Tags archives: Boston Summer Wedding

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!

This elegant summer wedding at the Four Seasons Boston was described by the bride as “formal fun”. Floral designer Carol Silverston went above and beyond with the gorgeous flowers and elegant decor, while the bride and groom’s infectious laughter and fun demeanor kept the energy of the entire day light and carefree.

Lauren and Ian both started their day in the Four Seasons Boston getting ready, before meeting on the hotel’s Grand Staircase for their first look. We took a short walk across the street to the Boston Public Garden for some photos with the couple before heading back to the Four Seasons for group pictures with the entire wedding party. For this traditional Jewish wedding, Lauren and Ian had a Ketubah signing before beginning the wedding ceremony. Lauren’s uncle officiated both ceremonies, keeping the bride and groom (and all of their guests) laughing and smiling the entire time. The wedding ceremony was held in the Four Seasons Governors Room under an elegant white Chuppah, where Lauren and Ian officially became husband and wife.

The Four Seasons Boston Ballroom was transformed by Carol Silverston and her team for the evening reception. Colors of classic white and dark blue were used throughout the day’s events, from the bridesmaid’s dresses through the cocktail hour decor, and this theme was continued into the evening. Carol used a beautiful mix of white linens, crystal chairs, modern glass-top tables, and white floral centerpieces with accents of dark blue in the Ballroom. An all-white dance floor and silver accents really made this event pop, and Lauren and Ian were blown away when they walked in for the first time.

Beyond the gorgeous decor, what really stood out about this wedding was the smiles and laughter that filled the entire day. Lauren and Ian performed a choreographed dance to kick off the reception (after only one night of practice) and guests packed the dance floor non-stop for the rest of the night. We were so happy to be here to celebrate this wonderful couple, special thanks to Lauren and Ian, Philip Deschamps and his team at the Four Seasons, and to Carol Silverston!

No fuss, no frills — just a gorgeous, low-key, picture-perfect Cape Cod summer wedding on the beach at the beautiful Chatham Bars Inn. The color palette was soft, the ocean was calm, the bride and groom were laughing, and everyone was happy to be there to celebrate with them.

Erin and Tom picked the Chatham Bars Inn for their wedding day for the unbeatable location — and what a location it is. Beautiful gardens, green lawns, sandy beaches, and sweeping ocean views make this a truly one-of-a-kind wedding venue. The couple had their first look on the lawn outside of the Inn, and we had no shortage of beautiful backdrops for formal photos after that. The Chatham Bars Inn lawn, front stairs and garden, and the balcony overlooking the waterfront provided some great photos of the bride and groom. We were soon joined by Erin and Tom’s wedding party and headed out to the beach. The energy of this group was just wonderful, everyone was there to have fun and celebrate and no one was afraid to get their feet a little sandy!

Erin and Tom said their “I do”s on the Chatham Bars Inn Boat House Lawn, overlooking the Cape Cod seaside. We took the bride and groom back out to the sand dunes for a few more photos after the ceremony before moving into the Beach House Grill for the reception. The couple chose a summer color palette of white and soft pink, with a touch of classic nautical stripes to match with the Cape Cod seashore. Friends and family were so happy to celebrate this wonderful day with Erin and Tom, surrounded by love and laughter — we were honored to be a part of it all.

Special thanks to Clarissa, Stephanie, and their entire team at the Chatham Bars Inn and to Erin and Tom for a beautiful and memorable wedding day!

A simple, elegant, and memorable celebration with their family and friends — that is what Meredith and Sean wanted for their Boston summer wedding. From the heart of downtown Boston to the college where they first met, and ending up at the beautiful Wellesley Country Club on a sunny summer afternoon, this couple could not have asked for a more picture perfect wedding day.

Our first location for the day was the Fairmont Copley Boston, where Meredith and Sean got ready for the day’s celebration. They chose not to see each other before the wedding ceremony, but we took advantage of the Fairmont’s elegant architecture for some individual shots of the two with their respective parties before heading to St Ignatius Church on the Boston College campus. This church held a special meaning for the bride and groom, they actually met at Boston College while they were both attending as students. We stayed on campus following the ceremony for formal photos of the newlyweds, in front of the church and on the rest of the BC grounds.

We all arrived at the Wellesley Country Club for the evening reception — there was still plenty of daylight left on this sunny summer wedding day, and we took Meredith and Sean around the property for a few more photos. The night was full of toasts, dancing, and laughter as this bride and groom celebrated their new union surrounded by their closest family and friends, exactly as they had imagined it.

Special thanks to Meredith and Sean for a beautiful wedding day full of joy and so much fun. Congratulations!

Cassandra and Nino wanted their Four Seasons Boston Summer wedding to be a classic Boston wedding that was sophisticated, clean, and timeless. They also wanted their friends, family, and guests to let loose and just have fun!

Before the celebration could begin at the Four Seasons Boston, we started the morning at Cassandra’s parent’s house where the bride and her bridesmaids got ready for the day. Each of the ladies carried a white floral bouquet, and the bridesmaid’s soft pink dresses added the perfect touch of summery color. It was a short drive from the house to St. Charles Church in Woburn, MA — the same church where Cassandra’s parents had gotten married. Cassandra and Nino got to see each other for the first time as she walked down the aisle of the church, and the couple said their “I do”s in front of an adoring crowd of family and friends. Following the ceremony, we spent some alone time with the couple getting portraits in the Boston Public Garden, before making the quick walk across the street to the Four Seasons for formal photos of the entire wedding party on the elegant Four Seasons grand staircase.

The Four Seasons Boston Ballroom was the perfect place for the classic and elegant wedding Cassandra and Nino had always imagined. The couple played off of the ballroom’s existing elegant designs with colors of white, ivory and light blush pink in their wedding details and floral arrangements. The couple’s 200 guests could not wait to start celebrating — the dance floor was packed all night and even the bride and groom couldn’t help but grab the mic and start singing along with Kahootz, their band. Guests could not have had more fun, it was a happy and energetic crowd that truly made the bride and groom’s dreams come true.

Special thank you to Cassandra and Nino for letting us be a part of this wonderful celebration, and to Philip Deschamps and his entire team at the Four Seasons Boston for a fantastic event!

Situated right in the heart of the Back Bay in Boston, the Four Seasons Hotel is one of our favorite venues for a summer wedding. The location was perfect for the traditional Jewish celebration for newlyweds Jane and David.

Before the guests arrived, Jane and David met for their first look on the grand staircase followed by photos across the street in the Public Garden on a perfect summer day.  Following their Ketubah ceremony, Jane and David said their “I do”s in a traditional Jewish wedding ceremony, encircled by their loved ones and underneath a gorgeous birch and ivy chuppah in the Governor’s Room. Everyone enjoyed cocktails and hors d’oeuvres in the ballroom foyer before heading into the ballroom for the reception.

The Four Seasons Hotel ballroom’s clean and elegant atmosphere was perfectly enhanced by the touches of white, gold, and summer pink in Jane and David’s wedding decor. Crystal vases held a mix of high and low floral arrangements, pouring over with pink, white, and lush green flowers — the ideal accent for a summer wedding in Boston. Guests enjoyed drinks, dinner, and a toast from the bride and groom, while dancing away the night with the help of music from band District 21. It was a beautiful celebration of a wonderful couple — special thanks to Jane and David for letting us be a part of your wedding day, and to Philip Deschamps and his entire team at the Four Seasons Hotel.

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!

When Deena and Joel got engaged they knew that they wanted a classically refined summer wedding. Overlooking the harbor, the Seaport Hotel located in the heart of Boston’s historic seaport, boasts no shortage of lovely spots (and photo locations!) to enjoy; it turned out to be the perfect waterside location they were looking for!

We begin the beautiful August day gathered in the bridal suite where the girls were clearly having a blast getting ready together. The atmosphere was fun and filled with excitement for the upcoming day. The sweet flowergirl, Bri, almost stole the show but Deena’s stunner of a dress, a lovely Watters gown, ensured all eyes were on this beauty. The bride completed the look with timeless pearls and a bouquet of fresh summer flowers of garden roses, ranunculus and dahlias. The gentleman spent some time prepping together too, gathering together with Joel while he suited up for the couple’s first look.

Taking advantage of the perfect day, Deena’s & Joel’s first look took place outside where they had a private moment before heading off to capture fun shots of the whole wedding party. The bridesmaids looked like a summer breeze in their dresses perfectly complimented by the groomsmen in crisp gray suits.

The ceremony took place in an elegant ballroom where rose petals adorned the aisle and a backdrop dripped in light. The look on Joel’s face as Deena walked down the aisle said it all. Officiating the ceremony was Joel’s grandfather adding personal touches and tender words of encouragement to Deena and Joel as they exchanged lifelong vows.

Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and wedding party joined in on the fun as guests sipped on the couple’s signature cocktails while enjoying hors d’oeuvres and good conversation. The reception space was draped with flowing fabric and detailed lighting that reflected the stunning floral centerpieces that were both lush and vibrant making for an intensely romantic feel. As the evening continued, the new Mr. and Mrs. spent time thanking their guests, dancing with loved ones and cutting a gorgeous five-tiered wedding cake. Once dinner progressed into dancing and the lighting dimmed, Beantown Band did what they are known to do – pack a dance floor and bring the house down! Wildly gifted and not afraid to join the party, we have so much fun capturing the candid joy the band brings to the guests.

We always love working with familiar faces, and as always, enjoyed working with the planner, Ivy Finn from Event’s By Ivy and entire team at the Seaport Hotel Boston. What a great time we had photographing this wedding!

Congratulations again to Deena & Joel – it was an honor and thank you for choosing Person + Killian Photography to capture such a special day!

We were thrilled to once gain be back at the Four Seasons Hotel for Kimberly and Daniel’s summer wedding. The entire day was full of joy, laughter and was a beautiful celebration from start to finish.  Dan is from Germany and met Kim while he was here in the states studying at the same university. Following that year, they continued dating and traveling back and forth from America and Germany in order to visit each other. During that time they did a lot of traveling together throughout Europe and the United States.

From Kim: “We had our absolute dream wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston. Family and friends traveled from as far away as Germany and California to celebrate with us on our special day. Everything about the night was perfection from the decor to the delicious food to the high energy which lasted all night!”

Following the first look on the grand staircase, we headed across the street for family and wedding party photographs on the water at the Public Garden. For the ceremony, the Governor’s Room made for the perfect location. The naturally sophisticated look and feel of the Aujourd’hui Room was enhanced for the reception with lighting by Suzanne B Lowell Lighting Design and flowers by the team at Winston Flowers.

Thank you to Philip and his team at the Four Seasons for coordinating another beautiful event as always. We had a great time working with such a sweet (and fun) couple! Congratulations Kim and Dan and we wish you a wonderful marriage full of lots of travel and adventure!

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’re nearing the end of the summer wedding season, but it’s still not too late for a gorgeous Boston Harbor summer wedding at the Hyatt Harborside Hotel.

Allison and Michael’s wedding at the Hyatt Harborside was a great example of a late-summer wedding, with touches of darker fall colors and an open tented reception to take full advantage of the golden almost-Autumn sunset. We’re not rushing into fall just yet, though — the outdoor waterside ceremony overlooking the Boston Harbor and city skyline included bright pink flowers in the bouquets, tabletops, and on the wedding cake definitely maintained the classic summer wedding feel.

There were some touches of a rustic DIY inspired details including chalkboard signs and hanging flowers in metal baskets for the ceremony. The tented reception space only a few feet away had a modern feel, mixing bright pinks and greens with a dark chocolate brown. The flowers topped with floating candles made for great centerpieces on several tables, with bright pink arrangements topping the rest.

The late summer weather was perfect for a party that continued well after sunset. Congratulations Allison and Michael!
