It was destination Boston for New York couple Ashley and Ben for their Boston Public Library wedding. Everything about their day from getting ready and the first look at the picturesque Fairmont Copley Plaza to their ceremony and reception at the library was picture perfect and we are so happy to have been chosen to capture the day for this great couple.

From Ashley – “We have been together for 7 years, so we always knew that we wanted a small and intimate wedding, surrounded by only our closest family and friends who know us and love us inside and out and have watched us grow together a couple. Our wedding was just that- you could feel the love, warmth and genuine happiness and joy permeate through the entire Boston Public Library. It was something that really stood out. That was one of the most special aspects. It was also really incredible to have everyone in Boston together – most of our guests, ourselves included, live in New York City- but bringing everyone together in Boston, where we first met, (and where bride’s parents met!) in the most beautiful, elegant, classic setting of the Boston Public Library, was so meaningful and a memory that will forever fill our hearts.”

Ashley and Ben chose Marc Hall Design to create their dream vision that complimented the stunning spaces of the library perfectly. For their traditional Jewish ceremony in the Courtyard Restaurant, the chuppah was created out of multiple shades of blush and pink as to not hint too much for the reception centerpieces. Designer David DiCicco says “Every bride says they want something different, but Ashley wanted to make sure that every centerpiece had a different shape and was filled with color. The traditional white wedding was swapped with the fall vision for gorgeous jewel tones, shades of sapphire, ruby, amethyst, garnet and topaz.”

A big highlight for the newlyweds was their first dance. “We combined the song we recorded from our Save the Date video with other favorite Justin Timberlake (our favorite artist) songs mashed up and worked on the choreographed dance for months to surprise our guests! Everyone was so excited and it really got the energy going for the whole night! It was so fun practicing together for so many months to finally perform live for all of our friends and family!”

A big thank you to Bryanne, Erica and their team at The Catered Affair at the Boston Public Library and congratulations Ashley and Ben!

The Boston Public Library Wedding of Ashley + Ben with Marc Hall Design by Person + Killian Photography – 251 Newbury Street – Boston, MA 02116 – 617.236.1662

When Julia and Jon were looking for their dream wedding venue, they quickly knew it had to be the Boston Public Library. This Boston-based couple fell in love with all of the gorgeous and unique spaces the BPL provides, and they made good use of each and every one of them at their beautiful Boston Public Library summer wedding.

Both the bride and groom utilized nearby hotels for their morning preparations — Julia and her bridesmaids got ready at the Fairmont Copley Plaza while Jon and his groomsmen spent the morning at the Westin Copley. The couple had their first look in Copley Square, right outside of the Fairmont. It was a quick walk across the street to arrive at the Boston Public Library, where we captured some formal photos with Julia, Jon and their bridal party on the BPL’s beautiful front steps. Even their dog Ellie joined in for some formals, wearing a floral garland around her neck in honor of the big day!

We moved inside with the wedding party for more photographs throughout the Library — the marble lobby, main staircase, and balconies above the courtyard were all perfect spots for photos. The wedding ceremony took place outside in the Boston Public Library courtyard, Julia and Jon said their “I do”s with one of Julia’s brothers serving as officiant. Following the ceremony guests enjoyed cocktail hour in both the outdoor courtyard and the indoor Courtyard Cafe, then it was into Bates Hall for dinner.

The couple chose colors of green and white for their reception, with elegant white table runners and lush green and white bouquets covering the dining tables and lining the walkways. A touch of colorful uplighting accentuated the gorgeous vaulted ceilings of Bates Hall and the iconic green reading lamps perfectly complemented all the summer greenery in the venue. When it was time for dancing, guests moved into the Abbey Room next door which was lit in colors of bright pink and purple for a night of fun and celebration.

We were so happy to be included in this wonderful Boston Public Library summer wedding, special thanks to Eliza Rafferty and her team at The Catered Affair at the Boston Public Library and to Julia and Jon for having us capture their wedding day!

A beautiful summer day, a classic Boston wedding venue, and a wonderful fun-loving couple — what more could we ask for! This Boston Public Library wedding began in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood, where bride Alexandra and her bridesmaids got ready for the day at her parent’s home. The ladies enjoyed a champagne toast and a few photos on the rooftop while groom Daniel and his groomsmen spent the morning a the nearby Westin Copley. One of the things we love about the Back Bay is how close by everything is — once Alexandra and Daniel were dressed and ready, it was a short walk to the Boston Public Gardens for the couple’s first look.

After a few formal photos with just the bride and groom, we were joined by the entire wedding party for some group and family photos. It was a perfect summer day in Boston, and everyone enjoyed being out in the sunshine. Before too long it was time for the ceremony, which took place at the Harvard Memorial Church. This was a special place for both Alexandra and Daniel as this is where they both went to school! After the “I do”s it was back to Back Bay and the Boston Public Library to start the celebration.

The Boston Public Library sits in the heart of Copley Square and features a gorgeous outdoor courtyard, classic old Boston architecture, and a series of beautiful event spaces. It is one of our favorite Boston wedding venues and was the perfect spot for this bride and groom to celebrate their classic and traditional wedding day. The evening started outside in the courtyard for cocktails. While guests mixed and mingled around the stunning central fountain, we took Alexandra and Daniel through the halls of the library for some formal photos. Everyone then moved into Bates Hall for dinner and dancing.

Bates Hall is the centerpiece of the Boston Public Library — with the high, arched ceilings and iconic green reading lights on each table, it has become a Boston wedding classic. The bride and groom added fresh summer flowers to each table and soft purple uplights to accentuate the space, and now it was time to party! The night was full of food, drinks, toasts, and lots of laughter as everyone came together to celebrate this wonderful couple.

Thank you to Alexandra and Daniel for being so fun and easy to work with, we could not have been happier to join you on your wedding day!

We recently had the great pleasure of photographing Chris and Zach’s sophisticated fall Boston Public Library wedding this past November. We are so fortunate to be referred by our past couples, we consider it the highest possible compliment. In the case of Chris and Zach’s wedding, we had three past couples in attendance including two of Chris’s brothers and one of Zach’s best friends who were all in the wedding party.

The gentlemen were formal in their crisp tuxes with white bow ties from Brooks Brothers while the women in the bridal party wore black floor-length gowns from Belsoie. The first look took place in Copley Square, just outside the Fairmont Copley where we captured the sweet, quiet moment.

Chris and Zach wanted to celebrate together with friends and family showcasing the city they love. While final preparations for the day were underway and just before the ceremony, Chris and Zach hopped on a trolley and visited some of their favorite locations in Boston with their wedding party. They stopped in their South End neighborhood for a few photos with their adorable lab, Ezra, and continued along to the Comm. Ave Mall as the holiday tree lights were being strung. Next, off to the Public Garden and Charles River Waterfront and finally, iconic Acorn Street in Beacon Hill.

Officiated by a good friend, the couple held their wedding ceremony in the library’s stunning Courtyard. Surrounded by their loved ones, Chris and Zach exchanged their vows. After the ceremony, cocktail hour followed in the Guastavino Room.

While guests finished cocktail hour, we made our way upstairs to Bates Hall for the reception. The quintessential green lamps along the tables popped against a vibrant array of orchids. Gorgeous lighting and linens filled out the space making it warm and inviting. After toasts and cake cutting, the Boylston Room was transformed into a lounge and the Abbey Room for dancing. A good time was had by all while we captured the hora complete with the Mannequin Challenge; an evening full of laughter and celebrating.

Thank you to the wonderful team of professionals we had the pleasure of working with on this lovely wedding and congratulations again to Chris and Zach. Thank you for letting Person + Killian Photography be a part of such a special day for you both!

For this week’s Boston Venue Spotlight we are thrilled to be showcasing the exquisite Boston Public Library with The Catered Affair. Founded in 1848, boasting stunning architecture and European charm, it’s no surprise The Boston Public Library has been featured in Best Venues in America. We have photographed show-stopping weddings at the Boston Public Library and consider ourselves pretty lucky that one of our country’s most historic and unique wedding venues is in our very own backyard!

When planning a wedding at the Boston Public Library there are several elegant spaces that will match any wedding style or inspiration.  The Abbey Room was designed after a palace in Venice and is chock-full of elegant details including rich wood paneling, full size murals, dramatic high ceilings, and marble fireplace. The Guastavino Room is ideal for those seeking a light and airy feel. Perfect for seated dinner receptions, this space boasts remarkable ceilings and columns with a slightly more modern touch. Ideal for cocktail receptions and cake cutting is the Chavannes Gallery. This space is adorned with wall murals and has an incredible view of the Boston Public Library’s grand marble staircase, which makes for some of our favorite photographs! Bates Hall, known as one of the main rooms of the library, is perfect for our newlyweds-to-be with a larger wedding. It showcases impressive domed ceilings and has fifteen windows overlooking Copley Square. Last but certainly not least, is the Boston Public Library’s lush and romantic Courtyard. Is there really anything more beautiful than be married in an outdoor courtyard beside a softly illuminated fountain with your guests nestled under the archways?

The Catered Affair, a full-service catering and event planning company, is yet another perk to choosing The Boston Public Library as your wedding venue. From passed hour-devours, full seated dinners to jaw-dropping dessert bars, The Catered affair will stun you and your guests with incredibly creative and mouthwatering cuisine that truly tastes as good as it looks.

Whether you’re wedding is large or small, summer or winter, the Boston Public Library and the Catered Affair offer endless beauty and versatility! Check out why we love photographing weddings at this historic and beautiful Boston venue in some of our 2015 wedding photography featured below:

We are always excited and honored when our weddings are featured in print. The real wedding of Lindsay “Lu” and Greg at the Boston Public Library is featured in the latest New England issue of The Knot on stands now!

From The Knot: How They Met: At Tulane University Wedding Style: Mirrored elements, oversize blooms and a glam color scheme of white, silver and pink created a luxe affair that walked the line between modern and traditional.

“Lu carried a traditional bridal bouquet of white peonies, lisianthus and light pink roses while the bridesmaids held fluffy bunches of pink peonies with accents of dusty miller. When the couple learned that Lu’s grandmother likely wouldn’t be able to make it to New York (where they live) for their wedding, they decided to get married in Boston, Lu’s hometown. ‘When the Boston Public Library popped up as a potential venue, we knew it was where we would get married,’ Lu says.”

We always love photographing at the Boston Public Library and were back there Memorial Day weekend for the wedding of Katie and Griffin. The Fairmont Copley Plaza was the perfect locale for Katie and her bridesmaids to get ready for the day in their suite while Griffin and the groomsmen enjoyed some downtime at the Oak Bar.

Katie and Griffin loved everything about the location as is and didn’t want to do too much to take away from that. They chose to keep the decor classic with shades of white, soft yellow and greens that went perfectly with the aesthetic of the library.

The courtyard provided the perferct backdrop for the ceremony that was officiated by a close family friend. Before the nuptials, the wedding party “kicked things off” by tossing coins into the fountain for good luck. At the end of the ceremony, the newlyweds joined in and tossed coins in the fountain before heading back down the aisle to celebrate. For dinner, guests were invited up the grand staircase into Bates Hall followed by dancing with the music of the Kahootz band in the Abbey Room.

Thank you to Erin and Alyssa and their team at The Catered Affair and best wishes to Katie and Griffin! We had a wonderful time capturing such a beautiful celebration for a great group of people.

We were so excited when we got the phone call from Lindsay + Greg for this wedding — we had worked with Lindsay’s family a few years ago, and we could not wait to reconnect for another wonderful event! This time around it was a gorgeous summer wedding at the Boston Public Library, and we had a blast celebrating with this fun and adorable couple.

We started the weekend at the rehearsal dinner Friday night, which took place at the Downtown Harvard Club of Boston. The dinner had a fun, seaside flair with classic white and blue decor, and beautiful floral centerpieces featuring seashells, starfish, and natural drift wood by Carol Silverston. We rejoined the bride and groom the next morning where everyone got ready at the beautiful Fairmont Copley Plaza right in the heart of Copley Square. Once they were ready to go we made the short walk across the street to the Boston Public Library.

The afternoon ceremony took place out in the stunning Boston Public Library Courtyard, which features lush summer greenery and a beautiful fountain right in the center. The bride and groom decided not to see each other before the walk down the aisle, and we loved seeing Greg’s face when he finally saw his bride! After the I Do’s, which took place under a gorgeous Chuppah, we took the newlyweds inside for some family formals on the Boston Public Library’s grand staircase. While the rest of the guests and bridal party enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres, we took Lindsay and Greg around the library for photos of just the two of them.

The evening reception took place in the Library’s Guastavino Room, which was transformed with modern mirror-top tables, white and silver linens, and a mix of black and clear chairs around each. Carol Silverston of The Original Touch created the beautiful decor and floral designs, which included  mixes of towering white and pink arrangements on each table for a wonderful pop of color. A patterned wash of cool blue and purple light gave the room a bright and colorful glow, which looked amazing on the black dance floor.

The bride and groom had so much fun and it was contagious throughout the night! Guests enjoyed their first dance (concluding with a fast choreographed portion that got everyone cheering), as well as toasts from friends and family before hitting the dance floor, packing into the photo booth, and having an absolute blast with the happy couple. The after party moved into the Boston Public Library’s Map Room and Cafe, that included a ping pong table, corn hole and giant Jenga.

We could not have been happier to share this day with Lindsay, Greg, and their wonderful families. Special thanks to the entire Catered Affair Team at the Boston Public Library, as well as Carol Silverston, Jodi Raphael and their team for such a wonderful event.

Person + Killian Photography kicked of the 2012 wedding season alongside some of our industry friends at one of Boston’s most fabulous locations. The Wedding Gala Celebration took place earlier this month at non other than the spectacular Boston Public Library.

With the combined efforts of the BPL staff,  The Catered Affair team and Gala organizers, over 250 brides and grooms-to-be had a chance to tour the library and see the latest trends in photography, event lighting and production, table linens and more in the Popular Reading Room.

For the second half of the night, guests were escorted up the grand staircase to the Abbey Room for a runway show of  the latest in bridesmaid fashion and wedding gowns.

We were thrilled to have been asked to photograph and take part in such a fun and successful event and had a great time meeting so many newly engaged couples. Let the 2012 weddings begin!

Last week we stopped by the Boston Public Library for a few minutes to take some photographs of a gorgeous room set up for an event by The Catered Affair.

The BPL’s Abbey Room looked amazing and was created by The Catered Affair’s own Ed Quinones who came up with the overall design and concept for this corporate dinner party. The white floral arrangements were by Flowers By Victoria with rentals by Be Our Guest and PBD Events. The red uplighting and white pin spots completed the look with the talents of ALPS Lighting.

Below are just a handful of the images of the beautiful completed set up prior to the event.

Every winter Person + Killian Photography has a party to say thank you to our incredible industry friends. It is our way of showing gratitude to everyone who puts their trust and support behind us and our work. We are so blessed to have met and worked with so many talented professionals and are truly grateful for the friendships we have made. We look forward to throwing this event each year and can’t thank everyone enough for being there!

Our “Winter Wonderland” event was produced & designed by the one and only Amy Kimball, who’s vision never fails to wow us! The party was hosted at the Boston Public Library and was filled with delicious food from The Catered Affair.  The beautiful floral arrangements were the signature touch of our dear and talented friend Chad Michael Peters and the night would not have been the same with out the collaboration of Port Lighting,Generations cinemastories, Stephanie Solomon (Rentals Unlimited), Larry Chan (Signs and Prints) and Kupah James who rocked the house !

A big thank you to The Catered Affair at the Boston Public Library and their entire staff for being such a pleasure to work with!

The photobooth is always one of our favorite highlights from the event!
