Every year it comes back, and every year we’re just as excited as we were last time. That’s right — summer has finally returned to Boston! At this gorgeous Boston summer wedding, we celebrated with Maria and Ryan. For the bride and groom, the day was all about family and friends and celebrating their relationship in the best of company. When we asked Maria and Ryan to describe how they envisioned their summer wedding day they used words like “chic”, “elegant”, and “classic”. But above all they used the word emotional — and they were right on the money!

Maria (an oncology nurse at Dana-Farber) and Ryan (an ice hockey forward playing in the American Hockey League) surrounded themselves with a large wedding party for the day’s celebration. Eight bridesmaids, eight groomsmen, and eight little nieces and nephews started the day with the bride and groom getting ready at the Fairmont Copley Plaza.

The couple became husband and wife in a full Catholic Mass ceremony at the beautiful St. Cecilia Church. We took full advantage of the sunny summer afternoon after the ceremony for some formal photos with the newlyweds and their wedding party throughout Copley Square, before heading across to the Fairmont Copley Plaza for the evening’s reception. The Fairmont Copley Plaza Ballroom was elegantly transformed with classic white linens and tall white floral centerpieces, touches of gold detail, and stunning purple lighting. Family and friends could not wait to eat, drink, toast, dance, and celebrate with this wonderful couple — and we were honored to be there right alongside them!

Special thanks to Alice and her team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza, Paula and the Marrero Events team, and to Maria and Ryan for including us in your truly special summer Boston wedding day!

It’s officially wedding planning season and with that comes new issues of all of our favorite magazines on newsstands. We are excited to see the real wedding of Ashley and Brian in the latest issue of Boston Weddings Magazine.

Story by: Jule Suratt – “When the bride-to-be Ashley Swafford was searching for a photographer to capture her wedding to fiancé Brian Petruzzelli, she had just one request: a portrait in the middle of Boylston Street. “If you can make that happen,” she told shutterbug Jill Person, “you’re my girl.”

Ashley had always felt a strong connection to New England, but living in Las Vegas, it was hard to find someone who shared her affinity for the region. So when she met Brian at a mutual friend’s party, she instantly connected with the Dedham native. “He had that Boston swagger about him,” she says. “He was a tough guy with a soft side.”

A year and a half after they started dating, Ashley, who travels frequently for work, was grounded by a massive snowstorm in Springfield, Missouri. She eventually got back to Las Vegas – 12 hours later. Brian met her at the airport holding flowers. “I used to joke that the airport was the only place I could see her, that had to catch her either coming or going,” he says. So he did, getting down on one knee and proposing before a crowd. “I said yes.” says Ashley, “once I caught my breath. It was magical.”

Thank you to Boston Weddings for featuring this beautiful wedding and to Eric Czerlonka and his team at Czerlonka Event Design & Management for sending this lovely couple our way.

Thank you to this A-team for creating the wedding of Ashley and Brian’s dreams that we were able to capture:

Venue: Mandarin Oriental Hotel Boston; Planning and Coordination: Czerlonka Event Design & Management; Flowers: Marc Hall Design; Lighting: Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design; Band: Night Shift Entertainment – Soho; Bride’s Dress: Vera Wang; Inbal Dror, Blush Bridal (reception); Calligraphy: Suzanne Telage; Invitations: Shopannabelle’s; Hair: Escape Salon Aveda; Makeup: Chanel, Saks Fifth Avenue; Menswear: Tom Ford; Officiant: Father Kevin O’Leary – Cathedral of the Holy Cross; Rentals: Luxe Event Rentals; Wedding Bands: Tiffany & Co.

Laura and Mike wanted to capture a winter wonderland for their January wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza. Little did they know they would have an actual snow filled day from start to finish. Because this was a destination wedding for the couple who live in DC, almost all of their guests were already staying in the hotel. This meant everyone could enjoy watching the snow from the comfort of the beautiful hotel as it fell in Copley Square. We were beyond thrilled when Laura asked us to take her and Mike outside for some photos of the two of them. We even headed back out with the wedding party who were all great sports so that we could capture some fun shots with the group and it was well worth it!

Laura and Mike chose to incorporate the gold throughout the venue and mix in blush tones for their color pallet. In addition, everything including the flowers, styles, food, venue was inspired by Laura’s love of France. The traditional Jewish ceremony took place in the Oval Room under a gorgeous chuppah designed by Lotus Floral Events and lit perfectly by Suzanne B. Lowell and her team at Suzanne B. Lowell Lighting Design.

Following the ceremony, guests continued the celebration into the night in the ballroom. Planner and coordinator Janie Haas and her team at  Janie Haas Events created the perfect look for Laura and Mike.  From Janie: “Instead of using whites and silvers on the round tables, we opted to use a heavy gorgeous silvery green/gray embroidered fabric on the round tables which were accented with creamy flowers with high white branches. While the fast falling snow outside cooperated with the look that we were trying to achieve inside, our goal was to bring the feeling of romance and dreaminess into the ballroom. Suzanne’s lighting was magical as it lit crystals in both the centerpieces and the stage.”

Congratulations Laura and Mike. We are absolutely thrilled to have had the chance to start off 2017 with such a fantastic group! A big thank you to Alice Fay and her team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza and to Janie, Maria and the team at Janie Haas Events!

Fairmont Copley Hotel Winter Wedding with Janie Haas Events by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662 – [email protected] / [email protected]

We see a lot of beautiful things in our line of work; this Four Seasons Hotel Boston Wedding with Marc Hall Design is exquisite. The couple, Liz and Mike, wanted a beautiful affair that had an air of ease and intimacy. Starting the day in a suite at the Four Seasons, Liz was in full swing getting ready. Mike was likewise prepping in his room where friends and family popped by for a quick hello before he dressed to meet his bride.

With such a beautiful day, we headed over to the Boston Public Gardens to capture the First Look. Surrounded by the abundant greenery the gardens have to offer, we took this time to capture some formals before heading back to the hotel to wrap up the wedding party formals.

The Grand Ballroom was transformed with an archway full of gorgeous, lush blooms in shades of whites and creams for the ceremony. Liz’s brother officiated as the couple exchanged vows in the presence of their loved ones. After the ceremony, we made our way to the Aujourd’hui Room for cocktail hour while the Grand Ballroom underwent another transformation.

First to greet the guests was an escort card table in the round. A magnificent floral display of roses and orchids accented with candles. Between the lighting, linens and beautiful centerpieces, the reception space felt sophisticated with warm tones of creams, blushes and gold. As the evening progressed, it was clear that the couple and their guests was enjoying themselves. From the decident dessert display and fun photo booth to the packed dance floor, what’s not to love?

Thank you Liz and Mike for letting Person + Killian be a part of this beautiful day! As always a big thank you to Philip Deschamps for being an absolute joy to work with.

We always love photographing events at the Four Seasons Hotel and we couldn’t have been happier to return for Mia + Corbin’s Summer Four Seasons Boston Wedding! The couple each got ready at their parents homes and then proceeded to the church for their ceremony. Everyone in attendance couldn’t help but smile as Mia + Corbin stood in front of their loved ones and exchanged their wedding vows. The very church Mia’s parents got married in many years ago.

Following the ceremony we headed into Boston, where we took the family and wedding party to Boston Public Garden on a gorgeous summer day for photographs. Before heading into cocktail hour we took a few minutes to capture some classic photographs of the newlyweds on the Four Seasons grand staircase.

Soft light, a classic palette of white and gold, breathtaking floral arrangements and the artful lighting design of Suzanne B. Lowell made a stunning statement in the Four Seasons Hotel ballroom. Our happy newlyweds and wedding party gathered on the dance floor for a touching first dance. The evenings festivities were overflowing with love, laughter, family and friends.

A big thank you to Philip Deschamps and his team at the Four Seasons for always being a pleasure to work with. Thank you Mia + Corbin for choosing Person + Killian to document your special day. Congratulations to this beautiful couple, we wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness!

Want to beautifully wrap luxury, elegance, and sophistication all up into one? Look no further because the talent of Czerlonka Event Design & Management and Marc Hall Design for Jenn and Michael’s wedding at the Ritz-Carlton Boston will be sure to wow.

Our sweet, head-over-heels in love couple, Jenn and Michael, pulled at everyone’s heartstrings during their beautiful traditional Jewish ceremony. The couple was joined under a Marc Hall custom-made birch chuppah bursting with cascading lush hydrangeas and orchids.

A softly sophisticated palate of ivory, cream, touches of blush, and silver and crystal accents of glamour transformed the Ritz ballroom into a simply dreamlike setting. From our gorgeous bride’s striking Marc Hall couture custom floor-length bouquet, to statement floral centerpieces, and a stunning 4-tiered cake of delicate floral piping, this wedding was one jaw-dropping beautiful detail after another.

A big thank you to Eric Czerlonka and Vanessa Michael and her team at the Ritz. Congratulations again Jenn and Michael. It was truly an honor documenting your special day and we wish you a lifetime full of love and happiness!

Shelley and Spencer wanted a riverfront Boston wedding that would truly capture the essence of this beautiful city. The Royal Sonesta Boston, with it’s scenic views of the famed Charles River was the perfect venue to grant that wish. We were thrilled to join the couple and their guests for their celebration!

Before the ceremony, the couple decided to have a moment to themselves. This touching moment took place outside, down by the Charles. Shelley looked stunning and elegant in her James Clifford lace gown. The scenic Boston city skyline was a breathtaking backdrop for their formal portraits. Taking advantage of the sunny and warm weather, the couple were joined by the wedding party for some formal and fun photo opportunities.

Under an intricate floral chuppah, featuring mixed fresh flowers and draping vines, Shelley and Spencer were wed  in a traditional and moving Jewish ceremony.

The Grand Ballroom was aglow in candle light, illuminating the modern floral touches and elegant stemware that sparkled throughout the room. With romantic twinkle lights setting the mood, the newlyweds had their first dance, before their guests joined in with an enthusiastic Hora!

Thank you to Jim Arnello, his talented team at the Royal Sonesta, and Carol Silverston of the Original Touch for coordinating this gorgeous event. Congratulations and Mazel Tov Shelley and Spencer!

Amy + Craig had a spectacular wedding weekend and all events took place at the beautiful InterContinental Hotel Boston. The celebration began with the Ketubah signing and rehearsal on Friday evening and we were back Saturday afternoon for the ceremony and reception.

The grounds outside in the back of the hotel made for the perfect location for Amy and Craig’s emotional and fun first look. We spent some time with the couple, their family and wedding party outside before heading inside for some more photographs in the gorgeous lobby of the hotel. We even had the opportunity to take a couple of pictures of the bride and groom in the hotel champagne lounge before the ceremony.

The Rose Kennedy Ballroom was transformed for the ceremony with dramatic lighting that highlighted the floral arrangements lining the isle to the stunning custom designed chuppah by Carol Silverston and her team. After the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed hors devours in the foyer while the ballroom was once again transformed for the reception.

Various tables shapes including square, rectangle and rounds filled the ballroom with several different linen and table decor designs. The blush colors mixed with gold and cream popped against the black dance floor and uplighting. The band Eye 2 Eye welcomed guests back into the ballroom for a night full of dinner, heart felt toasts, dancing – and more dancing. Towards the end of the night, guests were wowed with a custom desert display that had been setup behind the drapes.

We had a fabulous time capturing such a fun and energetic group throughout the events of their wedding weekend. Thank you so much to Paul, Michelle and their team at the InterContinental Hotel Boston for always being such a pleasure to work with, to Carol, Jodi and their incredible team and congratulations again to Amy + Craig!

We could not have asked for a more gorgeous spring day to celebrate Nicole + Pat’s wedding at the Omni Parker House Boston. The couple was looking for the feeling of their wedding day to be soft and romantic, with colors of gold and blush pink and a fun “city chic” atmosphere! The Omni Parker House Boston’s location right in the heart of the city was perfect for that bustling downtown city atmosphere, and with the nearby parks and historic locations we had lots of opportunity for unique wedding photos with the bride and groom.

Our day started with the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready at the Omni Parker House Boston, while Pat and his groomsmen got ready and hung out at their apartment in South Boston. When everyone was ready, we met up in the Boston Public Garden for the bride and groom’s first look, while the smiling wedding party looked on from a distance.  We took advantage of the amazing weather and had time to utilize a few different locations in the Public Garden for formal wedding party photos before heading down to the Gate of Heaven church in South Boston for the ceremony.

Following the ceremony, we took the newlyweds to their neighborhood for a few more photos — including a stop at their favorite park, Thomas Park, just a few blocks away from their South Boston apartment. We then made the trip back into downtown Boston for some pictures in front of the historic Old City Hall on Tremont Street  before heading back inside the Omni Parker House Boston to begin the evening reception.

The Omni Parker House Rooftop Ballroom was transformed into an elegant spring wedding reception with a mix of bright pink high and low floral centerpieces, and gold ballroom chairs. We loved the custom touches Nicole and Pat included throughout their reception.  Gold-framed signs displayed their special wedding hashtag and signature wedding cocktail — named the “Southie Wildcat” to pay homage to the bride and groom’s neighborhood and alma mater. Following the first dance and toasts from wedding party, we were able to sneak away with Nicole and Pat to get a few photos on the Omni Parker House’s beautiful rooftop, which overlooks the city with an unbeatable view of the Boston skyline. We came back inside for the cake cutting, parent dances, and a night full of dancing to celebrate this wonderful couple.

Special thanks to the team at the Omni Parker House Boston for a wonderful evening, and to Nicole + Pat for letting us be a part of your beautiful city chic spring wedding day! We had a blast!

Erin and Hayes really took advantage of this beautiful summer season at their Fairmont Copley Plaza Wedding in late July. They incorporated lots of fresh summer flowers and soft summer colors into their classic and elegant ballroom wedding.

Erin’s beautiful summer bouquet was full of white roses and peonies, and accented with subtle hints of purple and green. Her bridesmaids wore dark navy chiffon dresses and carried stunning bouquets in shades of creme, purple, and blush. The bride and groom decided not to see each other before the wedding, so we headed straight to the gorgeous chapel at St. Cecilia’s once the ladies were ready for the traditional Catholic ceremony!

We made the quick trip from St. Cecilia’s to the Boston Public Garden following the ceremony for some sunny outdoor wedding photos with Erin, Hayes, and their wedding party. The summer weather could not have been more perfect for the outdoor formals! The evening reception took place in the Fairmont Copley Plaza’s Oval Room — the gold and champagne colored walls, curtains, and crystal chandelier were matched perfectly by simple textured white linens and beautiful summer floral centerpieces. The newlyweds chose a mix of tall arrangements in elegant clear vases and smaller mixes of the same flowers. The summer flowers were white, pink, and soft blush, and the tables were paired with gold chiavari ballroom chairs matched with white cushions.

After the romantic first dance and toasts from friends and family, Erin and Hayes cut their gorgeous four-tiered white wedding cake — decorated with cascading creme-colored roses and displayed on a bright gold stand, surrounded by soft blush summer rose petals.

We could not have asked for a more beautiful summer wedding, with a perfect mix of classic elegance, traditional details, and fun summer colors. As always a big thank you to Alice Fay and her entire team at the Fairmont Copley Plaza for always being so lovely to work with! Cheers to another beautiful event, and congratulations Erin + Hayes!

The 2013 wedding season was in full swing last week, with gorgeous sunny weather and a beautiful wedding at the Fairmont Copley Plaza!

Lina and Jonathan couldn’t have asked for a more perfect spring day for their Boston wedding. Jonathan spent the morning, getting ready with his groomsmen at home, while Lina and her bridesmaids spent the morning at one of our favorite venues, the Fairmont Copley Plaza! The couple chose to have their Catholic wedding ceremony at St. Josephs Parish, their home church in Medford, and come back to Boston after the “I do”s for family pictures and the evening party!

The full mass ceremony ended in the afternoon, leaving us plenty of time to travel back to Boston before the Fairmont Copley Plaza reception. We took the newlyweds, their family, and the whole wedding party into the Boston Public Garden for wedding pictures and family formals, and the sun never stopped shining! We love how spring weddings in Boston give us the chance to go outside, and take full advantage of the great weather in some beautiful outdoor spaces like the Boston Public Garden.

Lina and Jonathan’s wedding reception was held in the Fairmont Copley Plaza Grand Ballroom, which the bride described as “black tie chic”. The romantic flowers were accented with pops of metallic, and the long table arrangements were displayed in bright mirrored window boxes. They had all the elements of a classic black tie wedding, with a great modern twist!

Congratulations Lina and Jonathan and thank you for trusting P+K to document this special day! We just adored working with you and your families!

Person + Killian Photography recently photographed the Four Seasons Boston wedding of Amy and Sean and we had a blast with the couple from the get-go when we arrived. It was a fantastic family celebration for the bride and groom who call both Boston and San Fransisco home.

Both Amy and Sean grew up around Boston and met after moving back from college. Amy had promised herself she would move to San Fransisco after college and was set on it. But, then she met Sean and they were having such a good time together she kept putting off the move. Finally she decided to had to go. Sean, told Amy’s dad and the rest of their families that “wherever Amy goes, I go”, sold his car, packed a bag and made the 3,000 mile trek across the country. The couple have spent the last few years living in San Fransisco together but both have a special place in their hearts for Boston so they knew it was the perfect place for their wedding. We love that Amy told us “Since Sean moved to San Fransisco for me, he gets the “next move” and wherever Sean goes , I go! And, I know I will be happy anywhere!”

The colors of the day were navy blue and coral with flowers in romantic shades of apricot and coral and accented with soft whites and creams. The couple also incorporated their Celtic Knot throughout their stationary, save the dates and continued through the ceremony program and escort cards. Even the candy bar at the end of the night was designed with various shades of navy and coral/peach.

Since Amy and Sean are honeymooning in Italy, they created a Prosecco Bar for cocktail hour, Caprese salad and handmade ravioli for the first course of dinner.
