, silver chairs, and candlelit white centerpieces. By the time the evening was over, the city of Boston was covered in a sheet of white snow just as the bride and groom had been hoping for when they chose their winter wedding date.

Thank you to Jenn and Mike for having us capture your beautiful day, State Room Boston and the amazing team at Hopple Popple!

Jamie and Mitch decided upon a “destination wedding” in Boston Ma. The couple wanted to return to the city in which they met while attending college at Northeastern University. They wanted their wedding to reflect the strong sense of family they each value and for everyone to “love Boston as much as they do!”

The day started out with getting ready photographs at the Ames Hotel. Jamie refused to let the rain and fog ruin her day! She was happy, relaxed and excited to get married. She wore a beautiful Vera Wang wedding gown and amazing yellow Christian Louboutin patent leather heals. Her bridesmaids wore gray gowns paired with yellow and white flowers, which were a prefect accent to her color scheme and inspiration of steel gray, yellow and white. This was all based around the fact that Jamie “LOVES” the color yellow!

The couple chose the charming and historic Old North Church in Boston’s North End for their wedding ceremony. The church is the oldest standing in Boston and its bells are the oldest in any American church.

After Jamie let us take formal pictures of her in the rain (Thank you!), we then headed over to one of Boston’s most scenic wedding venues, The State Room. The reception was held in the Harborside Room and was a perfect way for all of their out of town guests to see panoramic views of the entire city!

The night was certainly filled with lots of love, laughs and dancing! One of our favorite moments was when Mitch surprised Jamie and sang the song “When Stars Go Blue”. What a beautiful moment and we were thrilled to be there to capture it all! Congratulations to such a fantastic couple. It was a pleasure working with you and we cannot thank you enough for trusting Person + Killian Photography to capture this day!

One of our favorite things about photographing Boston weddings is having the chance to work alongside so many wonderful colleagues.  For Jessica and Rob’s State Room Boston wedding, this was no exception.

The day started at the Omni Parker House where Jessica and her bridesmaids got ready followed by the couple’s first look. Capturing the day on video along side us were the talented ladies of AfterImage Productions. The elegant fall look that the bride wanted came together when the bouquets were hand delivered by the talented Marc Hall of Winston Flowers.

After some formal photographs in the Boston Public Garden, it was off to the State Room for the ceremony and reception. Both the Harborside Room and the Great Room were elegantly decorated with the perfect fall décor that wowed the guests as they arrived.

Below are just a handful of our favorite images from the day. Congratulations Jessica and Rob and thank you for including Person + Killian Photography as part of your wedding day dream team!

As a Boston-based photographer, Person + Killian Photography has the opportunity to work in some of Boston’s most beautiful and unique venues, like The State Room Boston with its breathtaking views.

Although, better than the views and the venues are the families Person + Killian have the opportunity to work with, like the Watts family.  The minute Mike, Jessie and her parents walked into our Newbury Street studio, Lauren knew they were special.  It was obvious they are loving and sweet and looking forward to their beautiful fall wedding.

The email Jessie’s mom sent Lauren after the wedding, says it all.
 

Lauren,
Jessie loved having you shoot her wedding – you had her from “hello” as the movie goes- as she just felt that she clicked with you from the first meeting.  We knew your
personality was a great fit but we were so impressed with your focus and
professionalism during the event.  I know your pictures are going to be fabulous!
Laurie

Congratulations Jessie + Mike! Can’t wait for you to see the rest of your images! Your disk is already in the mail.
