For a summer wedding in Boston there is nothing quite like being out on Boston Harbor. Victoria and Yoni, affectionately referred to by friends and family as “Yontoria”, chose the Boston Harbor Hotel for their wedding celebration. They took full advantage of the gorgeous indoor spaces as well as the Boston Harbor right outside for all aspects of their wedding day.

From getting ready in the hotel suites to the wedding ceremony in the ballroom, there were so many places for celebration.  The waterfront, the boats, and of course the classic grand archway were all perfect places for formal photos of the family and romantic photos of the bride and groom.

Throughout the entire day, what stood out more than anything else was Victoria and Yoni’s fun-loving spirits, and their joy at being able to celebrate with their friends and family. It was a day full of love and laughter, and we were so thankful to be there to capture it all.

Special thank you to to Ted Daniels and his team at the Boston Harbor Hotel, to Jodi Raphael of Jodi Raphael Events, and of course to Victoria and Yoni! Mazel Tov!

Winter is here, but there is still time to share more of our recent weddings! This classic Fall Boston Harbor Hotel wedding combined the gorgeous season with the classic Greek traditions of the bride and groom, all on the beautiful Boston waterfront.

Lauren and Nick chose to have their Fall wedding day at the Boston Harbor Hotel — the bride and her bridesmaids got ready with dresses, hair, and makeup in the hotel’s Presidential Suite while the groom and groomsmen started their day elsewhere in the hotel. Once everyone was ready, Lauren and Nick met outside on the waterfront for a sweet first look moment. We took advantage of the sunny Fall day and snapped some photos with the couple outside on the harbor — using the beautiful waterfront and Boston Harbor Hotel as a backdrop. We were soon joined by the couple’s family and bridal party for group photos in front of the hotel as well as on the greenway across the street. The bridesmaid’s wine red dresses matched perfectly with the fall colors outside, and we could not have asked for a more beautiful day in Boston.

From the hotel, we headed to the Greek Orthodox Cathedral for the wedding ceremony. Lauren and Nick said their “I do”s in a traditional Greek Orthodox ceremony, followed by a receiving line and a bubble exit out of the church as husband and wife! Everyone headed back to the Boston Harbor Hotel for cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the newly renovated Wharf Room Foyer, then into the Wharf Room Ballroom for the wedding reception.

The couple chose a classic and elegant color palette for their wedding decor, with classic linens and white floral centerpieces to match the white dance floor. Each of the ballroom’s pillars was decorated with a touch of Autumn colors, contrasting perfectly with the clean light decor. The reception was full of fun, celebration, and lots of dancing. A traditional Greek family dance was held after the newlywed’s first dance, which packed the dance floor and kept everyone dancing and celebrating all night long.

We were so happy to be a part of this classic Fall wedding at the Boston Harbor Hotel, special thanks to Lauren, Nick, and all their friends and family for such a wonderful celebration! A big thank you to Michael Boivin for always being a pleasure to work with!

We recently had the privilege of capturing the timeless Boston Harbor Hotel wedding of Franchesca and Danny. While prepping for the day was underway, the ladies were getting ready complete with glam team, champagne, and puppies! The bride wore a gown with a sweetheart neckline and delicate beadwork complemented by shoes that brought in a pink pop of color. Nearby, the gentlemen got ready, dressing in classic tuxes. Especially important to the couple was to be married in Franchesca’s family congregation, Sacred Heart Church. Located in the heart of Boston’s North End, the wedding ceremony was traditional and timeless. Immediately after, we grabbed some fun shots complete with a bubble send-off and formals on the greenway.

Guests enjoyed cocktail hour up in the Boston Harbor Hotel‘s Rotunda where the views of the harbor and city are one-of-a-kind. Following cocktails, we made our way to the Wharf Room. The couple selected a light, romantic color palette with floral arrangements in whites, creams and greens. Candlelight, accents of gold, and romantic amber lighting tied the space altogether. The atmosphere was festive and light with touches of glamour. As the couple enjoyed dinner and toasts (and a serenade!), the evening progressed full of laughter and happy memories. Thank you to Franchesca and Danny for letting Person + Killian Photography capture your important day.  Congratulations, again!

Also, a big thanks to the team of vendors for the entire wedding and the uncompromising service of Michael Boivin and his team at the Boston Harbor Hotel.

We are always thrilled to be back to the BHH, a venue known for its elegant affairs, and we couldn’t be more excited to have joined Giselle + Brian for a beautiful and classic Boston Harbor Hotel wedding.

After getting ready and a picture perfect “first look”, we headed to St Ignatius church where the wedding ceremony took place. Shortly after the ceremony, we headed back to the BHH for cocktail hour. As the doors opened to the Wharf Room a music filled reception led guests in for a night of family, friends and dancing.

The bride and groom welcomed their guests into the ballroom, adorned with beautiful florals and cool toned accent lighting. The space felt warm and inviting from the golden glow of the natural whites and reds of the floral pieces. The bride and groom celebrated late into the night with not a worry on their minds as the perfect evening came together.

A big thank you to Michael Bovin and his team at the Boston Harbor Hotel for being such a pleasure to work with. Congratulations to Giselle + Brian and thank you for letting us be there to capture your perfect day!

There is nothing we love more than a Boston Harbor Hotel wedding in the winter! Especially when mother nature blesses us with a 60 degree day! Something about the spectacular waterfront and crisp air that makes for an absolutely magical and unforgettable event, and Christina + Chip’s day was just that.

The couple got ready at the Boston Harbor Hotel, where the groom surprised his bride with the sweetest gift, a new puppy (named Gus) and not to mention a fabulous new bag to carry him in! After their loving first look, the entire wedding party headed over to Fan Pier for photos. We absolutely love this amazing cityscape location that perfectly captures the beauty of the Boston Harbor in the background.

Following their ceremony, Christina, Chip and their wedding party headed back to dance the night away! Of course we had to make a stop out front for a classic twinkle light photo. The various lights from the trees and venue made for a magical winter setting.

The ballroom was inviting and warm, filled with touches of white, green and gold. We loved the delicate branches and candles that filled the room. The Wharf Room felt soft and romantic. The evenings festivities were overflowing with love, laughter, family and friends.

A big thank you to the entire team at the Boston Harbor Hotel for another flawless event, and congratulations Christina + Chip!

On a beautiful fall day Megan and Robert’s black and white inspired Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding was both traditional and elegant. Stylish, polished, and bursting with beautiful details, this black and white affair will have everyone saying, “I Do!”

A charming Boston trolley then whisked away our gorgeous newlyweds and wedding party to capture some perfectly playful city shots.

The classically beautiful Boston Harbor Hotel was flawlessly transformed into a vision of black white elegance for Megan and Robert’s stunning wedding reception. With fabulous white and cream florals, chic chalk decor, and simply delightful his and hers signature drinks Megan and Robert’s wedding was chock-full of irresistibly pretty details.

There is nothing we love more than a Boston Harbor Hotel wedding in the fall! Something about the spectacular waterfront and crisp autumn air that makes for an absolutely magical and unforgettable event, and Elise + Kevin’s perfectly classic celebration was just that. The couple got ready at the Boston Harbor Hotel and chose not to see each other until the ceremony, which was a beautiful full mass at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Charlestown, MA. The ornate stained glass windows, high ceiling and intricate architecture of the Church, combined with the beautiful fall florals from Winston Flowers made the ceremony  truly captivating.

After the ceremony we headed over to the Boston public garden to take formal photos of the newlyweds and their families. The  grounds and fall foliage of the garden were the perfect backdrop to capture such special moments for Elise and Kevin. They then they joined their guests for cocktail hour and the reception back at the Boston Harbor Hotel overlooking the gorgeous waterfront.

The ballroom was inviting and warm, filled with exquisite fall decor, ivory and yellow wedding centerpieces with delicate branches and vines and candles. The bride and groom celebrated the night away with their family and friends while enjoying toasts, a beautiful ivory cake topped with fall flowers and dancing to the spectacular Boston band, Kahootz. Thank you to the entire team at the Boston Harbor Hotel for another flawless event, and congratulations Elise and Kevin!

Classic & Elegant Fall Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding – Photographed by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

Amanda + Parker’s beautiful Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding was a great mix of classic, traditional, and personalized — with adorable nautical wedding details and some fun pops of Autumn color perfect for the season! The entire wedding day took place at the Boston Harbor Hotel, perfectly located right on Boston Harbor in the heart of downtown Boston. The Autumn weather could not have been better that day, allowing us to take advantage of the waterfront view for some great formal photos with the bride and groom.

Amanda and her bridesmaids complimented each other beautifully — the ladies wore deep blue (nearly black) strapless bridesmaid dresses, which looked fantastic with the bride’s white strapless gown. Amanda’s bouquet was an assortment of classic white flowers, while the bridal party carried bouquets with pops of bright orange and tied with a navy blue ribbon. We loved the mix of nautical colors with a little touch of Fall — a great combination for this autumn Boston Harbor Hotel wedding!

Amanda + Parker waited to see each other for the first time until the big walk down the aisle, which took place in the Boston Harbor Hotel’s Wharf Room. Two classic candle-lit lanterns stood on either side of the altar, covered with an arrangement of white, green, and orange autumn flowers from Boston’s local Evergreen Florist. The bride and groom exchanged their I Do’s overlooking the beautiful Boston Harbor, and following the ceremony we took the happy newlyweds outside to the waterfront for photos with friends and family.

The sun began to set right as we finished up some romantic shots with Amanda + Parker out on the Harbor, and we moved inside to the transformed Wharf Room at the Boston Harbor Hotel. The evening wedding reception was a beautiful mix of nautical chic and rustic autumn, with a mix of high and low floral arrangements in deep oranges, brown, and white paired with classic candle lanterns. Table names were displayed on a rustic wooden block tied with ship’s rope, featuring a beautiful illustrated sailboat on each, and a navy and white polka-dotted chocolate bar was placed on each guest’s table setting. Even the wedding cake was nautical, wrapped with black ribbon and topped with adorable “bride and groom” anchors for Amanda + Parker.

Thank you to the entire team at the Boston Harbor Hotel for this wonderful wedding day, and to Amanda + Parker for letting us be a part of it!

Kate + Joe described their wedding day as a “black tie summer wedding on the water” — and it turned out to be absolutely picture perfect! They chose the Boston Harbor Hotel as their wedding venue, with the elegant Wharf Room for dinner and dancing, and lots of spots for harbor-side photos it was the perfect place for their formal summer wedding.

Kate and her bridesmaids started the morning at her family house in Wellesley, relaxing and getting dressed and ready for the big day. After the final touches of hair and makeup, Kate’s mom and sister helped her into her gorgeous strapless wedding gown and we headed off to the church. The traditional Catholic wedding ceremony took place at the nearby St. John’s Church in Wellesley, and finished with the happy newlyweds exiting the church to a sea of guests blowing bubbles! Kate and Joe greeted their guests in a traditional receiving line before their friends and family traveled to the Boston Harbor Hotel to begin the party. We stayed at the church with the bride, groom, and their wedding party for some great formal shots outside, as well as some traditional bride and groom car shots in their beautiful white 1937 Packard before making the trip back to Boston.

Before heading inside to the reception, we took advantage of the Boston Harbor Hotel’s beautiful harbor-side view and iconic Rotunda for some formal wedding photography with the bridal party right on the water. Afterward, we brought Kate and Joe inside the Wharf Room before guests came in for a sneak peek of their gorgeous elegant wedding reception! The decor was colorful, summery, and classic — with shades of blue, white, ivory, green, and yellow. White roses, orchids, and calla lilies were mixed with pops of bright purple and green in the stunning floral centerpieces from Lotus Designs, and soft candlelight on each table gave the room a warm and intimate glow. Each towering floral arrangement was displayed in a sleek crystal vase, and surrounded by smaller arrangements on all sides to really fill the tables with color.

The party kicked off with a traditional first dance, cake cutting, beautiful toasts from friends and family, and parent dances with the bride and groom. Once the dance floor was open, guests kicked off their heels and put on colorful flip flops to dance the night away! Before the evening came to a close, we took Kate and Joe back outside for some beautiful nighttime shots overlooking the harbor with the incredible moonlight and city lights behind them.

We had so much fun spending the day with this great couple, special thanks to The Wedding Beautiful, Inc. for a beautiful event, and the entire team at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Congratulations Kate + Joe!

In addition to the beautiful August weather we have had this summer, we have had the pleasure of capturing the wedding day for some amazing couples including Noelle + Joey! For their wedding day, they chose the always beautiful Boston Harbor Hotel to celebrate. Noelle along with her parents and bridesmaids got ready in their Back Bay residence with breathtaking views of Boston while Joey and the guys got ready back at the Hotel.

Following the ceremony at Boston’s Cathedral of the Holy Cross, we headed to the Boston Harbor Hotel for formal photos. Noelle loves bright pops of color and because she wanted her wedding to have a softer color palate, she found a way to sneak in some color for some photographs under the Rotunda with several giant balloons in bright pink, orange and yellow! Before heading to the reception, we had the opportunity to take a few more photographs at the Admiral’s Suite with roof-deck overlooking both all of downtown Boston and Boston Harbor while the was setting over the city just before sunset with the couple and their families.

The reception kicked off in the Wharf Room with the music of Night Shift and a first dance that had everybody on their feet cheering for Noelle + Joey. We asked both the couple as well as planner Janie Haas of Janie Haas Events to describe the inspirations behind this beautiful event and here is what they had to say:

From Noelle + Joey: “We wanted a soft, romantic, clean, fresh, flirty and modern Boston wedding. Most importantly we wanted the day to be fun and festive!”

We asked Janie Haas to describe the inspiration behind the design and style of the day: “After our first meeting with Noelle and Joey, I asked her to email me adjectives and phrases that would best define her vision. These are the phrases that she sent back to me: fresh, sophisticated, classically elegant, luxurious, vintage and” like a deconstructed fairytale!”  I must admit that, until we got further along in the planning, I wasn’t sure exactly how we were going to pull this off until I realized that Noelle’s fairytale wedding would be a direct reflection of Noelle who was a lot like Grace Kelly and also a lot of fun!! Using sleek mirrored tables with glass vases, orchids and candles  in conjunction with soft, ivory circle linens with luscious, full blush toned floral arrangements was just the right mix of fresh, sophisticated and elegant. The black dance floor, along with white draping and exquisite lighting finished off the room and the end result was truly magical.

While many brides and grooms are nervous on their wedding day, this beautiful couple was completely relaxed and full of fun. Noelle took pictures under the arch of the Boston Harbor Hotel with giant hot colored helium balloons which she then gave to little children who were watching with their parents. She also changed from her gorgeous wedding gown into a fabulous little party dress once the night kicked in and guests were in full party mode. As always, Nightshift kept everyone on the dance floor until the very end when late night snacks were given to all of the guests. It was a fairytale wedding, even for those of us working! Everyone had a blast!”

Thank you to Janie Haas Events – Janie and Maria and to Michael and the team of the Boston Harbor Hotel for being so wonderful to work with!  A big Congratulations to Noelle + Joey and thank you for having us there to capture your special day for you, your family and friends!

The Boston Harbor Hotel Wedding of Noelle + Joey with Janie Haas Events – Summer Boston Wedding by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – [email protected] and [email protected]

We love winter weddings, and Ali + Jimmy’s Boston Harbor Hotel wedding this January was a great way to continue this season and kick off the new year!

All the days events took place at the Boston Harbor Hotel — starting with the beautiful ceremony in the Wharf Room. Candles lined the aisle, the chandelier’s reflection in the window made the room soft and romantic and the end of the aisle was adorned with beautiful floral arrangements by Winston Flowers.

Following the ceremony, Ali, Jimmy and their wedding party were up for heading outside in the January night to get some pictures on Rowes Wharf, followed by some pictures with the newlyweds throughout the beautiful property. The various lights from the trees and venue made for a great background.

Ali’s family owns the Gingerbread Construction Co., so lots of fun personal details were incorporated throughout the night. Tables were named for different flavors of muffins (with the head table being Gingerbread Muffin — Ali’s favorite!), and guests got delicious muffins as take-home favors at the end of the night! The reception space was beautifully decorated with alternating grey and floral-detailed maroon linens, topped with gorgeous green, red, and maroon floral arrangements. Even Ali and Jimmy’s wedding cake was personalized — it was an exact replica of the cake Ali’s parents had at their wedding.

We loved spending this evening with such a great couple, thank you Ali and Jimmy!

As 2010 comes to a close, we wanted to share one more Person + Killian wedding from the end of this year. Sarah and Scott loved the Boston Harbor Hotel and knew it would be the perfect place to exchange their vows.

Both the ceremony and reception took place in the Wharf Room. The décor was inspired by the lights on Boston Harbor that can be seen from the room at night and the warmth of the holiday season.  Their wedding cake was simple and elegant — a white 3-teired cake topped with gorgeous red orchids for a pop of color. For the newlyweds, this was the perfect evening as they were “surrounded by family, close friends and the spirit of celebration”.

Below are just a few of our favorite photographs from the day. This was an amazing group of people and it was a pleasure capturing all of the emotional and fun-filled moments for such a wonderful couple.  Congratulations Sarah and Scott!
